NEW SONGLAB EP: "LIVE FROM SOUTH EDEN"
ABOUT THE SONG
“My Favorite,” featuring Gideon Roberts and Abbie Simmons, is the first single on Songlab’s debut EP “Live from South Eden.” It is a collection of worship songs written by worship leaders from churches across the country at our Songlab events.
The heart of Songlab is to highlight worship leaders and songs that highlight Jesus.
OUT ON ALL PLATFORMS!
MEET THE FOUNDER
It all started about 8 years ago with a desire to have someone come alongside me to help me grow as a songwriter and worship leader. Funny enough, I was watching a cooking competition on TV and marveled as chefs made amazing creations with difficult limitations and crazy deadlines. They did what seemed impossible because someone pushed them past what they thought they could do! So, instead of waiting for someone to mentor me, I put together a songwriting intensive with challenges that I would want to put myself through over and over to become a better writer and grow in the Lord. Michael and I had just been asked to lead the worship ministry at the UPPERROOM and so I asked the other worship leaders and singers of the prayer room to join me (I think it was around 10 of us). And wow... the beautiful and unexpected fruit that blossomed from that time together! Many wrote their first songs during this time; my heart came alive as we grew in unity and creativity as a team and church!!!The desire I had to be mentored was being fulfilled by me helping others grow!
Fast forward to last year (and a long story short), I felt the Lord move my heart to open up these “writing intensives," condense them into a weekend and invite worship leaders from anywhere who longed to write the songs that the Lord had put on their hearts. With that, SongLab was born!
My heart for SongLab is to help fulfill the command to “sing a new song to the Lord” and to watch the church begin to lead in creativity again.
Meredith and Michael Mauldin spent 7 years pioneering the worship at UPPERROOM and were the founders of their label and publishing company.
She executive produced multiple albums and continues to lead worship and write new songs.
"Michael and Meredith Mauldin are treasures. They have had a massive influence in shaping the worship and song writing culture at UPPERROOM. They were the keys God used to unlock creativity and confidence in our worship community. God is using them to usher in a (much needed) creative renascence to the nations through the local church.
"I can not recommend them enough as leaders, strategic partners and creative parents to emerging artists, singers and musicians. If you want to establish, grow or mature a culture of creativity through worship and the arts, the Mauldins are your people!! They do this as well as anyone I know."
