NeumaVox, Bridges's worship band, released its first CD, The Music of Bridges, on Sunday, November 2, 2008, at the Bridges worship gathering. The CD features 12 songs regularly included in Bridges worship gatherings. Band members include Bridges' Music Director Doug Shea (vocals, electric guitars, orchestrations) Monica Shea (vocals, grand piano, keyboard, strings), Paul Rowlett (acoustic guitar), Mike Jakubiak (bass), and Andy "The Drummer" Blochowiak (drums).
The CD was produced to provide a tool for the people of Bridges to introduce friends, family,neighbors, and co-workers to the music of Bridges. The worship music on the CD also provides a great way to praise God throughout the week. Track five, Hand You My Shame, is an original song written by Monica Shea. The song, written as a prayer, expresses to God the loving Father the burden of sin and regrets and the hope, joy, and release of forgiveness and healing in Jesus Christ. It's a powerful and moving song that has become an important part of the worship experience at Bridges.
