Learning To Sing In The Dark | Posted April 07, 2015

Like many of us, Australian singer/songwriter Nathan Tasker has seen his share of dark days. Having faced the loss of his father-in-law and twin babies in the same year, Nathan knows what it is to trust God while experiencing great sorrow and loss. Shaped by the life he has experienced, the stories told through his latest release Man On A Wire are that of joy, grief and the hope we find when those two emotions mix with Christ's redemption.
 
"Trust You In The Darkness" opens as a prelude of sorts, setting the tone for the songs to come and leading straight into the title track, which comes from a personal lesson of learning to look to Jesus in all circumstances.

The mix of contrasting emotions throughout this album sum up Nathan's last few years of life. This tension is heard between upbeat tracks "Closer" and "Rise," which talk of God's nearness in heartbreak, and slower songs of struggle "Sowing Tears" and "Nowhere To Be Found," the latter including painfully personal lyrics from his testimony such a "losing a loved one is hard enough / three pushed us over the edge."
 
God's sovereignty over all is addressed in "Whole World," while "No Good Reason" speaks of His extravagant love for His children. "All The While," a duet with worship songstress Mia Fieldes, is easily the best song featured on this album, bringing an intimate moment of worship with lyrics pulled straight from Scripture. Mia's effortlessly smooth harmonies blending beautifully with Nathan's voice. Ending on a prayerful note, "Voice I Long To Hear" is a cry from Nathan's heart for God to speak into his brokenness.
 
Closing Thoughts:
It seems the 2011 Australian Artist of The Year is starting to make a name for himself here in the U.S., and after listening to Man On A Wire, it becomes clear why. Though still finding his place in the music scene, Nathan Tasker's passionate vocals and thought-provoking lyrics are not to be overlooked. Man On A Wire proves itself to be a well-rounded effort and tells Tasker's story in a way that shares hope with listeners around the world.
