Matthew Smith

Dsc_00421It was great to have Matthew Smith at the OBI conference on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.  If you don't know about Matthew, he is one of the main guys at Indelible Grace.  They take really old hymns (most are 200-300 years old or so) and rework or rewrite the music.  Fantastic stuff.  I've been listening to IG for 3-4 years and love it.  I've also been keeping up with Matthew's blog for some time.  He is a member of City Church in East Nashville.

While there I bought the new IG CD (their fourth) and Matthew's CD "Even When My Heart is Breaking" which is available on iTunes or you can order it on his website.

Matthew played for over an hour on Tuesday night and for 30 minutes on Tuesday morning.  I also got to spend time talking with him on Wednesday for lunch.  Really good guy who I recommend for his voice, his music, his heart, and his deep love of Jesus and the Gospel.  I have rarely heard a Christian singer who understands the Gospel so well.

You can also read about Matthew from my buddy Wes who heard Matthew in concert on Wednesday night in Lexington, KY.
