Here & at Home
Brad Griffith is a refreshingly bright singer/songwriter that will stir your heart and feed your mind. The 26 year old Alabama native has a knack for delivering deep spiritual truth in a fresh and tangible way reminiscent of acts such as Caedmon's Call or Andrew Peterson. With an almost completely acoustic arrangement, Brad delivers memorable melodies and well-crafted instrumentation on his debut solo project, 'Here and At Home'. From the first track to the last, Brad sets forth to encourage his listener's faith in Jesus Christ. Our greatest endeavor in life is the pursuit of a love relationship with our God and Creator. 'Here and At Home' illustrates the divine as well as the human element of that relationship. 'Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing' is a testimonial hymn of God's unmerited grace while 'When You Woke Me' attempts to comprehend the mystery of great love of our gracious Savior. 'If I Sing' tackles the complexity of our motives as the Psalm-based 'Before a Word' declares God's full knowledge of even our deepest thoughts. Story songs such as 'Lothlorien' and 'So She'll Know' will have listeners hanging on every line to discover deeper meanings with each listen. The importance of family relationships is also freshly woven into the tapestry of songs. In the song, 'Wife of My Youth', Brad challenges a popular idea on love with the line, 'They say that you don't know what you have until it's gone / Well, I say you don't know until you love it on and on.' 'Song for Papa' carries the idea of family legacies of faith and integrity that are both remembered and strived for. 'Here and At Home' is both soothing and stirring. If so, it is only a reflection of the Gospel it sings of. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is just that, at once comforting and compelling. May you be comforted and compelled by Christ. May you be encouraged through these songs.
