The Contemporary Christian Music of The Jeff Berry Band - a review
The Jeff Berry Band is a contemporary Christian band based in North Texas. In 1995 after teaching economics and management at Baylor University where he was assistant director of the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, Jeff Berry founded CrossWind Ministries. It seems that he has now become an entrepreneur for the Kingdom with his multifaceted ministry organization that is comprised of Jeff Berry Worship Ministry, Curiously Strong Music Publishing, Stonewater Sound production, Green Room Studios and Reality Weekends, and intensive discipleship weekend for youth.
I’ve been listening to the band’s new CD, entitled “All That’s Left of Us.” It has been keeping me company and lifting my spirits during my 45-minute drive to and from work. The lyrics of the tunes are Scripture based and prayerful. As I sing along, I am repeatedly reminded of God’s promises and His care, so I arrive at my destination cheerful, strong, and ready to meet the next 8 – 10 hours.
The title of the CD come from the lyrics of one of the songs, “Fade.”
“let the darkness fade away
let the night return to day
till all that’s left of us is You.”
Another of my favorite selections, ”You Have Spoken” proclaims:
“Speak my name an I will listen
Write Your truth upon my heart
Burn my lips with Your words
And I will sing because Your love has spoken freedom over us…”
It’s this sincere feeling that I get from all of the songs on the CD.
I consider the true worship music and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes to sing along and is not averse to a little toe tapping to the beat.
