We Recommend - Jon Foreman, 'Fall, Winter'

Ah yes, solo ventures. Few seem to really be able to spark the same kind of impact that the brave band member's original venture can. The same is not so, however, for Switchfoot's Jon Foreman. His first solo project, the 6-song EP "Fall" is undoubtedly my favorite of his four EP's (perhaps also because it's my favorite season?), but Foreman has created a wonderful 12-song set by the pairing of the Fall and Winter EP's together into one set. Released to retail together originally last year, EMI has unfortunately decided to discontinue the set at retail (along with the Spring and Summer set) and have stores now only carry the 12-song compilation from all the four EPs, "Limbs and Branches." But still, the best way to experience these EPs are individually (which you can still get digitally online). "Winter" offers the phenomenal prayerful ballad "White As Snow." Foreman's weary and emotional vocal style injects a lot of passion into his acoustic folk songs, which cover an array of topics from relationships and self-inspection to all-out worship. So while "Fall" may be my favorite EP, to experience it along with "Winter" is a recommended approach.
