New podcast is up: Bridging the Gap

Thursday, June 18th, 2009

I posted my latest podcast episode titled “Bridging the Gap,” which is adapted from a message Amy offered recently. The idea centers around where people of faith are called, which is not to take sides, but rather to act as a bridge to bring sides together.

You can download it on iTunes, or you can go directly to it by clicking this link:

My new podcast, “All Or Not At All,” is now posted in two parts. Check it out.

We talk about life in tinesltown, civil rights, how his faith informed his worldview and what it’s like growing up a gay jewish kid in the Texas Bible Belt.

Hair: Jazz & Spoken Word piece on Podcast

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

I’ve recently released two CDs on CD Baby, iTunes, etc. One is my acoustic singer/songwriter stuff, and the other is a spoken word and jazz improv project, called S’aint Trio. Though you can pull samples from CD Baby, iTunes and Amazon MP3, they’re only 30 seconds long, so I thought I’d post a full track, since some folks may not be used to this kind of stuff.

The piece I selected is called “Hair,” which is a tribute to my ongoing, complex relationship by body hair. It’s definitely my more humorous stuff, so don’t expect the same goofiness on the whole album, but this seems to be the most popular piece when I perform it.

My Faith Story – (audio chapter) from “MySpace to Sacred Space”

My Faith Story (new podcast)

February 14, 2009 by christianpiatt

My wife, Amy, and I wrote a book a couple of years ago called “MySpace to Sacred Space: God for a New Generation” (Chalice Press). One of the main themes of the book is that young adults, many of whom feel alienated from organized religion, are seeking meaningful connection with one another. We believe one of the best ways to nurture this sort of connection is through sharing our stories.

In the book, Amy and I both share our own stories of our relationships with faith, religion and God, and so I created this audio chapter of my own personal journey.

Click here for my WTFWJD Author Podcast .

Like any relationship, there are good and bad times, but in all, I’d say it’s been worth it.

You can also subscribe to the podcast, where I’ll continue to add other audio chapters and interviews with some interesting folks, on iTunes, Podcast Alley, Podbean or at my personal website which you can find at www.christianpiatt.com.

Let me know what you think, and please check out the book if you dig the podcast.

My CDs and Podcast, all up now on iTunes

Friday, February 13th, 2009

If you pull up iTunes and search “Piatt,” you can find my podcast and both of my new CDs featured in the top window. Pretty groovy.

The podcast is free, of course, and the CDs…well, they’re worth it in my humble opinion.

Please check it out and share with friends, family and enemies. Gotta get the word out, yo…

Peace,

Christian

Two Piatt CDs, now on CD Baby

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

I’m happy to announce I have to CD projects finally available to the public.

The first recording is a spoken word and Jazz Improvisation project  I completed last summer with some amazing young players. The session is live, and I think there are some moments of great chemistry caught in this recording. The group is called S’aint Trio and the recording, titled “An Improvised Faith,” is named after one of the tracks:

The second is a collection of solo acoustic pieces I have written over the years, some with multi-tracks, and some just straight-up live. It’s called the “Effect-Free LP” because it’s completely absent of any digital magic, hopefully to let the true spirit of the songs shine through:

Hope you enjoy it. If you do, please share the word with other who might as well.
