Chris Quilala/Split the Sky/Jesus Culture Music|
The first solo album for popular Jesus Culture vocalist and musician Chris Quilala, this album brings together the lyrics and passion JC is known for with a “twist” – the addition of synth pop sounds and effects. Overall the entire project is very mellow and he is in no rush to start or end songs so there are long intros and outros. If you like “Active Child”or Elliott Moss, then this album is for you. Fave tracks: 1, 2, 3, 4. NO FCCs.
