A few weeks ago at a Presbyterian event, a new friend recommended this album to me: Josh Garrels’s “Love & War & the Sea In Between.” Since then, it’s been on almost constant repeat when I’m listening to music.
Music has always been a huge part of my life: beginning piano lessons as a young boy, playing clarinet, tenor saxophone, the baritone (for marching band in high school), acoustic guitar, bassoon (my last two years of high school and all through college and singing in various choirs in high school and beyond. I love music. And I find that I’m able to be moved spiritually and emotionally through music in ways that not much else can move me.
I’m always on the lookout for music that could be used in worship or other settings that doesn’t suck, and Josh Garrels doesn’t suck. If you’re looking for a phenomenal album, rich lyrics and great music, you should definitely check out “Love & War & the Sea In Between.” It’s cheaper to buy on Amazon.com by the way.
