Jordan Page Listens to God

Religious 3 Comments

I saw this guy last night at Porcfest. (Note the video below is from last year.) He was awesome. It was one of the most memorable musical performances I have ever seen.

What was really neat was his last song (I think) was the update or part two to the above. And he said something like he was dreaming and heard these amazing lyrics in his head, and had his wife start typing it before he lost them.

Now at this point in the night–he’d been playing for at least an hour–this particular crowd thinks he is The Man. So even though there were probably a lot of atheists in the crowd, Page got away with telling them that he felt God was telling him what he needed to tell people at this time.

I realize this may sound corny but if you were there, you would know it was very earnest.

    Regardless of whether or not the beliefs of religious people are true, there is no denying the fact that they can inspire people to create stunningly creative and emotionally and intellectually moving works in music, architecture, painting, sculpture, and poetry.

    JS Bach wrote some of the most moving pieces of baroque and organ music ever with his belief of God, and singer Robert Johnson made some of the most influential blues music ever with his belief that he sold his soul to the Devil.
