Songs for Advent

Over the course of a December day, I am often forgetful of the weight of God's gift to us through Jesus. During Advent, expectations are heightened as we celebrate Christ's coming.

Thankfully, songs during the season remind us of this and I'm lucky to have a few incredibly talented friends who have specifically celebrated Advent with their craft of songwriting.

Take a listen to Young Oceans in the video below and buy it here.

Also, please check out the Robbie Seay Band's Advent EP here.

To finish this Advent season meditating on scripture, you can download a free eBook from Desiring God, "Good News of Great Joy", here.

Also, "O Come Let Us Adore Him" is a common theme song for Advent, and you can listen to a version Tyler and I did last year here:

Lauren Chandler: The Narrow Place

One of my favorite aspects of friendship occurs when I have known someone as a incredible person, and only later found out the individual's immense talent.

Lauren Chandler is one of those people.

Lauren does an incredible job of lyrically painting encouragement to her listeners to rely in the Lord in the midst of trial. She has definitely earned the right to portray these words so vividly.

Sonically, her voice is so smooth and the players are fantastic at building the song and not overdoing it.

With this first EP, The Narrow Place, now available for all to listen, these worshipful lyrics, great songs, and incredible musicians have cooked up an offering definitely worth lending your ear to.
