Inspirational Song of the Week
Monday – Friday, January 18 – 24,2016
“Music is soul food for me. I not only listen to it for entertainment. I immerse myself in it, splash around in it, roll in it, slurp it up. Angel is the third sonic culinary creation by South Jersey based singer songwriter Lew Doty. Newly released at the time of year when people are more angelically aware, Angel offers both soft-soothing melody and bouncy-dance-y tunes to which I can imagine celestial beings bopping and swaying along. Doty’s velvet smooth voice reminds me of one of my favorite singers: Nat King Cole. It is as if the Divine is singing through him, using him as the proverbial ‘hollow reed’.” – Edie Weinstein, The Bliss Blog, Beliefnet
Grace of God
Music and Lyrics
by Lew Doty
Lew Doty, although influenced over the years by many artists, has developed a style that is all his own. His lyrics are filled with spiritual principles, his voice ranges from angelic and tender to smoky and hard-driving. The songs he writes are often deeply contemplative, but easily transition to outrageously joyful and sometimes even humorous in their style. But the one continuous thread throughout Lew’s music is its intention. In every song he writes and in every performance he gives, Lew conveys his message of love, acceptance, allowing, peace and connectedness. As one of his fans told him, “Listening to you is better than going to church.”
“Grace of God” is an original meditation that quotes the Bhagavad Gita. Click here to follow along with the lyrics.
