I’m so excited to share the news about Toby Mac’s latest album “This Is Not a Test”! This album has been my constant companion for about a week and half now while I’m tackling all those to do projects around the house. The album is upbeat, motivational, and perfect music for working out! Music style is best described is a mix of rock, rap, funk, and hip-hop. Toby’s songs have caught my ear since the days of DC Talk! Speaking of DC Talk, the song “Love Feels Like” on this album brings the guys all back together and they completely deliver!
Toby continues to impress me with his songs of celebration and magnification to the Lord.I think his album is great for those of all ages though it may go over best with long time fans and the younger christian music loving crowd. I can’t pick a favorite song because they are all so well done. I will be recommending this album and can’t wait to see what else he has up his sleeves in the future!
About TOBYMAC: Toby McKeehan(known professionally as TobyMac) is a husband, father, performer, songwriter, producer, and businessman. Growing up in the northern Virginia suburbs adjacent to Washington D.C. helped instill his love for rap music. While attending Liberty University during the mid 80s, Toby met Michael Tait and Kevin Max Smith and these three friends formed the Grammy winning, platinum selling group dc Talk. Toby began his solo career in 1999 with his first solo album, Momentum, releasing in 2001. Momentum has been followed by four additional studio albums, Welcome to Diverse City (2004), Portable Sounds (2007), Tonight (2010), and Eye On It (2012), along with his first live album, Alive and Transported (2008). This Is Not A Test is his 6th studio album to be released. Starting with dc Talk, and then going solo when the group disbanded, Toby still clings to such rootsy notions as hard work, persistence, patience, and – perhaps most relevant of all – the power of music, which he insists is still what keeps him going. “It’s the truth,” he says. “I still believe that a song can penetrate a heart. I believe God can use a song to open someone’s mind and heart.”
