"Finder Of The Lost" - Dorothy Savage

Ok, so I've already let you know that I love the alternative sound with female vocals, so it's no surprise that my first plug would fall into the category.

Dorothy Savage has one of those voices that could fit with so many different styles of music. As a matter of fact, the Christmas Album that she just dropped has a lot of that lounge/jazz/pop sound to it.

Here however, we have a powerful ballad that expresses perfectly what it means to be found in Christ. Against the driving pulse and electric guitar riffs, Dorothy's voice cuts through and delivers this message with great clarity, expressing oh so clearly that there is hope even in what seems to be the darkest of times. That message is perfectly summed up in the key line of the chorus: "At the very moment that we're breakin' is the very moment that you breakthrough, and this is how we know we're found."

I also love how the music and the progressions are intelligent and well thought-out, which are elements that tend to get short-changed on songs with powerful messages (this is the musician in me talking.)  Without being overdone, there's enough variety and demonstration of instrumental skill in the music to really reinforce and drive home the point, which is what it's supposed to do.

I hope you enjoy "Finder Of The Lost," and stay tuned for more great music discoveries!
