Last weekend, December 10, 2011 wrapped up our final “Glory & Peace” Concert of the Christmas season with full band and Tina Newlove (painter) in beautiful Victoria, B.C. It was a fantastic evening!
Ron Michalski, Luke Stones, Marita Salokari and their team did a wonderful job hosting us all at Glad Tidings Church. It sure was great to be back on “home soil” with many of my family and friends at this concert. Dale Clyne did a great job on sound in one of the nicest venues in Canada. I’ll let these photos taken by Michelle Dick tell the rest of the story …

Final bows …
“O my soul, bless God! God, my God, how great you are! Beautifully, gloriously robed, dressed up in sunshine, and all heaven stretched out for your tent” … “what a wildly wonderful world God! You made it all, with wisdom at your side, made earth overflow with your wonderful creations ….” “The GLORY of God – let it last forever!” Let God enjoy His creation!” (Psalm 104:1-3, 24, 31 -Message)
Jesus said, “I give you PEACE, the kind of PEACE that only I can give. It isn’t like the PEACE that this world can give. So don’t be worried or afraid.” (John 14:27 – Message)
At once the angel was joined by a huge angelic choir singing God’s praises: “GLORY to God in the heavenly heights, PEACE to all men and women on earth who please him.” (Luke 2:13-14 – Message)
It was truly an honour last month to hear that YAHWEH was nominated for 5 Canadian GMA Covenant Awards in the following categories:
1. CD/DVD Artwork Design of the Year
2. Jazz/Blues Song of the Year (The Path)
3. Instrumental Song of the Year (Passion)
4. Instrumental Album of the Year
5. Classical – Traditional Song of the Year (Interlude: The Calling)
Well … while wrapping up the 8-Day Robin Mark Tour, we learned the good news last Friday evening that YAHWEH took home two of these awards:
Instrumental Album of the Year
Instrumental Song of the Year – “Passion”
Unfortunately, I was not able to attend the awards ceremony in person, but Elizabeth and Kip Sharpe attended in my place as representatives of the Flyingbow Board of Directors. Here are the speeches they read in Calgary:
Instrumental Song of the Year – “Passion” :: Kip Sharpe, Director of Ministry Partnerships with Flyingbow made this speech:
Trevor Dick could not represent Flyingbow Music Ministry tonight because he is on the 7th night of an 8-day tour with Robin Mark in Ontario. My name is Kip Sharpe and I am the Director of Ministry Partnerships with Flyingbow of which Trevor is an artist. Flyingbow Music Ministry is a not for profit organization that missions the gospel to Canada and around the world though its music missionaries of which Trevor is one. This year we were awarded charitable status which sets us up to do more mission work through partnerships with other artists who desire to become part of Flyingbow. Passion was written as a heart cry of the things in life that drive us – those things that God has given us a uncontainable passion for – that we keep this burning flame alive and stay true to His will and desire for us in our art. Flyingbow Music Ministry, Trevor Dick and the Creative Team would like to thank the Gospel Music Association for the honour of this award.
Instrumental Album of the Year :: Elizabeth Sharpe, chair of the Flyingbow Board made this speech:
Trevor would like to recognize the great team that made this album possible: The 5th String Blvd. Band members: Steve Heathcote (drums and percussion), Will Jarvis (bass), Brad Toews (keyboards) and Corey Lacey (guitar); The Creative Team: Richard Cleaver (Recording Engineer), Phase One Recording Studios, Tina Newlove (Artist), Joe Stevens (Graphic Design) and the Flyingbow Ministry Board of Directors for their wisdom and support. The creative process of producing this album was truly amazing. We give all the praise and Glory to Yahweh, the eternal, indescribable God and master Artist who spun this universe into motion and gave us these gifts to give back to Him.
You can see the complete list of winners of the Canadian GMA Covenant Awards here. It is a real blessing to be recognized by the Gospel Music Association in this way.
Until next time, ><> Trevor

It is that time once more to give you an update on Flyingbow Music Ministry. As I write, we are gearing up for the 2009 “Glory and Peace” Christmas Tour which will stay closer to home this time around in beautiful Ontario. We will be playing in the following city centers: Guelph, London, Port Perry, Burlington, Belleville, Parry Sound, Sudbury, Ottawa and Kitchener. We have great memories of our tour last year to New Brunswick and P.E.I. We hope to take it to western Canada perhaps in 2010.
Here are a few important bullet updates on Flyingbow:
PARTNERSHIP WITH COMPASSION …
• I joined fellow Compassion Music Artist, Geoff Moore at my home church of Lakeside in Guelph last weekend (Nov. 15/09) for an exciting Compassion Sunday Event. It was an awesome day. You can view the video footage of the full service below. Over 180 children were sponsored at this special event – a great morning!
I want to thank all of you who have made the sacrifices this year to sponsor a child through Compassion Canada. You are making an incredible difference in your “adopted” child’s life not only now, but for eternity. Remember to take the time to write letters to your child. They are treasured. As a Compassion Artist, Compassion is a big part of what I do in this Music Missionary Ministry. To sponsor a child today, link to: http://www.compassion.ca
NEW CD UPDATE …
• As many of you know, this Fall the Band and I entered Phase One Recording Studio A, one of Canada’s finest recording facilities, for a week of tracking the next Flyingbow CD Project entitled “Yahweh”, engineered by Richard Cleaver. Hundreds of hours have been spent thus far on recording, mixing and editing. A mastering date has been set for Dec. 11 (also at Phase One – Studio C ) with George Seara whose recent clients include Rihanna, Mos Def, Holly Cole, 50 Cent, Sting, Herbie Hancock and Finger Eleven. We have certainly raised the bar on the quality of this album. Again, I am blessed to work with some of the finest musicians in the country: Steve Heathcote (Drums and Percussion), Will Jarvis (acoustic and electric Bass), Corey Lacey (acoustic and electric Guitar) and Brad Toews (Piano and Keyboards).
• We are very excited about the imminent release of the “Yahweh” CD Project – it is coming together very nicely but has taken a little longer to complete than first anticipated … as someone said, “you just can’t rush a good thing” … So, we are anticipate a CD release date of the first week of January with coinciding “Yahweh” Concert Tour Dates through 2010.
* For a rare preview of the fresh “Yahweh” arrangements, we encourage you to attend the “Yahweh” CD preview Concert this coming Friday, Nov. 27/09 at Lakeside Church in support of International Missions. Details on the Flyingbow Event Calendar.
2009 GLORY AND PEACE TOUR …
• Also listed on the Event Calendar are the 2009 Glory and Peace Ontario Tour dates in the following cities/venues this year:
• We are pleased to announce that Hannah Briggs (Ballet & Modern Dancer) and Tina Newlove ( Artist and Live Performance Painter) will be special guests at a number of these concert productions. They will add another level of artistic beauty. I am also thrilled to partner with Compassion Canada for many of these events.
RADIO PLAY …
• LISTEN TO TREVOR AND THE BAND ON CBC RADIO this Christmas. CBC Radio has placed the “Glory and Peace” album in all their libraries across Canada and have played a cut or two but rely on listeners like you to request your favorite artists.

I am very pleased and excited to announce that award winning artist and painter, Tina Newlove, has been commissioned to do the artwork for the new “Yahweh” CD Project. I really appreciate her art (the humanity and the Divine in it).
I met with Tina yesterday to give her a CD (a rough music mix) and discuss the concept of the project and ideas for the commissioned painting. While listening to the music, she will paint with acrylic and oil to depict “Yahweh” using the following working definition:
“to be, to become … the Eternal, self-existent “I AM” who brings all things into being. Master, sovereign Ruler, and covenant-keeping Mighty God, the One that was, that is, that is to come”.
Many of you will remember Tina from the Glory and Peace Tour where she portrayed each concert through her amazing live performance painting. It is such an honour to partner with her on this new project. This is a creative departure from the typical CD artwork and will make this new project a real “art-piece” beyond the music.
