Comparisons have ranged from John Mellencamp to Crowded House, but the songs of this indie artist offer so much more; namely, a window on the soul – one man’s pursuit of peace, truth and meaning – what some have called a bare-all spiritual journey punctuated with soaring vocals and surprising, vulnerable lyrics. Comforting and healing to the spirit are words used often to describe his music.
This self-titled debut features a transparent collection of tunes infused with hope and dreams. From upbeat cuts like I Love Your Name, Weapon of Praise and As For Me and My House, to rangy rock tunes like Hill Called Calvary and Faithful, this compilation will surprise and delight, whether you share a Judeo-Christian worldview or not.
