REVIEW OF A FRESH WIND: The Second Sound

ChristianMusic.com asked Micah Stampley, How would you describe your music?

Micah Stampley replied, "The songs of the Lord. Most of the time I find that the "industry" does not know how to categorize me to a specific genre. I write and sing how God gives it to me and they are songs that any race, nationality or culture can sing and/or receive from."

Micah Stampley explains further, "I have a hard time describing my music. It as a sound that can't be categorized. Many times we try to box God's songs into a category so that people will be able to identify with a particular sound. However, we must get to a place where we understand that worship is not a genre and praise is not a category, but a way of life that we have and it's how God created us to be; worship beings."

"Think about it! Any of us know of someone who worships something or someone. None of of us ever cease to worship. Just because someone one may not be a worshiper of Jesus Christ doesn't mean they're not worshipers," (of something else).

"The question is; Where does your worship go? It's who we are and it can't be called or categorized as anything else. But to those who can't relate to anything else but genre's and categories; put me in the 'praise and worship' category."

OVERVIEW

WOW! What an album! It is very much evident that the Lord has truly blessed Micah Stampley with some very special gifts, which are showcased in this collection of songs! After soaking in these "songs of the Lord", found on this CD, A FRESH WIND: THE SECOND SOUND, it is obvious to this reviewer that Micah Stampley is an independent, immensely talented vocalist, songwriter Christian Music artist / performer, who is in tune with the leadings of the Holy Spirit, boldly using his gifts and talents to offer songs which are outside the box of established genre norms.

Elements from Contemporary Christian, R & B, soul, traditional and urban Gospel, ballads, rock, and standard praise and worship are weaved together in interesting combinations making refreshing compositions which are indeed hard to categorize by traditional means. Micah's music surely does make good use of / expand the boundaries of musical elements from these genres, much to the puzzlement of the musical establishment, but to the delight and benefit of a wide listening audience.

Other elements one finds in this album, which make a collection of songs truly enjoyable and inspiring include a terrific sense of dynamics and musical instinct throughout the songs,  memorable to infectious melodies, well-played, inspiring performances by instrumental voices, nice counter melodies, a variety of rhythms, meaningful, inspiring lyrical messages, and terrific vocals from folks who know how to sing with inspiration!

These songs would also be a blessing to any contemporary service in any denomination or non-denominational gathering of the faithful, speaking also to those who are on the fence about making a commitment to the Lord.

It is no wonder that this latest release, A FRESH WIND: A SECOND SOUND is nominated for a Stellar Award, as Best Praise and Worship Album. For, this CD is a stellar example of phenomenal  vocal talent, skilled musical  and lyrical creativity, inspirational dynamics and the ability to let one's faith in the Lord shine throughout the music presented; characteristics which are very much present in this uplifting collection of songs.

s

Let's Talk about the Vocals.......

It is very much evident that the Lord has truly blessed Micah Stampley with some very special gifts, which are showcased in this collection of songs. The most outstanding characteristic of these songs which grabs hold of the listener, is the quality and creative versatility of the lead vocals and the solid harmonies in the backup vocal ensemble.

Micah Stampley's vocal abilities are truly stunning. Micah not only has the ability and breath control to dynamically express vocally with emotional umph the songs presented (I BELIEVE * FERVENT PRAYER * NEVER LET YOU GO) but he has the ability to use his multi-octave voice to effortlessly slide up octaves (UNFAILING LOVE), smoothly making difficult note intervals, sometimes holding the note a few measures at full throttle volume or being poignantly soft, making it all sound so easy!  (CALL TO THE NATION * HOLY VISITATION)

The lead vocals are wonderfully supported by a talented vocal ensemble who not only stay on key, know their harmony parts / required singing style, understand dynamics and breath control, but also sing with feeling and conviction, getting into the spirit of the song and letting their own faith flow through their performances. (WE LIFT YOU UP * YOU ARE LORD & MARVELOUS * NO COMPROMISE)

It can be said by this reviewer that Micah Stampley and his backup vocal ensemble truly bring the songs to life in a very real spiritual sense, uplifting and encouraging the spirit and soul, while offering a high standard of vocal quality and musical enjoyment.

Let's talk about the compositions and lyrical messages presented........

Like the vocals, the musical and lyrical content of these "songs of the Lord" are also varied and musically interesting; offering a delightful choice of compositions which fit perfectly with the lyrics and theme of each song presented, ranging from poignant piano ballads to stirring anthems of faith (UNFAILING LOVE * ANOTHER PLACE *FERVENT PRAYER) to Micah Stampley's version of contemporary Christian worship songs (YOU ARE LORD * I BELIEVE), sometimes blending in elements of Gospel, rhythmic urban and soul (NO COMPROMISE), to rip-roaring, energetic praise and worship anthems (MARVELOUS - SOVEREIGN GOD).

The gospel influence is strongly felt in the call to worship and praise anthems (WE LIFT YOU UP * HOLY VISITATION * CALL TO THE NATIONS), in the VAMPS in most of the songs, and is an underlying influence in other cuts as well, though this influence has been broadened to meet the musical tastes of a wider audience without loosing any of its endearing qualities!

The musical talent is also flowing and on fire in the musicians who brought the compositions roaringly to life, adding so much to the accompaniment and energy and spirit found in these songs. Rhythms are sharp, syncopation flows, dynamics are well-played and support -counter melodies are tight and effective. At some point, smoke I'm sure was coming out of the recording studio on some songs. Melodies played  were hauntingly beautiful in the more poignant songs. Kudos to the studio musicians!!

Micah Stampley and the song writing team of Micah and his talented wife, Heidi, have paired the perfect music vehicles for each spiritual message presented in each cut on the album. Well-written, memorable lyrical messages bring home to the listener spiritual themes which encourage the listener to celebrate, worship and praise our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and seek a relationship with Him.

There are songs of praise and thanksgiving, songs which extol the great qualities and characteristics of our Lord,  and heartfelt prayer anthems, exploring our need of Him (FERVENT PRAYER), and what it would feel like not to have a relationship with the Lord; Emptyness (NEVER LET YOU GO).  Other songs encourage the listener to seek the Lord in worship in all circumstances and to walk the narrow path of discipleship, living for Christ.

The resulting music offers musical gems which can inspire the listener in their faith walk, whether in meaningful prayer and worship time, a straighter walk with the Lord or even to sing with enthusiasm along with the vocals presented, perhaps dancing around the room as well while praising and worshiping the Lord.

These "songs of the Lord" offer music that has wide audience appeal, sure to bless many people, because of the high standards found in these songs. The combination of inspiring vocals and backup voices, memorable and infectious melodies and rhythms supported by solid compositions,  and compelling and uplifting lyrical themes  encourage the listener to be an enthusiastic, truly engaged worshiper, who celebrates, worships and praises our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

A FRESH WIND: The Second Sound is a MUST for anyone's Christian music collection, offering high quality / inspirational music which is not only "outside the Christian music genre box," but is also refreshingly creative, most enjoyable and a delightful tool to help keep the listener focused on the Lord.

A closer look at the Compositions / Spiritual Themes .....

Songs of Praise and Thanksgiving for who He is in our lives...

* * * * + + MARVELOUS - Theme: The Lord is worthy of our praise, our gratitude and our worship.  Favorite praise song of this reviewer.

Musical Notes: A high energy praise and worship song with a moving beat, propelled along by a tight ensemble sound of horns, well done electric guitar (intro jig & support counter melody), synthesizer / keyboard and great drum work, which add a fire and spirit to the song which is infectious, and sticks in one's memory. Musical accompaniment  provides great support to equally energetic lead vocals and choral support.  A great musical transitional segue at the end flows right into the next worship song, SOVEREIGN GOD.

Lyrical Sample: "When I think on redeeming grace / And the wonder of You / Your glorious power displayed on me / I long to behold Your beautiful face / And to worship at Your throne / That is my strive / Where I belong //
Chorus: Oh, Marvelous are You / Oh, Marvelous are You / Oh, Marvelous are You / Oh, Marvelous are You." //

VAMP: You're marvelous! / You're marvelous / You're marvelous....

* * * * +  SOVEREIGN GOD - Theme: The Lord is in control, HE is true and loving and covers us with grace.

Musical Notes: Calmer than MARVELOUS, but still in a joyous, grateful mood, which leaves the listener feeling gratitude and thanksgiving toward the Lord. Lovely yet peppy melody, with the tight sound of the horns, piano, guitar, drums, with some well-done key modulations.

Bridge: REJOICING ALWAYS, FOREVER GIVING YOU PRAISE TO YOU HOLY FATHER , We'll give you thanks to your name!

VAMP:Who are you gonna lift up? (Jesus) ...

The wonderful attributes which the Lord offers seekers and believers, which are reasons for our worship of Him, out of love and gratitude and thanksgiving...

* * * * + + UNFAILING LOVE - Theme: Jesus is our Savior and Redeemer - John 3:16

Musical Notes: Beautiful, poignant piano / organ ballad, with universal appeal, featuring a glorious melody, poignant, expressive vocals, lovely harmonic voices in the choral backup, and the usual great dynamics. Great vocal slide from one octave  to another by Micah is quite impressive!  Favorite song of this reviewer.

Lyrical Sample: "I see You hanging there / I see Your nail pierced hands / For me / You paid the price for me / I see Your wounded side / I hear your lonely cries / For  me / You paid the price for me // Chorus: It was unfailing love / Grace by Your blood / Pour over me / Till all I see / Is Your unfailing love." / /

BECAUSE YOU LOVE ME Reprise - Theme: We love because God first loved us. 1 John 4:19

Musical Notes: Perfect reprise  for UNFAILING LOVE - done in the, dynamic, Gospel style.

Lyrical Sample:"Because you love me / I'll always love you" //

* * * * + + YOU ARE LORD - Theme: Jesus alone is Lord.

Musical Notes:  A lovely, piano-based, worship prayer anthem, with a memorable tempo and melody, an interesting mix of contemporary Christian and Gospel, with the customary terrific dynamics, which build beautifully to the end. Begins softly with a ensemble of piano, flute, and vocals.  Strings are added in the second verse. vocals build in chorus with beautiful harmony. By the third verse, sound is pumping, and the spirit is flowing!  Love the chorus! Full band is playing with energy, creating a powerful worship anthem. Strong favorite of this reviewer.

Lyrical Sample: "Oh Lord, You are my dwelling place / In You I will abide / You are my strength / In You I put my trust / And to You I give my life // Chorus: You are Lord; Lord of all / King of kings; yes You are / You are Lord; Lord of all / King of kings; Mighty God."//

Seeking the Lord through Worship -

Musical Notes: Piano-based worship hymn which draws the listener into a state of worship. Great dynamics, great harmonies, great emotion, equals classic Gospel!

Living for Christ -

BECAUSE YOU LOVE ME Reprise - Theme: We love because God first loved us. 1 John 4:19

Lyrical Sample:"Because you love me / I'll always love you" //

* * * * + + NO COMPROMISE - Theme: The only way to avoid the trap of worshiping something tempting, offered by our secular society. Second favorite song - refreshingly different!

Musical Notes: A rhythmically catchy, soulful, dynamic song which is infectious, memorable and a bit convicting. Syncopation and dotted notes are used brilliantly to light a fire under the melody, setting the stage for this lively anthem.  Really fine guitar playing adds zing and color! Vocals drive the spirit higher, sung with enthusiasm and soulful energy!

LOVE the VAMP - Simple lyrics paired with an infectious rhythmic melody and an inspiring, spirited performance of the vocal ensemble.

"You're gonna live this life surrendered or you're not / You gotta make a choice who you'll serve / Are you cold or hot?? You don't have a witness living any kind of way / You need to choose right now while you've still got the light of day / Make up your mind if you're gonna run or stand???"

Chorus: "You can't compromise just to fit in / You can't compromise your beliefs / And you can't compromise don't you give in / To the systems of this world." //

* * * * + + NEVER LET YOU GO - Theme: Human beings need the Lord in life.

Musical Notes: Begins strong and softens down with acoustic guitar and piano, with soft, poignant lead vocals. Haunting, memorable melody, with a light touch of strings as the song progresses.

Lyrical Sample: "My Soul will thirst / My heart will long / My gift will offer / An empty song / Without You in my life / I'll lift my voice / but I'd still be lost / For You will not hear / Unless I draw near / I need you in my life." / /

Chorus: "Can't even imagine / You not being with me / My life will be worthless / How will I be free? / So I'll never let you go." / /

* * * * + + I BELIEVE - Theme: Following Christ requires stepping out in faith, believing His promises, God is sovereign. Favorite anthem of this reviewer.

Musical Notes: Piano-based anthem, a statement of faith, which begins soft and poignantly and slowly builds in volume and intensity in both vocals and accompaniment, with interesting key changes and modulations.  Inspiring, faith-filled lead vocals and strong choral ensemble offer a powerful testimony musically, to having a living faith in God. Love the bridge!

Lyrical Sample: "Now without faith it's impossible to please You / And without faith / You can not move Your hand / And without faith I can't say to this mountain be removed / I could never see Your strength." //

* Bridge: "I believe Your word is true / I believe there's so much I can do / I believe You said it in Your Word / That settles it in the earth / That settles it in the earth." //

* * * * + CALL TO THE NATIONS - Theme: Jesus will be coming back as King of Kings, so we must make ourselves heard, depending on HIM.

Musical Notes: Moving, emotional, contemporary Gospel anthem,  featuring terrific dynamics, full harmony, written in a spirited 6/8 meter.  Musical accompaniment cooks along at a spirited pace, offering great support for the dynamic, spirited lead vocals and full choral support.

Lyrical Sample:

"We're living in an hour / When our voices must be heard / It's time for disillusion / Demonstration is what we want / By the hand of mere men / God will release His power / To shatter walls and shack up kingdoms / And in the face of uncertainty / We will not be moved / For in our weakness / He's our strength." //
Chorus: "Call to the nations / Desperation cries / Bring forth from the nations / The sound of Holy fire."//

Promise of the Lord's Return
* * * * + HOLY VISITATION - Theme: Jesus will return again as King of Kings, AND Lord of Lords.

Musical Notes:  Another a fiery, spirited, call to action gospel anthem, composed in 6/8, which makes great use of moving, driving 8th and 16th notes, playing precisely, and evenly by the entire musical ensemble in various parts of the song. Horns, keyboard, piano, electric guitar surely do cook along, propelling the excitement of the song.  Dynamic lead vocals, full harmony, with nice key segue / song style change into NO COMPROMISE.

Lyrical Sample: "Sound the Alarm / Gather the People / Gather the elders / Let the ministers wail / Take back the years / that the enemy's stolen / Lord You're coming with a holy visitation." //
Chorus: "We dance! We shout! We lift up our voice / Let your Kingdom come down / We lift up our voice / Let your kingdom come down" //The Kingdom is coming / By the will of the Father / Hallelujah to our God" //

* * * * THE KINGDOM IS COMING Reprise...The Kingdom is coming / By the will of the Father / Hallelujah to our God //

More about Micah Stampley's Music....

How do you compose? From a keyboard?  Guitar?  Do the lyrics come first? From jamming together with a co-writer or musicians?  

Micah: " Sometimes lyrics may come first or on the other hand the melody will hit me first. I have a keyboard that helps me pulled things together. My wife Heidi writes quite a bit with me; it's a part of our unity and we both enjoy it."

Are responsibilities divided?...

Micah: "Someone contributes to the lyrics, someone else creates the composition."

Anyone else you would like to mention - who helped put together this CD - A producer, etc.?

Micah:"The co-producer of the record was Grammy Award winning producer Aaron Lindsay."

Lyrics:

Any comments on the themes of the songs. Any favorites, and why? 

Micah: " The song "I Believe" is one of my favorites. My wife, Heidi wrote this song while reading a book of sermons from Smith Wigglesworth. God used him to raise over 20 people from the dead in the early 1900s in addition to countless other miracles. This song has touched so many people and is a blessing to me every time I sing it. I aspire and desire to be used by God to show His signs and wonders in the earth as well."
