I’m Glad You’re Here: songs of hope and struggle (2016)

IGYH front-lowresFrom it’s opening line – “I thought of you again today…” – this may be the most intimate, raw, humorous, and ultimately hopeful album that Bryan has released to date. From the pain and yearning of “I’m Glad You’re Here” to the irrepressible groove of “Greater Works Than These,” from the grit and challenge of “Wrestling With the Scriptures” to the side-splitting hilarity of “My Baby Wants Secure Retirement,” these songs are the sound track of a journey of hope and struggle…

New World Coming (a SmallTall Music compilation, 2002-2012)

pouches_2000Compilation drawn from five albums released between 2002-2012, including a new (2012) recording of “You’re Not Alone.” An excellent introduction to the corpus of Bryan’s “songs of faith for small and tall.” From the introduction, written by Brian McLaren and David Csinos: “Bryan is a minstrel, a prophet, a visionary, and a follower of Jesus who invites listeners of all ages to join him in “infiltrating the world with the love of God.” His music is captivating, his lyrics are theologically rich and thought-provoking, and his voice invites us all to live God’s kingdom wherever we are.”

Detectives of Divinity (2011)

pouches_2003Singing scripture in new ways, these are songs that help us to explore how we are part of the ongoing story of what God is doing in the world. From the blistering bluegrass tune “New World Coming” to the evocative “Make Room”… from the playful “Detectives of Divinity” to the stark “Lofty Words”… from the fun sing-along “Fruit of the Spirit” to the vivid storytelling of “Take Heart,” this is a collection of songs that bring us face to face with the realities of our day-to-day life in light of the scriptural story, and in a way that gets “small and tall” singing and talking and laughing and dancing and praying together.

A New Heart (2009)

My Money Talks: songs for worship (2007)

mmtcoverwithborderJesus had a lot to say about money, but the songs we sing rarely do. This is a collection of new and original songs that are deeply scriptural, intensely personal, musically memorable, and readily singable. Leans more toward the “tall” than the “small”. Musical styles range from folk, southern gospel, “praise and worship” rock and forays into “world music” with multi-layered African percussion on one track and infectious Latin rhythms on another.
