Addison Road – Hope Now music video

I love these people!

Have a listen and tell me what you think! you can read the lyrics below.
Also check out Jenny’s blog on the right!

If everything comes down to love
Then just what am I afraid of
When I call out Your name
Something inside awakes in my soul
How quickly I forget I’m Yours

I’m not my own
I’ve been carried by You
All my life

Everything rides on hope now
Everything rides on faith somehow
When the world has broken me down
Your love sets me free

When my life is like a storm
Rising waters all I want is the shore
You say I’ll be ok and
Make it through the rain
You are my shelter from the storm

Everything rides on hope now
Everything rides on faith somehow
When the world has broken me down
Your love sets me free

Everything rides on hope now
Everything rides on faith somehow
When the world has broken me down
Your love sets me free
You’ve become my hearts desire
I will sing Your praises higher
Cause Your love sets me free
Your love sets me free
Your love sets me free

Music of the Month -November

Phil Wickham – Singalong

this is a free download from Phil Wickham. It has a great mix of his songs and classics. It’s neat to hear him do a live concert too.

starfield1starfield2starfield3 Starfield – the trio!  I love all of their albums!

My favorite album would be “I Will Go” (the last cd) The song Hosanna leads me into my next album… the songwriter herself

brooke Brooke Fraser – Albertine  Great singer, great songwriter! I was introduced to this girl by Mackenzie (thanks!!) I’m passing her on!

ringing-bellDerek Webb – Ringing Bell I really have been  listening to all of the albums i have from him, but this is my most recent. I downloaded from Noisetrade.com. I was introduced to him when he was giving away his album, Mockingbird, a few years ago. I’ve been hooked on him and Caedmon’s Call ever since.

 in-the-name-of-love1In the Name of Love – Various Artists

this cd has a variety of christian artists singing U2’s most recognized songs. I really love U2’s lyrics and the different people who sing them. My favorites are 40 and Sunday Bloody Sunday.

Music of the Month – October Edition

 I’m starting a monthly tradition. I will take my favorite albums/artists that i’ve been listening to and let you guys know. (Maybe you can tell me your favorite too!)
I will also do this with the books I’ve read that month.

Jon Foreman Fall & Winter eps (just the fall disc, i’ll save the winter for closer to the season… as in tomorrow)- Easily one of my favorite singer and songwriters. Great stuff!

JJ Heller Painted Red i have had this cd for less than a month and have listened to it over 30 times. With an ipod packed with nearly 4,000 songs I know she’s good 🙂 She reminds me of Sara Groves and the lead singer of Addison Road, Jenny Simmons.

 Alli Rogers You and The Evening Sky I actually don’t have this cd, but Noisetrade has a compilation of her songs. She’s a fantastic singer and her songs are amazing!

Joy Whitlock God and a Girl This chick has a seriously passionate voice. Kinda reminds me of mix between Jennifer Knapp and (CBD.com says and i agree) Kendall Payne with a bit of KT Tunstall.

 Downhere Ending is Beginning I love downhere’s music they have songs that I just keep coming back to and discovering all over again. I would also recommend Wide-eyed and Mystified by downhere.

 Jenny & Tyler A Prelude I’ve been really excited to find this guys through an ad on Facebook of all things. They are a Married couple from Nashville. This is an acoustic cd. I don’t have their other one but i know that it’s good!

Bethany Dillon Waking Up Honestly i’m always going to have bethany dillon playing. I’ve loved her music for a long amount of time. On this cd in particular i love You are on Our Side. Seriously amazing stuff.

Alanis Morissette Flavors of Entanglement I’ve really liked Alanis’s voice since the Chronicles of Narnia soundtrack. I don’t like straitjacket (i don’t like hearing words that i don’t say being repeated over and over) I do really like Incomplete, Tapes and Not as We.

That’s what i’ve been listening to this month. Let me know what you have!
