Butterflyfish began with a watermelon picnic. While the kids ate and played, the grown-ups got to talking about music, about faith, and about how best to pass on and enjoy the old, old stories in beautiful new ways.
Like many parents, we knew that our kids were connected spiritually with the world, but we couldn’t find much music to help them deepen and develop that connection. And so we started to write songs, and sing them together in our living room – and after too many picnics to count, Butterflyfish was born, butterflies and fish being two of the most ancient, delightful symbols of Christianity.
But before long, we realized we weren’t just writing songs for our kids. We were also writing for ourselves, and for people of every age looking for ways to strengthen those same spiritual connections and engage those same stories.
