Christian singer/songwriter John Mark McMillan has been celebrated on Christian mainstream radio for his alternative sound and uplifting lyrics. His latest album has moved away from the themes of death and resurrection that clothed The Medicine to the interior psychology of a man trying to live in the uneasy valley between this world and the next, standing on the edge of the ocean of eternity, straining to see beyond the horizon line. He joined us before his show on April 17th at Vinyl.
