It's my mission in life to make music that will inspire people to feel richer emotions, think deeper thoughts & make a positive difference in the world with their lives.
I have my father, Harmony, my youth pastor, Trent Redmann
, & my college music mentor, David Pedde
to thank for encouraging me to pursue the use of the musical gifts by which I've been blessed.
I've been married for 4 years to an incredibly talented (& beautiful) songwriter, Amaryah
. Her & I met at North Central University in Minneapolis, MN where we graduated with degrees in music. It was there that we began sharing our songs with the world.
After moving to the Chicago area, 5 years ago, I began volunteering & later working with my father-in-law at La Grange Christian Assembly
, in La Grange, IL. I currently serve as the music director alongside a great team of volunteers on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings.
A couple of years ago Amaryah & I were blessed with a house just outside of Chicago that we've been
able to share with friends
& our band, We Are the Preamble
. The band members have since married & moved out which left us with room for me to build my studio & a Super Mario themed room for our 1st child, Harmony Ezekiel LaBeff III, born on June 10, 2011.
Our family, church & hopes are all growing into something beautiful for God. I hope we get to share our music with you sometime soon!
