Antelope Audio: Ragamuffin Soul by Carlos Whittaker

April 26, 2010 / by / 3 Comments

Antelope Audio is a chance for GCU students to review new releases in Christian rock and pop. Written by ‘Lopes for ‘Lopes. Review by Brooke Combest – Senior, Communications Carlos Whittaker was the worship pastor and creative art director at Sandals Church in Riverside, Calif., for 10 years before pursuing a recording career. His life mission is to “ignite a movement of authenticity among all generations of Christians that morphs the face of the evangelical church into a place of being real with yourself, others and God.” His music debut appeared in January with a self-titled EP. His full album, Ragamuffin Soul, will be released April 27. This alternative album is inspirational and definitely something to sing along to in the car. My favorite song is the first track, “Rain It Down.” It is a song that I could see people praising God within church. It has a great melody and is the most upbeat of all the songs. Ragamuffin Soul includes 12 songs that are mostly worship and praise songs. Whittaker’s music can bring words of encouragement on a bad day and speak truth about God’s love for us. You can find out more about Carlos and his music at […]

Antelope Audio: Eternity Invades by Vicky Beeching

April 21, 2010 / by / 3 Comments

Antelope Audio lets GCU students tune in with reviews of new releases in Christian rock and pop. Written by ‘Lopes for ‘Lopes. Review by Lisa Kershner, Nursing student Vicky Beeching was born and raised in the U.K. and has been singing worship music since she was twelve. She felt that God called her to come to the United States to share her music and spread God’s word. She just released a new album April 6, 2010 called Eternity Invades. It startes out with a song with a good beat and a catchy tune. Then the songs begin to get more intimate and much more “soft” with mostly piano being played.  My favorite song was Salvation Day. I liked it because it did a good job capturing how Jesus has saved all who believe with simple lyrics and a really good beat. Eternity Invades includes 13 Tracks; one being a bonus track titled The Wonder Of The Cross. The album as a whole delivers the message of Christ well with Beeching’s soft voice and perfectly coordinated instrumentals.  You can find out more about Vicky Beeching and her music at her website www.vickybeeching.com/blog/ or follow her on twitter at twitter.com/vickybeeching.
