"Under The Lights: Dave Lemieux & House of Soul"

Jazz at Jack’s owners Steve and Sandra Watts went out on a limb last month and found that limb not to break. They took a chance and invited Dave LeMieux & House of Soul to come and bring a little “church” to the club, with an emphasis on remembering the fortieth anniversary of the death of Civil Rights leader, Martin Luther King Jr.

Attendance was good for a Monday night, and on April 7th, 2007, LeMieux and the gang brought the gospel goods to a very enthusiastic and engaged crowd. LeMieux, whose day gig is Director of Worship Arts for the Aurora campus of Colorado Community Church, is one of the most undiscovered talents in the Denver area.

An award-winning singer, songwriter, and arranger, LeMieux’s R&B style vocal abilities are hard to match, even when compared to nationally lauded singers - and sing he did. LeMieux didn’t waste a note, along with five other equally passionate, top notch gospel singers from the Denver area.

With the solid execution of jazz, Latin, gospel, and inspiring Civil Rights faire by an air-tight band, including three horn players that would rival the best of Colorado’s jazz scene, those in the audience previously unfamiliar with LeMieux’s music were astonished by the quality of musicianship and showmanship dished up by a bunch of “church musicians.” “This is my first Dave LeMieux experience,” said Watts. “I love it. I am very personally moved.”

Bio

With a heart for worship and an appreciation for good music, Dave LeMieux and House of Soul bring their own expression of funk, soul, swing, Gospel, jazz and fun to God music. Driven by the sincere desire to craft embraceable songs, the band is committed to reflect this pursuit through melodies, lyrics, arrangements and accompaniment that mirror God’s universal love for His people, to promote worship, unity and community within His universal Church. Led by Dave LeMieux, Worship Pastor of Colorado Community Church of Aurora of 10 years, House of Soul consists of a sometimes revolving array of accomplished musicians and vocalists from diverse backgrounds whose individual influences, including R&B, Classical, Jazz and Latin to name a few, are evident in the band’s eclectic style of music. “For the past year, Nicole Walters and I, with the occasional random but sheer genius visit from Chris Lang, have met on Friday mornings solely to write music,” says Dave LeMieux. “I believe we have, at least for now, captured the ‘sound’ of House of Soul, which I define as free with regards to genre, broad with regards to style, and wide regarding its message and appeal. Not that we’re trying to be all things to all people, but our band itself is full of racial, ecclesiastical and musical diversity. Our music is a deliberate extension of that.” Dave LeMieux and House of Soul is as comfortable playing grassroots Gospel like that of The Blind Boys of Alabama as they are the contemporary worship of Keith Getty and Stuart Townend.

Though from different backgrounds and musical experience, the residents of House of Soul are brought together by a common love of God, His people and toe-tappin’ and head-noddin’ rhythms to celebrate and share the joy, freedom and intimacy found in worship, and to simply have a funky good time.

Dave LeMieux & House of Soul completed their first live CD, Live in the Spirit, in June, 2007. The CD, produced by Grammy-nominated producer Dom Camardella, features the winning song from Integrity Music’s Worship Songwriting Workshop song competition held in Estes Park, Colorado in 2007, More. “We’re excited to share this season that we’re in with God’s church, and what better way to do that than through a live recording? After all, a live record is much better than a dead one.”
