Sometimes the best thinking happens in the car. Maybe it's in the morning commute or getting the kids where they need to be, but the car can be a sanctuary at times. It's in this sanctuary that it became clear life, at it's best, is a Beautiful Mess. We are blessed with the beauty of loving relationships, random acts of kindness and the grace of God. We are challenged with our own selfish pride, the fear of what's next and that jerk that just changed lanes without using his blinker. The five songs on this CD, just long enough for that commute, describes a practical faith that longs for eternity, but first recognizes we've got to get through the day. With each song you'll find rich vocals, powerful arrangements and heartfelt lyrics. Together the 5 songs offer a range of styles. Beautiful Mess and Solid Ground offer up a classic rock style with solid beats and a great electric guitar. Shake Me has a punk flair driven by a staccato guitar. They Know Your Name and Have You Ever Been Loved are sweet ballads that build with glorious string arrangements. More than anything we hope this speaks to someone, and through that, they are blessed.
