‘Edifier’ is Tyde Moore's first ever EP release, the group usually only releases singles. This EP will feature Christian Rock/Pop artist, Nathan Brumley as the featured artist. Tyde Moore always features an up and coming Christian artist on songs that they write for release, but in this case Nathan Brumley is also the co-writer.
The theme/subject of the Edifier EP is just as you would expect: edification. The EP is meant to edify listeners, lift them up, inspire them and try to encourage people to be the best they can be in Jesus.
Here's a little about each track from Tyde Moore:
The Walking Dead: Inspired by Romans 8:1 and Ephesians 2:1-5... and a little bit by the television show on AMC, but just a little. This song will have an early premiere as it was voted favorite among our friends, family and associates.
Enoch: Inspired by the 'hidden' book of Enoch, but the verses from this book used are in agreement with verses from the Bible. Example: the first verse of this song says, "Woe unto them who lay down deceit as a foundation," you can confirm that the Bible agrees with this when it says, "Thou shalt not lie". This song is a warning, but also it tells us that we can change our ways and have salvation through Jesus Christ. The song is titled "Enoch" although no mention of Enoch is made in the song, because Tyde Moore wants listeners to know where they are getting the ideas in this song from before listening. Some of the verses in the Book of Enoch are loosely quoted, but not exact. Note from Tyde Moore: "We are not endorsing the Book of Enoch, we just thought that some of the verses were unique for a song and the ones we used are in agreement with the Bible. We are not experts on The Book of Enoch, so we cannot tell you whether or not the book is true scripture or not."
Shine on Boston: Previously released as a single, this song was inspired by the brave heroes who helped in Boston and dedicated to those who were tragically affected by the Boston Marathon bombings. Seeing how people were killed and injured so terribly at this event was heart-breaking, but at the same time there was a light of love inside all of those who gave a helping hand to those in need. People could have just ran away, but they stayed to make sure that everyone could get the help that they needed... that is Boston Strong! That to us is the very spirit of what America's supposed to be, displayed in Boston on that day. This track will always be available for free, copy this link for a free copy: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/nbrum7770
Let Me Be Your Mouth: A reminder to use our mouths wisely and to share God's love and truth. This song was originally written to be the main track and was going to be called "Edifier" but we re-wrote the song altogether and took out mentions of Edifier. But that doesn't change the theme of this EP or this track. Edifier lives!
Irreplaceable: This is what God thinks of you His children, you ARE Irreplaceable... each and every one of you! This song is Tyde Moore's favorite on this EP, but our family and friends favor The Walking Dead. We got the idea for this song when thinking about how similar little kids are, but at the same time they are so different… so, when a parent loses a child, that child cannot be replaced and that is the kind of love that God has for each of us. We are all similar in many ways, and our differences although they may be few, they make each of us irreplaceable children of God. We end the EP with the thought of God singing a song to you about how special you are to Him, which seemed to be an epic thought for our Edification.
