A sweet, gentle folk/pop voice conjures up some older influences such as the Beatles, the Birds, or Crosby, Stills, and Nash, with lyrics straight from Chris's eight Beatitudes on the Mount, from beginning to end (reminding me of Turn! Turn! Turn!). Joshua Jamez, an Alabama singer/songwriter, has a nice sound that feels remarkably pleasant in almost any environment. His voice has the tendency to waver and go flat from time to time, but it's not noticeable without a careful listen. Whether he's actually a devout Christian or simply a poet of peace and goodwill is unclear...this song will take you back to the simple origins of the 60s counterculture.
"The Beatitudes" would be an excellent theme song for Sunday morning service
I would add "The Beatitudes" to a playlist called Too Late for Woodstock
