Biography

We want our music to be on God's refrigerator!

We do not ask for any fee to play. You are free to donate whatever you feel led to give, or are able to give, to further this music ministry. It's between you and God.

Why Instrumentals?

Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

Why Instrumentals with Lyrics?

John 3:11 We speak that we do know, and testify
that we have seen.

Recordings:

Are done live as impromptu instrumental Jams (an occasional vocal here and there) with nine dollar microphones on an old cassette recorder. It is the composition of the songs and not the performance of the music that drives Blynd Fyth. It is the motivation of our hearts to worship God with the best of our individual and collective ability.

Scrod Bartimaeus Porter aka Papa Scrod...
has been in and out of the music business since the 70's. He worked with some high profile musicians on a Grammy Award winning song in the early 80's.

Scrod left the music behind when his daughter was born, to take the time to raise a family, as a full time actually there Papa. A tough call. But totally worth it. They made millions, but Scrod made a difference!

Now Scrod is back, the family grown, he dusted off 'Athena' (1965 Mustang) and is ready to Rock n Roll, this time for God, GOSPEL GRUNGE is alive and well.

Bongo is a self taught, instinctive drummer, out of the Classic Rock n Roll greats. He first played in church when he was 12 years old and has bearly missed a Sunday since. He's played in Spain on a missions tour and is in great demand in the North Jersey area. He plays a Premier Artist Maple set, sea green. He has it cusomized to sound like something between Jon Bonham and Stewart Smith. His family loves it when he tours, it gets the drums out of the living room. He is single, and will be majoring in Missions at PBU.

Lyrics

Stoned

Written By: Scrod Porter

Instrumental about the martyrdom of Saint Stephen by stoning...

Are you willing to die for your faith like Stephen?

Acts 7:55-60
55. But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,
56. And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.
57. Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord,
58. And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul.
59. And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.
60. And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

Light It Up

Written By: Scrod Porter

Are you a light for the world?

Matthew 5:14-16

14. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Instrumental

Pass It Down

Written By: Scrod Porter

Will you pass the gospel on to the next generation?

Luke 1:46-50

46. And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,
47. And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
48. For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
49. For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.
50. And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.
