Andee is the founder of Land of Seven Rivers and one of the significant songwriters for this genre of music based on the sounds of nature.
His personal experience with God and his study around how God is accessible through the sounds of nature has been a strong part of his development. This way of thinking, in conjunction with sound biblical theology, has created in him a desire to create opportunities for people to experience the rest and rhythm of God through his music and ministry.
Andee lives in Melbourne, Australia with his wife Fran. They have two adult children Dean and Stef.
Paul is a percussionist who believes that percussion is a form of dance.
Paul’s approach to rhythm makes him ideal for combining with the nature sounds that form the foundation of many of the Land of Seven Rivers songs. He accompanies the natural sounds rather than imposing a tempo or rhythm.
His belief is that percussion is not a foundational instrument. Musically it is not even the icing on the cake. Percussion is more like the decorative sprinkles on top.
Paul is an atmosphere changer and his sensitivity to the moving of the Holy Spirit shines in the sensitive manner of playing.
Paul lives in Melbourne with his wife Sandy and son Samuel.
