These past few weeks I’ve been partaking in bite-sized pieces this latest work: Slow Trauma by the musician known as Bill Mallonee. The Big Sky Ramblers is the current name of all who record and perform alongside him. These days it is mostly Bill and his kind bride, Muriah Rose. This release – yes I have […]
Excellent intro to the work of Bill Mallonee and and his ever changing but never less than excellent musical cohorts in this thing called: Magic, Life, Pain, Confession and sometimes fleetingly, but ultimately permanent Joy. Oh, and great folk-rock to bring a smile to your face through wit, and road weary wisdom, even if flavored with a […]
Beautiful Christmas music to play as an instrumental backdrop to reading your current book or wrapping presents for a loved one; or simply considering the love and majesty of the one true King. God bless you and may each of you find your true love in the one Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior.Filed under: Music […]

Originally released on “Surrounded By Lights” in 2008. Here is the new improved version. This is one of my favorite original songs to date. I just had to make some serious adjustments so this song could be what it was meant to be. Thanks for listening. credits Jesse Sprinkle: Vocals, Guitars, Piano, Drums, and Percussion […]
FREE DOWNLOAD One of Mr. Larry Norman’s songs I really liked. The Jesus Movement of the 70’s held “the Rapture” as a tenet of faith. They were simple, passionate about their faith in Christ’s Resurrection, atonement and Second Coming. I dunno what I think about the doctrine of eschatology anymore as far as a chronology […]

While carefully and passionately crafted art is highly sought after by this reviewer and music lover, there has to be more, much more to make it special. Music to be lasting and to truly take root must have something deeper. The music by itself or the music with vocals must speak to a longing or a need within me, acknowledged or suppressed.
The music that touches me the deepest is that which speaks of longing, seeking and most important: the revealing and unraveling of one broken life to another.
Hey, we're all a mess and need help from each other and from God. We can't go through this alone; we need the light cast dimly from one another to see the path before us and guide us to the true light.
