A couple of years ago, I was browsing the LifeWay bookstore at Southern Seminary and came across an odd-looking red CD called The Gadsby Project by a group called Red Mountain Church. I listened to a couple of tracks and was intrigued by the forgotten hymns that were included on the project. I bought the CD and went home to listen some more. The next day, I went back to the bookstore and bought all their CDs.

You might be unfamiliar with Red Mountain Church. The group is based in Birmingham, Alabama. They take old hymn texts and put them to new music. They have five CDs available (and one on the way) – all of which are worthy of attention.

I recently recorded a podcast interview with three of the main musicians/singers for Red Mountain Church: Brian Murphy, Clint Wells, and Ashley Spurling (the main vocalist… listen to a couple of her songs and you’ll realize why). The interview also includes snippets of some of their songs.

Some of the questions I ask:

  • Why the Gadsby hymnbook?
  • How do you come up with the new melodies for the old hymns?
  • What’s the writing process like?
  • What project is coming up next?

Download the interview here: (Right-click, and then choose “Save Target As…” to your computer).

    I loved the interview!

    Great interview. I’ve been listening to RMM for a few years now and their music and Indelible Grace’s have almost become a soundtrack for good and bad in my life. Great music that always points back to Christ and scripture.

    Their music is wonderful, and they are so talented in how they create such beautiful music to those old hymn texts. My personal favorite is “Pensive, Doubting, Fearful Heart” from the Gadsby Project. Our little boy sings along in the car with “Help My Unbelief.”

    God bless you Red Mountain Church. And keep up the good work!
