i’m so pleased to have met many of you on my recent travels with jars of clay, matt maher & audrey assad on the shelter tour. as i’ve said before, if you’re not paying attention to these folks, start now:
- jars of clay online, on facebook & twitter
- matt maher online, on facebook & twitter
- audrey assad online, on facebook & twitter
these are all fine artists. as i know i’ve been at times critical of “worship” music or what i more typically call “worship” product, i wanted to take this opportunity to especially recommend matt maher’s music to you. i find him to be a genuinely kind, warm and extremely intelligent person, remarkably gifted to both write and perform music that assists greatly in providing a language for god’s people to confess things that are true. in my opinion, he is both a great and trustworthy artist.
so if you find yourself seeking such music, please consider matt. of all the folks i’ve met who claim to do what he does, he strikes me as a man who’s words have both truth and power. he’s both a hero and a friend.
i sincerely hope to spend more time with all these folks. and will do my part to let you know when they have something new to say. here endeth the gushing-
