About Christian Raw Dog - Rick Roman & The Synthetic Music Machine

Bio
I (Rick) Started playing music in high school, when I look back at my attitude and life, I was not considered one of those popular kids in school and besides that I stammered and was very fearful of meeting other people, so I started a Rock Band. I was a junior in high school at the time and it seemed a good way to gain approval from my fellow human beings.. The groups were decent and I cou ... read more

Note: December 2020..... Working on a new album called "Closer To Home" The sub title being "In The Face Of Danger" I have already uploaded the first 5 songs that have been completed. They can be identified by the picture of the CD Cover. I started recording my music in 1988 and the earlier albums reflect where we were musically. I love to see the progression of sound and maturity that takes place as God Arises in our sound and message. This is why The first album I did 1988/1989 was called "Let God Arise" I was arising out of a time of musical confusion to a purpose. I felt a call to record the songs the Lord had given me. Hearing the Lord Jesus and what He spoke and now what He is speaking by His Spirit has always been a concern in our message we bring in the music. May believers and the body of Christ be built upon the right foundation which is Christ..... The Rock

I (Rick) Started playing music in high school, when I look back at my attitude and life, I was not considered one of those popular kids in school and besides that I stammered and was very fearful of meeting other people, so I started a Rock Band. I was a junior in high school at the time and it seemed a good way to gain approval from my fellow human beings.. The groups were decent and I could sing and play guitar and do a decent job of hiding behind my guitar and talent and besides I did not have to talk very much.. I really thought I was going to go somewhere. O well things did not turn out the way I thought they should go. I did not have much guidance in my life so I just followed the way of the world and the people who were around me. To make a long story short and to the point I became a mess after 5 years or so trying to run my own life and I do mean a mess. I was married at 19 and after two years I had two children to support plus a good wife. So I would play music in the evenings and work at a job during the day. Being a musician I was always associated with the wrong crowd who were into smoking weed and drugs and just living for self. The hippie movement was big and it was cool to be a part of that and being blown out as they called it. So I guess I became a wanna be and just followed along.. The kind of person I became was I could not get a job anymore because I was too blown out and I was just playing and writing music all day and getting nowhere. One day I heard that some of my music friends claimed they met God. I became very curious about this and made it my ambition to talk to one of my friends who claimed this. As I spoke to him he made allot of sense, he said we are all looking for something to fill the emptiness in our hearts. He drew a circle on his chest with his finger and said Jesus Christ can come in and fill that empty space inside with His Spirit. He also said: We always try to fill that space with everything else but God. We try to fill it with drugs, sex, music, money and fame and so forth..... I have to admit he was getting to me and I was ripe for the picking. He asked me if I had a bible? I said no but I know where I can get one. He said: when you get it, open it up to the gospel of John and read it from the beginning. He also said: Ask the lord if He is really there to show you the truth and to prove himself to you.....Well I went home that day and did what he told me to do and Jesus began to reveal Himself to me in many different and powerful ways. I came to an understanding that He was my creator and He was offering me peace and guidance. What more logical thing could I do than to believe in the one who created me. It was not to long after this I surrendered my whole life to Jesus Christ... I gave Him complete control of my life and asked Him to forgive me of all my sins. I also had to forgive everyone who I thought hurt me in my life because the Father forgive me. Any grudges or bad feelings had to be surrendered.. The Lord gave me a new heart, in other words the center of my being became new and filled with His Spirit when I surrendered. One huge change I noticed was for the first time in my life I had guidance and I felt things began to change very radically and quick for me. God was in control now and not Rick Roman. I had a friend who would never leave me or forsake me when things got weird and crazy. Now that I am older and look back at what He has done in my life and I can say it has been amazing. He has built a life for me step by step and I know I am in His plan. All of my music is an expression of my experience in Christ and the things I have gone thru with Him. There was a time I heard a call to lay my music down completely and learn to be a family man (1974) and then at the right time (1988) I felt a call to pick it up again and start recording. When I started this project, I had no idea that I was going to continue recording. I just had a desire to record something on some of the equipment my son had in a little 4 by 8 room we built in our shed. It was that Fostex X-30 Multittracker cassette recorder that caught my eye. Equipment being adequate enough to satisfy my desire, I put together some chords and " Let God Arise " was born. When I finished, I felt blessed, it touched my spirit and I wept. A freedom was born that day in me to start recording the other songs the Lord had previously given me. This was the beginning of the first CD Recording I did "Let God Arise" and I called the band "Christian Raw Dog".
Why the name Raw Dog?.............mmmmmmm that is a different story.

Christian Raw Dog - Rick Roman & The Synthetic Music Machine has no Merchandise yet.

The Remake.......I love the truth of the scriptures and how they fit into the music I do with the Lords help. Music was created by God to enjoy and His word fits perfectly into it. All forms of music comes from the Lord. Since I became a Christian I have dedicated all my talents to His disposal because He has changed me so much and is still working on me. He is the creator of all things and always makes a way when there is no way. He is the true King who will come back and bring peace to the world all others are thieves and robbers...... Let us prepare our hearts to receive Him. For in Him is LIFE and not death. Each one of us has a wonderful plan the Lord has planned for us but we must surrender to Jesus Christ our savior to find out what that plan is. If we decide to go our own way we will only find darkness and despair in the end. Listen to the remake of "Let God Arise" and believe He is the only one sent from the Father. Follow the Lyrics they are printed out for your blessing and enjoyment.

Soft Rock/Inspirational - His promise of healing:
Psalm 103:2
Praise the LORD, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
The truth will set us free.
God is not dead....Jesus has been resurrected and we are supposed to be living in newness of life.
Hebrews 13:8
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
Acts 5:19 The angel of the Lord opened the doors of the jail and brought them out and told them “Go, stand in the temple courts, and tell the people all about this new life.” How many of us are really living in that??? I can point the finger at myself here for these are the things I believe I am growing in. To praise Him in all things and not for all things is a key in my life. From the heart a man believes. What is faith? Hebrews 11
New International Version
11 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for. Is Jesus saying get out of the boat and walk on the water of circumstances with me. Yes I believe He tells me that but I seem to fail most of the time and compromise the integrity of my walk with Him. I somehow get corrupted when I dwell on the circumstance. He keeps saying "let us go to the other side".

Hi to all my friends where ever you are on this 1st day of January 2021. Just finished a remix of Psalm 149, added it here so you can take a listen.....brought down the bass because I thought the bass was too overpowering over the music. I also added music to the talking about creation at the end. I like the way it turned out. It touches my spirit and emotions. Just wanted to share it.

My hope is that all of you are filled with hope and confidence and Joy that comes from Knowing Jesus. Myself I don't know what I would do if I did not know Him. My help comes from Him and He says that the only way to have the Father is thru Him. To know Jesus is to know the Father. This song goes along with what is happening in our country.....The Lord is faithful. Take a listen if you dare and follow along with the lyrics. I don't sell my music, you can just download all my songs for free. Thank you for being interested in what we are doing. May the Lord Jesus Christ the Lord of all the earth bless you always as you look toward Him.

Hello just wanted to tell you all about a new piece I just uploaded. Something we did on our second album......Let God Be God. We did a scripture reading of Revelations 12. This chapter always speaks volumes to me and tells us of the plan and purposes of God for the Church , the Body of Christ, the Israel of God in these last days. These 3 names mean the same for this company of people, in other words they are one in the same. There is much to say about the typology of this chapter. For the percussion we used a bunch of bicycle parts and some other stuff, we were definitely experimenting with our new found freedom in Music. This was in 1991
