Hello and thanks for visiting!
"Life is changes,
Don't let it
pass you by" -
'Life is Changes (Song to Andrew)'
Currently being played on Community Radio Stations!
My first blog entry is here:
It's called, 'Going Back Home'
"It's like James Taylor, if James Taylor rocked" Jim Ryser - Speed of Light
"Acoustically driven - honest and gritty at the base. Every song has a stroke of understated genius".
On 'Life is Changes', Dale's vocal delivery is breathlessly eloquent, the lyrics poignantly and passionately sung. In a word-sublime!" Jamsphere Magazine.
"Dale does not simply sing his songs – he interprets them in every facet. This is storytelling the way only the best breed of singer-songwriters are capable of doing".
"Sechrest fleshes out themes that are occupied with the primary and essential things in life. He doesn’t broadly look at the jigsaw puzzle, instead he picks out little pieces and scrutinizes how and why each piece does or doesn’t fit the big picture. Michael Clark’s elegant production allows these songs to breathe freely, and Dale’s voice to deservedly stand out front and center. Close-up and personal, “The Journey” is a truly fulfilling listening experience." Rick Jamm

Song updates: The good people at Rumblefish have used two of my songs, 'Higher Ground (Song for Jason)' 'New Orleans' in their ads! Doesn't make much money, but I think it's pretty cool that they liked them well enough to use.
My song, 'With All My Heart' is currently being used by a Non-Profit Organization, 'Art of Invitation', as their 'Theme Song'.
'With All My Heart' is being used in numerous churches of various denominations in their Sunday morning services.
I praise God for that and for all He continues to do.
