CCMMagazine.com- New Noise

Though I doubt there are many of you reading this who have not heard/heard of Jon Foreman’s wildly successful band Switchfoot, it is time for all of you to give an ear to his solo prospects. Jon has engineered an ambitious undertaking as his first solo endeavor, namely the release of four EPs, each title for its respective season: Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer. This is softer, lighter material than you would expect from Switchfoot—lighthearted at times and quite subtle, with a wide variety of instrumentation. Clarinets, Harmonicas—and everything in between—help create an almost fairytale-like atmosphere. I have always thought Jon has an other-worldly voice. He proves it more than ever before on Fall and Winter, Spring and Summer are coming soon.

It takes about three full spins to rinse the Switchfoot expectations from your mind. After all, Jon Foreman isn’t a solo artist, but the well-known figure of a prominent band—so no excuses are necessary if you take the requisite moment(s) I did. But after the mental shift, you’ll be glad you stuck around; Foreman’s solo turns are absolutely brilliant.

The first two of four planned seasonally-titled EPs, Fall and Winter, spin largely acoustic yarns of bedroom solitude. Yet, seasonal depression never sounded this good. Foreman now has permission to dive deep into the dark places that a radio rock band (and a Christian one at that!) won’t allow, and he takes full advantage, exploring the melancholy side of his own life (“Lord, Save Me From Myself,” “Learning How To Die”) or those he sees (“Somebody’s Baby”).

Musically, Foreman stretches his unplugged wings as wide as he can, from the guzheng—a Chinese zither of sorts—on “In Love” to the slow gospel march on “I Am Still Running.” The straight-from-Scripture approach of “White As Snow” melds harmonics with popular Psalms. The haunting “My Love Goes Free” seems to utilize a piano that hasn’t been kept properly. All in all, Foreman keeps a potentially sleepy EP from being just that.

But the primary beauty of these seasons is in the lyrical confessions found in a vulnerable front man allowing you into his heart. Foreman’s delicate falsetto, especially on “My Love Goes Free,” expresses pain in ways most artists don’t even attempt to strive toward. Foreman is indeed the humble genius we believed he was, with Fall and Winter serving as some of the strongest evidence to date.

    Gentle, beautiful, peaceful music. Full of God's peace. A big plus for cello, clarinet, trumpet. Extra points for CBD - thanks for honesty and thanks for helpful hands.

    These cds are so amazing. Jon has definitely not ventured into this territory before. these songs are honest and hardhitting in a very subtle way. I can't wait to get the spring and summer eps.

    I imagine these sessions were very fulfilling for Jon, as the songs are expressive pure emotion. Dont look for any catchy pop chorus, but if you want to dig into something thoughtful, beautiful, and gritty...this might be a pleasant discovery. Simple sounds but with some unexpected arrangements that really help tell the stories and convey thoughts.

    What an honestly beautiful collection of songs. Jon brings to the plate a collect of songs from two seasons (fall and winter) and released them on one cd. (The EPs released by themselves in digital format at the start of each season.) Most of the subjects are great to chew on, and some hard to swallow.. but they all beautifully settle in your system. He's not afraid to be honest, or afraid to be himself.. but he trust us with songs that he believes in; songs that are a piece of him. You can't help but feel honored to hear a bit of what goes on inside.. There are beautifully written ballads of worship.. emotional or convicting songs... Of course, it's all very different than the type and style of music that he writes for Switchfoot. So, if you're not into rough, acoustic, "downtempo" (as he calls it) tracks, this cd isn't for you. But if you wish to be moved and challenged.. please give this cd a chance. Most of the songs are tied in with strings or an horn instrument here or there.. You'll love just hanging out, listening to the music..Some of my favorite tracks are "Lord, Save Me From Myself", "Cure For The Pain", "Somebody's Baby", "Southbound Train" and "I Am Still Running".I think it's a great privilege to finally hear something from Jon on his own. I look forward to listening to this cd over and over.. and happily await the release of teh Spring/Summer cd.
