Sojourn Music: CD Review

March 17, 2008 — 2 Comments

It has been a long time coming. I have had this CD running for a few weeks now and every time I listen to it it blows me away.

The CD is called, Before the Throne, by Sojourn Music. So who are these guys. on their site it says

“New songs for worship, rich in Christian theology. Contemporary hymns, psalms, songs of lament and praise written by members of the Louisville, KY-based Sojourn Community.”

In a world of Hillsong United wannabes I have another description for this CD. Refreshing.

I didn’t know what to expect from this when they sent it to me. Every song is diverse, theologically sound and full of richness that I haven’t seen in a long time.

The style on the CD can only best be described as…Jazz, folk, rock, blues, soul, worship. Thats not even a joke. It is chock full of great songs for worship and they are surprisingly singable.

The music sometimes sounds like Nora Jones, then Vigilantes of Love, Tracy Chapman, Jennifer knapp, Caedmans Call, and throw in a little classic Christian Stonehill.

The songwriting on this is unparalleled and it doesn’t rely on raucous guitars to real you in.

The smooth and gripping sound from this CD will really pull you into a mindset of worship. This group is one amazing group and I can’t wait to hear the other CD’s they have to offer.

Go check them out and buy this one now.

5 out of 5 stars

PS…thanks bobby for sending me this brilliant work of art.

5. Charlie Hall and Micah 6:8 it’s amazing because with everything I have been reading this verse and song really ring true for our generation of Christians who need to walk in real truth.

Micah 6:8-Hall

Verse
You could feed the whole world with the crumbs of old bread
Spread the good news through dreams and stones
With a breath of the wind You could raise up the dead
But You ask us to go

chorus
Help us love mercy, help us do justly,
Help us walk humbly with You God

Verse 2
Forget not the widow, the orphan, and slave
O God please remember the helpless today
Call on Your children repairing the breach
There is no place too far that Your mercy can’t reach

Outro
For the children who sleep beneath cities at dark
let love go and touch them with your Father’s heart
