This Huddesfield-based singer/songwriter's music hovers on the borders of light rock and pop and straddles the genres effectively. Electric guitar is prominent, perhaps a little too insistent at times, giving some songs an almost punk flavour and energy, though with lyrics that highlight wisdom rather than anger. That being said I do prefer the more acoustic songs like the title track and "All These Things". Most songs are in praise and worship vein and Lammyman's clear voice give the quieter tracks an intimate prayerfulness. Themes are varied - "Little One" assures a child of God's protection, "Beautiful" shows the writer discovering great beauty in the world after working with special needs children and "Tiny Seeds" has God urging the sinner to turn to him ("I'm not here to fight you/Merely invite you to the greatest thing there is in life"). The album doesn't come with a lyric sheet, but we are directed to a website, rather unusual in that it's a blog featuring not just the lyrics but detailed notes on the background of each song.

I agree totally. Love 'All these things' and 'Beautiful'. They are my kind of music! Beautiful is lovely to use for a time of prayer and meditation.
