Don’t you just love it when your music is on shuffle and an old song comes up? The melody takes you back in time and reminds you of different conversations, feelings and experiences. It is easy to get caught up in the expectation of what is new; when our favorite band will be releasing new music, what their new tour will be like and so on- but there is something wonderful to be said of the moments when we are reintroduced to our old favorite tunes. It’s like embracing an old friend you haven’t seen in years. For me, these moments refuel my soul and often bring me closer to God. Here are some of my favorite old(ish) albums that qualify as the tunes which have made me who I am today. Check out my list and let me know what your favorites are in the comment section below!

NF Pours Out All He Has In Passionate “All I Have” Music Video

NF

Hip-hop/alternative artist Nate Feurerstein, who performs and records as “NF,” is Capitol CMG Label Group’s most recent signing and most compelling new talent. Debuting the music video yesterday for his first single “All I Have,” the song will be available on July 22 at all digital outlets and will be featured on NF’s self-titled EP, releasing August 5th.

On his debut EP, this 23 year-old Gladwin, Michigan native shares his story with lyrical vulnerability complimented by raw energy. His music draws from many real life struggles, including being abused, struggling with anger issues, and losing his mother to a drug overdose.

“God used music to allow me to express my emotions, my pain, my anger, and guilt,” NF shares. “Through all this He has given me a passion for all the kids out there that might be going through some of the things I did. That’s why I rap and write the way I do, that’s why my music is raw and real. I believe music should have real meaning, for real life problems. God has used some of the worst things in my life for good.”

NF’s brand new video for “All I Have” can be seen below.

Album Review: Seventh Day Slumber – We Are The Broken

Seventh Day Slumber - We Are The Broken Album Cover

Review Date: 07/06/14
Review By: Iain Moss
Release Date: 05/13/14
Rating: 9.5 Stars (9.5 / 10)

 

There are certain bands which immediately come to Christian music fans’ minds whenever “Christian rock” is mentioned, and Seventh Day Slumber is usually one of the first to do so. Seventh Day Slumber, who were formed in 1996, are widely considered to be one of the best hard rock bands out there and are further considered to be one of the figureheads of Christian rock, if not of all Christian music, and deservedly so. Aside from their musical prowess though, they’re also known for the incredible ministry side of Seventh Day Slumber and their insanely powerful testimonies and talks. Lead singer Joseph Rojas’ testimony is one of the most moving, inspirational, and intense testimonies anyone could ever come across, and if you combine that with seriously great songwriting and musicianship you not only have a great band, but you have a phenomenal ministry.

In the lead up to their new album We Are The Broken, frontman and Seventh Day Slumber founder Joseph Rojas shared a little bit about the meaning behind the album and album title, “We want people to know that no matter where you’ve been or what you’ve been through, you are not a lost cause. You are not hopeless, and you are not unloved! That encapsulates the meaning of the title, We Are The Broken.” Right, without further ado, let’s take a closer in-depth look at Seventh Day Slumber’s 10th recording We Are the Broken…

Artist: Jessica Reedy
Track: God Has Smiled On Me
Album: From The Heart

“God has smiled on me, He has set me free,
God has smiled on me; He’s been good to me…
He is the source of my joy; He fills me with His love,
Every, every, everything that I ever ever needed, see the Lord He sends it down from above…
That’s when I realised that He’s so good, my God is good, He’s been good to me…”

God Has Smiled On Me” is a reminder that the Lord is all we need. In Him we can find joy, love and peace. Only in Him are these things truly possible.
