"for me, music is so much more than a profession, a passion or even an art form; it's a way of life."

As both an avid creator and consumer of music, I can't imagine what life would be like without it.  Music doesn't define me, but it has certainly shaped me. It's my outlet for creativity; it's how I make a living; it colors my mood and helps me express my emotions.  For me, music is so much more than a profession, a passion or even an art form; it's a way of life.

"Yes, the song structures and lyrics are simple, but they're intended to be so that they're accessible to anyone and everyone.  Unlike Mainstream Music, which is self-contained in its meaning, Worship Music has a much loftier purpose; it's a vehicle to connect with God."

- Jamie Bramble

 

Worship is an incredibly important aspect of the modern church.  It's a time when people can lose themselves completely in the music, essentially let everything in their lives go, and focus completely on God.  Worship, then, serves as a means to alignment with the Heavenly Father, so to lead worship is to act as a conduit in that alignment.

Worship Music has its very own culture, one that must be experienced first hand if it's to be understood and appreciated.  To a mainstream musician, the simple song structures and lyrical content are often times misconstrued as a lack of creativity or musicality - in reality, though, the simplicity is often times by design.  Yes, the song structures and lyrics can be quite simple, but they're intended to be so that they're accessible to anyone and everyone.  Unlike Mainstream Music, which is self-contained in its meaning, Worship Music has a much loftier purpose; it's a vehicle to connect with God.

I currently lead Worship with the band, SMPLCTY, at Simplicity Church OKC, a new church plant in Oklahoma City that meets in historic Automobile Ally.

Husband & Father

Far and away my most important roles I play are that of husband and father.  I spent so much time during my youth looking to fill these overwhelming yet unidentified voids in my life; it wasn't until I met my now wife that I understood what was missing.  I wholeheartedly believe that a man is nothing without the love and support of his family; I'm simply a much better human being because of my wife and three children.
