the exception of good music - "farther along"

It’s not often a song stops you in your tracks. You see, music is everywhere, not just in the elevator (thank goodness!). But such a presence dilutes the quality of music we hear. Quantity does not equal quality! But there are exceptions.

To me good music connects with the listeners experience not just through the lyrics, but the music. Like all good art, a song shouldn’t just tell the truth, but represent the truth - rhythm, vocals, lyrics, and overall band dynamics combine to communicate reality as we know it. And in the case of Josh Garrells“Farther Along.” a little bit of hope along the way is always welcome.

Garrells’ soulful voice, tasteful blend of musical styles, and creative ability to communicate hope in the midst of earth’s chaos is inspiring. “Farther Along” does just that.

Farther along we'll know all about it
Farther along we'll understand why
So, cheer up my brothers, live in the sunshine
We'll understand this, all by and by

Tempted and tried, I wondered why
The good man died, the bad man thrives
And Jesus cries because he loves 'em both...

I found Josh Garrells via Noisetrade. Check it out, it’s great!

"Flood Waters" is another great hopeful song:
