Biography

“Ar scath a cheile a mhaireas na daoine.”
An old Irish proverb, as translated:
“It is in the shelter of each other that the people live.”

It is among our most basic of needs.

And like the other simple building blocks of life – air, food, water – it can take on many forms.
It can be physical or spiritual, close-in or far-flung, untested ... Read more in Amazon's Jars Of Clay Store

5.0 out of 5 stars A treasure in Jars of Clay May 12, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I can not count the number of times I have been listening to this cd and feel as if God is whispering some message into my ear through these beautiful lyrics. This cd is truly God-breathed, and I never can stop wondering with awe that these songs were written by 19 and 20 year olds! These songs are unbelievable in their content, with the amazing voice of Dan Hasletine singing these lyricaly simplistic songs, but deeply moving with their subtle messages, all with imaginative and unique melodies (I absolutely love the Gregorian chant in Liquid, and the string solo in Flood!) Jars of Clay will never cease to amaze me with their philisophical approach to human frailties, perspective of religion as a precious relationhip with God, and of course their awesome music! Their creative appraoch to using strings, and Dan's wonderful, wonderful voice have certainly made me find a treasure in Jars of Clay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jars of Clay is Evidence CCM has best of lyrics and sound February 22, 2000
Format:Audio CD
When I first purchased this CD, it was for the then popular song LIQUID. Its subtle lyrics are accompanied by a solid beat, but not overbearing like other Christian Rock music I've heard. You know... the kind that quenches the Spirit. I must admit, my first reaction was that I would like about two or three songs and the CD would eventually end up in the "pile". NOT! This is one of those collections that grows better with time! Each song tells of a different human condition of the heart to which we can all can relate - but you have to look deeper than the surface. This one is deep! It's not your typical praise and worship collection. You probably can't sing the songs in Sunday worship. But you will sing them in your car! You will sing them in praise to God! It tells of our relationship with a loving God in spite of our frailties. Some people will miss the soul searching, healing ministry Jars of Clay inspires if they don't think. Fortunately, the sound is soooo awsome that listening to all the songs over and over is not a problem. Two years after I first heard this CD, it is still my #1 pick... period. After several years of feeling that I would "sacrifice" musical and poetic content for the sake of wholesomeness (ie: CCM was sub-par), I am thrilled that CDs like this prove CCM is now the crem-de-la-crem!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Music, Deep lyrics, Great CD January 9, 2001
Format:Audio CD
After hearing Jars of Clay's first single off this CD, "Flood", on the radio, I immediatly wanted to hear more. When I heard the CD I was sold. I knew that this CD and band would be one of my favorites for a long time to come.
The CD starts off with "Liquid" which has an almost creepy gregorian chant in it. The acoustic guitars then come in and that sets the sound for the rest of the CD. This CD consists of acoustic guitars and on some songs, "Flood" for example, violens. The Jars get their distinct acoustic sounds from tuning their guitars differently than is standard. This simple task creates an incredibly wonderful sound.
The music is strong and the lyrics are incredibly deep. Ranging from the depiction of crucifiction ("Liquid") to child abuse ("He") to a love song ("Love Song for a Savior"). Along with the rich lyrics are vocals that easily convey the emotions of the songs. With a great lead vocalist (Dan Haseltine) and beautiful background vocals (Steve Mason and Charlie Lowell) you feel touched by each song.
The music, lyrics, and vocals just work nearly perfectly on this album which includes my favorite song, "Worlds Apart." This song took the longest to write on the album. The band wanted to make sure the lyrics and music was perfect. I couldn't agree more. If you love music with great acoustic guitars then you will love this. If you love "pop" or "rock" then you will enjoy this as well. This is a multi-faceted CD that everone should hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars what can I say? December 2, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Has a better song than, "Love Song for a Savior," ever been written by a contemporary christian artist/group? Doubtful. I narrowly missed attending Greenville college (located in the remote corn fields of southern illinois) during the same year the Jars guys were there. I own an indie copy of the Cd the rest of Jars worshipping world knows as their self-titled debut. Believe it or not, the songs on "Jars of Clay" sounded even better before they were re-mastered, re-cut, and re-produced for mass market appeal. What I love about the songs on this album is that the messages are so subtle, yet so poignant. Their songs are actually parables. Check out, "Boy on a string" with lyrics like, "watching the life that he created run away." This is a powerful statement with a deeper application than the sadness felt by a puppet maker upon losing his most prized creation. This is a wonderfully creative and emotionally powerful description of God's longing for the people He's fashioned with His own hands to remain in relationship with Him, only to suffer the loss of the fellowship of our hearts time and time again throughout history. This album is filled with hidden song writing masterpieces like this. To think that these songs were written by 19 and 20 year olds is staggering. Consider this lyric from "Love Song for a Savior," "a great salvation.... calls to the people, who stare into nowhere and can't fill the chains on their souls." Whoa, the weight of the truth conveyed here is strongly felt. If there's a central theme encapsulating the music on this CD, or any Jars CD, it would best be described as an artful portrayal of the human experience in light of the love God has for us all.
