Christian Chart-Topper HeIsTheArtist Celebrates His Birthday And Biblical Event With Two Singles

On August 8th, the #1 international iTunes artist will release “God is on my Mind” and pop/rock radio-ready single, “Parted Waves.” August 8th is also the holiday “Ashura,” which celebrates Moses’ parting of the Red Sea.

On his birthday, August 8th, 2022, eclectic, enigmatic and experimental Christian performer, HeIsTheArtist will celebrate by releasing two new singles, “God Is On My Mind” and the radio friendly “Parted Waves.” The latter will be promoted to Christian and AC/40, Top 40 radio. August 8th is also the Islamic holiday of “Ashura,” marking Moses’ parting of the Red Sea. The song conveys Lyric videos for both songs will be making their premieres that day on HeIsTheArtist’s Youtube channel. In this digital age, many lack patience, and “God Is On My Mind” serves as reassurance that God is with you always. The song reiterates the biblical message that sometimes you have to wait on God’s greatest gifts, but those gifts are worth the wait.

“Parted Waves” conveys the message that we can ask God for His assistance during our most troubling times. It is song about letting go, and letting God into your life. The song also alludes to people running during the massive number of mass shootings in America in 2022. Much like the Israelites, who fled from the Egyptians in “The Book Of Exodus” in the Bible, the victims required God’s assistance in order to reach safety. “Parted Waves” will hit radio airwaves on July 25th.

“I’m goin, I’m goin, I’m goin, I’m goin, I’m goin, I’m goin Party’s over The devil wants me Can’t you see that I am A child of God “

See Your Shadow Produces Another Hit with Latest “Whatever On the Rocks”

Songwriters Michael Coleman and J. Richard Murray otherwise known as See Your Shadow have delivered us their latest single Whatever On The Rocks. A country song by any other means, but also something slightly different. Whatever On The Rocks is a veer from See Your Shadow‘s typical thematic approach in that it is more open to interpretation than previous pieces. The illustrious use of metaphor in this track took me a little off-guard as I was expecting a more traditional country song infused with spiritual connotations resulting in the quintessential topics See Your Shadow usually explores. Now, I may be completely off track with this interpretation, but this is my privilege of being an unbiased reviewer. I feel this track is about acceptance, about understanding that everybody has their own unique pain, and demons they are wrestling with. Whatever On The Rocks thus becomes a metaphor for giving people anything they require to ease their burdens and cope with the pain regardless of faith, conditions, or beliefs. If I am on to something here, I have found a newfound appreciation for the power of songwriting, as this theme is not so very present, but a lingering impression left long after the song has been consumed. The performance as well leads to this acceptance theme as each cadence is resolved on the downbeat with a lower vocal articulation. This method of singing lends to the emotive display of finality and less to the possibility of challenging the overall status quo. By staying true to the country music archetype of alcohol for pain relief, yet offering ambiguity to what is in the glass, See Your Shadow has in turn taken a simple archetype and turned it around into a complex emotive piece of art worthy of this discussion.

Whatever On The Rocks is a great contemporary Country song with hints of traditional elements. The production of this track is well-executed, the vocals are crisp and clear while the melodic form which takes up the majority of the instrumentation contrasts the vocals with ease. I feel this track could have used some more bottom end to help push the groove as Whatever On The Rocks plays more in the treble range of the frequency band. This is not a bad thing, as this song does possess an uplifting presence and the choice to not push a main funk helps keep the feeling and power of this track as an inspirative piece. Of course, like everything else See Your Shadow produces, the commercial aspects are always present. A hit single by any other means, perfect for Country, Middle-Of-The-Road, or Adult Contemporary radio formats. The singing, musical performance, and phrasing of the choruses give Whatever On The Rocks a sure replayable aspect, and hopefully, give you the listener a new meaning with each listen.
