Musically talented pastor, Matt Speaks, hops behind the organ and offers up positive guidance on his self-produced single, The Fruit of Lips” –
Matt Speaks is a recording artist located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He’s also a father, husband and a local church pastor. When he finds time from those duties however, you can find him sitting behind a desk with Propellerhead’s Reason locked and loaded. After a brief personal hiatus with music, he felt the spirit of the father move him back into things. This is where he began crafting his first single, “The Fruit of Lips”.
Speaks went on to say, “When I began working on my first single, I struggled with what to talk about. What did I have to really offer? It was in the midst of this struggle that The Fruit of Lips was born. “Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name” (Heb 13:15). It’s my pleasure to share this song with you and my prayer it would be edifying to you in your faith!”
Matt Speaks reminds me of a Christianized version of Bon Iver in a sense. He blends a vast amount of feel good instrumentation into his productions. He does this while praising the Lord’s great name. This isn’t your mother’s church music but none the less, it’s a sound that appeals to all age groups. Check it out below.
