Day 7 – tell it to the masses

29 Aug

I am a lover of music. There is something about the way the right combination of lyric, sound and rhythm cuts straight to my soul. I’m not talking about commercialized ‘pop’, but rather the kind of music that has been organically created with meaning, honesty and talent. I’m always amazed by the beauty of the true musicians’ song.

Today has been one of my more non-productive days in awhile. And by that I mean I spent a good portion of the afternoon in front of the television. I rarely do that, but today was just one of those days. I started the day strong by creating my own little church service at home by playing worship music and singing along at the top of my lungs, listening to a podcast of a sermon by Mark Driscoll and having a little devo time, which I followed up by cleaning the house and working out. But then I just lost all momentum to do anything stimulating and plopped myself on the couch in front of the tv. I did manage to leave the house though – to go grab a coffee from Starbucks.

However, I began to get a little restless so I got my laptop out to ‘multi-task’ while I was watching tv. In my aimless online browsing, I came across a new worship music duo called Sons and Daughters. I’ve never heard of them before, but I am familiar with one half of the duo – David Leonard – he’s the former lead singer of a band called Jackson Waters and has played keys for one of my favourite bands, Needtobreathe. Anways, they released their first song called ‘All the Poor & Powerless’ just over a month ago and are offering it to everyone as a free download. The first time I listened to it I was completely taken by its simple, slow burning beauty and the message of telling it to the masses – “it” being the message of Christ.

For the free download, click on the link below. I highly recommend that you check it out :)

    I totally remember listening to All Saints and Lauryn Hill in your yellow jeep when you drove jess and I around and I always thought you had the best taste in music! Loving your blog, Jamie!

      oh my word, I totally remember those days! hahaha… so funny! Lauryn Hill is still legit, but I’m happy to say that my music taste has shifted somewhat from my All Saints days :) Thanks for the message Vanessa and for reading my blog, so great to hear from you!
