John Waller Explosions Of Light
Released: January 25, 2019
From the first time I heard John Waller and his 2007 major label solo debut The Blessing, I could honestly tell you that he had garnered a fan for life. There was so much honesty in the lyrics and just the similarities to my own walk with Christ and life in general was downright amazing. It’s as if John had caught a glimpse of my life and the personal issues that I had faced and created songs from them. I soon found out by getting to know him, that is was his own personal conflicts and life journey that he has put into his music over the years. It comes from the fact, and he will be the first to admit this, that he’s just like the rest of us. Imperfect. Flawed. Human.
When you have access to and listen to new music as much as I have over the years, you can often times be inundated with it. Sadly though many of the songs and albums I have heard in the past fourteen years can come across as cliché and sound too much alike. That’s why John’s newest and sixth solo record Explosions of Light, will continue the trend of hitting home with listeners.
