Luke Garfield - Hallowed (CCM)

Luke Garfield - Hallowed
Luke Garfield has released a Christian Contemporary Music (CCM) track called Hallowed.

Hallowed is the second single from the album The Unseen, a collection of faith-centred songs by Gold Coast songwriter and music producer Luke Garfield.

Garfield is a seasoned songwriter and producer having spent time in Nashville honing his skills recording other artists, as well as continually writing and recording new material at Banana Llama Studios, located on the Gold Coast, Australia.
 
Hallowed started musically as an improvisation during communal worship at Luke’s local church a number of years before.
 
“We were singing a well loved congregational song which has a simple but expressive chord progression. The song lends itself to free worship (improvised singing and expression) and I started to sing what became the chorus of Hallowed. I loved the melody and pacing of the phrases so I tucked it away in my memory thinking I’d like to write a song around it in the future”
“The lyric theme of the song started to take shape whilst driving down the Gold Coast motorway one afternoon. I was inspired by Michael Heiser’s book The Unseen Realm and in particular the idea that God sent Jesus to unite his estranged earthly family to Himself. When Jesus talks about the kingdom coming to earth it’s actually a call to return to our original home and position in creation as God our Father intended.”

One other unique aspect of this release is the synesthetic artwork for Hallowed. It was painted by friend and fellow artist Fear of Flight (Aaron Shipway) who has an amazing gift of seeing the music he hears. Garfield is filming a mini-documentary to explore synesthesia and the music of The Unseen album to be released later in 2022.

Garfield writes music for a wide range of genres, which includes alternative rock, indie electronic, and songs for a church setting. Hallowed has found a regular home as a live worship song in his local church for over 18 months and has been enthusiastically embraced by those who sing it.
 

Lyrics:


Verse 1.
The victory was won
To the joy of the son
Death where is your sting?
We are free, free indeed!
 
Verse 2.
The kingdom is established
Your rule will never perish
The nations can return
Loving Father you’ve called us home
 
Chorus
Your kingdom come
You will be done
Hallowed be your name
Hallowed be your name
 
Verse 3.
The victory was won
To the joy of the son
Death where is your sting?
We are free, free indeed!
 
Refrain
Holy! Holy, Holy, Holy! There is none beside you.
Oh no one like you
Holy! Holy, Holy, Holy! There is none beside you.
Oh no one like you
 
Bridge
You shall return in robes of white
Blinding light across the sky
Our bodies bruised, renewed to life.
The Kingdom comes to meet it’s bride.
You shall return in robes of white
Blinding light across the sky
Our bodies bruised, renewed to life.
The Kingdom comes to meet its bride.

Emanuel Harrold - Shine Light (Gospel)

'Shine Light,' Emanuel Harrold's new single, is a powerful and moving prayer for guidance and clarity. Written at a time when the artist's view of happiness was no longer as clear as it once was. In the words of Emanuel: 'In that thought, I ask God to shine light on me. Not for fame or popularity, but in the notion of showing me the way with clarity I should go. The actual direction I should walk into, in a practical sense.' The song's lyrics perfectly capture this sentiment, as the singer asks for God's grace and love to guide him through difficult times and to see his way forward. The repeated refrain of 'Shine light on me' is a plea for direction and understanding. But 'Shine Light' is more than just a song for those in a dark place. It is a reminder to all of us that we all need a little help and support from time to time. The lyrics remind us to pause and appreciate the beauty around us, and connect with our inner selves in order to

Amanda Nolan - Broken Pieces (CCM)

We've most likely all had times in our lives when we felt broken and shattered, as if there was no way to put the pieces back together. Amanda explains that her song is about God reshaping the broken pieces of our lives into something better than they were before. She says: 'When we feel we are a lost cause, Jesus picks us up piece by piece and makes us a masterpiece through closeness with Him. He picked up all of my broken pieces, and he can do the same for yours.' The song's lyrics beautifully express this message. Amanda sings about the broken pieces of her heart scattered on the floor and how God can use broken pieces to create something beautiful. She sings, 'I give You all my broken pieces, with You I know I can leave it. You're the God of stained glass miracles, You're making all things beautiful.'
