Biography

On his dynamic and compelling debut EP, Orange County, California based singer/songwriter Pasquale Talarico aka Pasquale continues his thriving career as a regional Contemporary Christian Music sensation with a simple declaration to the world that God is My Everything.

Collaborating with producer Jerroll Lehman (Bill Gaither, Sandi Patti, Jon McLaughlin, The King’s Brass) Pasquale drew on an incredible well of prayer and divine inspiration to create My Everything. Recorded in Nashville My Everything features some of the city’s top call musicians, guitarists Jerry McPherson and Mike Payne, drummer Scott Williams, bassist Joeie Canaday, keyboardist Jason Webb and saxophonist Mark Douthit. Collectiviely they’ve contributed to projects with artists such as Reba McIntire, LeeAnn Rimes, Natalie Grant, CC Winans and many more.

“My Everything shares intimate details about my faith journey,” says Pasquale, a self professed “man of faith always wanting more. I recognize that I am a broken man, yet with God's grace I am able to keep going”. “These songs,” he adds, “are my authentic way to share my relationship with God. There is love, pain, sadness, and joy in each of them. I hope when people listen to them, they feel a connection. If one of the songs speaks to them, helps them with their journey, in the end, that is the greatest compliment a songwriter can get”.

While he’s been active in youth ministry in Southern California for many years and has performed hundreds of church related shows over the years, many of Pasquale’s longtime fans are fascinated when they learn about his unique musical background. As bass player for the renowned Orange County, California based pop punk band Supernovice.

Pasquale’s powerful transition from secular rocker to budding CCM star began when he helped bring contemporary, rock-driven praise and worship music into the Catholic church he served at in Southern California.

Speaking further about his evolution from secular pop musician to a Christian artist who sees his music as a part of his life’s ministry, Pasquale adds, “My younger days were those of a punk rock bassist looking for life’s biggest party. As I’ve gotten older, I have found the biggest party is something much bigger than me. I thank God for the gifts I have been given, and hope that with the release of My Everything, my music will make more people than ever dance, sing and want to praise God.”

Lyrics

My Everything

Written By: Talarico

I turn my back on You
Once again
I seem to walk away
And I don’t know what to say
I don’t know what to say

I need You in my life
I need You more each day
Speak to me Oh God
Speak to me today

No matter how far I run
No matter how much I hide
It doesn’t seem to matter with you by my side
I will sing of Your strength, I will cry of your love;
You are my fortress,
You are my everything.

So heal this heart of mine
Make it whole again
Fill me with your grace
So that I may understand
Understand

No matter how far I run
No matter where I hide
It doesn’t seem to matter with you by my side
I will sing of Your strength,
I will cry of your love;
You are my fortress,
You are my everything.

Turn the Radio On

Written By: Talarico

She sits alone at her window sill
Looking for her piece of joy
The world outside is oh so still
Yearning for that special voice

It’s getting much louder now
Its getting bright as day

Turn the radio on
and hear God sing,
All the angels join His voice
and all creation rings

Turn the radio on
and hear Love sing
Let the music fill your heart
and begin to believe.

The world outside is listening
Trying to hear their special tune
One that will change everything
A song for all, for all to sing!

It’s getting much louder now
Its getting bright as day

Turn the radio on
and hear God sing,
All the angels join His voice
and all creation rings

Turn the radio on
and hear Love sing
Let the music fill your heart
and begin to believe.

For we worship you
We give you thanks
We praise you for your glory
We worship you
We give you thanks
We praise you for your glory

Cause this darkness all will go away
And soon we will hear them say

Turn the radio on
and hear God sing,
All the angels join His voice
and all creation rings

Turn the radio on
and hear Love sing
Let the music fill your heart
and begin to believe.

Remember Me

Written By: Talarico

Remember me
When you come into your kingdom
When you find that love has finally set you free
Remember me
When I ask for your forgiveness
And my sin is washed away clean

Remember me
When I kneel before You
Remember me
When I put my arms around You
When my brokenness has finally been relieved

Remember me
When I stand in my frailty
When I fall and need your hands to rescue me
Remember me
When all seems lost and broken
And my heart yearns for nothing more than peace

Remember me
When I kneel before You
Remember me
When I put my arms around You
When my brokenness has finally been relieved

Through you, we are made whole
With you, our hearts will adore
in the glory of God our Father
In the fullness of his Son
Through the grace of God’s true love
We are made one
