Christian singer introduces 'A Work in Progress'

A full-time criminal investigator for the State of Georgia, hopes to reach the public singing about his Christian faith.

Investigator Adam Howell, of Griffin, which is in neighboring Spalding County, will appear Jan. 18, at 6 p.m., at Alvin's Bar-B-Que, located at 1129 Ethridge Mill Road, in Griffin.

Howell will perform Christian rock songs from his current project, entitled "A Work in Progress."

Howell, 30, began pursuing music after becoming a Christian in 2006. He said his motivation for chasing after a career as a singer, came at a time when he was "lacking dreams."

"These words just started coming to me," said Howell. "I actually sat on it for a little while, but I didn't want it to go stagnant."

Howell began writing his own music two years ago, and aligned himself with the Oklahoma-based Tate Music Group, in March of 2009. Howell released a self-titled CD last year.

Tate Music Group Marketing Representative Monique Headley said Howell brings a "unique voice" to the Christian music scene.

"The earnestness of his message, and what he is trying to communicate, is real, and I think people can benefit from it," Headley said.

She added that Howell's music reflects his desire to be "transparent."

The singer said his musical influences include Christian bands Third Day, MercyMe and Kutless. Asked whether he wants to have a permanent music career of his own, he said, "if that's what the Lord leads me to do."

Howell added that he hopes audiences at Alvin's will enjoy his performance, and apply the messages of his music to their lives.
