In Word and Work: An Intersection, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, President Emeritus Dr. Dale A. Meyer talks with Heather Choate Davis, an L.A.-based author who released her first album of songs in 2020 called the “Life in the Key of God.” Davis — who didn’t play music for 58 years — learned piano, composition, music theory, choral training and notation software over a year’s time and wrote the music and lyrics for the 10 songs on the album, which were performed by others. “I’ve always been a writer. … but never music. I didn’t play instruments, I didn’t sing in a choir, I couldn’t read music. I didn’t know anything and all of a sudden I started hearing songs,” Davis says. “It’s been a really remarkable journey.” The album is available from most streaming services.
