Check out the new song Like the Rain from Marker158. This Christian rock band is out of Frankfort Indiana and consists of three members; Steve Anderson (Percussion), Jeff Chynoweth (Bass/Vocals), and Mike Hall (Guitar/Vocals). These brothers are using “music as a means to communicate songs about want, need, hope, discovery and celebration.”
Here’s their awesome new song:
Like the Rain was co-written by Mike Hall and Jason Coffman. Mike Hall writes, “The foundational theme (of Like the Rain) is Grace, and in this song we tried to deal with three things:
- reality – that life has tough times, dry times
- honesty – facing the fact that I’m not doing this “life” as well as I could/should
- the wonderful truth – because He loves me, He chooses to bless me anyway.
“I found myself not so much living life but doing life, you know, one-foot-in-front-of-the-other just “doing” life. Knowing in my head that God blesses but my life wasn’t saying I expected Him to. I had the chorus of the song, for the most part, and while trying to come up with the lyrics for the verses of the song I actually pictured myself, staring down, hoeing my garden, complaining about the dry ground only to have rain drops begin hitting me in the back of the head.”
