Stories Behind The Songs - Episode #146

posted: July 24th, 2015

These "story" episodes are some of my favorites, and I have plans to do 2 new versions of this later this year. There is something about the power of story that can help you become an even more active listener, and in turn often allows your soul to glean more from the song.  I hope that happens for you!  (Dave)

Fathers’ Day Special - Episode #319

posted: June 19th, 2015

Sometimes when thinking about a musical ode to dads, folks have a hard time thinking beyond "Butterfly Kisses" or some other tear-jerker.  But we wanted to add our "gourmet music" voice into the celebration.  Besides great music from Brandon Heath, Julie Lee, Balla Dear, and JJ Heller (among others), we also hear about personal reflections on the value of fatherhood from singer-songwriters Christopher Williams and Ben Shive.  Hope this adds a nice soundtrack to your holiday weekend!  (Dave)

Hymn Remakes - Episode #296

posted: October 3rd, 2014

There may not be a better example of "gourmet music" than the hymns.  They are spiritually significant, transcend generational and denominational lines, and have stood the test of time.  I love hearing remakes of these classic songs, and often times it breaths new life into these vintage choruses.  One track that really blew me away was Steven Curtis Chapman's rootsy, down-home remake of "Blessed Assurance," which is one of my all-time favorite hymns.  We also love …Read More »
