He Who Has Ears is one man’s quest to find “good” christian music.
The music you’ll hear comes from artists with a wide range of intentions. There are those who have set out to make music solely to express their belief and passion for Christianity, there are those who write songs about anything that affects them in their personal lives some of which involves Christianity, and there are even those who are just fascinated by the unique passion and fervor found in Gospel music.
But the reason I play these artists is to attempt to answer one central question: “Can Christian themes be successfully incorporated into music?” specifically without sounding like a trite love ballad to a creator, without lyrics that can be easily misconstrued as sexual innuendo, without those middle aged guys with frosted tips, and soul patches, etc.
These artists, with such diverse backgrounds, surely do not ascribe to a singular, unified set of beliefs, and it would be foolish of me to believe I could have any significant insight into their individual beliefs, without knowing them personally.
This show is meant to spark discussion- spiritual, musical, and otherwise. It’s intention is to prove to myself and others that christian music doesn’t have to make your ears bleed, and so long as you still have ears I hope you’ll give it a chance.
