One of the things that we love about this album is the variety of musical styling. The opening song is this big rock tune called "Let There Be Light" that is sure to get the blood pumpin! With a great message about God's light breaking through the darkness of our lives.
The 2nd song is sure to be a favorite with a very chill feel good vibe. This song asks the question..."will you find me Where I Am"? It takes you on a 3min journey through the pain, struggle, and confusion of life. Asking the question we all need answered. Is there hope right where I am? The song concludes with an answer that is consistent with the truth and the musical feel of the song. Leaving you with a smile on your face and a bounce in your step!
The 3rd song Is entitled Lay It Down. This song came from the song writer's own journey of faith. God has invited each of us to come and follow Him. For far too long we have misinterpreted what that means. This song takes an honest look at that and really is a challenge to the church in this age to discover the remarkable impact of surrender to the living God! The discovery that living can only be found in dying (to one's self)! And that by laying it all down, we find peace in the midst of the struggle, joy in spite of trial, strength when we are weak, and life instead of death! What a deal!
Song number 4 comes in with a refreshing look at the freedom that comes as we take the advice of the previous song. The truth is that Jesus sets us free! This song is unique, upbeat, fun, and encouraging! Right out of the gate you can't help but sing along with the whoa's. And then the song continually is building to the choruses that resound the truth You Set Me Free!!
Number 5 is a very different song for us. It has this light acoustic feel to it, that is very consistent with the content of the song as well. The song is simply entitled Celebrate. It's and invitation to do just that! There are no deep meanings in this song...the music is simple, the message is simple, and we love it for those very reasons! The church needs to stop being so down in the mouth! Wake up, and celebrate all that Christ has done for you! And for Pete's sake, smile, bob your head, and clap your hands while you listen to this song! :)
The 6th song is this real intimate moment on the album. It's the only song that our female vocalist takes the lead. And she does a beautiful job of drawing you into the Savior's love, healing, and forgiveness! So close your eyes, and let the arms of God hold you, heal you, as only He can. Wherever you find yourself today.
Song number 7. This song is a very familiar song that we decided to cover. We had played this song many times in concert through the years in a similar style to the original version. We were about to retire it when we played this acoustic show at a coffee shop near us. Somehow this song that has been done and redone time and time again took on this folk flare that was very different from anything that we had ever heard before. The audience ate it up! And every audience after....so we decided to cover it on this project! I hope you enjoy our very different version of the song I Am Free!
Number 8 is a very important song for us. We have from day one, and will always make worship a priority at our shows. Therefore it was also a priority on this album. The have a moment that wherever you are, in your car, out for a run, or just chillin at home, you can lift your heart up to the living God and sing his praise! He is Holy! God Almighty! He's the only one worthy and there's no one like Him! He's the Great I Am!
The 9th song gives the album a big lift toward the end! It's another big rock tune that by the end of it will have you pounding your steering wheel, or embarrassing yourself in public as you play air guitar! While all this is going on you are being challenged to lift up the name of Jesus in the face of a world and culture that this is not popular in. So get your rock on and be inspired to not be ashamed of the Gospel, or His name!
If you have read this far...you are a real trooper! We hope that this has been an encouragement to you! And that you'll be able to take our music with you and be reminded of all that God is doing and wants to do in your life! Lay it down, be set free, and let God find you right where you are!
