"In these hymns I hope you find the message their writers meant to convey. It’s a great responsibility to play sacred music. I’m not much of a singer, and my guitar has always been the voice I use to praise God. The reverent arrangement and solo guitar approach is deliberate; I’d like the listener to sense the emotion of the piece, not the extravagant complexities and multiple passes of guitar. I love my Savior and His kindness to me. To Him and all those He has put into my life, I give thanks." —Ryan Tilby

Best in my library

Like probably a lot of other people I know, I have a special playlist on my iPod for Sundays, specifically. Ryan Tilby's now two albums are the only titles that cross the line from "Sunday stuff" into "everyday stuff". It's not all crazily arranged into pieces that become unrecognizable. They're simple, they're elegant, and they're beautiful. Worth every cent.
