Who else is going to Cornerstone 2011?
Portland folk musician Josh Garrels has released a long, beautiful poetic album. Oh, yeah, and it’s free!
Watch an animated music video of the first track from Josh Garrels’s new album.
Today, folk musician Josh Garrels released his fifth album, Love & War and the Sea in Between, for free on bandcamp. If you’re not familiar with Garrels, he mixes a folk guitar and instrumentation with loops and rhythms and a bit of spoken word with some quality lyrics about both the natural and spiritual worlds. Check it out now!
Cornerstone Festival has started listing days and times for the bands on this year’s lineup. There don’t seem to be any big conflicts this year – although you may not be able to watch full sets from both Petra and Children 18:3! As always, dates and times are subject to change and more bands will probably be added. Also no details yet on the return of the Come&Live tent, which will mostly likely have artists playing on Tuesday.
Hillsong United goes back to the studio for a new worship album full of deep layers and intensity.
