Free Download – Pilgrim

Pilgrim - self titled

Once again, Josh White (formally Telecast) pushes the boundaries of great worship music with his latest project, Pilgrim.

Pilgrim is singer-songwriter Josh White‘s newest incarnation, envisioned and recorded over the past year and a half, with production and mixing help from Josiah Sherman. Inspired by the soundtrack of his youth, the record draws deeply from White’s love of glam, new wave, and trip-hop. It’s as if Roxy Music merged with New Order, and was remixed by Massive Attack.

If there are parameters for what is appropriate for “sacred music”, this record most definitely breaks that mold.

You are missing out if you don’t at least listen to that first track, but Im pretty sure you will download it 30 seconds in…

Free Download: The Followers – Wounded Healer

The Followers‘ “Wounded Healer” is the first release for Deeper Well Records, a gospel collective that has been birthed out of Door of Hope Church in Portland Oregon. Songwriter Josh White (of Telecast) teamed up with Eric Earley (of Blitzen Trapper), and friends to create a 70′s infused worship experience. Mixing R&B, country, rock, and folk, “Wounded Healer” may draw one back to the days of the Jesus Movement, or push one forward into a new and exciting era of music for the church. We call it neo-gospel!

Its awesome! Think “70s hippie worship”. I hope this style of worship music catches on in a big way, but I think The Followers are going to be one of my new favorite bands….

Free Download:Josh White- Light Of The World

LightOfTheWorld-josh white

I get a little tired of Christmas releases this time of year. Not because I don’t like Christmas music, but because it seems like every artist (young, old, forgotten, upcoming, you get the idea), but because the majority of the music that does come out feels very stale. The songs don’t feel joyful our heartfelt, just music artists going through the motions to be thrown into the never ending void that is “holiday” music.

Light Of The World is completely different.  In the talented hands of Josh White, former singer of pop-rock band Telecast, these songs feels less practiced and more worshipful.  Which, considering the source material for the music, feels more honest.  What Light of the Worldwill give you is a bunch of songs that you have heard before sung in a way you most likely haven’t heard.  Joyful, worshipful, and intimate.

I also need to mention that Josh White’s BEC Recordings debut, Achor, came out this week, and I recommend it for just about anybody.  I have had a hard time NOT listening to it since I got it about two months ago.  Go pick it up and support the real artists in this scene!
