Biography

Music is something hard to describe and interpret. It has meanings different to each individual. To David Harper music is a doorway to a heartfelt connection with the Lord. He is a singer/songwriter whose passion and maturity brings music that soothes and even heals the soul. He has published songs such as Lavish My Love and a top 10 CCRB Radio song titled With You Again. In the past David has worked as an assistant engineer and production assistant to Josh Groban, Destiny's Child, Savage Garden, Hall and Oates Producer/Programmer/Engineer Greg Bieck. He has also completed a project for Word/Warner Bros and helped with recordings for INO and Virgin Records. He began his journey with a guitar at the age of 14 by learning folk and country tunes. This music eventually led to a calling of worship to God. To David worship music is not just music, its a joy and overflowing path into his heart. With musical influences such as Coldplay, John Mayor, Sigur Ros, Mindy Smith, U2, and Matt Redman, David has crafted his own blend of music. With the vibe of the alternative artist and the organic sound of the acoustic guitar he has perfected music unique in itself. His songs radiate in creative colors of true worship and devotion to a God bigger than us all. David's song "everything" recently won the 2007 Independent Music Awards for best song in the Gospel/Contemporary Music Genre. He currently is writing country, pop, and christian songs and networking with writers and publishers in Nashville, TN

Center of your Soul

Written By: David Harper

Verse 1
Am F C
I've been made right in the sight
Gno3 Am F
Of a King and walked the path

Of few that are free

With all that You've done there's
C Gno3 Am
More that You give You welcome
F C Gno3
Me in and call me friend

Chorus 1
Am F
You got me in the center
C Gno3
Of Your soul
Am F
And You lift me high to glorify
C Gno3
Your own
Am F C
You're never far away from those
Gno3
That love Your name
Am F Gno3 C
You daily call me to the center of Your soul

Verse 2
Am F C Gno3
In this place of rest You speak
Am F C Gno3
& reveal the secrets of Your heart
Am F C
For I know I'm not alone in this

Life you lead me onward

Never leaving me side
