Josh Garrels: Love & War & The Sea In Between

This latest offering (free) from Josh Garrels is a truly amazing, well “fleshed-out” treatise of what has rattled around in his heart and mind for some time.  It is soulful and professional—don’t let that scare your Indie sensibility—while just being a fine listen. Let me know your thoughts.

Josh Garrels—White Owl mp3

Josh Garrels—Revelator mp3—For all the beats and world instruments and innovative guitar work, it will always be about the words with Josh Garrels. His stuff is drenched in musings  that encompass time-worn theology and pastoral wonderment, that delight in the  fauna of this world and a faith in another still to come. “Has this world been
so kind to you that you should leave with regret? There are better things ahead than any we leave behind.” So said the writer C. S. Lewis, and so echo the visceral yearnings, sometimes verbose yet often as unintelligible as the melodies on some of his best tracks, that make up this well-traveled troubadour’s trunk full of songs.

“Bread, wine, water, oil, good fruit:
These will help heal humanity, and my hope is to help serve some of these,” Garrels says. “I’m not always sure of myself, my aesthetic, my poetry, my  decisions, but I do know that this is my pursuit.”
