Crusades - Released June 16, 2024

Crusades

Dave Dougherty

This is a full realization of a song I wrote over 30 years ago - inspired by a poem written by Penny Dougherty. Until now I wasn't able to do a recording I was happy with. After I finished Seeking Solace, this song came to mind again and I realized I have way, way, way more tools and toys to play with to really bring this to life.

I wrote this song in September of 2020 as part of a weekly scripture challenge I was doing with a friend. Every week, one of us would pick a scripture passage and then we would each write something revolving around that passage. That week, I picked Psalm 23. I did a demo recording at the time and then pretty much forgot about it.

I wrote this song in September of 2020 as part of a weekly scripture challenge I was doing with a friend. Every week, one of us would pick a scripture passage and then we would each write something revolving around that passage. That week, I picked Psalm 23. I did a demo recording at the time and then pretty much forgot about it.

Fast forward to September of 2023 and I and my brother and his family and my sister were sitting with my mother in her hospital room in her final days. I recalled that Psalm 23 had always been a favorite of hers and was quietly reading that scripture to her. At that point she was pretty much non-responsive but I believe she was able to hear us. Then I recalled the song I wrote three years prior and found I had that demo recording with me. I asked my brother and sister if it was ok with them if I played it for our Mom and they said sure. Just as I finished, a nurse walked in and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. My sister-in-law told her we were going to need a minute. My Mom passed away the next day.

Fast forward again to March of 2024 and a friend suggested that I should record the song "for real", and that I should ask some friends to play parts or sing harmonies with me. Originally, I thought I’d just put all the parts together in one version. But as I got tracks from friends and family, they all had their own style and personality and I felt they would be better served as a collection of duets with these dear friends and family members.

I am so grateful to everyone who contributed their time and talents to this project and to all those who encouraged me along the way.

While my first album had a quiet/meditative feel to it, this EP is anything but that. It is high energy guitar and synth driven anthemic rock music that hopefully will pump you up and motivate you. If you like melodic lead guitar parts, throwback synth sounds, or just punchy rock instrumental music you should check this out.

When my daughter turned 30, I was inspired to write a solo acoustic guitar song for her. That started a tradition that I kept up when each of my two sons turned 30. This year I completed the last of the three songs. Five years have transpired since the first song to the last, and I have now decided to bring them all together and release them on an EP. Each of these songs has a story as unique as the child they were inspired by - and written for.
