I have a confession to make and I don't care who knows it...
after listening to The Lower Lights I love a good hymn revival!!!
I was introduced to The Lower Lights while watching an episode of BYUtv's The Song That Changed My Life. I was initially drawn to it because the group included members of the Neon Trees. I was excited to find out that two of my local favorites, Ryan Shupe and Cherie Call, also joined the revival.
The Lower Lights is a group of local musicians who came together in 2009. Their goal was to revitalize these old songs and reconnect with them. After five days they had recorded 30 hymns. I heard that they performed at the Utah Arts Festival this year and was hoping to see and hear more from them.
I don't have to hope anymore. Their new album comes out tomorrow. Here is a preview (Warning: by clicking the play button you will be subjecting yourself to the desire to clap your hands, stomp your feet, and sing along.):
I know you will love it!!!!!!
