Alternate Arrangements…

While sitting in ‘Sweet Tomatoes’ with Ryan, Jason, Matt Maher and Kenny Butler, earlier this week, the dialogue was started about songs we think could work acousticly. We then talked about songs that really maybe couldn’t be changed from their original format. We all had a few thoughts and then the legendary Matt Maher (if you don’t know who Matt is…he wrote the song ‘Your Grace is Enough’…no Chris Tomlin didn’t write that…the genius Matt Maher did…give him credit!) just mentioned that the Hillsong United tune ‘Break Free’ was one of those songs.

Well, later in the week we just could not refuse the chance to prove Matt Maher wrong. So we did and here’s what we came up with for it. Also, don’t forget to watch the bonus video of the acoustic version of ‘Your Grace is Enough’. I’ll just say in advance, you won’t be able to ‘get enough’ of this goodness. Let me know what you thought…leave a comment! 🙂

    “Break Free” rearranged at last. I have waited so long. The harmonies are tight, the quick blasts of dialogue nothing short of absurd. “Who would have thought God would give his one and only son? (I didn’t at first)” Either insightful and reflective or humorously blasphemous. This is disgustingly charming.

    O and to Ryan Guard. They are the Dove Awards and Brayline is going to win one for these arrangements no doubt.

  14. You guys are a riot! Definitely more cowbell.

  15. So most of the comments that I was going to type have been posted, I’ll still put a few gems in though….was this at 2am after several chai tea latte’s? Can I get in on the 4th part harmony b/c your 3 part was ty-aight! “In the key of A sometimes G” , “I don’t think you remember so I’m gonna sing it again….remember your people”

    Pure. Absolute. Beauty. Thanks for posting!

    And on the real…..I actually disagree, I think you could make Break Free an awesome acoustic song!

  16. So is this what “staff” does as “work” 😀 hahaha I loved it! I especially love brian and j’s interpretive dances on the sides. You guys should bring those songs and that beautiful worshipful element to main stage… I know we are goign to try to pull it off in youth… hahaha
