About this Event
In the landscape of Christian music there are very few who are willing to sing the details of their actual lives, the supposed unseemly realities which prove that faith is not meant to be a cure for our human-ness. Andy Squyres is an artist who is planted fearlessly at the intersection of Christ-hauntedness and artistic clarity. Following in the songwriting tradition of artists like Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave, Squyres refuses to deal in contemporary Christian aesthetics but rather has chosen to unabashedly reveal the glory of what it means to be alive as a believer in the Age of Doubt.
In 2021 he released the album Poet Priest which Brett McCracken of The Gospel Coalition named the album of the year. "If people claim Christian music is all schmaltz that sugarcoats reality, they haven’t listened to Andy Squyres. The Charlotte-based (by way of California) singer-songwriter makes beautiful, brutal music that wrestles with grief, pain, and the struggles of faith."
In the past two years Squyres has also released two books, Poet Priest Vol.1 and Vol.2 respectively. They are each compilations of essays about being content with living a small life.
This event is a house show hosted by John Olthoff. It is a backyard setting so please bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on.
