Greater Vision - As We Speak


Click Above To Hear A Sample

Artist: Greater Vision
Project Title: As We Speak
Label: Daywind
Producers: Unknown

When this office sees a new Greater Vision project come in the mail, things come to a standstill until we listen to it!  Greater Vision has long been a favorite of mine since they first formed.  They are one of the most consistent groups in the industry and I have always enjoyed their sound.  Their latest project had ten songs on it that are true to the Greater Vision sound and yet are still very fresh, new, anointed and exciting. 

The project begins with a catchy song titled "Put Out The Fire."  I am sure it surprises no one that Rodney Griffin wrote the song.  I love the message of this song that God was the perfect Lamb so we can put out the fire on any other offering that was ever made!  "We Can't Tell It All" is next up on this project and this Phil Cross song talks about how there is no way that we can ever tell everything about God or God's Love.  The tempo picks up as Greater Vision gets down to some good old fashioned Southern Gospel Music with "Toes In The Water."  The message of the song is encouraging the believers to be wading deep in the water for Christ and not just dangling our toes in the water.

Greater Vision is fortunate to have two exceptional writers in their group and Chris Allman wrote the next song titled "He Does." It is a beautiful ballad reminding us that no matter how unworthy we feel, God can forgive us and He understands us no matter how bad we have been.  "In The Sandals Of Daniel" is a unique song titled and I admit it had me quite curious.  The song asks a great question as to if we could stand in the sandals of Daniel if we were put to the same tests that he was.  The next song was written by Lari Goss, Candy Hemphill Christmas and Joel Hemphill.  The title of the song is "Let The Blood Of Calvary Speak For Me" and it is an amazing song.  I cannot recall ever hearing the song before but it is sure to become a favorite of mine.  "Never Will I Ever Again" is one of those tongue twister songs and it is a tremendous song about how there will never be another God and it will likely become a listener favorite.

Artist: Karen Peck and New River
Project Title: Pray Now
Label: Daywind
Producers: Unknown

Karen Pack and New River have been producing quality music for several years.  Their latest effort is simply another project of high quality music that is sure to make all of their fans very happy!

The project begins with a lively song titled "Calling."  The message is a good one about Jesus calling the sinner to be saved!  I love the song and really enjoy the performance from Karen Peck and New River on this one. The title song of the project is next. "Pray Now" is a fantastic song that reminds us to pray no matter what is going on in your life because there is strength in His Name.  "Hallelujah For The Cross" is the next song and this upbeat song is a celebration of the Cross of Christ and the souls that have been saved by it. The next song on the project is titled "Love With All Your Heart."  The song has a wonderful message of sharing the love in our heart with others.

"I Am Blessed" is next up on the project and this song serves to remind us that we are blessed no matter what or where God is leading us.  It is a great message and a beautifully crafted song.  The tempo picks up with the upbeat "I'm Not Letting Go." It proclaims that no matter what comes our way we will not let go and we will continue to hold on to Jesus! "I Choose Christ" is a song that proclaims that we will choose Christ even when things around us say to give up.  It is a great message in the song.

Crabb Family - 20 Years


Click Above To Hear A Sample

Artist: Crabb Family
Project Title: 20 Platinum Edition
Label: Daywind
Producers: Philip Morris and Jason Crabb

If you take one of the most popular groups of recent history in Southern Gospel Music, mix in 20 of their top songs and put them all on a single project, well, you have yourself a very good project! The group is the Crabb Family and these 20 songs are some of the most popular songs to come out in Southern Gospel Music over the past 20 years or so.  

The project begins with "Still Holdin' On." What a great reminder that we need to keep holding on to Jesus and this proclaims that we are still holding on to Him! One of the Crabb Family classics is next as they sing "Please Forgive Me." I have never been able to hardly believe the feeling and conviction that the Crabb Family sings this song with. What a great prayer set to music and it is one that Christ will answer every single time! One of the early hit songs from the Crabb Family was "Trail Of Tears." I always loved that song and it had been a while since I heard it! "I Sure Miss You" is one of those songs that will touch you time and time again if you have lost a loved one. This song came out right around the time that my dad passed away and continued to comfort as my mom passed away several years later. I still love the song and loved hearing it again on this collection. When I think of the Crabb Family's big songs I always think of "The Lamb, The Lion and The King." A great, upbeat song with a wonderful message!

Probably the best known Crabb Family song is "Through The Fire."  It is one of those songs that becomes an instant classic and there are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of people who have been touched by that song. I love the song and it has encouraged me many times. "Don't You Wanna Go" is another of those fast paced songs that the Crabb Family could always burn up a stage with! The beauty of it is that these songs were also lyrically strong. Next on the project is "I've Come To Take You Home." It is a beautiful song with another incredible message, The Crabb Family has always been known for their songs of encouragement and one of the best I ever heard is "That's No Mountain."  That song is next and leads us to another song of encouragement with "The Reason That I'm Standing."

Jim Brady Trio - A New Chapter


Click Above To Hear A Sample

Artist: Jim Brady Trio
Project Title: A New Chapter
Label: Daywind
Producers: Jim Brady and Tim Parton

One of the most celebrated groups to come along in Southern Gospel Music in the past several years is the Jim Brady Trio.  After spending several years with the Booth Brothers, Jim Brady, along with his wife Melissa and Tim Parton stepped out as the Jim Brady Trio to a great deal of fan fair.  The group has not disappointed in anyway and their debut project, titled "A New Chapter" is a great collection of music that is sure to set this group on an incredibly successful journey.

The project starts out with an appropriately titled song.  "God Of What's To Come" is a great testament for this group and for all of us as Christians as we step out into new chapters of our own lives.  The tempo picks up with "You Can Depend On Jesus" and this song is a great reminder of Christ's faithfulness to His Children.  We can depend on Jesus and we should never forget that.  Next on the project is "The Greatest Of All Miracles" and I love this song! It reminds us that of all of the great miracles that Jesus Christ performed, the greatest one of all is that He saved me!  "Steppin' Out In Faith" is a song about the faith we should have in God.  Yes, with all of the examples in the Bible of faith it should be easy for us to step out in faith and do what God has commanded us to do. 

Jim and Melissa Brady has a hand in writing many of the songs on this project.  "On My Way Home" is one of those songs and I love it! It reminds us that we are just passing through this earth below and we are on our way Home! Next on the project the Jim Brady Trio kicks it up a notch with "Good Lord Willing."  I love the song and it talks about telling everybody about the Love of Christ every day of our lives! One of my very favorite hymns is "The Love Of God" so imagine my absolute delight to discover the song on this project!  I love this arrangement of the song and the performance is nothing short of perfect! "When He Saved Me" is the next song on the project and what a powerful message in this song.

Jason Runnels - The Answer


Click Above To Hear A Sample

Artist: Jason Runnels
Project Title: The Answer
Label: Independent
Producers: Jason Runnels and Mike Welch

Jason Runnels is a name known in Southern Gospel Music as a former member of Tony Gore and Majesty and the Down East Boys.  These days, Jason is traveling as a soloist and has recorded three projects.  The latest project is titled "The Answer" and it is a collection of ten songs that you will enjoy.

The project begins with a familiar song and one my all time favorite songs.  The song is "Sail On" and I have loved this song since I first heard the Imperials sing it.  Jason does a good job singing the song and I always love to hear that great old song again.  The next song is a beautiful ballad titled "When God Unfolds The Rose." The message of the song is as beautiful as the melody is as it reminds us in a very unique way that God is always in control of every situation and God will do everything in His time.  Another old song is next as Jason sings "If We Never Meet Again."  I have always enjoyed that song and the message of it.

"Daystar" is one of those songs that nearly every Gospel Music artist has recorded at one time or another.  Jason's version is a good one and, of course, this song is one of the great prayers set to music.  "Smile On Your Face" is a song that I remember the Down East Boys singing.  I always enjoyed the message of the song that we as Christians wear a smile on our face that is usually quite easily detectible for another Christian!  "Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)" is, of course, a popular song from Christian Contemporary Music and Chris Tomlin.  The message is a good one as it reminds us that Jesus did take away the chains of sins in our lives.  Jason sings a lively version of one of the great church hymns next as he tackles "Just A Closer Walk."  A great performance on a great song.

Wanda Osborne - Keep On Walking


Click Above To Hear A Sample

Artist: Wanda Osborne
Project Title: Keep On Walking
Label: CrossLine Records
Producers: Phil Cross

A little over a month ago I was emceeing a revival and I met a woman and her husband that were just incredibly nice people.  The woman was singing and preaching at the event and the friendship was instant.  Wanda Osborne was her name and her latest project is titled "Just Keep Walking."  The project is simply outstanding and it has then wonderful songs on it, nine of which were written by Wanda.

The title song is the first one on the project and "Just Keep Walking" is a great song of encouragement.  This song reminds us, as Christians, to just keep walking because we are going Home.  What a great reminder and a great message.  "Singing The Same Song" is the next song on the project and Wanda has crafted a song that asks a very good question and that is why can't all of God's Children just get along because after all, we are all singing the same song. The next song on this project is titled "If You Have It Today" and this song is a great reminder of the power that we have through Christ!

"Blessed To Be A Soldier" is a beautiful song that reminds the listener that we are all blessed to be a Soldier of the Cross in our daily walk with the Lord.  The next track on the CD is titled "I'm A Winner Either Way."  The message of this song is all about how God can make us a winner no matter what we have been through or going to go through.  It is a great song with a great message.  "Born In Bethlehem" sounds like a Christmas song and, while I guess this song could be a Christmas song, it is also a great song any time of the year.  It talks of how the Christ Child was born to make us who we are when He died on the Cross for our sins!  What an awesome thought and truth! "Thank You For Loving Me" is a slow ballad that Wanda sings beautifully.  I love the chorus as it is a prayer of thankfulness set to music.
