The singer and songwriter of contemporary Christian rock music known as Corey Farlow has released his long-awaited LP album, titled, “Peaceful Shoes.” The album is a collection of soft rock songs penned by Farlow, himself, all of which are inspired by the words of the Christian Bible and the message of Jesus Christ, which Farlow understands implicitly and clearly communicates to his listeners. The music is passionate without being melodramatic, sensitive without being overly sentimental, and compassionate in ways that only spiritually minded artists seem capable of feeling.
Corey Farlow is from Tennessee. His sound on “Peaceful Shoes” is not unlike the “plugged-in” music that has often been performed in modern churches since the mid- nineties, but with a Nashville tone that never quite breaks into country western. This beautiful, masculine timbre keeps Farlow from sounding similar to other artists in the Christian genre. His songs are epic anthems, each with a crescendo that invites the music fan to lift hands and face, to sing along, and to join in the exaltation.
He names as main artistic influences such Christian acts as Third Day, Casting Crowns, Jeremy Camp, Bldg 429, and Newsong, as well as Big Daddy Weave, Chris Tomlin, and Daughtry. Various nods to these acts are found in Farlow's own music, particularly that of Casting Crowns. CC fans would do well to explore “Peaceful Shoes.”
Perhaps most importantly, however, Farlow's record seems totally, certainly genuine. More to the point, he is audibly worshipful, even through his recording. Were there ever a doubt that such a thing as a man's faith could be committed to tape, Farlow's record stands as evidence of it. It is a pure thing, and a wonderful thing to be able to have in the car, the iPod or whatnot: one's own portable worship service that is powerful, poetically written, and performed with all the musical aplomb one could ask for.
Much more could be written about the high quality of Farlow's music, but its most admirable attribute from an outside perspective is its inviolable humility. “Peaceful Shoes” is a gorgeous work of rock music that glorifies, but this resplendence is directed at the seat of heaven, not the works of man.
Corey Farlow's exquisite praise LP “Peaceful Shoes” is available online worldwide beginning spring of 2013.
