John Bowman: Media Love
I’m completely impressed by the quality of the songwriting, the arrangements, the instrumentation, and, as I mentioned two paragraphs earlier, the way these songs all fit together so well to create a conceptual collection of material. … I rate it at 4 1/2 Stars, which is higher than the vast majority of the music I hear and well worth your attention.
But since 1997, when he was confirmed as a minister, Bowman has also had a passion for preaching and sharing the message of his faith. He married into The Isaacs, one of the first families of Gospel music, and all of his solo projects have been songs of faith. So it’s no surprise that his newest album, Worship Him, follows the same path.
If Alison Krauss is the angel of Roots and Bluegrass music, John Bowman is the male counterpart. With his light and earthy tenor that calls to mind the late John Denver, Bowman emotes an organic serenity in the notes he articulates.
