Eddy Mann is a musician, songwriter, worship leader, teacher, speaker, coach, husband, and father. Eddy’s led worship for over fifteen years. As a musician and songwriter it was twenty years ago that he made the decision to offer his creative gifts to God. Since then he’s released seven CD’s and written countless songs for the church and world at large. On any weekend you can find him in a coffeehouse, in concert, at a conference, and/or leading worship.
“Dig Love” is Eddy Mann’s prequel to “The Consequence” album, but an important stepping stone that leads him down the Americana, roots rock, and singer-songwriter traditions. It’s hard for me to be objective about this work as I just love and respect this music so much.
Eddy Mann is, in my estimation, again one of those most underrated, overlooked artists of our time but I really don’t think it matters to him. Eddy has another calling, which is probably much more important to him than your ordinary ‘rock n’ roll stardom’ thing.
On “Dig Love” Eddy Mann does what he does best…songs about people, songs about situations, and songs about love, redemption, and hope. He can rock one minute and have you crying tears of poignant joy the next. Being a recent convert to the his music, I hesitate to pontificate too much on Eddy’s many musical virtues, but having listened repeatedly to “Dig Love” I can honestly say that his is music that’s impossible to dislike.
Eddy here presents a variety of moods that have makes this album one of my favorites. He offers up a zesty, seasoned stew of live and love. Or how else would you describe standout songs like, “Seize the Moment”, “You, You Make Me Feel Again”, “Love Is Splendiferous”, “I Am, I Was, And I Will Be Yours” and “There’s a Lot Of You In Me”.
This album contains a group of classic sounding songs that I can’t listen to enough. Each and every song could be mentioned as my favorite (and at various times, each is). There is no weak point; the lyrics and music are strong and the mix of Americana musical styles is seamless.
In addition, Eddy’s vocals keep getting better and better on each track. He truly tells a story musically. In other words, the arrangements are enjoyable, the musical performances are excellent, the lyrics are pure homegrown poetry. What could one want in music, more than honesty?
Eddy Mann’s music transcends the norm as it truly comes from the heart and soul of the artist himself. You can listen to what everyone else is listening to, or you can listen to great music performed by great artists. Eddy Mann is a great artist and a wonderful musician. “Dig Love” is a keeper.
