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 at Carmel Catholic High School at the time and it seemed a good way to gain approval from my fellow human beings.. The groups were ... 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 rather have someone else say things about me. I always take this proverb to heart. Proverbs 27:2 Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth; an outsider, and not your own lips.

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 at Carmel Catholic 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 without stammering and play guitar and do a decent job. I found it to be a good way to hide the real me. I really thought maybe I could become a rock star and be popular, yes that was the way to happiness and fulfillment. O well things did not turn out the way I thought they should go. My parents by far were the best parents a child could have but I just wanted my own life so I 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 after high school 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 which was my goal 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 so I played the part and became a part of it. The kind of person I became was I could not get a job anymore because I was too blown out. 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 forgave 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 I received the Holy Spirit when I surrendered. One huge change I noticed was for the first time in my life I called God my Father and meant it. I also noticed 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 and is still building step by step and I know I am His possession and 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 another story.

New Song...The 4th Beast...1 cut on a new CD Closer To Home 2. Take a listen.

Thank you for all of your interest in what we are doing musically. You are all a blessing to me (Rick). May the Lord Jesus bless you and keep you in the hour of uncertainty and trial.
This verse really stuck out to me this morning Romans 15:13 New International Version
13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit... The NLB puts it this way "because you trust in him". I like that.
A new song just finished. It was meant to be the last cut on the CD called "Closer To Home" but it was just too long and would not fit on the disk so we will just continue the project on a new disk and call it "Closer To Home 2". In this situation it looks like the last song becomes the first song . The lyrics come out of the book of Daniel and Revelations. Take a listen

Just finishd a new Song......Where 2 or 3

Dear friends I . always welcolm your comments....Take a listen
Note:
Fantastic promise from what the Lord Jesus told us, written down for us to read in the gospels. Did you know that gospel means good news? It is good news that we can have answered prayer. (mmmmmmm) I just had to put it to music. The Devil and his hoard fights so hard to keep us from flowing as one. The truth (how I see it) is we are already one in spirit because of Jesus Christ, we who believe have already been transferred into the Kingdom of light which is Christ. This is what it means to be IN HIM. Our hearts have been changed and our spiritual eyes opened by being born again. As one brother put it "the lights went on" and he was going to church for most of his life. May we all who are His wake up to this wonderful truth and flow the way we were meant to flow. This includes me one of the biggest offenders. I feel like I am such easy prey to this problem of self strength.

Song from the CD "Let God Be God" Christian Raw Dog

Hello All. Thank you for just being there in these most troubling times. I got up this morning with this tune on my heart and felt I should upload it for all to hear. May you all be blessed and encouraged and strengthened by Jesus Love.....
Rock/ Acoustic Rock - This song has a beginning that introduces the theme of the song. I would say it speaks for itself. We as Christians should learn to keep in step with the Holy Spirit that abides in our Spirit. Galatians 5:25; If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. AMP: If we [claim to] live by the [Holy] Spirit, we must also walk by the Spirit [with personal integrity, godly character, and moral courage—our conduct empowered by the Holy Spirit]. CJB: Since it is through the Spirit that we have Life, let it also be through the Spirit that we order our lives day by day.....Why would the Lord tell us to abide if there was no chance that we could not abide. Let me just ask this question, are we serving the Lord or are we serving a church system??? Are we following men in our Christianity or are we really following the Lord within???

New Song: When I Am Afraid

To my Friends
During New Year's 2022 I was in the hospital with Coved Pneumonia, allot happened during my 7 day stay. I felt it was a chastening from the Lord to slow me down for some changes that were going to take place. It was like being stripped of all my activities and at the gates of death. Being in this weakened state the Lord was able to impress me with some changes He wanted me to make in my walk with Him. This is why I made mention of bringing me back from the gates of death in this song. I was working on this song on and off for about 3 years or so, just could not have peace with the lyrics that kept changing all during that time. The music kept evolving too, into something better and better every time I would work on it. . After the hospital stay I had the lyrics that gave me peace and I put them into this song. It is done.
