This is a highly impressive seven song EP from the Texan songsmith. Following his 'Trying To Fit The Ocean In A Cup' album, Josh again demonstrates his ability to write and sing easy-on-the-ear, breezy songs with weighty words wrapped up in mellow melodies. With stand-out tracks "Before The Morning", "Sing", and "How To Fall", Wilson provides a soundtrack for life and faith showing diverse influences ranging from the Beatles to John Mayer. Josh shows considerable guitar playing skill and even occasionally calls to mind Christian guitar legend Phil Keaggy. Speaking about the record, Wilson says, "We may live in snapshot moments but those moments are not life. Life is not one point in time but all of the points in time between drawing our first and last breaths. Because we have experienced the faithfulness of God in the past we can be secure in the present and trust in the one who holds the future." Wilson has worked hard to songs that respond to the challenge to faith.
