He Remembers

 

#EM Cityscape 1 16x9

‘He Remembers,’ included on the‘Love Strands’ album, was written back in the spring of 2016 and was inspired by a quote from novelist Elise Wisel, ‘God is God because He remembers.’ Free downloads are available only at eddymann.com.

He remembers my first breath of air
He remembers because he was there
And still my Maker is with me everywhere
He remembers and He’s with me now
ⓒ 2016 Eddy Mann (Love Strands)

Love Strands

3AB781BA-DA42-41C7-9280-1B3A82A0D570

Love Strands drops on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2020. It’s a collection of gospel-tinged songs that live in a blues neighborhood. All twelve tracks are culturally and spiritually inspired. I’ve really enjoyed recording and introducing the songs over the past few months. It’s my prayer that they would bring some comfort and clarity to those who hear them.

Rambling through my favor
Tempered to the thrill
Mulish by my manner
Your love bent my will

February Notes

#LS Cover* 1Besides the release of the Love Strands album, I’ve found myself settling into my southern digs, and designing a creative nest in which to continue writing and recording.

The calendar is sparse until the spring as my wife (Susan) and I enjoy our little beach community. Fortunately for us, it’s a little haven of spiritual inspiration. There are numerous strands of love that flow throughout the days and nights here, we count ourselves blessed on a daily basis!

Now go, and play nice!

All That I Am

3AB781BA-DA42-41C7-9280-1B3A82A0D570

In keeping with the new year, the song of the month All That I Am, was inspired by Spurgeon’s morning meditation on Psalm 103:2 – Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me.

Oh, that I’d weave your mercies into song
That my jewels of praise would form another crown
That my soul would give off sweet, sweet music
For your mercy endureth forever

January Notes

#LS Cover* 1I’m kicking off the New Year by releasing the fourth song from the Love Strands album. Last month’s song, Oh Loving God, Help Us, produced some interesting conversations. Your moments of sharing are always a blessing to me!

As of this writing, I’m on the other side of playing a pretty domestic role through the holidays, and now, with the New Year, I’m prepping for my journey south in a couple of weeks. Watch for the release of the Love Strands album on February 14, 2020!

Now go, and play nice!

Oh Loving God, Help us

3AB781BA-DA42-41C7-9280-1B3A82A0D570

I thought I’d let Robert Louis Stevenson’s Christmas poem speak for me this month. The song of the month Oh, Loving God, Help Us, was inspired and written around his offering.

“Loving Father, help us remember the birth of Jesus, that we may share in the song of the angels, the gladness of the shepherds, and the worship of the wise men.

Close the door of hate and open the door of love all over the world. Let kindness come with every gift and good desires with every greeting. Deliver us from evil by the blessing which Christ brings, and teach us to be merry with clear hearts.

May the Christmas morning make us happy to be Thy children, and the Christmas evening bring us to our beds with grateful thoughts, forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus’ sake. Amen.”
~ Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894)

Grace Is Not A Blue-Eyed Blonde

3AB781BA-DA42-41C7-9280-1B3A82A0D570

As November unfolds it always makes me aware of my blessings, and just how grateful I am for them. There’s a song on the Love Strands album called Grace Is Not A Blue-Eyed Blonde. It’s a song about the wonders of God’s grace, and it seemed appropriate for this month of thanksgiving.

Grace finds me when I’m not looking
Grace loves me when I’m not worthy
Grace visits me when I don’t deserve it
Grace is not a blue-eyed blonde

November Notes

#LS Cover* 1Susan and I have finally made it to our southern home. It was a long time coming. We’ve experienced a vivid season of loss over the past six months. Even as we arrived, as we pulled into the driveway, we lost yet another piece of our world. Yet as November reveals itself I feel the need to be thankful. I find God’s grace to be an amazing comfort in all seasons, and so it’s loving grace that’ll reenergize me, refocus me, and prayerfully renew me this month.

Now go, and play nice!

A Gethsemane Wink

My prayer life is a work in progress. It seems it’s always under construction as I search for a deeper place to connect with God. On my next release, there’s a song called ‘A Gethsemane Wink’ in which I bare a bit of my journey, both the successes and also the shortcomings. After all, being broken means we never arrive and there’s always more work to be done.

I’m a prayer whisperer in need of a Gethsemane wink

October Notes

#LS Cover* 1Over the weeks to come, I’ll be releasing songs from a new project called ‘Love Strands.’ The seeds of this album can be traced back to the spring of 2015 when I was experiencing a season of despair. In that moment of waiting, I was awakened to some of the most beautiful strands of love. As is my way, those sweet images and memories usually get shared through the medium of song. In this case, they make up the body of this work. It’s a genuine blessing to be able to share them, even if it’s one at a time.

Now go, and play nice!

The Ballad of Kerr

Version 2

As the Summer Run comes to a close, it’s time to reflect for just a moment on all the blessings that have been poured out on our lives. That’s not to say that there haven’t been concerns. In writing this I remembered a song from the Dyo album back in 2003. It’s called The Balled of Kerr, and it shares the optimistic view of a dear departed friend (Ed Kerr), that when asked how he was doing, always responded, ‘nothing bad ever happens to me, because Jesus loves me.’ And yes, that’s my youngest (Maddy) singing.

Eddie was a guiding light
A beacon of hope in the darkest night
Whenever the water rose above his head
He smiled and laughed and then he said …
‘Nothing bad ever happens to me’

September Notes

Version 2
As of this writing, there are still a few Summer Run dates to be completed. I’ve been blessed by the opportunities to share and hang with you all summer, and I’m looking forward to growing in the new relationships that have been a result of those gatherings. If we haven’t caught up yet, there’s still a couple of events left.

This past week Cross Rhythms released a nice review of the Worship in Spirit and Truth album. I really appreciate that they’re embracing diversity in worship music. Check out the review here.

I’m excited about the fall season. There are a number of projects near or completed for release, so keep an eye out for the new sights and sounds. I’ve also got a couple of new ministry opportunities that I’m praying over. Your prayers for clarity are welcome.

Now go, and play nice!
