Before meeting and having the opportunity to photograph Kendall performing, his amazing new release T.I.M.E had already moved me, just as Kendall put it “I’m so grateful that “Time” spoke to you”.  In deed it has.   I am looking forward to having this beautiful tune as part of my Haiti project.

“I believe I was placed here on this Earth to inspire those that have lost sight of their dreams to encourage those that have lost all hope and to help heal the broken.  My desire is to create and perform heart felt music not only to stimulate the heart and mind but reach and touch the soul.  “T.I.M.E.” – Truths in Many Experiences  –  Kendall Ramseur

Kendall is just amazing and inspiring !!

Ashmont Hill


Ashmont Hill is an idyllic community in Boston from which a large, loving family was birthed into musical tradition. The Thompson family has made beautiful, spiritual music for years in Jubilee Christian Church – the church in which their father is Bishop. Phil Thompson, Sisters April Joy Thompson and Deborah Bullock, along with Deborah’s husband, Wil Bullock heard the call from The Lord to bring their music to a larger community, and have set out, as in Psalm 69:30 to “…praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.”

I am so grateful to Ashmont Hill for there support and there blessings!!  Phil, April, Deborah and Wil thank you for giving me the opportunity.

Visit the two links below to one amazing story of Ashmont Hill’s journey with Christ and there newly released album “The Maze” and my personal favorite “Your Love Lifted Me”.
