Music: Graham Kendrick releases salvation songs




Graham Kendrick has released his third new song of 2023, and this time it’s personal. In Salvation Songs, Graham recollects memories of his father as the young pastor of a small village Chapel.

Graham recalls: “I remember it was not unusual for our living room to be crammed after the evening service. The upright piano that sat against the wall would be pulled into the middle of the room. Young and old would crowd around it and begin to call out songs they wanted to sing. Dad would flex his fingers, and then off he’d go, playing arpeggios up and down the keyboard in the popular style of the day, the room filling with voices and harmonies. It was joyful, it was heartfelt, it was fun, and all the songs were variations of one story, old but ever new; Salvation Songs.”

After his father passed away, Graham wrote this song for him, and with his two brothers singing harmonies, they sang it at his Thanksgiving Service. The cover artwork is a photo of one of those evenings, and includes a young Graham and his family relishing the moment.

Salvation Songs is now available on all major streaming platforms.
