Description of Waiting by Josh Blakesley

A relative newcomer, Josh Blakesley has always oozed talent. With this stunning sophomore release, that talent--songwriting prowess and soaring vocals, among others--has come to fruition. Serving up 12 punchy, inventive pop, rock and funk tracks, Waiting gives convincing testimony: blessings really do come to those who wait on the Lord.

Funk gem a la Stevie Wonder Think Stevie Wonder or Parliament Funkadelic--but with a gospel message. Exalting God from beginning to end, the song ends like any good revival, with preacher Josh calling out, "Can I get a witness?! Can I get an amen?!" Caught up in the funk, you can't help but shout, "Amen!" Vigorous rock tracks, delicate ballads Other highlights include "Pour Out My Heart," a vigorous rock track that reflects on the sacrifices involved in following Christ: "I come to the altar to give up my life, hungry for mercy from you." A delicate ballad written for his infant daughter, "Sophie'
