Product Notes

I've always wondered what people mean when they describe songs as being 'earthy'. Now, without understanding what others may mean when they use the word, I'm using it to describe the songs on my latest album, The Calling of a Priest. The title, The Calling of a Priest, might sound ethereal, but the songs remain to me 'earthy' - rooted in basic rock that has been the foundation of the large part of the music that regular folks have listened to for the last 50 years or so. The phrase 'the calling of a priest' can sound so other worldly and it is, and yet that other world often intersects with this world in ways that strike us by their ordinary 'this world'- liness. Holy feet adorned by dust, as a holy tongue speaks words common to everyone. The day is hot, typical city smells of food and waste and sweat, and there He is, in the middle of it, and there is the calling, which so often takes us down roads that, unless we have the eyes to see otherwise, seem so common. The road is a spiritual road and yet there is still dust on our very physical feet. We are both spiritual and physical. It's fitting for the songs to have an earthy feel, because we are earthy and the call is earthy, in spite of the fact that it connects us with the other world, or maybe because of it. He is called, and He calls us - and there is the calling - to follow and travel this sometimes dusty road that leads us to once again be what we once were - to once again know the One that we once knew. To look in His face, and know that His calling is to be our great High Priest - and that He is our calling.
