Top producer Michael Omartian talks about new independent album.

RECORD producer and recording artist Michael Omartian spoke recently about his marriage to Stormie, whose books about prayer have become best sellers in the USA. He told CCM magazine, "Stormie has been a person of prayer since the day I met her and her example is incredible for me."

Michael also spoke about his latest musical projects, tracks for a Cliff Richard Christmas album, new artist Joshua Payne (Verve Universal) and a recording of his own. He said, "I'm probably most excited about an instrumental record I just finished for myself called 'Animator'. It includes four songs that I produced previously that were number one hits and I brought back the original artists to re-record them - Vince Gill, Christopher Cross, Peter Cetera. And the rest is just instrumental. I'll be putting out the record myself through a website currently under development (most likely and we'll see how it goes." CR
