I have a great new CD!  Furious, is by Jeremy Riddle and it was just released yesterday.(9/20)  It's fantastic!  This is his third release, and critics agree, his best.

Do you know Jeremy Riddle?  If you don't you should check him out. He is an extremely talented singer, and he sings from his heart.  He loves God, and wants everyone to know it.

I'm not sure how to describe his style.  He's a Christian rock artist, but the CD takes the listener through many moods and it's music everyone can agree on.

Are you wondering about the title?  Jeremy describes Furious by 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."

When you finally hear the tune, you'll be singing the song for days.  (It's that good!)  The lyrics are beautiful.  You'll hear gratitude, encouragement, redemption, and an awareness of grace.

His love is deep, His love is wide
And it covers us
His love is fierce, His love is strong
It is furious
His love is sweet, His love is wild
And its waking hearts to life

If you'd like to hear the songs yourself, you'll find snippets on his webpage, on the Vineyard Music website and  iTunes.

There are 12 tracks:
1. Fall Afresh
2. Furious
3. Love Came Down
4. One Thing Remains
5. Acquitted
6. You Are Good
7. Walk In The Promise
8. One Thirst
9. Glory To The Lamb
10. The Lord Is My Shepherd
11. Here
12. Always

In addition to being a talented musician, he is an active member of the worship ministry at Bethel Church in California.  I'm not surprised that he was homeschooled.   (Hooray for homeschooling!)

Jeremy Riddle will be playing some live dates in conjunction with the album release.  To keep up to date with concerts, releases, and fan news, follow him on facebook and twitter.

Oh, and here's something else!  If you visit the Vinyard Music Facebook Page, you'll find a Free Download of 3 songs from Jeremy's Live album, Prepare The Way: Live.
