SANDRA MCCRACKEN, April 12, Friday, 8 pm. $10 in advance/$12 day of show.
Nashville singer/songwriter Sandra McCracken has been entrancing listeners with her thoughtful, well-crafted music for over a decade now — even when people didn’t realize she was behind it. Responsible for songs which have also appeared on albums for Caedmon’s Call and husband Derek Webb, McCracken has traveled a long, steady road to where she is today. With Desire Like Dynamite, she has arguably released her best album yet.
Entrenched firmly in the realm of music with a message, "Desire Like Dynamite" is a poignant wrestling experience as McCracken delves into everything from what it means to be a parent to how our choices impact the world (literally) as well as the people around us. Songs like “Gridlock” talk about how change can’t be brought around while our hearts are stuck in a bad place, while “Dynamite” plays up the power of consequences and how we owe it to ourselves to be mindful of the things we think and say and do.
"Desire Like Dynamite" is a powerful release. Full of thought-provoking content, beautiful melodies and McCracken’s well-rounded vocals, this album is nothing short of fantastic.
