New Christian Artist CD Give-Away!

TalAcaciaCheck out this new Christian artist, Tal & Acacia!  I got a copy of their music to review and Morgan & I immediately listened to it.  We love their fun, fresh sound.  The music has a great beat; I’ll definitely add this to the playlist for my morning walks! 

The duo-sisters Tal & Acacia grew up in Portland, Maine, and first began songwriting and playing guitar in their teen years, while the family spent an insightful year in Russia aiding a humanitarian orphan ministry. Now, in their early twenties, Tal & Acacia aim to create songs that wake listeners and refresh the soul "like a cold splash of water for those who hear it."

Especially in desert times, the songwriting duo's music ministers and inspires. Musically, Tal & Acacia bear resemblance to such acts as Feist, Norah Jones, Imogen Heap and Sixpence None The Richer, and credit songwriting inspiration from artists like Keith Green and Stevie Wonder. The quirky pop sound of Tal & Acacia's debut album, titled Wake Me, is a breath of fresh air-defined by catchy choruses-and girded in joy. Produced by Monroe Jones (Ginny Owens, Chris Rice, Third Day, Caedmon's Call), Tal & Acacia's Wake Me is distinctly rich and infectious, and intuitively embraces the clash between the principled, spiritual inner self and a confusing, glittery outer culture.  (FROM THEIR WEBSITE)

Thanks for the tip. I would have to say of the 3 songs, "Yahweh" is my favorite. I really don't care too much for "Merry Go Round" though.

These gals are just up my alley! I love what I have heard so far and I know my daughters will be crazy about them. I can see these girls making it big! I think I like the first song the best, ClearView, cause I always let the upbeat stuff catch my attention first lol. Thanks for the intro to this new cd and thanks for the opp in your giveaway!
