Today is the release of Jimmy Sisco’s contribution to the 3 Song Acoustic EP series. As the singer/guitarist/songwriter for ABSOLVED and Platoon 1107, Jimmy has released some of the biggest, most aggressive music on Thumper Punk Records. For his 3 Song Acoustic EP, the music is delicate, balanced and soulful, with one track of 70s era folk and two readings of Old Testament scripture over ambient backgrounds. The first song “Son of the Wind” was written by country-western artist Jim Sisco, Sr., in 1970, and recorded by his son Jimmy in the days prior to his father’s death from cancer. Recorded from the most sincere and loving place in one’s heart, Son of the Wind is a tribute to a son’s love for his father.
Chapters One and Two of The Book of Haggai were recited from the King James Version. These songs present experimental ambient soundscapes below the sounds of Biblical text recitation. This is not Holy Scripture set to music...this is music set to Holy Scripture.
