Here we are on Day Three of “Girls of Christian Indie,” what’s becoming a two-week look at… some girls of Christian indie music. We’ve already looked at Lori Chaffer and Karen Peris, so today, to switch it up a little bit, I give you Misty Edwards.
Misty Edwards is a worship leader coming out of IHOP (the International House of Prayer, not Pancakes) in Kansas City, not a 3rd grade teacher or a senior airman in Iraq. In case you were wondering. (Note: I found these pictures of other Misty Edwardses when I searched for the real Misty Edwards who is featured in this post here.)
Yes, she is a worship leader, and a very good one at that, in my opinion.
Since last week I covered a folk rock group (typical blogging material), I thought I’d switch gears a little this week and offer something not too many MP3 blogs are covering – worship music.
If you haven’t heard of her yet, check out Isa Couvertier, a worship leader coming out of the International House of Prayer in Kansas City. If you’re like me, you’re tired of all the Chris Tomlin / Tim Hughes / Matt Redman copycat worship bands. Not to diss those guys at all. I think they’re great worship leaders, and it’s hard to do a worship set without at least one Redman song (see here for a good laugh), but it’s retarded when everybody tries to be just like them. With a simple, intimate style of worship and a soft voice that seems to draw you in, Isa comes across as fresh and unique – at least until the cycle repeats itself and everybody starts copying her too.
