According To Austin
Excerpted from the GospelAccording2Austin.com website: These CDs are intended to be a celebration of traditional, undiluted Gospel music of all genre's -- much like the Grand Ol' Opry celebrates great Country & Western music of all types. Many of the musicians contained herein are Christian believers, some have other faiths, and some may not know what they are. They all understand they have been given a gift, and they all relished this opportunity to give it back unreservedly, in the finest Gospel tradition. Because Austin is called the "Live Music Capital of the World", there are a large number of musicians and fans who are well schooled in appreciating the diversity of great live music forms. Most of these people love great Gospel music... moving, sweaty, spiritual, soulful, gritty, broken, joyful, rockin', real, spontaneous Gospel music. As Gurf Morlix put it, "we love playing this old gospel music cause it's just so alive." The music contained on these CDs are Gospel based songs representing a broad spectrum of musical styles, each performed by a different musician or group with an Austin presence. These CDs embrace Gospel music's diversity, and extend it across the many boundaries of race, religion, genre, and geography. And in the finest Austin tradition, they are eclectic. We call it "kick-butt Gospel" because it gives folks a liftin' & the devil a kickin'. Whatever you decide to call it, Austin loves to hear it at a Gospel Brunch, or at a Sunday service. These are not intended to be "religious" CDs in the vein of typical Christian music. The artists and cuts selected intentionally represent a broad-brush of secular and church musicians from the Austin area. We only asked the musicians to play this music with all of their heart, all of their talent, and to simply pour it out honestly.
