Fish With Me

Ken Canedo and Jesse Manibusan

Back together again! Ken Canedo and Jesse Manibusan have once again joined forces to bring us an eclectic, fun, rocking collection of contemporary music. Speaking directly to the concerns of today—safety and reassurance in a time of terrorism, inclusiveness in a time of division and hope in a time of uncertainty—Fish With Me couldn't be more timely.

A mix of fun and funky, smooth and slow, this eight-song collection hits all the right chords, in every sense of the word. Spanning the gamut from gentle guitar-based ballad and choral praise anthem to hard-rocking indie pop, Fish With Me offers a wealth of new music for liturgy, music that is geared toward the needs and skills of today's pastoral musicians.

Songs: Fish with Me • Be with Me, Lord • In the Beginning • Hold On to Love • Where Shall We Go? • God So Loved • I Give to You a Future • All Are Welcome (All Belong)
