Apple and Thorns
was produced 2006 by Ed Morales in a folk-rock meets storytelling meets modern alternative. The sound of this CD features classic guitar and piano infused with modern electronic production and soulful themes of spiritual relevance and redemption. The depth of David Gray combined with the simplicity of Tom Petty.
This is an absolutely wonderful Gospel album and received huge attention. Apples & Thorns is exactly what we and our listeners are looking for us to provide for them on air. Our aim is to rise above the predictable music produced by the majors and maintain our independence.
--Peter Merritt, PBS Melbourne AustraliaVery wonderful inspirational CD. I detect a very honest, humble approach in the body of work, and that alone carries into the realm of inspired songs.
--Dusty Durst NGQ Music Prod. LLC St Louis MOI just listened to Apples & Thorns and was pleasantly taken back to memories of the days of the Jesus Movement. So many people now say, I wish Christian music had the same feel and sincerity as the early days. Well Ed, thanks for providing some of that for people longing for it.
