Chip Prior, Livelong Day
Odd Mann Out Music
Before she started this summer of retooling of her PriorHouse blog, my friend Whyvette dropped me a package by U.S. Post that included the new CD by her husband, Chip Prior.
She wondered to me if his music would be too Christian for my liking.
Livelong Day is indeed full of praise and worship.
But its 10 songs rock in a style that speaks to my ears.
Prior’s guitar work refreshes, an electric charge in the opening cut There’s No Other and an acoustic embrace in Lingering Dawn.
It chimes in Leaning into You and soothes in One Thirty Nine.
The bright, bubbly start of Ignite had me thinking of vintage Three Dog Night, nodding back to the 1970s.
Now and Forever snagged me with its big beat.
And I do believe that the cool backup voice in the closing cut, Take My Life (You’re Worthy To) shines from my friend, Whyvette.
The messages are spiritual, from the heart of a believer.
I like it, this Livelong Day. Yes, I do.
