Ishmael returns with new album after battle with leukemia

AFTER A major battle with health issues, veteran children's communicator Ishmael returns with a new album in January. 'Bigger Barn' is issued by Kingsway Music on 18th January. Said Ishmael, "Without doubt, this has been the most challenging album I have ever made for a couple of reasons. The first is that after writing six of eh songs I was diagnosed with leukemia that meant it was over a year later before I was well enough to write the final six songs. The other challenge was trying to fit a story of Jesus accurately into a few lines and still have an application. . . and a bit of fun! I love these 'Jesus story songs' and I hope you do too. For those a little older (my age!) if you listen carefully you may recognise some 'inklings' of my favourite songs from way back!" CR
