Carman Homage - Our Turn Now

By in Articles, Music Videos, Video Flashback | 3 Comments

This is an impromptu review in homage of Carman’s passing. For those who may not know who he is, he was a singer/songwriter/performer whose music was all over contemporary Christian radio in the 80’s & 90’s. He did many ballads, but also dabbled with rock & rap & even kids music. Many of his songs were stories put to music. To get a good overview of his more upbeat stuff from his extensive discography, check out the following songs & today’s SOTD: A Witch’s Invitation, The Champion, God’s Got an Army, Addicted to Jesus w/ DC Talk, Great God, Who’s in the House & Sunday School Rock. And btw, could the backing band & guest vocalist be from Petra?

Sad to hear he’s gone, I just binged through a bunch of his music in January. “The Champion”, “Lazarus Come Forth”, “Mission 3:16”, “RIOT”, and “No Monsters” (nostalgia value from being young mostly) were my most iconic Carman songs. I didn’t realize until I listened recently how much his music had inspired what I appreciate in sound design.
