Artist:  Paul Montgomery
Single:  “This Time I Will”
Review by:  Justin Kreitzer

Rising contemporary Christian recording artist Paul Montgomery has just self released his debut single “This Time I Will”.  As a worship leader at his church, Montgomery uses his deft musicianship and songwriting ability to glorify God and to spread the message of the Gospel.  But that wasn’t always the case.  Years ago, before Paul was saved he moved from northern New York to Los Angeles seeking stardom in the rock scene and he gained great success but even with that, he was still lacking something internally.  And so with renewed purpose and a new lease on life, he has written the infectious yet reverent single, “This Time I Will”, as an inspiring and engaging song to remind you to center yourself once again on Christ if you have lost your focus on the cross.           
Sounding like a musical cousin to Matchbox 20, the uplifting single features a bouncy rhythm created by a crunchy, staccato guitar riff and is highlighted by a melodic classic rock inspired guitar solo.  Paul’s voice is smooth and confident yet with a slight curl of the lip for a rock-and- roll edge, and is boosted by beautiful background vocals that echo a response on the catchy, sing along chorus.  His unique style, shaped by those experiences in the L.A. rock clubs gives him a sharper edge to his sound than what has become the lighter standard for Christian radio fare.       
Paul Montgomery’s debut single “This Time I Will” would fit right in on the playlist of any contemporary Christian radio station and has the versatility to be played as praise and worship during church service.  And more importantly, he is able to share his faith and serve his mission of spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ through his music.  Job well done!

I have a personal interest in this subject matter and feel the need to express it and explore it. PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) is a serious matter. I have not returned from war, but I have deep love for someone who has. There is help from the VA and other programs as well.

 I saw a young man go off to war with one face and witnessed another opon return. I can understand the trauma one must experience war without having to live it. The things described from this individual has certainly added to my understanding. How he was treated upon release is unacceptable and unjust. I really cannot go into the details for his protection. Just that a war and all it's components can make a mess of an individual. Then they have to come home and find a job. And we all know the job market today. Another piece of understanding is that he did enlist on his own and could know the consequences of a life chosen right? wrong! Before enlistment you can't possibly know the reality of what is said to you face to face by any recruiter or instructor. You are told of war, but you just can't know until you're there. The desire to defend this great nation far outweighs what is described beforehand. A young person might not get what is described until it's in front of you. And i believe it is noble, brave and commended to serve and protect this great nation of ours. I did for four years, but in peace time.

If you know anyone returning from war, understand the issues. There is help. Pray for our servicemen and women serving now. And pray for the ones that have returned. There is so much to talk about but i wanted to keep this somewhat short. I just see it and have the need to talk about it. I know that God is able. There is no problem too great. The Lord must be included. These veterans have laid their life bare and we should do anything to return life to them. Even putting their name at the top of the job pile! Thank you to all those serving or have served in the United states of America!

Freedom in music

I first need to acknowledge the new year and hope to find many blessings bestowed to all in it.
May your dreams, goals and daily walk with God be closer and fulfilling in 2012.
It is fact that in many aspects of life and in our social and political circles, we have lost many
freedoms, events and even Godly things due to a lack of stepping up to what we believe is right
and true. We allow a few to dictate to all the rest of us what is acceptable in our society. And taking God out of the equation certainly will not help our needs. Although with tags of explicit lyrics (and rightfully so), music still remains one of our greatest forms of expression. The freedom in music allows the artist to openly express and convey just about anything that he/she is feeling and allows the listener to openly receive it. Music can be taken to the streets, the halls and the arena's with a collection of believers and responders to act, sing, or even misuse the freedom of music. What a powerful tool to still have in our grasp. In my opinion, democracy and freedom of music means that every musician has the right to offer his/her music and every audience has the right to listen . And no one has the right to ban anyone from the rights thereof.
I'll go even further into the freedom of music. The internet. The internet now offers a great deal of wealth to the listener and the artist in terms of how much money is spent. In past times, big companies and media ruled the airwaves and ground-ways to get music to the listener. Now music can be offered and received without the assistance of  big companies by way of the Mp3. I should know. As a musician these very tools from the internet are here for the promoting of my music as well at Music is more in the hands of the artist and listener. Right where it should be. Now of course it's the large companies that can push music to an entirely different level, but we the people have a good hand in it now thanks to the power of the internet and music. Even poorer countries can now enjoy the power and freedom of music more that ever!
I believe the internet is empowering musicians, audiences, democracy and freedom of music. Now the time is here for all musicians to offer their music on the internet and finally the people decide what will or will not be listened to. Now that's freedom!
