I’m using a popular blogger term for one of my biggest discoveries this year (I know the year is early yet; and if you already know him l know I’m a bit stale):
It’s a haul because after I stumbled upon two of his videos on YouTube, you can believe I went on my phone and bought (in case you missed the bold font, note: I say bought not downloaded) his album. It’s the first time I’ve ever bought music online, I actually don’t download music either (I just sort of get off friends or some way).
Anyway, there are too many things I can say about the beauty that this young man is creating. Lemme just say a few:
1: At a time when I’m really getting bored with Christian artists recycling the same lines over and over again (eg: God, You are good, You are great, I worship You), Mr McReynolds comes and re-inspires me with fresh, original lyrics (check it out for yourself (YouTube, my dears). Better still, buy the album. 😉 Now, this is not to say that there should be a limit to how much the church proclaims God’s greatness and goodness. No. One billion songs cannot do GOD justice. The only way I can explain what I mean is that Mr McReynolds goes beyond the ‘theory’ of Christianity and addresses real, practical struggles (with a great voice and some of the best lyrics I’ve heard in a while).
2. I have just listened to two of his songs (I was so excited I decided to post before I listened to the rest of the album), but he’s just singing my heart in those two songs. I mean, if I recorded an album right now, I don’t think I would sing/word it better.
3. It’s brilliant.
Hope you check it out and enjoy!
Listening to the rest of the album. Honestly, it’s been so long since I’ve been this excited about music. Funny enough, his vocals aren’t something I’d usually jump on– but it’s… so beautiful
I’m almost jumping out of my bed here, goosebumps. No Grey (No Gray- US spelling) may be the most beautiful thing I’ve ever heard. The message is clear. I hear you Mr McReynolds.
