I just thought I would take a few to fill you guys all on what has been going on. I am proud to say that this year has been rocking and rolling since it started. I am in the midst of releasing several albums of music that have been delayed for this reason or that. Yet finally have been getting some traction and grinding it down!

Where to start, well I have been enjoying these past few months playing with some great bunch of folks at our church, Restoration Church here in Georgia. I have been really blessed by playing not only Guitar but Keyboards as well. I have been able to sharpen my skills and been able to praise the LORD thru music and being apart of a great worhsip team. I probably can say a lot more about all of that but I think I will have to wait for another blog posting LOL

As I mentioned above we are releasing several CD’s or album releases that have for one reason or another been held up and we are finally getting out on the road. Some of thes songs or tracks go back a few years , some are pretty recent. There are a LOT of rocking guitar jams on “DIVINE INSPIRATION” and a few other still yet to be heard that are going to be released on a yet album that has no name. This work is one of my personal favs with songs such as Still in Love, Leaves, Move it and Afterglow. The electric guitar is the primary instrument in those songs. A lot of instrumental Rock and smooth jazz perhaps?

Then there is this great new releases called “Refractions of Light” which is a New Age, meditative, film cues based release. I made this music to primarily help me to relax and unwind. I thought it was great for meditation and chilling. So if you are looking to find music to help you calm down , relax or un wind from a busy day or hectic schedual this release maybe just what the doctor ordered. The link provided is from the google play store where a lot of my music is.

Here is a link to the iTunes store where you can hear this album and many more tracks with a lot more being added weekly!

https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/mark-allan-wolfe/id316524485

Another album that was released this week was “Moments in Time” is a hard rocking, heavy metal , emotional metal hard album. Filled with fast paced rock n roll , emotions and grit. Some of my favs on this album are “Dementia”, “Into the Fire”, “Showdown” and one of my favorites “Your There” These are all instrumental except “I see right through” where the vocals are done by my friend Mike Grant. I will be sharing more links as the days unfold for all of these as well.

The music that is being released will be on over 150 different online retailers as well as some regular stores in the future. I will be making some links available with in the next few days on my website(s) as well as blogs, yet you can find it as well by doing a search online for my name I believe as well. Soon I will have a major one stop shopping page on my main website where you will be able to purchase music, gear, art work and other things from the store. For those of you out there who are interested in using the music for your films, T.V or Web services or where ever, feel free to email me or give a call so we can set this up for you.We will be making the licensing store available online as well as working with some great libraries and other music publishing companies to make the music more widely available.

I would really be thankful if some of you folks out there who like to listen to music and write reviews would kindly get in touch with us or write your own reviews. If you are interested in writing your reviews for this website I would be very thankful and humbled. I have nearly 3,000 songs available with more added every day.

Finally I am humbled to share that a lot of my music is being heard globally on many cable and basic TV stations and programing such as

Discovery Channel Networks, History Channel, A&E, True Tv, Velocity Channel, ABC, NBC, CBS . As well as several global brands like, Unileaver,Microsoft, Home Depot and many many more.  – See more at: http://markallanwolfe.com/projects.html 

I have a lot of other things going on as well with one of them being that I will be soon posting some podcasts or 15 min or so internet radio sho like where I will be sharing just what ever is on my heart to sharing. I would love it if you would be kind enough to let me know what you think about the music, the show or art work or what ever. I m very thankful that all of you out there support the music , and encourage others like me daily. I am so blessed to have such wonderful fans who not only purchase the music but whom pray for my family and I daily.

I will try not to wait so long on the next blog posting lOL. I have a lot to say yet as to how I get these song ideas, the story behind recording them, the people I meet and such. Keep on rocking in the free world while it is yet still free ….peace

Thought for the Day July 11, 2015

The Peace Prayer

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is error, the truth;
Where there is doubt, the faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.

How is it that most of us do not act like this? It is because we have the “I” In English, all substantives an dpronouns are written with small letters; only the “I” is written with the Capital. If I have no “I” no evil can harm me, nothing can get to me for “I” have ceased to be.

Most all the troubles in the world have sprung from the “I” For we care for it, lavish great gifts on it, when we love the “I” more than the LORD we are NOT following Jesus, we cease to be Christians. The word Christian means we are following Jesus. In Luke 9:23 Jesus said, “If anyone would come after me let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow me”

If you are dead you have no opinion, no way to get offended. You feed that which is alive….

 

Well this is your thought for the day….

 

 

 

 

The Oak Tree December 22, 2014

I was blessed by someone dear to me recently with a most unusual Christmas card. THey themselves had found it by complete accident. After themselves passing thru a great trial and being in the hospital suffering for several weeks they recieved a card that had this message in it.

After I had been in a car accident, and other situations. I was passing thru and interesting time in my life just recently. This card was sent to me. I was so blessed and touched by it I wanted to share this with all of you as well.

I trust this message stirs your hearts and breaths wind into your sails as you press onwards in your journey of life.

A mighty wind blew night and day. It stole the oak tree’s leaves away.
THen snapped its boughs and pulles its bark. Until the oak was tired and stark.
But still the oak tree held its ground. While other trees fell all around.
The weary wind gave up and spoke, “How can you still be standing, OAK?”
The oak tree said , “I know tha you can break each branch of mine in two,
Carry every leaf away, Shake my linbs, and make them sway. But I have roots
stretched in the earth, Growing stronger since my birth. You’ll never touvh them,
for you see, They are the deepest part of me. Until today, I wasn;t sure Of just
how much I could endure. But now I’ve found, with thanks to you, I’m stronger than I
ever knew.”

PACK OF LIES

It’s a big lie, that because of the massive changes in industries like music, publishing and television, that your chances of being successful are less.

It’s a big lie, that other artists & entrepreneurs are not anxious & edgy about what’s happening in the culture of art, tech and business today.

It’s a big lie, that very soon the exponential growth of technology will finally slow down and become the “new normal.”

It’s a big lie, that building a tribe of fans, followers and customers before your next product is produced, released or shipped is a waste of time & money.

It’s a big lie, that people who are ahead of you in technology got there because they’re smarter than you.

It’s very TRUE that a lack of confidence is the greatest killer of worthwhile ideas and personal genius.

Freedom and Liberty April 20, 2012

Well my friends and all those musicians out there I thought I would post something a little different today. As I was thinking about what I could possibly write I would follow in my rock n roll roots of rebellion and take on the hardest most strangest and difficult subject and just blast it with some ideas and thoughts. I know what your thinking, “Mark, I know you have no hair but I think the sun has burned your mind bro?” LOL it is all good the difficulty I am sharing about is actually with in our own minds! It is our preconceived ideas and thoughts, or attitudes towards certain issues that make it difficult for the truth to permeate into its dark corridors. Almost like a splash of cold water isn’t it? Hence now you know why I said it would be a little difficult for now I have your attention.

Anyways know first that I am not trying to persuade you into a certain way of thinking. I am not questioning your faith or belief in freedom, or making you switch from a political belief you may have. I am just wanting you, no matter where you are, no matter WHO you are, to stop and think about a few things. to remember that you are NOT a slave, you are not ignorant and you have a destiny.

I know some of you who read these little blurbs of mine come from all around the globe, but this is also for you as well. For no matter where you live or what country you hail from human freedom and liberty are common ideals to which all men and woman can relate to. You may start reading these few quotes and say this is rubbish, you may get mad at me for even posting some of these but I ask you why would you get mad or angry for me trying to encourage you to think about your freedom?

To make music or write songs is a great thing, it is embedded in my psyche. For those of you in in a backwoods,country mind set I am a creative musical person, I eat breath and sleep music. I challenge the status quo of certain beliefs to gain new insight and understanding along with also gaining different ideas to sharpen my craft. It is my job as a composer of music to try to reach into your heart and play the chords I want to play to inspire you, to move you bring you elation and joy to help you tap into your feelings of love and sensual abandonment. All along the way doing it to moving pictures that flash before your eyes. Well may I have a moment more to share with you some RARE gems of decent thought, to perhaps inspire you to think. So with out any further foot draging….

“Let the American youth never forget, that they possess a noble inheritance, bought by the toils, and sufferings, and blood of their ancestors; and capacity, if wisely improved, and faithfully guarded, of transmitting to their latest posterity all the substantial blessings of life, the peaceful enjoyment of liberty, property, religion, and independence.”

Joseph Story (Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833) Reference: Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 718.

“Cherish, therefore, the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. Do not be too severe upon their errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them.”

Thomas Jefferson (letter to Edward Carrington, 16 January 1787) Reference: Jefferson: Writings, Peterson ed., Library of America(880)

“Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of freedom.”

John Adams (Defense of the Constitutions, 1787) Reference: The Learning of Liberty, Prangle and Prangle (96); original The Works of John Adams, C.F. Adams, ed., vol. 6 (168)

“The value of liberty was thus enhanced in our estimation by the difficulty of its attainment, and the worth of characters appreciated by the trial of adversity.”

George Washington (letter to the people of South Carolina, Circa (1790) Reference: Maxims of George Washington, Schroeder, ed. (16); original The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, Fitzpatrick, ed., vol. 31 (67)

“No country upon earth ever had it more in its power to attain these blessings than United America. Wondrously strange, then, and much to be regretted indeed would it be, were we to neglect the means and to depart from the road which Providence has pointed us to so plainly; I cannot believe it will ever come to pass.”

George Washington (letter to Benjamin Lincoln, 29 June 1788) Reference: George Washington: A Collection, W.B. Allen, ed. (403)

“Liberty must at all hazards be supported. We have a right to it, derived from our Maker. But if we had not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us, at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasure, and their blood.”

John Adams (A Dissertation on the Canon and Feudal Law, 1765) Reference: The Revolutionary Writings of John Adams, Thompson, ed. (28)

“Men of energy of character must have enemies; because there are two sides to every question, and taking one with decision, and acting on it with effect, those who take the other will of course be hostile in proportion as they feel that effect.”

Thomas Jefferson (letter to John Adams, 21 December 1817) Reference: The Writings of Thomas Jefferson (Memorial Edition), Lipscomb and Bergh, eds., 15:109.

“Liberty, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth.”
George Washington

“I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.”
Thomas Jefferson

“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.”
Thomas Jefferson

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”
Thomas Jefferson

“Those who give up essential liberties for temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
Benjamin Franklin

“The means of defense against foreign danger historically have become the instruments of tyranny at home.”
James Madison

“If tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.”
James Madison

“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
Abraham Lincoln

“The obligations of our representatives in Washington are to protect our liberty, not coddle the world, precipitating no-win wars, while bringing bankruptcy to our people.”
Ron Paul

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free,
Luke 4:17-19

“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive.
1 Corinthians 10:22-24

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
Galatians 5:1-3

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh ; rather, serve one another humbly in love.
Galatians 5:12-14

“It should be your care, therefore, and mine, to elevate the minds of our children and exalt their courage; to accelerate and animate their industry and activity; to excite in them an habitual contempt of meanness, abhorrence of injustice and inhumanity, and an ambition to excel in every capacity, faculty, and virtue. If we suffer their minds to grovel and creep in infancy, they will grovel all their lives.”

John Adams, Dissertation on the Canon and Feudal Law, 1756

Well I hope I have inspired you to think of a few things. I hope I have caused you to for at least a moment to ponder what our founding fathers went thru as men, and human beings. How they were all willing to suffer and give us, our freedom and liberty. They fought against the tyranny of the day and prevailed. I think we can learn a lot from them, their courage and wisdom inspires me to be a better man. I do hope you have enjoyed your read and I trust the you would give some of this music of mine a listen for you never know what may inspire you along the way. Now you know what is sometimes behind my thoughts and the music.
