I don’t often attempt to review music. I have a wide variety of taste when it comes to music. I like just about any type. But there is something about folk music that I enjoy more than any other. Perhaps it is the emotions that is sung in the songs or possibly it is the ballads that describe real life. Folk music is an enjoyment to my ears. Now before we move on, let me specify that I listen to Christian folk and there are some artists out there that I really like.
I like music that has a different sound. Something that is not common and that is why one of my favorites is Josh Garrels. This guy is off the charts. From his melodic guitar rythms to his unique and versatile voice, I like him. But one thing that sets him a part is, in his own creative way, he brings a little hip hop flare to his music. Not rap, but rather poetic lyrics. It is sweet music to my ears.
For a limited time, you can download his new album for free. Check out his website here. I also uploaded one of my favorite songs off his new record. It incorporates the old hymn, Farther Along, and adds his own flare to it. Let me know what you think.
