I had the opportunity to preview 4 songs from Robert's new album "Identity". Robert has a strong, beautiful voice, and I especially enjoyed how each song used a driving tempo and beat, well integrated with the lyrics, to deliver a specific message. Some thoughts on each:
- In "Jesus", we are reminded of the one name we need to pray on our darkest day.
- "Breaking My Heart" is a story of being transformed and letting go of worldly things to follow Christ.
- "Identity" is about acknowledging and living our Christian identity.
- "You Hold Me Now" reminded me very much of the well-known poem "Footprints" in that Jesus helps us carry our daily crosses, whatever they may be.
A very enjoyable and inspiring album!
You can hear some of Robert's music on his website, and he even has a free iphone app on iTunes.
