An Interview with

Composer Carolyn Kardinal
Part 1

Read Part 2 of Carolyn’s Interview

Watchfire Music Composer Carolyn Kardinal is a prolific writer of sacred songs that have been sung widely in churches throughout the United States and abroad.  Carolyn is not only a composer, but she is also a truly gifted lyricist.  Her songs possess memorable, “sticky” melodies — they leave you humming the tune long after the song is over — and  Carolyn’s lyrics contain ideas and images that take you on journeys of the soul, bringing healing inspiration.

I have enjoyed my many conversations with Carolyn over the last year since she first brought her sheet music catalogue to Watchfire Music.  Additionally, I have loved the experience of performing Carolyn’s music.  The response to her particular songwriting talent is always immediate and filled with testaments of healing and gratitude.  Enjoy reading on as Carolyn shares with us her wisdom and experience as a creative artist in Inspirational music.

=================================

WFM Composer Carolyn KardinalJW:  What is your earliest impression or memory of music?

CK:  I grew up in Seattle, but both my parents’ families were in Southern California where we spent our holidays. I remember sitting in the back seat of the old Ford, passing those long boring miles by singing.  And on those cold, drizzly, pre-TV, winter nights in Seattle, I recall everyone sitting around listening to classical records.  I’d go dancing around the living room on the fast orchestral pieces, or during those beautiful soprano arias, I would sit staring into the coals of the fireplace.

The Master’s Voice

There is a lady who spends her days in an incredible place on the planet. She lives at the foot of the Front Range in Colorado where she composes beautiful ballads, solo songs and choral pieces for her church and the world.

She writes lyrics that soar and offer expressions of gratitude, joy, devotion, inner reflection, comfort, worship and praise. Her music is inspired. Remarkably, this lady’s method of tithing to her church is to offer her music on the internet as free sheet music downloads. What a gift!

Sally Deford is a prolific composer of Christian Inspirational music that crosses over many religions. She is a member of the Mormon Church, yet much of her music lives and breathes in other church denominations as well. (more…)
