Description

The first release I did as "Theological Musings" or "Theo." Songs were of a more religious/spiritual nature. At the time, I considered myself a "Christian Anarchist," and had read the writings of Shane Claiborne, Leo Tolstoy, and others... This little EP also includes a bonus track I did with Alex Langley titled "On Earth, As It Is In Heaven," featuring samples from NT Wright.

It sort of tells the story of my spiritual journey away from a belief in God and a return to that belief. It isn't your mainstream religion, and is, in fact, a refutation of it. I even sample quotes from atheist Christopher Hitchens. I once had this removed from a music store because of its content.

Music by me, lyrics by me. Samples from youtube vids; fair use...
