Archives For Lincoln Brewster

Ok so the moment we have all been waiting for is here. It is time for the ultimate link love recovery contest.

Why:

Simple. I moved my site from CECWorship recently and noticed that because it was on wordpress.com it came with a share of problems trying to move RSS over. Most of my readers were not using the feedburner feed and I could not transfer them over so I went from 125 readers to 10. Not much community like that. Then on top of all that my technorati rating went down to 0 (yes I am a stat ho and proud of it). So I want to get the community back to where it was quick because I have some great stuff I will be writing about soon.

Rules:

This will be an # entry based contest all plugged into random.org. so that means You get your name in hat once or twice depending on what you do. This is a bloggers contest.

There are 3 tiers if you will.

  • 1 entry if: you change your link on your blogroll, already have changed it, or add my to your blogroll (of course I will add you to mine if it isn’t already.
  • 2 entries if:  you do the above plus subscribe to my new feed
  • Big daddy!: If you do all the above and also do a small (or long) post announcing my sites move and that you like me (ha ha) you automatically get put into a different contest for grand prize only.

So once you have done any of these or already have before contest started post in the comments on this post what tier: 1, 2, big daddy you have accomplished and a link to your site. MAKE SURE YOUR LINK IS ATTACHED TO AN EMAIL SO I CAN CONTACT YOU FOR YOUR ADDRESS.

Today is the day: BUY IT!

Go buy it…NOW!

I have been listening to Lincoln Brewster since his first CD and have always enjoyed his music. I have however noticed something. His music and showcase of talent is much better when heard live. This was evident when his Live CD “All to You” came out. If you listen to that CD compared to his other stuff it is much more raw. What I mean by that is the studio CD’s always felt overproduced to me. The production made the sound from song to song stay the same.

I use a few of Lincoln’s song in my church services and love his writing, but when Integrity sent me this new CD “Today is the Day” I was a little worried it was going to showcase overproduction instead of Brewster’s amazing ability.

I put the CD in with intrepidation and as it started to play I thanked God. Finally!, They got it right. The production on this CD is good. It still has that feel like His other CD’s but this time it is not distracting.

The First song is the title cut “Today is the Day”. I was sucked in imediately. What a great song and an obvious choice for worship leaders to jump on right off the bat.

I moved on to the next track “Everywhere I Go”. Of course loved this one as well. Actually I liked it even more than the title track.

I went from track to track getting really into the new CD, enjoying the consistancy, but wanting something more. I wanted to hear Lincoln do something different. Show me his guitar technique. Then the back half of the CD started playing.

WOW! That was not expected. Folks this is what I have been waiting for. Lincoln goes into a handful of songs with a bluesy flare, a jazz sound, and some amazing awe inspiring guitar work.

The back half can be compared to the most current sound that John Mayer is putting out and Some of the great work from Phil Keaggy.

Let me tell you while I was hesitant I was greatly pleased.

If you are a fan of Lincoln then you will hear more of what he does best.

If you are not a fan of Lincoln this could very well be the CD that changes that for you.

Today Is The Day releases on 9.23.08 and is currently available for pre-order.

I would suggest you order it. It is more than worth it.
