You all know I love music. I enjoy music of all kinds. My iPod is filled with just about every type of music you can imagine and some you probably wouldn’t. Thanks to my friends at Miles High Productions gave me the opportunity to review the new release from Sojourn Music called “The Water and The Blood ” I was quick to accept. While I had never heard any of Sojourn’s music before, this is actually their 7th album.
“The Water and The Blood” is a complete change of pace for me. I put the playlist on “play” and had it on in the background of my office as I worked. It wasn’t until later in the day that I realized I was hearing new songs from a new artist that just felt very comfortable. Like I had heard them several times before. The music is mellow and the lyrics bring you into a story. They usher you into a time of reflection and worship with ease. Very different from many of the worship CD’s you hear on the market today. From their press release:
The Water and The Blood: The Hymns of Isaac Watts takes you through hymns that have a distinct Roots/Americana feel to them while communicating a universal message to their audience. Musicians with backgrounds in jazz, country, pop, and punk rock came together for a common cause while seeking to serve the Church with meaningful contemporary music.
Since launching in 2000, Sojourn Music has recorded 7 albums of original music, including the critically-acclaimed album Before the Throne. Sojourn’s music is very powerful. The members of the band come from a church with three campuses in Louisville, with 2500+ people gathering on Sundays for worship.
I recommend that you swing by the Sojourn Music Website and stream the songs from their new release. You can do so (HERE). Find out more about the band (HERE). Follow them on Twitter (HERE), Facebook (HERE) and Youtube (HERE).
I give “The Water and The Blood” a 4 out of 5.
