Super stoked to share the new TobyMac CD with you!
I pushed off into the lake with my speaker instead of headphones to try out the music for the first time. I like to see if it is paddle worthy. In typical upbeat TobyMac style – I’m sure you’re not surprised to hear that it makes a great work out cadence. I had only planned to go a short loop that morning, and ended up paddling through all 13 songs.
Several of them made me think of my sons, and of their friends, and the challenges that they are walking through as high school and college aged young adults. I think the lyrics in quite a few of the songs would be great inspiration to them.
I’ve listened to the music while I was cleaning this week as well. I was in a quiet mood, and the peppy rap style was just not what I was looking for that day. Then today, while I was putting away groceries and making dinner, it was the perfect choice to help me up my step after a long day. So – if you are in the 40+ stage of life, realize you might need to be in a moving forward peppy mood to really get the most of TobyMac. Ha.
I am giving away one copy of the This is Not a Test CD to a person who comments on this blog!
Toby McKeehan(known professionally as TobyMac) is a husband, father, performer, songwriter, producer, and businessman. Growing up in the northern Virginia suburbs adjacent to Washington D.C. helped instill his love for rap music. While attending Liberty University during the mid 80s, Toby met Michael Tait and Kevin Max Smith and these three friends formed the Grammy winning, platinum selling group dc Talk. Toby began his solo career in 1999 with his first solo album, Momentum, releasing in 2001. Momentum has been followed by four additional studio albums, Welcome to Diverse City (2004), Portable Sounds (2007), Tonight(2010), and Eye On It (2012), along with his first live album, Alive and Transported (2008). This Is Not A Test is his 6th studio album to be released. Starting with dc Talk, and then going solo when the group disbanded, Toby still clings to such rootsy notions as hard work, persistence, patience, and – perhaps most relevant of all – the power of music, which he insists is still what keeps him going. “It’s the truth,” he says. “I still believe that a song can penetrate a heart. I believe God can use a song to open someone’s mind and heart.”
