What You Need to Know
Jacob Stillman, who goes by the moniker Stillman, hails from Little Rock, Arkansas. With a loving and supportive family and his father who was a bass player, Stillman knew from an early age he was deemed to follow a musical calling. He was only a mere 11 years old when he joined his first band, writing songs and singing pop/punk music. Stillman became hungry for Christian theology, and it was August 2011 when he gave his life to Christ, being baptized in the back of a pickup truck in a garden center parking lot. He was ready to begin his new journey and had a new reason to create again, something he never thought he would get the chance to do.
What You Need to Know
Although Stillman started his musical career with a punk style, his Whisper EP is the complete opposite of it. Whisper gives you a fresh new wave of Christian pop music. The EP shows us how Stillman wants us to feel God's presence when we listen to the six songs. Whisper is the debut album from Stillman and Stillman knows how to get the best of your emotions.
While Whisper offers an impressive six tracks, the song, "Wherever You Are," makes the biggest spiritual highlight. The song includes the lyrics, "I wanna be wherever You are, You are, I wanna be wherever You are, You are, Where the sky meets the waters, And the winds meet the corners, I wanna be there where You are, I wanna be right where You are." This track is showing that God's presence is with us wherever we go and delivers a message that God created us in his image and he will always be by our side when we are alone.
Best Song on the Album
"Draw Near" is the best song on the album. The song recites, “Even when the heartache is for real, I have never left you through the years.” This song makes you realize that God will always be by your side even through all your pain.
For the Fans of
Westover, Coby James, David Leonard
Whisper is a fantastic debut from the uprising Stillman. Make the time and listen to this EP. You will feel God’s presence with you. Stillman has stated, "These songs are my real conversations with God. I just pray they can continue to help others."
