The Phantom Tollbooth

Music and more from a Christian perspective

Slow down, and have your change ready

Since 1996

 ...an all-business Focus album with less humor and a leaner, jazzier sound. Still, it's the Focus we know and love...

Hymn-meister Townend blends the everyday with eternity in his latest batch of organic, Celtic-flavoured songs.

R&B stands out among EDM influences

…they don’t sacrifice a measure of musical dexterity for the sake of style, but energetically attack originals and standards with equal amounts of enthusiasm.

A beautiful meeting of two very different continents, and surprising connections.

The Gettys take a run at re-working some psalms, and add a bonus.

Faith pours through these words, whether critiquing culture, pointing to grace, reflecting on mortality, adoring God – or simply enjoying creativity in their wordplay and rich imagery.

After SOAR, another album based on themes of bird and human migration! This one fuses Gaelic vocals, afro house, global rhythms and audacious  west African brass.

Turkish Canadians take traditional tunes and bathe them in shimmering, atmospheric guitars.  The dreamy soundscape saunters along with a subtle kick in its step, as it expresses the pain of rootlessness.
