The View from Here is the third release in Signpost's Livingroom series, designed to bring some of the best Christian singer/songwriters into your home. The recordings are intimate and 'unplugged' - showcasing the artist as they might sound in your very own living room.
If you tell Bob Bennett his songs don’t sound much like Christian music, you’re likely to invoke a smile. After all, Bob has always lurked outside the fringes of contemporary Christian music, crafting songs that detail not only his joys and victories, but also his disappointments, struggles and failures.
Bob’s acoustic folk-style recordings have honestly confronted the messy side of human existence over the years. But those who have discovered his depth, wit, honesty and musicianship consider him to be one of Christian music’s foremost songwriters. His classic tunes “Matters of the Heart,” “Man of the Tombs,” “A Song About Baseball,” and others reveal a songwriting proficiency unmatched among his peers.
Bob’s ability to write songs about other than typical “spiritual” topics has always made him stand out a bit from his peers. To Bob, spiritual themes are everywhere, even in the least holy of circumstances. His approach to ministry also follows the same line of reasoning - that our lives are intricately woven with the sacred and the human, and that honest communication is ultimately most effective.
Bob Bennett cozying up on the couch and performing some of the finest material of his already distinguished career.
