On beat

Music shapes culture. What so many listen to on mainstream radio and watch on YouTube is a sober reflection of the times that we live in. What On Beat will look to do is encourage a deeper awareness of the meaning or message of a song and how we need to be discerning about what we allow to filter in. Expect a few surprises as you read regular reviews on genres ranging from heavy metal to hip hop to alternative indie folk and jazz. There is something here that is sure to strike a chord with you. This is your blog if you have an ear for excellent sound production and a passion to see biblical truth ringing out in the medium of music.
