A marriage between the undeniable talents of poet Steve Stockman and muso Sam Hill was always likely to deliver something special. This does. Look no further than the hauntingly beautiful "Soaked In A Dearer Wine" where the arresting song hook, "Some may say it's heresy, but I believe it's true," unpacks the truth that God's grace reaches out to the wino lying in the gutter. Steve's lyrical accent is perfectly suited to deliver his cryptic, insightful poems, of winter trees by Murdoch Bay or the perplexing paradoxes of faith while Sam's warm, evocative voice and suitably stripped down accompaniments echo the themes of finding God's relentless, supernatural love in the twists and turns of ordinary life, are beautifully integrated. A little gem.
