MOMENTOUS MONDAYS: Influential Artists of All Time – Week 2: Switchfoot

If you were to ask me to name one band that has successfully shaped their craft and pioneered a movement where music was able to transcend both mainstream markets and CCM circles, I’d have to say Switchfoot. Maybe some people have heard of this 5 piece band from San Diego, California, maybe some people haven’t. Regardless, Jon Foreman (lead singer) and co. have gifted us with mountains upon mountains of songs that have had (and continue to have) the ability to speak to our souls, to challenge our very being when other conversations and introspective discussions have failed to do so. Switchfoot’s music, for me, is a reminder of the power that a song can have in a certain moment, and that creating a song almost gives you licence to speak about almost every topic that can be judged as being ‘taboo’ in a sense. Faith can be discussed. Doubt, uncertainty, love, loneliness, worry, hope, joy, and everything else in between; expect all these facets and themes of life to be present in songs, especially Switchfoot’s! Brothers Jon and Tim (bass guitar), and other band members Drew Shirley (guitars), Jerome Fontamillas (guitars and keyboards) and Chad Butler (drums) have unveiled a band that is honest and sincere, positive yet also confronting and challenging, all the while presenting to us songs that minister to our soul, even if we don’t really know it at that point in time!

TOP 10___: 30 most impacting Switchfoot songs ever!

While we as a site mostly review albums, with the odd TV show and movie thrown in for variety, as well as posting blogs sometimes as well, many of you may be wondering where the up to date news is. I mean, why aren’t we posting about the up to date music/movie/TV show news? Well- it would be a bit time consuming- and we do have to prioritise in terms of what we think is most important. We still share the news- but just not directly on our site, but rather retweeted from other more official twitter accounts on our own twitter page (which is embedded on our site anyway!) So what does that have to do with Top Tens?
