Jon Foreman - Fall mp3 album
After a decade pioneering Switchfoot's multi-platinum crossover success from Christian novelty act to arena headliners, Jon Foreman put out a set of four EPs titled and themed after the seasons. Each was six songs long, and after being released one at a time, they were later packaged as pairs. Fall and Winter thus became the first set. Foreman's rock credentials were a mile long by this point, so he made it clear that the only reason he put out an extensive solo collection was that the material fit "outside the Switchfoot aesthetic
Fall is the first EP released by Jon Foreman, frontman of the San Diego rock band Switchfoot. com on November 27, 2007.
Foreman brings his considerable songwriting talents next to a solo acoustic project, a series of four six-song EPs entitled Fire, Water, Air and Ear - wait, wrong Southern California artist. Each disc differs slightly from another in mood – . Fall and Winter are generally more melancholy while Spring and Summer are naturally more upbeat – but the instrumentation and arrangements here are simple and don’t vary much from disc to disc. It’s Foreman’s vocals, it’s Foreman’s guitar (or piano on a few tracks), and usually one, maybe two accompaniments (the horn and harmonica get a workout on Fall, cello or simple percussion do likewise for Winter).
Jon Foreman: Fall and Winter EPs Posted March 24, 2010 Good acoustic CD! Great to listen to when you just want to chill and be mellow (and happy!). Jon writes his personal thoughts and feelings into the lyrics of each song. I hope that the switchfoot album coming out later this year is up to switchfoot standards and not what jon foreman has done with these albums.
This solo album is no exception (and no one is surprised). I love stripped down acoustic folk music that really says something and is not full of cliche. And this album satisfies in every way. The lyrics are honest, beautiful, and the most overtly Christian lyrics we have heard from Foreman in a while. The only complaint I could really think of is that it would have been easier if the CD would have just come on one disc instead of two (and on the back of the CD case, he could have written "Fall" in front of the first six songs and "Winter" in front of the last six songs.
