Music Inspiration: Josh Garrels

If you are a fan of music good music GREAT music and you haven't heard of Josh Garrels, then something is wrong with you.  He is the definition of indie artist: recording all of his music at home, hand pressing artwork onto CD sleeves, and making beautiful art that reaches the depths of the soul.

He teamed up with Mason Jar Music to record and film a bunch of music on location at Mayne Island, and the results are breathtaking. We just received our copy of the documentary film The Sea In Between and after watching it, I feel all kinds of inspiration...not just to be a better musician, but to be a better person (as cheesy as that sounds).  His lyrics speak so much truth about letting your faith be ever present in your life, and that the goodness of the Creator will be reflected in his creation if you let him in.

Check out a clip of one of the songs from the film here:
