A lot of new music has come out lately that I am loving listening to. Some of it has only been out for literally a few days but it is just so amazing I have already listened to it so many times due to being on repeat. Also, a lot of this music was created by friends or friends of my wife so that just makes it even more special. If you like what you hear you should download them and share it with your friends.
Seven by Jeremiah Williams (free)
This album is free so why wouldn’t you get it?! I went to college with Jeremiah and he is a great guy and very musically talented. He wrote this music in partnership with a devotional on the season of lent and each song gives focus on the seven different statements of Jesus while he was on the cross. Great music!
Page CXVI has been a favorite band of mine ever since I met my wife. She grew up knowing some of the members and when she introduced me to them I immediately fell in love. Page CXVI is a band whose purpose is making hymns “accessible and known again”. Their versions of hymns have quickly become some of my favorites. This album, like the one listed above, includes songs focusing on the Lent season. You can download it from their website or on iTunes.
The Blessed Unrest by Sara Bareilles
Now I don’t know Sara Bareilles and I don’t know anyone who knows her. But, according to the six degrees of separation theory I can only be six people away from her, right? Anyways, this album was nominated for Album of the Year at the Grammys. If you don’t already know, it lost, but it is a great album. I have been listening to it a ton since I got it. Sara was recently on Jimmy Fallon and she sang her song “I Choose You” with the help of The Roots and it just once again reminded me that this is an amazing album. Get it on iTunes.
