John Bowman Family Chain

by | 28 Aug, 2011

Here’s some news of John Bowman from Crossroads.

John Bowman is a man of significant talent as evidenced from his career and this new album Family Chain paying, homage to the song writing talents of Joe Isaccs. John started his professional music career with celebrated artists such as Doyle Lawson and Alison Krauss and spent some years with the Isaacs. Now John fronts as a vocalist, fiddle and banjo player for the bluegrass super-group, the Boxcars.

I feel these songs truly show the God-given gift that Joe possesses to write songs that minister to other people. My intention here is to give credit to a man who has greatly influenced me both personally and spiritually. I hope as you listen to this recording that you can feel the heartfelt love I have for the music of Joe Isaacs. His writing is a treasure that will stand the test of time – John Bowman.

The first radio single, He Never Failed Me, is a perfect example of how John has updated a classic Joe Isaacs tune, and features Jeff and Sheri Easter on guest vocals. They join an all-star cast that includes Adam Steffey, Gordon Mote, Ben Isaacs, and Rob Ickes, offering their talents to these new renditions of Gospel treasures.
