Album Review: Graham Jones - The Story's Still Alive | Posted September 09, 2020
What You Need To Know
With an aim to uncover the spiritual in the everyday, singer-songwriter Graham Jones puts thoughtful lyrics to gentle and memorable melodies in this worshipful offering.

What It Sounds Like
With an acoustic guitar driving the album coupled with Jones's soft vocals, the album takes a much more atmospheric approach to music than the trends of the genre currently allow. These are the kinds of songs that could easily be sonically placed in the background of a commercial or television drama. But, far from being sombre, there is a lot of joy to be had here, such is in the upbeat "I Am Here For You." "Carry Your Heart" brings in a faster pace to add variety to the album's approach, while still feeling right at home. 

Spiritual Highlights
Far from the easy worship of most in the genre, Graham Jones both encourages weary listeners ("Carry Your Heart," "The Story's Still Alive") and also challenges their preconceptions ("God Loves People Everywhere"). "I Am Here For You" and "Resurrection Song" offer examples of common themes of the genre, but done with a more thoughtful and personal execution. 

Best Song
"Resurrection Song"

For Fans Of
Jon Foreman, Andrew Peterson, Elliot

Final Word
Graham Jones is an excellent find for those looking for new acoustic/atmospheric pop the likes of Jon Foreman with the worshipful heart of Andrew Peterson. 


Check out Graham Jones on Apple Music and Spotify.
