New Music Preview: "So Kind"

Written by Terry DeBoer on . Posted in Local

beal235Singer, songwriter and worship leader Dwight Beal is doing things a little differently on his first ever solo project.

After decades of self-producing music with long time musical partner John Grooters, Beal (a worship leader at Central Wesleyan Church in Holland), yielded the producer's role on his new effort to Tommee Profitt.

Profitt, of Grand Rapids, has worked with national Christian artists such as Britt Nicole and Colton Dixon.

The musical result is "So Kind," a fruitful six-song collection of tunes ranging from pop to sacred.

Squarely in the classic pop realm are the songs "Lookin' For Love" and "Because I Know You," the latter serving up a light and bouncy keyboard that gives a hint of Billy Joel.

The most solemn portrait comes with the "Hymn of St. Patrick," the classic lyric set in sparse keyboard and close vocal harmony which then builds to a choral sound backed with strings.

The praise-filled song "So Kind" reveals God as the one who "took me to the edge of the earth; showed me my hope, my life, my worth."

There are words of confession in "Truth For A Lie," which turns on a verse in the book of Romans. And don't overlook the gospel-infused "Toward The Battle Line."

Beal debuts the songs - and the stories of how they came to be – in a CD release concert at 7 p.m. Thurs. Aug. 6 at Knickerbocker Theatre, 86 E. 8th St. in downtown Holland. Admission is $5.
