Canvas of Life
I grew up a child of the 70's, a decade that was a hotbed for what we now call classic rock. Influences such as the Moody Blues, Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, as well as many solo artists of that era helped me create a style that features a touch of all of these. After playing in local bands for a few years I was introduced to finger style artists such as Leo Kottke and John Fahey. The music that I grew up with and loved is, for me, a powerful vehicle for presenting the great themes of the Christian faith. Stokonski once said, 'A painter paints his pictures on canvas, but musicians paint their pictures on silence.' 'The Canvas of Life' is a musical picture of hope, a hope that is found in Jesus Christ and Him alone. The music is classic rock and folk, the message is eternal. In my opinion, an unbeatable combination. Thank you for taking the time to read this biography. Jim Smart.
