Derek van Beever's "Living With A Ghost"

I have listened all day long to this new album from Derek van Beever, in which he faces faces crushing grief and seeks some path to continue on. His songs bristle with sharp and hurtful moments, and stark glimpses of loss and sorrow — and yet we are left moved and inspired by his love, and in the end we are made whole by his immense and abundant heart. This is an intimate and powerful work, and I urge you to give it a listen.
