Kari Jobe’s Musical Styling Finds a Home
The contemporary Christian music world is rapidly falling in love with the music of worship leader and artist, Kari Jobe. Though often compared to fellow artists, Christy Nockels and Sara Groves because of musical styling, Jobe has a sound all her own. Her passion to encourage people can be heard in every word she sings.
“I remember hearing a worship song that applied perfectly to a family that I knew and I knew that I wanted to write songs like that, for hurting people, songs that someone could speak to the Lord when they can’t find the words,” she said.
In the midst of singing on the very popular Winter Jam Tour and serving as worship pastor at her church in Southlake, Texas, Jobe has still found time to record and release her highly anticipated sophomore album, Where I Find You.
“After singing about the importance of making time for intimate worship on my first album, I wanted to take the next step on Where I Find You,” she explained. “These songs come from such an honest place of praising God for what he’s done — and what he’s continuing to do in our lives — because of his grace and goodness.”
Jobe’s songs warmly express God’s unwavering love. Her music is great to listen to anytime but especially when you need that extra encouragement to know you can make it through your struggles by relying on God.
“That’s the reason I’m doing what I’m doing at this specific moment — to see God’s name lifted high, to encourage the hurt and the broken and to remind everyone to draw close to him because he really, truly does care about each and every one of his children,” she concluded.
Jobe’s work has been recognized by her peers in the music industry as well. Recently she won two Dove Awards for Special Event Album of the Year and Spanish Language album and was nominated for New Artist of the Year.
Produced by Ed Cash and Matt Bronleewe Where I Find You, which includes the new hit radio single “We Are,” is a clarion call for listeners to experience God’s presence to the fullest.
The album reached number one on iTunes upon release and debuted at number 75 on the Canadian Albums Chart.
Where I Find You is on sale now at local Christian music stores. To learn more about Jobe’s and her music check out her website at www.karijobe. com. And, for more “Buzz” on the latest in Christian conte mporary music dial up Christian 107.3 on your radio or online at www.christian107.com.
