Music of April Staples
In Blue Like Jazz, Donald Miller writes, “[Jazz music] is very hard to put on paper; it is so much more a language of the soul. It is as if the soul is saying something, something about freedom. I think Christian spirituality is like jazz music” (p. 239).
April’s folk-jazz “spiritual songs” and renditions of psalms convey a cry of the redeemed soul freely offered to God in response to His incredible, unchanging love. We hope you’ll find yourself delighting in the Lord n deeply fresh ways as you listen to her music.
