Album Notes
"Nothing But The Blood" broke onto the Southern Gospel charts in October 2005 (Singing News Top 80)..


It is only very recently that I came across the music of Dave Foraker. He definitely has a story to tell, so check out his website. Foraker's style is a fusion of gospel and blues. One website I found refers to it as "Bluesified Southern Gospel." It fits! It's quite a unique combination and makes for one of the most unusual gospel recordings I've come across in a long time, but I must say it really comes together quite well.

Penned by Pop singer Seal, "GET IT TOGETHER" seems to fit right in with what Foraker is trying to say in his music and starts the recording off with it's disco feel before things move on to the upbeat, "FOCUS ON THE CROSS". With its distinct blues feel, this is exactly where Foraker's niche is. Other songs that fall into this feel are "JESUS (MY KINDA PEOPLE)", "I WANT TO BE AN ANGEL", "MISSING THE MARK", "SERVING YOU" and the final tune, "JESUS HAS RISEN".

The title song, "I THANK THE LORD", has a distinct black gospel feel to it and it too, fits Foraker like a glove as does "FROM THE TOMB HE AROSE", which falls into a similar vein.

Rendering his own distinctive rendition of the classic hymn, "NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD", Foraker creates a unique moment before moving on to the driving beat of "YOU ARE WORTHY".

If you're into listening to something totally off the wall as far Southern Gospel goes, then I recommend you check into the music of Dave Foraker. With its blues/black gospel influence, it's something totally different than the average Southern Gospel. Foraker's raspy, edgy voice fits perfectly with this style. The music tracks are pretty cool and overall quality of the recording is very good. I can't say that the cover art is eye catching, because it doesn't scream, "LISTEN TO ME!" but if you take the chance to listen to it, I think you'll find a real gem enclosed.

Dave's best CD yet.
I miss his band, True Blue, and his trademark white violin, but what a great band they assembled for this project. As great as the playing is, it doesn't overpower or overwhelm the message in the lyrics. Jesus!

Tony Johnson

Absolutely AWESOME! I've never heard Gospel sung like this!
I hadn't heard of Dave Foraker before being introduced to this CD and all I can say is INCREDIBLE! Gospel music has some of it's roots from the Blues but Dave has brought it to the forefront in this project. His style is amazing!
