New Music: Darius Paulk’s “This I Give” and “He Is God”
The last three years have been a whirlwind for Atlanta, GA-based, Dove and Stellar Award nominated songwriter, Darius Paulk. On August 14th, Paulk released his first digital EP, “Lyrics & Melodies”, a five-song cyber album that’s available on iTunes and other online music stores. It may surprise some that Paulk is a singer but he’s been doing it all of his life.
Those influences are evident on songs such as the majestic ballad “He is God” that’s cut from the same cloth as the best songs by Andrae Crouch and Thomas Whitfield.
“It’s a worship ballad that is dear to my heart,” he adds. “I wrote it a day after I got held up at gunpoint after the Stellar Awards last year. It kind of falls in line with the current trend.”
The up-tempo “This I Give” employs a charmingly sophisticated urban AC and smooth jazz vibe that makes it a refreshing vehicle to express the inspirational lyrics.
Check out both of the songs below and let us know what you think of each one.
