What You Need To Know Christian pop artist Jonny Diaz recently released his Hear That Story EP, a refreshing compilation of songs God has laid on his heart. An EP that reflects the simple joy and hope of a life lived following Jesus.
What It Sounds Like Of note on this EP is Jonny's pop music sensibility (I've Got It All," "Hear That Story") with hints of folk and country ("Heaven Someday") that can appeal to fans across genres. "Your Love Feels Like Home" has the nostalgic feel of a classic crooner that meets old school country ballad.
The production and vibe of each song compliment the lyrics' messages, making them even more engaging and easy to connect with. What shines most on this EP, though, is the depth of themes in the lyrics and variety of topics covered, ranging from acknowledging God's blessing, gratefulness for His love, the power of testimony, and the hope of heaven.
Spiritual/Lyrical Highlights "Meet Jesus" is a significant song on the album. It carries a message that both believers and non-believers need to hear. In the song, Jonny honestly acknowledges the confusion about Jesus and the distance some people feel from the faith, often caused by the well-intentioned actions Christians make that miss the mark.
The humility not to sweep those things under the rug makes the song inviting. Even more, the call in the lyrics for people to meet Jesus personally, learn what He's really like, and open their hearts to a relationship with Him makes it even more compelling. God can easily use this song to bring healing to many people.
Best Song On The Record "Loves Me Most" stands out as the best song. It's fun to listen to and it captures, in a fresh way, the timeless message of God's unfailing love for us—even when He fully knows our weaknesses.
Final Word After listening to this EP, you'll remember the impact that God's love for you has on every part of your life. Sometimes, you need to be reminded that your relationship with Him is part of what makes your faith so powerful. Hear That Story EP is one good reminder.
