“Kevin Newhall has been on quite an artistic journey. From his former days as a CCM (contemporary Christian music) performer to the present as an out-and-proud queer musician, Newhall has his say on If I Had My Way with Words (kevin-newhall.com). The irresistible "Today's the Day" expresses relatable sentiments with a touch of humor. "Dear Jonathan" is a heartbreaking musical letter to an ex sure to make more than a few eyes water. "Easy Chair" is a current events update set to music. Newhall adds strings to "I'm Afraid" and "Familiar Tune," and strips things down for the personal bio of "Dust."”
