Entitled A Wise Man's Tragedy, the majority of the
group's first album was produced by Brad O'Donnell, a noted songwriter
known to many Christian music fans as husband and bass player
for Erin O'Donnell. Dove Award winning songwriter and producer
Don Koch also contributed to the project. Lyrically, the project
has a depth that will make listeners think, ranging from the passionate
cut, "Waterfall," revealing the magnitude of God's love
for us, to the biblical story of "Mary's Alabaster Jar,"
co-written with Brad O'Donnell. "Fireside" tells of
how our heart is Christ's home, based on the story by Robert Boyd
Munger, and reflects on the time that we spend with Him there.
Hailing from Michigan, Tennessee, and Illinois, these
three guys grew up loving music, and dreaming big dreams, but
the reality of adulthood and family life took them elsewhere.
Mike made a name for himself in the shipping business after college,
and after pursuing a solo career in music, had all but given it
up. Kevin sold his guitars and amplifiers to pay for rent and
diapers, in a tough period before landing a job in the printing
industry, forcing him to give up playing guitar for almost 10
years. Scott, from a family of music industry veterans, kept close
to the music, from his days as a popular mobile DJ to a stint
in a resort band on Michigan's famed Mackinac Island.
With A Wise Man's Tragedy hitting stores only two
years after the group first began playing together, it is easy
to see the grand scheme that God has working in the lives of Scott,
Mike, and Kevin. Weaving together lives and experiences, lyrics,
and harmonies, Solomon's Wish creates a tapestry that reflects
God's hand in their own walk, inviting listeners to become a part
of that experience.
