RADIO FRIEND PHIL – Greetings! Welcome to this week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup. (New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.)
Singer/songwriter, and worship leader, Laura Story, was my guest this week, on New Tunes at 9. Laura, who is expecting twins in early October, took some time to talk about motherhood, music, and her role as worship leader at Perimeter Church, Atlanta.
Laura Story is a gentle, reverent songwriter; her signature song “Blessings” has resonated with many people, especially those who have struggled with severe illnessnes. Recently, a fan posted on Laura’s facebook page: “I listen to your music while I get dressed in the morning; your music lifts me up every time I listen to it.” (“Blessings” is found on her second, self-titled project.)
The latest record from Laura Story is “God of Every Story”; it includes the first two singles: “Who Is Like Our God” and “O Love of God,” the latter of which includes the lyrics, “O Love of God, strong and true, in my barren soul, a river running through. O love of God swift and straight, you have washed away my sin and left no trace.” Here’s what Laura had to say about the song: http://wjtl.com/listen/wjtl-casts/
