New from Desperation Band’s Glenn Packiam, comes his debut solo album Rumors and Revelations featuring a collection of fresh new worship songs and contemporary favorites. Included are two of Glenn’s most popular songs “My Savior Lives” and “Your Name” as well as new songs like “Burning in Me,” “For Love I Sing,” “Without You” and “My Hope” featuring a personal message of hope written for friends who experienced the stillbirth of their baby.
“Many of the songs were written over the last two years, during my own journey of wrestling with God,” says Glenn. “I had been coasting in my own walk with the Lord and allowed my view of God to devolve into a patchwork of rumors. I would never have said that I believed these half-truths about God--things like ‘God will give me what I want’ or that ‘God shares my goal of success’ -- but I was living as if I did. There are no shortcuts to God. The way to God-- to life -- is vigorous and requires total attention. I pray these songs reflect that and ignite the heart on a journey to firsthand faith.”
Rumors and Revelations’ 10 songs stand alone as a powerful worship project, but the CD also provides context and perspective to Packiam’s new book, Secondhand Jesus…Trading Rumors of God for a Firsthand Faith. Both the book AND the CD will challenge you to crush mistakenly held rumors about God and enter into an authentic experience of Christ’s power, first-hand.

Glenn has a bunch of talent. I really like his songs "Burning in Me", "I Will Stand', and "Hold On". This CD is packed with inspirational stuff and I am amazed at his talent. Way to Go!

To be honest, I have never heard this artist personally but all of the things I have heard have been good things. From what I understand, he sings from his heart for the God he trusts.
ah, the solo release| Posted July 01, 2009
ah, the solo release. yes the album where a member, normally lead singer of a great band, branches off to release his own album to show everyone just what he can really do. I'm watching and listening to your Burning In Me music video, and though I'm not in the mood for such a slow song, i definitely want to buy it so i can listen to it when I am in that slow mood. Keep goin' with The Desperation Band too!
