My favorite music is often from independent musicians. You know… those artists on the ten-plus-year-overnight-success plan. Their songs are unique. Their voices are real and their hearts have not yet been digitally removed by industry mucky-mucks. Many are really good! However, I occasionally have a “WOW” experience! (Yes… I’m about to lay a “WOW!” on you!)
Ah-Hem! Ladies and Gentleman… please bring your attention to Mark Smeby – “Pilgrim Man!” Mark is a Nashville-based, Christian musician (and actor, writer, creative guy) with an amazing message of hope and encouragement. His first full CD project, “Pilgrim Man” releases on September 14th, 2010. (GO! GO to iTunes! Run like the wind!) This collection of original songs has a unique, affirming quality that has a very mysterious result: It makes the listener reverently hopeful! (I.e. “WOW” experience!)

I learned about Mark’s music at a corporate event where he performed. After just a couple of run-through’s of Mark’s promo-CD, I was hooked. The title track, “Pilgrim Man” dropped me like a rock. I would have sworn it was about me. So, I let him know.
Why listen to this “Smeby” dude?
Everyone I have “tuned-in” to Mark’s music has felt it, but no one can exactly explain it. That is what makes “Pilgrim Man” so powerful. After a couple of times of running through the songs on the thoughtfully arranged track list, Smeby’s poignant but uncomplicated lyrics infuse one with an overwhelming feeling of hope. He is not afraid to ‘go there’ and “speak and breathe hope all over people.”
