THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG
“Taste and see”
For many years my focus as a Christian song writer has been to write songs to edify the body of Christ. However, last summer at a gospel song writing workshop in Hackney in East London which was led by Gospel producer Niki Brown, I felt the Holy Spirit birthing in me a desire to write songs not simply for church congregations but for those beyond the church walls.
I recall when being asked by Niki, what songs I would write if I were to shift focus and write more specifically for non-church attenders, my response was “music which has a dance/garage feel” because this is the sort of music that I gravitated towards before I came to Christ.
So, I believe that “Try” was birthed out of a desire to fulfil a mandate, to make the love of Christ known through music, to those who would not ordinarily go to church.
The song aims to dispel the lies about who Jesus is, invite people to try Jesus for themselves (or as the psalmist puts it in psalm 34:8 to “taste and see that the Lord is good”) and it also declares the truth about the love of Christ being far greater than any other love we could ever know, which we do not have to work hard to receive.
