While eating my morning bowl of Lucky Charms on Monday I heard these words come out of the TV….”save me I’m lost, oh Lord I’ve been waiting for You. I’ll pay any cost save me from being confused.” I immediately felt the love of the Lord move through me in a whole new way. I want you to take the “soul test” as I call it now to see if new artist Carolina Liar and their song “Show Me What I’m Looking For” makes your heart skip a beat.
But, before you go take the test to this song you need to get to know a few things about lead singer Chad Wolf who is from South Carolina and his band mates who hail from Sweden. Chad knew that if he was going to make it in the music industry and for his songs to be heard, he would need to grab his guitar, board a plane and head to Los Angeles.
Once there, Chad had to make ends meet by holding down a string of odd jobs working as an extra on a Celine Dion video, cleaning toilets in exchange for studio time but eventually landed an internship with renowned songwriter Diane Warren. It was then that Chad honed his own writing chops while anxiously absorbing any and all advice that Diane had to offer.
The affable Chad eventually networked his way to a job at a small label, and through new relationships in the industry, found himself house-sitting for a friend of famed Swedish producer Max Martin. Chad’s date with his destiny had finally arrived. Fast forward to 2008. Carolina Liar’s debut album “Coming To Terms” is released to much acclaim and Carolina Liar’s fan base grows rapidly while the profile of the band rises.
Now, I can’t claim to know where Chad is in his walk with the Lord or if he even has one. But, I can tell you after you listen to “Show Me What I’m Looking For” you’ll give this song a high score and then jump over to Google to search his back ground. It doesn’t matter to me if an artist is a Christian or not in order for their song to touch my soul. Does it matter to you?
