Hearts Wide Open

"Hearts Wide Open" was a Christian Music Category Winner:
First Place - 2016 Dallas Songwriters Association
Third Place - The Songwriters Association of Washington's 33rd Mid-Atlantic Song Contest 2016
Finalist - 18th Annual Great American Song Contest 2016

This is a demo track I recorded at Nothing But Noise studio, with backup vocals by Lexi Jackson (of Wild the Waters) and Matt Davis (of Thunder Buddies), and some nice guitar licks from Matt.

It's still unmastered, but hopefully is listenable enough to get feedback.

For those of your who are interested in a Biblical connection, here it is:

Matthew 22 New International Version (NIV)

The Parable of the Wedding Banquet
22 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: 2 “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. 3 He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come.

4 “Then he sent some more servants and said, ‘Tell those who have been invited that I have prepared my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle have been butchered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.’

5 “But they paid no attention and went off—one to his field, another to his business. 6 The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them. 7 The king was enraged. He sent his army and destroyed those murderers and burned their city.

8 “Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. 9 So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.’ 10 So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, the bad as well as the good, and the wedding hall was filled with guests.
