Life Music: a review
I stumbled on Jonathan McReynolds’ music on a blog that did a short video interview on him. Didn’t know he was a singer/songwriter until the interviewer asked him to play a song – as soon as he started strumming on his guitar I was already asking myself “Where has he been all my life and why am I just hearing about him now?!”
After having both albums on repeat for the day and then scouring for every single video of his live performance – he’s got plenty,
I tweeted him these words:
@jonmcreynolds thank you for writing honest, haunting, healing, beautiful music that touches the heart and soul.
This is the most accurate description I can give for his music. Except maybe to add vulnerability.
And to my surprise! he responded:
“Thank you for listening! #gloryup”
Seems I’m not alone in my appreciation of Jonathan McReynolds and his singing/songwriting abilities.
Since last week, his timeline has been flooded with congratulations and well-wishes on his Grammy nomination!
In my book, if you’re able to touch hearts with the strum of a string and encourage with the words in your voice, you’re already a winner.
Jonathan McReynolds does both excellently.
