More About Darrell Evans
Veteran musician and worship leader Darrell Evans is all about spontaneity-Spirit-led spontaneity, that is. "I love the Spirit flowing in me and creating new songs through me," says Evans. "I try to be sensitive to what He's saying throughout each moment of any concert. I want to be led by Him. I want to sing the songs He desires to hear." Between his ever-popular song "Fields of Grace," his award-winning "You Bless Me," and worship favorites like "Trading My Sorrows" and "Let the River Flow," Evans has certainly caught the attention of the Christian music industry. He has won numerous awards, in fact, including two Dove Award nominations--one for his 1997 release, "Let The River Flow," and one for his 1998 album, Freedom--as well as ASCAP's Christian song of the year in 2000 for "You Bless Me." But for Evans, the ultimate goal is not the accolades of men; it's the approval of God. Says Evans, "I believe music was created and is intended to bring glory back to God."
excellent cd that inspires a desire to pursue more of god then self. Away from the indulgancies of human nature to the the heart of god
A CD that positively glows Jun 10, 2004
I am a minister in a denomination which regards itself very highly for its biblical teaching and singing. I was raised on very solid food, and continue to delight in the meat of Reformed teaching and music with good words.
Darrell Evans is no bible teacher. There are even a few things said in these songs that I consider to be theologically naive or unhelpful.
But I find in Darrell Evans' music something that I find almost completely absent in the life of my denomination: exuberant joy. When Darrell sings a song like 'Freedom' I know that I am hearing the voice of one who revels in the freedom he has found in the Lord Jesus.
Jesus and the apostles knew all about good theology. But they also knew about joy, about living. Darrell's music has a life, an energy, a deep-seated happiness that makes it shine.
This CD glows because it recognises that praising God is a 'no-holds-barred' exercise. Darrell has also recognised what a friend of mine (a NT professor!) says: "God doesn't only send us postcards; sometimes he like to give us a kiss and hug as well."
Real Christian Music Jul 18, 2002
This is an incredible album. What I love so much about it is the fact that it's message is never watered down,and it praises our God and Lord Jesus Christ. It is a welcome departure from so called Christian artists who market their work, and write their songs as if they are trying to appeal to the world's standards. This album stays true to a Godly standard- and as Christians that is the only standard that is good enough!
Awesome! Aug 14, 2001
This CD is for the serious worshiper of God and for the serious musician! Evans guitar driven rock style should make him among one of the classic Christian musicians of our time. Just listen to the great electric guitar playing of Lincoln Brewster while Evans strums rhythmically on his acoustic guitar. And His lyrics are so intimate you feel like you are right in the presence of God. This man knows and loves his Savior! I give this CD a 10+.
Darrell Evans is in a class by himself! Dec 15, 2000
"Freedom" is one of the most solid albums I have ever listened to in my life - and I've listened to quite a few having worked in radio for nearly 10 years. In fact, I am perplexed as to why Christian radio has not picked up on this gem. Evans is perhaps one of the best songwriters in the Christian genre and this album is proof of that. From uptempo, Spirit-filled songs such as "Trading My Sorrows", "So Good To Me" and "Freedom" to stirring emotional ballads such as "You are My Portion" and "Your Love is Extravagant", Evans has something on this album for everyone. This is a must for every Christian music fan's collection. You'll have it in high rotation in your CD player!
