Deep Dive: Russ Taff's self-titled album (Episode 10)

CCM in 3D

When an artist self-titles their debut album, the message is usually along the lines of, "Hello there. This is who we are. Nice to meet you." When an artist self-titles their third, fourth, fifth, or later album, the message is much different: "Hello again. This album will contain big changes from who we were previously." So it was in 1987 when CCM vocalist Russ Taff released his self-titled third solo album. Whereas the previous album (Medals, 1985) had been full of anthems about not bowing to idols and the artist being "rock solid," the viewpoint had shifted radically on the third album. Taff had clearly plummeted "down in the lowlands" and a "dark night of the soul" album was the result. The 3D's were excited to revisit an album that meant so much to each of them back in 1987. Would the songs still hold up today? Would the message carry the same gravitas as before? Would the production undermine the seriousness of the lyrics? Push play and find out for yourself. --- The 3D's are Dan, Derek, and Dave. Three friends who used to work together in early 1990s in Christian radio who love to reminisce about music from the golden era of CCM, 1985-1995.

Ep 63 - Russ Taff | I Still Believe


Russ Taff was born the fourth of five sons to a fire-breathing, Pentecostal preacher father and a Gospel-music-loving mother. He learned early on that when he sang, people responded. And over the next four decades, they continued to respond. Russ has been awarded six Grammy Awards and eighteen Gospel Music Association Dove Awards. He has been inducted into the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame an unprecedented three times – as a member of the Imperials, a member of the Gaither Vocal band, and in recognition of his solo career. Russ is the picture of a man filled with gratitude and grace. “God called me to sing when I was just a little preacher’s kid in Farmersville, California,” he says, “and He’s still calling.”
