Sarah Macintosh - Current: A Review and GIVEAWAY



Singer, songwriter and storyteller Sarah Macintosh is less than a week away from releasing Current, her brand new 11-song project with Integrity Music. Its first single, "We Should Run,"  is currently at radio and can be heard here atiTunes

Macintosh hopes that "We Should Run," as well as all of the songs available on Current, take the listener on a spiritual and colorful journey. Macintosh elaborates, "I hope that the listener will grab onto them and say 'Yes! This is for me!' These are the songs of my heartbeat.” The song's lyrics share:



“We should run, we should be laughing,
We should look and see, He is lifted high!
We should shout, we should be dancing
We should call and find a Savior who’s alive!”

Current was produced by her husband, Jonny Macintosh, and J.T. Daly of Nashville’s famed indie rock outfit, Paper Route. Sarah Macintosh has been traveling heavily on the road promoting the new CD, visiting with key outlets such as HearItFirst.com and Relevant while performing her new songs across the country, touring from Florida to California. During her visit to Relevant, they filmed Macintosh for "The Drop" as well as for their "Studio Sessions." Her debut on "The Drop" will air February 28th, while "Studio Sessions" will be available on March 6th.

Current will be available to Christian retail stores within the U.S. through Provident Music Distribution and to mainstream retailers through Sony Music Distribution. It will also be available through all major digital service providers including Amazon and iTunes.

About Sarah Macintosh:

Known for her work with progressive rock band Chasing Furies, Macintosh now has three solo projects to her credit including the critically acclaimed The Waiters, The Watchers, The Listeners, The Keepers & Me. In addition to touring and collaborating with artists such David Crowder, Tim Hughes, Matt Redman, Vicky Beeching and Burlap to Cashmere, she speaks and leads worship at churches around the country.   
Until recently, her family made their home in San Diego, California, where Macintosh led worship for her father-in-law’s church, Horizon Christian Fellowship. Now, this Texas native is now waking up in cities around the country for speaking/singing engagements as her family relocates temporarily, working with churches to impact local communities. Rather than simply making a cameo in the lives of the people they’re ministering to, they are loving getting to know the Body of Christ on a more personal level.

My Review:

Are you a fan of Christian pop/rock music? If so, if you haven't heard of, or listened to, Sarah Macintosh, you need to. 

Macintosh's most recent release, Current, is a wonderful sounding CD, that I have caught myself listening to over and over again. With a stunningly, haunting voice you will be drawn to worship God in a new way. The lyrics are beautifully written, and you really get a true sense of Sarah's journey with God! This is a CD I will be listening to for many years to come. A couple of my favorite tracks are Hiding Place and Joy Comes In

I highly recommend this CD and give it a huge thumbs up!
