There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of one of my current favorite musicians. I’m not writing this to say I know more than you, I’m just stating an opinion of fact. His name is Phil Wickham and his music is mostly mellow and chilled out, but at times it gets a bit more energetic. He has two studio albums, a self-titled debut (2006) and Canons (2007), along with a new live recording that I’ll tell you more about below.
Before I keep going, I know what some of you are thinking, “I really don’t have the time or the money to invest in new music right now.” Believe me, I understand that sometimes it seems like too much work to catch up on a new artist or band’s collection of music, so I’m going to make this really easy for you. The rest of this post will be a reading & clicking exercise that is totally optional, kinda like the choose your own adventure books you read as a kid. Are you ready? Here we go…
Do you want to learn about some great new music? (If yes, read on. If no, go back to whatever you were doing. The choice is yours.)
Do you like free stuff? (Same deal. Yes = read more. No = check your facebook account again.)
Cool. I’m glad you’re still reading. You no doubt already know that you can check out Phil Wickham’s music the same way you’d check out any new music (iTunes, myspace, youtube, etc.). If you chose to follow one of those links and didn’t like what you heard, feel free to stop reading now (thanks for playing a long this far). If you want to stay in the game a while longer, lower your eyes and read the next paragraph.
If you made it this far you probably fit into one of the following categories,
a) you followed a link and liked what you heard (and you want to hear more)
b) you didn’t follow a link but still have an interest in following along (these are the risk takers)
c) you want to learn more about other FREE options to check out new music (even though you didn’t know this was an option until now)
d) you were already a Phil Wickham fan (possibly even before I was)
Regardless of which category you best fit in, you’ve made it to the pot o’ gold at the end of the bloggy rainbow. I’m glad you’re here because I have great news to share with you. How do I know you will think it’s great news? Because any readers who don’t like great/free music have already been filtered out. As a reward for your good taste in music and commitment to finding free stuff, here’s the good news I promised a few sentences ago.
