To those with stress, tension, frustration, or anything of the like, needing to be released for a while, consider listening to independent artist Jeremy Vanderloop’s “All Creation Sings,” released in the fall of 2012.
This 12-track album, by a multi-faceted musician who seems comfortable singing exactly what his heart cries to God at any given moment, has some truly sweet and mellow moments to relax a busy head and soothe a heavy heart. “Let Our Lives Sing,” “Beautiful,” “Redemptions Way” and “Deep Calls Out” may have an especially calming effect on even the most wound-up of minds. Songs such as “Illuminate the Sky” and “His Prize” are faster and more upbeat, bringing a balance to the album on the whole. All of the tracks have a way of pointing the focus upwards and reminding the human spirit of healing, of grace, of love—going beyond the everyday experiences of our lives—even the struggle and pain that Vanderloop is not afraid to say are real.
Daringly individual, full of beauty and always worshipful, “All Creation Sings” is welcomed refreshment, packaged in music.
