tuesday tunes – jon foreman

Today's Tuesday Tunes highlight comes from a seriously talented musician and lead vocalist of the band Switchfoot, Jon Forman. Until a couple of years ago, I hadn't really given Switchfoot much attention, kind of writing them off as "just another Christian rock band". However, they're Strider's favorite band (seriously, his not-so-secret life goal is to have a jam session with Jon Foreman…major man crush happenin' there) and he introduced me to Foreman's solo work…which is phenomenal and more acoustic-y than Switchfoot's normal style. Plus, Jon is an excellent writer and really shares his heart and his love for Christ through his poetic words. So on this Tuesday, I'd like to share a song which feels like a prayer just to listen to it: The House of God, Forever.


  1. i love switchfoot! amazing band, and yes, jon's lyrics are terrific. got into them back in 2000. "i dare you to move" is still one of my all-time favorites, and just as powerful to listen to today as it was 12 years ago.

  2. They are great! I'd also highly recommend one of their latest songs "Restless": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsDKZGxoG8w
