ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Feed HIS Sheep," a collection of eight original songs, is a debut effort of Grier G.B. White. While writing and later recording the songs - engineered by musical friend, producer Martin LeMaire, G.B. recalled his missions work experience of 2005 in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Pictures taken in the area of Kananga of orphans, a homeless man, and families at nutrition centers were engrained in his brain. As White and LeMaire started recording these songs, it became evident how money from sales was to be used. All proceeds would be used to support nutrition centers in Kananga!

Three scripture passages would serve as inspiration during the recording and production process: John 21 (the whole chapter); Matthew 25:31-40; and, 1 John 3:16-18.

Please visit my site, The 25-40 Project, www.feedHISsheep25-40.com! You can email me: feedHISsheep25.40@gmail.com
- Thanks and God bless, G.B.

Musical influences from the secular world can be heard that include Steely Dan, Third World, Hall and Oates, Bob Marley, and Little Feat. "Feed HIS Sheep" features the musicianship of - among others - Ed Shockley (vinyl Shockley, The Reminders), Keith Mack (Scandal, Keith Mack), and Philly-area indie artist Cliff Hillis. Grier G.B. White considers himself blessed by so many close musician friends from the state of Delaware and by the high quality production from the hands and ears of "Marty" (Attune Studio)!

Powerful debut CD
In recent years, I've grown to appreciate the songwriting talents found within several bands that play mostly in Delaware. Recently, I was taken quite by surprise with this offering, the debut recording from Grier G.B. White entitled "Feed HIS Sheep."
"Sheep" contains eight Christian lyric songs. G.B. deems his compositions as "songs of faith and conviction." His lyrics combine beauty and passion with power. Each song has a distinctive message within the Christian faith. For those purchasing a hard copy (CD, not digitally), there’s a treat: an eight page insert booklet details lyrics with scripture references.
Musically, White, along with recording engineer, drummer/percussionist, and keyboardist Martin LeMaire, explores an incredible variety of musical genre. "Someday, Heaven" is a hybrid Latin-Motown with a touch of funk in a Bootsy Collins-like praise bridge that makes the listener want to dance while joining in singing its choruses. "Spirituals 101" is a tour-de-force of World Music, starting with a Negro spiritual "Somebody's Knockin'" in reggae form and ending with another spiritual “Guide My Feet,” played with a Southern soul feel. In between, along with multi-instrumentalist and multi-vocals arranger/singer Ken Tonge and pianist Doug James, White and LeMaire channel Blind Boys of Alabama with West African drums and romp through a snippet of “Amazing Grace” in a Dixieland jazz format. The opening track, “Word, Sent to Save,” the story of the birth of the baby Jesus and why he was born (for those who follow the Christian faith) is so unique, it causes the listener to recall how Steely Dan could almost reinvent itself in sound from one album to another. “Remember Jesus” is a beautiful hymn-like ballad, detailing events surrounding the Last Supper.
Not to be overlooked are the challenges G.B. White issues in three songs. In particular, this listener was moved by both the music - a hypnotic Middle Eastern sound meets West Coast post-hippy rock (think Spirit’s “Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus” from 1970) – and the words, based on Jesus’ message that we are to help those we find in greater need, found in his title track, “The Least of These.”
Grier G.B. White ends “Feed HIS Sheep” on a melancholic note – within his words – with the very personal “Spirits Still Live On.” Musically, this song could have been found on Hall and Oates’ “Abandoned Luncheonette” – a hint in 1973 at what could become known as neo-soul. White’s final words hopefully reflect how he feels about releasing another CD: “And my lord helps me face the future; Holy Spirit gotta a hold on me.” Let’s hope the Spirit leads him to a follow up to “Feed HIS Sheep!”

Fun and Challenging Christian Contemporary
Grier White’s recently released “Feed His Sheep: 25-40” is a departure from mainstream Christian contemporary music in its sophistication and unpredictability. It demonstrates a mastery and comfort in interweaving various musical genres that climaxes in the third track, “Spirituals 101,” where such rhythms as reggae and carnival meet the voice of Elvis.
Although focused on communicating the truths of the Christian faith, the CD is never preachy or mired in the language of scripture, which people not raised going to church might find off-putting. It is always accessible. Neither does it take itself too seriously. For example, in the last track, “Spirits Still Live On,” Grier consciously tells how the deaths of close friends affected him; yet, the piece is in rap form set over a breezy jazz accompaniment that is strangely uplifting.
My favorite songs, based on their sound alone, include the first track, “Word, Sent to Save.” (See if you can listen to it without tapping your toes or dancing?) And Someday, Heaven, which introduces a Santana-esque quality to the mix.
If you are looking for Christian contemporary music that is fun and moderately challenging, something that doesn’t settle into mindless repetitions of the same instruments, ideas, and rhythms, I would recommend “Feed His Sheep.” It is nourishing in all the best ways.
