Bebo Norman Lights of Distant Cities CD Review and Giveaway

Bebo Norman is a contemporary folk-pop-rock Christian musician from Columbus, Georgia. Light Of Distant Cities is Bebo Norman's 8th studio album. It was released on October 22nd via BEC Recordings. In his seventeen-year discography this is the first time the artist has brought his close friend and multi-instrumentalist Gabe Scott on board as co-producer. Together with Ben Shive (Andrew Peterson, Sara Groves) this album has been produced.

This album is truly a creative masterpiece and a definite keeper. I love his use of lyrics and instruments. I don't mind playing this one over and over again. I don't see myself tiring of it, ever. The greatest thing about this album is how it speaks to the listener. It beckons the listener to reach for the light and hope that is in Christ especially in despair and darkness. Bebo has been there. He has an insiders perspective and these songs resonate this to his audience. The theme of light and darkness, desperation and recovery is profoundly evident throughout the eleven-song track list. The depth of his music is so personal, thoughtful and beautiful.
"You can't understand light unless you understand darkness, because that's where life is most often lived - somewhere between the two. It's messy and it's beautiful all at the same time," says Bebo Norman.

I would like to hear the ocean cd. I saw Bebo Norman in concert quite a few years ago when he was starting out and was on tour with third day. I have loved his music since!

I'm in the mood for holiday music, so CHRISTMAS FROM THE REALMS OF GLORY sounds like something I'd enjoy.
