Acquired Taste--Jeremy Clay Price

One of Wade and mine's favorite things in life is music -- good music. We are always looking for artists off the beaten path with a great voice and lyrics that don't sound the same every song.

So imagine how thrilled I was when my friend, Jen, asked if I wanted to preview her husband's new CD, Acquired Taste. After listening, it was hard to pick a favorite, but right now I'm going with London.

I love the sound--the acoustic guitar and Jeremy's voice are so soulful.

"Joy in the suffering....break these chains, tear down these old walls."

--This is definitely a prayer I need. I feel like every time I listen I am really catching new things in the music and lyrics. It also has a sound I can actually feel, not just hear.

One of the coolest things about getting "older" is being able to see more and more how the Lord weaves our lives so intricately and perfectly. Sitting in a church pew in Littlefield, TX when I was in Junior High, I never would have thought that I would be blogging friends with my pastor's older son's wife.

My parents had kept up with Jeremy over the years through his dad and in turn, my dad kept me up to date. They would tell me about YWAM, them changing ministries and then Dad passed along Jen's blog to me and well, here we are now with a Blog Tour! (and the best part is...God's still weaving! the rest is yet to come...)

From Jeremy...
"I have been writing songs for over 15 years and spent much of my early adult life playing music all over the world. The last few years I have set it aside while building Ten Thousand Homes. But now is the time. I chose songs that were not all written recently. One was written this year, while the others go back as far as 8 years ago. I really wanted to represent a journey, and while this is a simple recording, I am extremely proud of it! What I know now is that this is only the beginning!"

I totally agree and can't wait to hear more!
