Actually this is the first time had listen to Cory Asbury and I realized that there are other great artists in Christian Music industry aside from Hillsong and Planetshakers. As I listened to Reckless Love, I got interested to his other songs and that made me complete the entire album. Cory Asbury filled my taste in music. Secular has never run of loud and aggressive music that is why when it comes to Christian music, I’m always looking for mellow and positive music which is Asbury songs all about.
Aside from Reckless Love, I like Water and Dust. It is very soothing and the chorus is very catchy is especially on the part of “don’t lose hope”. I also noticed that Cory Asbury song’s are easy to play which is a plus for me and also for those who want also to play a christian song and not to think how skillfully they are in playing it. As part of worship team, I always get caught of decision making of either I’m going to focus on worshiping God or the way I play the song. I know I have an commitment to play my instrument skillfully but there are times that I’m totally carried away and I want to stop what we are doing and just raise my hands. With Asbury’s songs that mostly composed of 4 chords, you can play the song easily and focus on worshiping God. Maybe because I’m not that good musician because I can’t do both things especially on difficult songs that requires my full attention. I hope someone can relate on me in this part 🙂
Cory Asbury opened up my eyes with other music to listen which I’m also excited to work with. I’m looking forward to fill this website with different inspiring songs not only from popular artist but all musicians I’m going to discover in my journey working this project.
