This Is Not A Test
Well, if you are a TobyMac fan…and if you’ve ever heard him, you’re a fan, right?…you are going to love this new album entitled This Is Not a Test. I LOVE it! You’ve probably already heard Beyond Me playing on the Christian radio stations. This entire album is just as good! It is typical TobyMac, and it is amazing. It is uplifting and will have you praising God and singing along.
This Is Not a Test is TobyMac’s 6th studio album to be released. Starting with dc Talk, and then going solo when the group disbanded, Toby still clings to such rootsy notions as hard work, persistence, patience, and – perhaps most relevant of all – the power of music, which he insists is still what keeps him going. “It’s the truth,” he says. “I still believe that a song can penetrate a heart. I believe God can use a song to open someone’s mind and heart.”
This Is Not a Test releases August 7th and has the following songs on the deluxe album:
Toby McKeehan (known professionally as TobyMac) is a husband, father, performer, songwriter, producer, and businessman. Growing up in the northern Virginia suburbs adjacent to Washington D.C. helped instill his love for rap music. While attending Liberty University during the mid 80s, Toby met Michael Tait and Kevin Max Smith and these three friends formed the Grammy winning, platinum selling group dc Talk.
Toby began his solo career in 1999 with his first solo album, Momentum, releasing in 2001. Momentum has been followed by four additional studio albums, Welcome to Diverse City (2004), Portable Sounds (2007), Tonight (2010), and Eye On It (2012), along with his first live album, Alive and Transported (2008).
