American Jesus By Foldinglights

Michael Peter Ball is the artist behind Foldinglights. Desperate to add some of his colours to the madness of this world, he writes with vulnerability, and straight from the heart honesty, about faith, love, death and everything in between. He has dedicated himself to crafting music that cuts straight to the centre of the soul.

Foldinglights is equally at home performing on the stages of music venues around his native Belfast as he is leading worship in his home church and has performed with many artists including Martin Smith, Audrey Assad and Nathan Jess. He played his first London show at Camden’s famous “Hawley Arms’ venue in March 2018 with Tina Boonstra, and since then has gone on to play many of the summer festivals including Summer Madness and Creation Fest.

Americana meets Industrial Synthpop on this outing. The song claims we’ve made Jesus into our own image. Do we really believe Jesus was white with blue eyes? Do we believe Jesus chooses one political party over another? Do we believe Jesus would only hang about the most gentrified part of town drinking artisan coffee? 

The question asked here is do we really know the Jesus of the bible, or like the religious people of his day, are we trying to make him into somethingthat suits our own lifestyle.

American Jesus was released 12th April 2019
