The second single from Ant Coughlin’s new Light Rooms, Dark Halls album, which is out today, is called “All My Life” and features production by Wes Pendleton and cuts by DJ Average Joe.

Like each song on the project, “All My Life” is heavily influenced by a particular season of life and people who have been a part of my story. The aim of “All My Life” is two-fold; to provide a voice of hope and imploration to people struggling with addiction and serve as a commentary on the troubles of the city, particularly my city. My muse for this came from my close relationships with friends and loved ones who have wrestled with drug addiction and my own experience watching the eroding effects of heroine, prescription pills, methadone clinics and the tremendous power of shame on human identity and ambition. My heart on this song is quite simple—Your shame, pain and guilt has been taken away by Another. Substitutes for His love and grace will only leave us wanting; hence the words:

In the souls of the jaded, the devastated
from doing everything that they He hated–I see His face
portraits of His portrait, painted over with poor traits
satiated with poor fakes–forgeries of the LORD’S grace

I've been an enormous Christian music fan since a concert by The World Wide Message Tribe in 2001. I'm passionate about spending my life changing the Christian music stereotype/saving the lives of our youth with it. I love puns, sports, wrestling & logic puzzles. I also have an English accent...because I'm English. My favo(u)rite 10 bands are: TFK, KJ-52, Disciple, Stellar Kart, Manafest, Skillet, Kutless, Family Force 5, Seventh Day Slumber and Ashes Remain.
