Mike Mains & The Branches - Emma Ruth
Your mom will one day tell you the story of how I would find new bands or be attracted to certain songs and as always research them only to find out that they are a Christian band or a band that had influences of faith in their music. I am glad I find each one as I do hold my faith as important to me and we will allow you to decide if it will be for you as well. It has happened more times than I can count and Mike Mains & The Branches fit the category perfectly. I’ve seen them live once in Texas and it was fantastic…now hopefully they’ll one day make it down to Tampa!
Their album Home is one you will get, but I did have a couple songs in mind for this list. I decided to let you hear my favorite by the group, Emma Ruth. The story behind the song is quite powerful. A mentor to Mike was set to have a baby but the child was stillborn. When he returned and met with Mike he began to cry and according to Mike said “I still choose to believe that God is good”. Hearing this story myself was something I won’t forget and something that hit really hard. My hope is that my response in the face of such tragedy would be similar. The music and lyrics carry the power of the message well, it is one of those songs I don’t just listen to but instead feel as it plays.
