Josh Garrels, Year of Jubilee
Josh Garrels does it again. If you have not already checked it out, Love & War: B-Sides & Remixes is available for free download.
This second free download album was sparked as a celebration of what was deemed a Year of Jubilee.
In ancient times, the Year of Jubilee would fall at the end of seven cycles (the 49th year), and on this year debts were forgiven, slaves were set free, property was restored to its original owner, and the land was given rest as it was a year for the people to rest from their labors as well. And in 2011, Garrels did just that. His recently released album “Love & War & The Sea In Between” was made available as a free download and all proceeds from album sales were donated to non-profits, musicians, missions and ministries.
Garrels writes in his blog, “by the end to the year we’d given away 125,000 copies of the album. We were able to give away about $40,000 of the album’s proceeds. And I’m excited to say we were not only able to survive, but in true Jubilee fashion we ended the year having paid off all of our debts! It was an exciting and fruitful year indeed!”
We are excited to share this new album with you.
And why not take some time to recap the Alive art show and the Surfers Coffee Bar grand opening from last year, where we were honored to have Josh and his amazing wife, Michelle, fly out and spend a few days with us.
Have a great weekend![vimeo]https://vimeo.com/29507111#at=0[/vimeo]
