From his professional beginning with celebrated artists Doyle Lawson and Alison Krauss, to his years with the Isaacs, and now as vocalist, fiddle and banjo player for the Bluegrass super-group, the Boxcars, John Bowman is a man of significant talent. He now pays homage to Bluegrass Gospel icon Joe Isaacs with his new project, Family Chain. 


John shares, “I feel these songs truly show the God-given gift that Joe possesses to write songs that minister to other people. My intention here is to give credit to a man who has greatly influenced me both personally and spiritually. I hope as you listen to this recording that you can feel the heartfelt love I have for the music of Joe Isaacs. His writing is a treasure that will stand the test of time.”


The first radio single, “He Never Failed Me,” is a perfect example of how John has updated a classic Joe Isaacs tune, and features Jeff and Sheri Easter on guest vocals. They join an all-star cast that includes Adam Steffey, Gordon Mote, Ben Isaacs, and Rob Ickes, offering their talents to these new renditions of Gospel treasures.

    I've bought many cd's but I have never bought one that I loved every song on it before this one. The songs and harmony and John Bowman are awesome. Until I heard him on the radio yesterday I hadn't heard of him. As soon as I heard him sing He never Failed Me,'
    I knew I had to find more. This CD is a Must Hear CD.
    Love It!!!!!!

    My first time getting John's stuff, and it is absolutely fantastic! I am a big Isaacs fan and that is what got me to finding out about John. I highly recommend this, not only for the performances but the songs written by Joe Isaacs. What a joy. It is in my car cd daily.
