I’ve always loved music. As a writer, it’s a necessity in my life. It inspires me, comforts me, lifts me and cries with me. Very few musicians touch the core of my soul. Elvis Presley, John Denver, Carrie Underwood and James Taylor are four singers that capture the very heart of me when I hear them sing. There is something about their voices that tug at my heartstrings. I could get lost in their voices, their music for hours and never regret a moment.
Thanks to Amy at TBNRanch, I just discovered singer and guitarist, Austin Criswell, who makes me feel the same way. I don’t know anything about this guy except that when I just heard this version of Bob Dylan’s Make You Feel My Love, my soul almost wept. Austin’s voice crawled deep within me and stays there still.
Thank you, Amy for introducing me to Austin. This is such a beautiful version of Dylan’s song. Your post came along at a vital point in my W.I.P., and the words completely echo what my David wants, but can’t say, to Charlotte. I had forgotten about this song, and if David could sing, I would give him Austin’s voice.
Hit play, close your eyes, and listen. When over, let me know what you think.
