New Kevin Max EP SERVE SOMEBODY drops July 7th on Gotee Records

From the moment that DC Talk member/former-Audio-Adrenaline-frontman/ever-evolving-solo-artist/poet/writer Kevin Max leaked the demo for his cover of Larry Norman’s “Righteous Rocker” on his Soundcloud page, my interest and enthusiasm for the upcoming cover project SERVE SOMEBODY skyrocketed! With fuzzy bass, thick, crunchy guitar, and production assistance in the able hands of Nashville rock music star handyman John Mark Painter, the track breaths and grooves with heavy classic rock strides that grabbed me immediately from the first listen and haven’t let go.

Max then leaked another demo version through Soundcloud that fully affirmed and solidified the high level of anticipation sparked by “Righteous Rocker.” The second being a cover of Bob Dylan’s 1979 classic, “Gotta Serve Somebody,” again flaunting a spot-on classic blues rock vibe that fits the song like a well-worn, but, form-fitting leather biker’s boot. “Gotta Serve Somebody,” also features soulful, textured layers background vocals provided by Painter’s wife and longtime musical partner, Fleming McWilliams.

The first impression of this yet-to-be-released covers project, based on these two unfinished songs, is resoundingly positive and I expect that the other tracks that will be included on the EP will not fail to satisfy, either.

The EP is scheduled for release on July 7 from Gotee Records.servesomebody

Being the Hands and Feet – A guest commentary on an experience at the Hands & Feet Project

So, I was Googling for articles and news about Haiti, investing in hope there, and the Hands & Feet Project, when I came across this article. It didn’t look like one I’d clicked on before, so, I thought I’d check it out. It didn’t take long after that click, though, to realize that it is the one I helped write a couple years ago with my mission teammate Danny Castagna about our last trip. Ha! 😉

One of our favorite parts of decentchristiantalk.com is being able to talk about issues that matter. And one of those issues is poverty. We believe that taking care of the world’s orphans should be something the church should be a part of. And one of the organizations that does that is the Hands & Feet Project. I asked some friends of mine to share a recent experience when they visited the H&F Project this past summer. Please don’t just read this. PLEASE VISIT haitimade.com and support this great cause. You can find all sorts of Christmas gift ideas here all while supporting the H&F Project.
