Updated 4-4-12 with new songs!
I find that many songs are sung today, but not many of them are sung from the heart. This Spring break, I had the distinct privilege of meeting one of the most inspirational and talented men to walk the earth today.
Curt Vernon describes himself as a 6’9″ ridiculously happy man that lives in a ’92 Celica. He is definitely one of the coolest (and tallest) guys that I met in Florida on a mission trip called Beach Reach. After getting back to Texas, I saw that he had posted a link to his music on his Facebook. After hearing his songs, I realized that more people needed to hear them. Last time Curt came down to Texas to visit I filmed a music video for his song, Rebel Bride.
The Thoroughbred Community Church website leaves this disclaimer above their links to the music,
“WARNING! The lyrics in these songs may cause conviction leading to repentance.” I honestly believe this is an accurate description of the songs that Curt has created.
All of Curt’s songs from the album, “Songs for The Brood & Me”, are free to stream and download off The Thoroughbred Community Church Website as well as my website here.
Every one of them tells a different story.
You can download the full CD here and other songs below!
Curt’s full CD is awesome, I highly recommend you listen to all of it!
Download Revival Song (Studio Version):
Tony Anderson aka 23Violins on Soundcloud is one of the most talented composers I’ve ever had the pleasure of conversing with. He recorded a studio version of Curt’s Revival song and graciously allowed me to put a download link up here as well.

These three songs were recorded at Beach Reach 2010. Around 4am we held a worship jam session and recorded three videos and songs. Before each song Curt would tell a story about how God gave him the song. You can watch the videos at the three links below…

There’s nothing quite like hearing scripture sang directly. It’s very powerful.

Mason Jar Jesus is an awesome reminder to not put Jesus on the shelf.

None of Self and All of Thee
None Of Self And All Of Thee by Curt Vernon is an amazing story of God’s reaching out and pulling us in to him. First we are entirely self focused; and then gradually, we become entirely focused on Him.

Pornography Will Murder You
Pornography Will Murder You by Curt Vernon is the perfect example of humanity’s willingness to lust, as well as God’s forgiveness and saving grace from that lust. It gets really good about 1:55 into the song!

You Are My Rest

Preferences by Curt Vernon is a look at God’s saving power from a slightly snarky viewpoint. Definitely a way of looking at the Christian faith that not many people have tried before.

Great and Terrible Day of The LORD
Great and Terrible Day of The LORD by Curt Vernon is an awesome song that pushes the limits of how a worship song is made. Curt begins and ends it with the powerful verse, “If you remember nothing else, I have said to you this night, remember this, God is Love…” and the middle of the song holds the lines, “God I know that your first name is love, but your middle name is wrath, I even love the way you discipline and I love the way you laugh…”

If you like this song you should really watch the Rebel Bride music video I created.
