Raw, Real, Transparent, Rough Around the Edges, Genuine, Sincere, Humble, Without Masks; and a true Ragamuffin, Like Me, who God Loves as He is and Not as He should be. Karl Penn will be the first to tell you He is a wretch that was captured by the Power of God's Grace and it Radically Transformed both He and his family nearly four years ago. I was instantly drawn to the candid openness of his brokenness, as I identify with and respected that; and the beauty of the Grace that changed his heart forever. Its the stuff I look for; Hearts that were wrecked and leveled by God, like mine. And Karl has it.
The Buzz about Karl started in the The Kingdom Songs Tribe a little over a year ago, and the adjectives I used to describe him above were circulating about this young Worship Leader who by chance met Dustin Smith at a Worship Gathering and within months of that meeting was writing with nearly every PRO in the "Worship" Community. I had to meet this guy and see what the hype was about. It was even rumored that Karl was a "MMA" fighter and had Killed over 10 people in the ring (that's a joke! Although he does Train MMA and took Benji Cowart to the mat within an millisecond.) In meeting Karl, everything stated was true. With him you get what you get; a Raw, completely humble talent who God got a hold of and has His Loving hands all over. I have never seen a person who exemplifies the term "The Favor of God" in such a way. It's crystal clear, God has a plan for this beautifully broken vessel who I am humbled to know and now call a true brother and friend.
So why am I writing about Karl? Several years ago, God literally grabbed Karl and set him on His path for His purpose; and he is following it. After nearly two years of cowrites, leading worship, and listening to the Holy Spirit, Karl is following God's leading and begun the process of cutting his first Solo Worship project and is in need of Kingdom Support!

Aaron Rice (Grammy nominated songwriter/producer) will be producing Karl's EP when funded, which is an amazing blessing and honor, as he's written for TobyMac (Made to Love) and Mandisa (Good Morning) just to name a few folks. That said, Karl will have one of the best names in Nashville behind his first EP, so the quality of what comes out will Honor God in every way.

I believe it is no coincidence Karl met Dustin Smith by chance, nor was his meteoric rise to cowriting with the best of the best Worship Writers in the Industry. God has a plan for this Raw, young Ragamuffin and He will be faithful to complete the work He began in him. I URGE YOU TO HELP SUPPORT THIS ANOINTED YOUNG WORSHIP LEADER GET HIS DEBUT EP OFF THE GROUND. Click the Indiegogo logo above and know that you are sewing into very good ground.
