Red Mountain Music – All Things New

Today, Red Mountain Music releases their last, their best, and most triumphant record. The first track took my breath away….after I recovered I took a seat to listen to the rest of the album.  They (Brian, Clint, et al) have spent a lot of time, heart and mileage on this record and in honor of their beauty here is some work we’ve done to engage the words behind each track.  Cardiphonia is especially excited because we helped commission one of the songs for this record – Track 13. Psalm 126.
