Sons of Korah
Shelter was released in November 2002 and is possibly the most reflective, even melancholic, of the Sons of Korah albums. It is a very moving album and one that has touched many people very deeply, particularly those dealing with grief and hardship.
The album was made in the wake of a two year period in which Matt Jacoby and Rod Gear were playing most gigs as a duo without the full band and the album reflects the more mellow performance that characterised that period. There is hardly any drums on this album and when the drum kit does appear it is only to create some dynamics. On Shelter Sons of Korah give heartfelt expression to some of the most beautiful moments in the psalms with sensitivity and feeling. Shelter has a very peaceful feel to it. It is one to listen to with headphones somewhere on your own. It includes Psalms 35, 1, 37 (in two parts), 127, 30, 73, 123, 128 and 51.
