In life, it's important to have a purpose; a continuing goal that pushes you toward something greater than yourself. What greater purpose can one have than to pursue the calling on one's life using their given abilities to minister and point people to God? That is the sole purpose of the Sean Gallagher Band. The expectations we have for our lives as well as this album are two fold; we want our lives to point people to God and the album to impart a message of hope through personal change. I wrote these songs while on a journey of personal change that I continue to trek. About a year ago, I was frustrated with everything. My marriage, my career, I just wasn't happy about anything in my life. I needed something to be different. I told God I needed to hear from Him. I was at a point where I was desperate to hear His voice. What He said was that I was the problem. I needed to change. I needed to quit complaining about everything and look at what I could change about myself cause I was selfish. It's been over a year since I said those words but I realize that it's a never ending journey and I can't be satisfied complaining about the situations and circumstances surrounding me. I want to go after something greater than myself and I think a lot of people feel the same way; people need to find their true purpose. Whether it's our job, family, economy or whatever the case may be, change always points back to us as individuals. That's the message of this album. Simple words; words are easy to say but not so easy to live or express. We have to get to a point where we want our hearts to change so we can affect change in the world around us. It starts with us but we can't do it on our own. We need God's help. That's the purpose and hope for our debut album, Simple Words. The message is simple. By surrendering yourself and allowing God to help, change is possible and so is living a full and exciting life. We hope you enjoy listening to Simple Words.
