All I Live For is more than a song or the title of this debut release from singer/songwriter Cindy Endres. "All I live for is to worship God: He is the source of every song, my motivation to sing, and the only One worthy of all praise!" says Endres on the insert of her release.
Each original song features Cindy's unique voice that some have compared to the Indigo Girls and others to Sheryl Crow. Her songs feature overtly Christian lyrics and cover a variety of styles, including rock, folk, country, and swing. The title track, All I Live For., is filled with upbeat energy fueled by the front bass and drum mix. Such Love has the feel of a soaring ballad with harmonies and vocal overdubs; while several songs feature beautifully executed piano/vocal mixes. Prayer for Cleansing takes a step into a new age sound with an up-front flute and acoustic guitar mix and I Love You Lord, lead by acoustic guitar, is colored by haunting strings as well as a few surprises in the bass line. Track 7, Day of Visitation, starts tentatively and builds in emotion with a rousing electric guitar solo carrying the song to its finale. The last track, All the Time, is a swing tune, with layered trumpets, straight-forward bass and drums, and a jazzy vocal.
Cindy has been writing praise and worship songs for eight years and many of her songs have been sung by local churches throughout her native New England and in New Jersey. She took what she describes as "a leap of faith" off the familiar platform of leading congregational worship into the unknown of the recording studio in 2003, and All I Live For is the result of that leap.
Back in the studio, working on project number two, Cindy explains her motivation:" I'm compelled by the love of God to communicate all He has done for me, that He may become real to those who haven't known His love. I want to sing the song He has sung over me for all the world to hear. I want to give God glory!" She also credits close friends and family as the support she needed to survive in this strange new world of recording and production. Many of these friends and family are also the artists you'll find in the credits on "All I Live For".
Cindy's "leap of faith" is fast becoming lifestyle, one she is handling with greater ease these days. Endres explains: "The goal of my music is to encourage others to worship God with me. When I put on headphones in the studio, it's not just to execute a vocal performance, though initially this was my main focus. I've learned to I sing in the studio like I do everywhere else, as an offering of praise to God Almighty. I pray this is communicated through the music, this something mystical, something supernatural, and at the same time, something so real it's tangible that happens as I worship and the Lord shows up to listen. I pray it's experienced by others, because the God I sing for is real and active in the earth today. There are no boundaries to true worship: I can praise God as I lead worship, as I kneel by my bed, as I drive along the parkway, and as I record in the studio. The Lord sits down in the midst of praise, stays there a little while to visit. I feel at home when I'm laying down a vocal, or recording strings, or playing my flute in a session, because as I do, the studio fades away and I am in the presence of God Himself. It's awesome! Awesome! What a lifestyle!"
Worship is "all she lives for", and it's lived in the midst of some great music. Cindy is joined on this project by long time friend and fellow musician, guitarist Daniel T. Cox, who played bass, acoustic, and electric guitar. Also contributing were Steven Day Carter on percussion, professional musician and drum instructor, as well as local jazz trumpeter Warren Vache, who performs regularly at Cornerstone in Metuchen, NJ. Cindy recorded the keyboard tracks herself, and also plays flute on two songs. Add a little harmony, some good friends singing back-up, a few children laughing, and a rain stick, and you have a real good listen, one that surprises you a little with each track.
Cindy Endres is new to the Indie market, but she'll be hanging around. "I have so many songs to sing. I've been writing and performing for eight years, and that will continue. The inspiration for my music is the love of God, which knows no end!" Look for previews of her second release coming up at her website (https://www.tradebit.com) in the fall. Enjoy!
