Music with an impact: Taryn Leia Prescott’s “Songs of the Bride”

I am very picky when it comes to music, and even pickier when it comes to Christian music. The past few decades have delivered some lamentable samples of Christian musicians who either have never read the Bible or are terribly confused about what market they’re targeting.

But every once in a while, we’re blessed with some real gems. One example that I have really enjoyed recently is Taryn Leia Prescott‘s Songs of the Bride. Heartfelt, genuine and biblically deep, her lyrics draw heavily from the Psalms (there’s also a beautifully rendered hymn), with an unembarrassed honesty about the pain and passion of the Christian life. The music is simple and beautiful, and her voice artful and sweet. I have the joy of knowing Taryn and her husband Peter personally, and I know that they both mean and live every word in the album.

You can listen to all 7 songs here and purchase them for any price you want. There’s also an iTunes version here.
