I Heart Jon Foreman

I've been recently listening to a lot of Jon Foreman--lead singer of Switchfoot. He has been putting out 6-song EPs based on each season. So far, you can download Fall, Winter, and most recently, Spring. The albums perfectly embody each season in a folksy, acoustic-rock sort of way. They are also some of the most honest and worshipful albums I've heard in a very long time. These songs deal with pain, love, redemption, and the kingdom of God in insightful and emotionally-gripping ways. "Your Love is Strong" is one of the most powerful songs I've heard about the Lord's Prayer.

  1. great songs from a great songwriter... my personal fav is 'fall'... 'the cure for pain' is a deep haunting song and when it comes on, i stop what i am doing to listen without distraction... i wasnt sure what i would think of four albums from only one of the bandmembers of one of my favorite bands... but i was happily suprised...(guess i shouldnt have been though)(lotta talent and passion in his music)

    great listen...
