The Music of Lindsay McCaul [Kidmin Conference 2014]

Lindsay McCaul was another artist I was introduced to at this year’s Kidmin Conference. She only performed two songs, but were top notched. Her song “One More Step” is a beautiful recounting of an earthly father’s encouragement and love.

I’ve already purchased and downloaded it, and I encourage you to get the album too. Here is the iTunes link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/one-more-step/id902720160

 

About Lindsay McCaul: Lindsay McCaul has always been keenly aware of words and their value. From her teen years pouring over the lyrics of her favorite Christian music to her college days majoring in linguistics at Moody Bible Institute to the vibrant, insightful songs she penned for her debut album, If It Leads Me Back, McCaul knows the power of words.

Rarely has an artist wielded that power with more thoughtful precision. Blessed with a caring heart and a deep intellect, McCaul has a gift for writing songs that strengthen and encourage by reminding us of God’s grace and faithfulness.

McCaul was drawn to music as a form of self-¬expression and began writing songs at an early age. “I started writing when I was 11 or 12,” she says. “I would write what I was thinking about or processing or about how the Lord was revealing himself to me. At a young age, the Lord let me do that. Writing songs was my way of figuring out ‘what does God say about this in His word?’ and ‘what is He saying about this to me?’ or ‘what is He doing in people’s lives that I am close with?’” Songwriting became the filter through which McCaul explored her relationship with God and expressed what He was revealing to her.

“In listening to [my music], I hope people take away a sense that God pursues us and longs for fellowship with us. He loves us and wants to be close to us and I think that’s something that God has graciously showed me over my years on earth. The Lord has pursued me, even when I’m unlovable and don’t want to be pursued, He still does it.”
