Trevor Toews / Songs / It Is Jesus

In MY Opinion

Greetings, Trevor, Thank you for choosing me to review your work, I count it an honor to be included in such a task. My hat is off to you and anyone willing to step out and share their gift, talent and love of music to the public. Be it a musician, singer, song writer, actor and so-on. I myself, via 40 some years of experience in the fields, on the road, in the studio, radio, TV, video, and management, consider myself to be a seasoned musician, singer, song writer, studio-sound tech/engineer/ owner/operator, stage manager, find it sometimes hard/difficult and perhaps not even fair to sit in a seat, voicing My Opinion concerning another's creative efforts. Especially in certain genres of music I am not all that familiar with concerning very important elements that make up and meet the required standards to justify the various levels of ratings and grades. So, in saying ALL that, I will limit myself to MY Opinion concerning the quality of the work according to My ears, and the standards I have been familiarized with thru-out the years. I hold to the old - saying " Beauty Is In The EAR of The Beholder ... LOL. The sound quality of the recording over-all is very crisp and bright and clear, I really enjoyed the message in this song. Love the back-up music. Think about a music solo break to step away from vocals for a short period in future works. Vocals are smooth and natural, sort of - down to earth as they say. The mix levels let me know who was still in charge of this song. Very easy to sit back and listen to. I mean no offense in any part, I myself take all feedback and use it as a tool toward my next project. I pray you feel the same way. Either way, I say to you, keep doing what you do, keep kicking and enjoying what you do. I tell folks all the time for many years. When it stops being FUN, then it's time to stop, and stand back and think about what we are doing, why we are doing it, how we are doing it, what we and others are getting out it. Is it what we want, and how we want it. IF NOT. what are willing to do from there? Thank you again for asking MY OPINION. Johnny

It Is Jesus.

I love the banjo which is rarely heard in gospel music. I have always loved the light hearted sound of the banjo. Great lyrics and a catchy tune! I don't know the other instruments what are they Trevor? These lyrics confess He is Almighty to save and speak life and hope as a confession. That's stomping ground! Keep the songs coming, this worship is Warfare. I loved the way you wove the downs and ups of life in your lyrics. The profession of your confession is powerful to save when sung. Amen.

uplifting

catchy tune. I like the message. It grows on you as the song progresses. the banjo suits it. I can imagine it being sung on the porch of an old country house in Texas somewhere. I think the recording quality could have been better. Praise the Lord.

It is Jesus

I love this upbeat message that is based in truth.The musical track really accompanied this song quite well. Spreading the Good News is not always an easy thing to do these days but music is a very effective way to encourage and inspire others

Well done

Wonderful tune with a great message about the redemption of Christ as the Good Shepherd. Through our trials we can always rely on the one who will never fail us. Great melody line and harmonies during the chorus.

straightforward and honest praise

Trevor Toews' recording of "It Is Jesus" is just what I have come to expect - simple, straightforward, and honest praise with a distinctly rural folk feel. The band is tight. The bass and banjo work are impeccable, and the mix is well-balanced. The harmony vocal is mostly good, adding beauty to the melody line, except for a few note choices on the phrase "he is my Lord." Just clean, wholesome, old-fashioned fun.
