Jeremy Riddle - "Furious" CD Review & Giveaway - Ends 9/30

Jeremy Riddle's newest CD, "Furious", is due to be released on 9/20/11 by New Day Distribution.

Riddle describes Furious saying, "It's hard to come up with words that depict the magnitude of Christ's love - the depth and width of it. Furious doesn't work outside of the context of love; we tend to translate the word as angry, but I see it as a super-powerful force; stronger, deeper, broader than our vocabulary can fully describe."

Until reviewing this CD, I didn't realize that I had heard his music before. His name just didn't ring a bell, but his voice did! The Riddle Band has opened for artists such as Rebecca St. James and Big Daddy Weave (who both happen to be family favorites) and has also played events with Brenton Brown. His contemporary Christian style appeals to my entire family.

As a homeschooler,  I found it positively fantastic that Jeremy was homeschooled himself all the way through high school. Jeremy served as the youth pastor at the Anaheim Vineyard and is now part of the worship ministry at Bethel Church in Redding, CA. 

Several of the tracks on Furious are also featured on Be Lifted High,  the most recent album from Bethel  Church.

“These songs are a reflection of being part of something bigger than just me,” Jeremy says. “Through some significant growth in understanding and living out humility from a very independent place, I’ve shifted into a place where I can’t even claim this record is completely inspired by me. There are so many elements of the album that could never have flowed from me had I not been connected to people walking out life with me.” 

Although I enjoyed the entire album, I think my favorite tracks would have to be: Love Came Down, You Are Good, and Glory to the Lamb. It took me awhile to put my finger on it, but I finally realized that Jeremy Riddle reminds me of U2, not so much in content, but certainly in style.
