The album “The Remnant” paints pictures in songs that point to working class struggles. The backdrop is how faith plays out in the midst of those struggles. It points to a time where traditional values were more engrained. This is stated in a line from the song “The Remnant”. It says, “and there’s a remnant deep down in many hearts, that wants to stay alive and love, and keep on, keep on fighting the good fight.” The album also touches on life in “The Union,” with the song “Union Brother.” The song, “On Our Way” depicts the carefree life of kids that grew up in a much more innocent world.  All-in-all, it is a blue collar collage of pictures in stories, poetically told in a way that makes the listener ask the question “what is he really getting at here.” Some things are quite obvious, but other themes seem to come across in layers that make you want to hear them over again.
