It's not about seeing his name in lights or the attention he's getting for David Glenn though. It's all about Jesus. In a press release, he explained by saying, "First and foremost, my identity is in Christ. My goal is to simply inspire a spirit of worship and be someone who is encouraging in other people's lives. My goal is to do that in a creative and culturally relevant way, but at the end of the day, I want to put my guitar down and feel like what I contributed truly helped others worship the Lord." This honesty, combined with his talent and passion for sharing the gospel is what allowed him to raise over $14,000 in 30 days through Kickstarter to record this project.
After hearing Relentless, I strongly suspect that David Glenn is going to be hearing his name mentioned a whole lot more. While each of the 14 songs on the project have a different feel, overall, the theme/purpose is to present Jesus as a Savior we can all reach, regardless of where we are in our own walks. From the feel-good rockers like "Every Good and Perfect Gift" to the driving "Great King" that points us to the throne and reminds us that God is all we ever need, there is not a single moment on this album that isn't 100% about Jesus.
If you are a fan of Chris Tomlin, Hillsong, Passion or SONICFLOOd, you will most certainly enjoy David Glenn. His music makes you want to rejoice and celebrate what a wonderful God we have. My only problem with Relentless was that I couldn't easily decided which version of "Great King" I liked the most. In the end, the acoustic version won out. David with nothing more than his guitar is pure magic and the scaled-down version showcases just how gifted he is.
