I had the honor of connecting with Neal Morse, the pontiff of Progressive Rock, prior to the release of the fourth album from NMB (Neal Morse Band) entitled Innocence & Danger. The two-disc set will release on August 27, 2021.
Neal fronted the (secular) Progressive Rock band Spock's Beard in the 90's and early 2000's before getting saved and reestablishing himself as a Christian artist. His reformed career is decidedly evangelical in nature in that he uses his world-class musicianship to minister to many who don't know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. His musical prowess and authenticity break through barriers which transcend the scope of traditional Christian music ministry.
I was blessed with the opportunity to interview Neal Morse in anticipation of his upcoming solo album entitled Sola Gratia (which translates to "by grace alone"). We covered a myriad of topics from writing and recording an album during a pandemic to sharing knowledge on his unique business model that is working very effectively for him.
