A previous independent release and two tours with Caedmon's Call have gained Bebo Norman a notable fan base. His first major-label release, Ten Thousand Days blends the reflection of a journal entry, the images of a poet, and the experiences of one who embraces all that comes his way. This upbeat folk album spotlights Norman's journey as he grapples with the important issues of life in order to live more faithfully. Throughout the project, Bebo's vocal and lyrical style carries an element of quietness that comes from his innermost self. The music has a spacious feel, but is not lacking in richness. Every tone, rhythm, and harmony has been tastefully chosen to create a purposeful sound. Its unobtrusive nature gently beckons the listener, making it a good fit in any setting. --Israel Button

Love this CD!
Just close your eyes!

"As with Bebo's first album, this one is no different aside from having a little more studio feel. I say close your eyes while listening to such songs as "A page is turned", or "A hammer holds". These two songs among all the rest touched me tremendously with the heartfelt lirics, as well as the incredible guitar and vocals. If you've ever wanted to see the love of Christ in a completely different prespective, listen to "A hammer holds". The incredible lirics of all twelve songs are like no other I've ever seen. Bebo is an artist who is still in touch with his fans and his art. He's the first to shake your hand, and has a genuine heart for God. I would recommend this album as well as Fabric of Verse to anyone who is looking to find Christian music that will do more than just make you feel happy. It's by far one of the best albums I have right now."
Beautiful, simple, accessible

"I first heard Bebo Norman during last year's Third Day tour; I ordered two of his CDs the day after the concert. This recording remains my favorite, for its richness and its diversity and its marvelous "listenability".Friends of mine who are fond of CCM often criticize Bebo for what they regard as the simplicity of his lyrics; compared to those of Jennifer Knapp or a Caedmon's Call, the words to a Bebo song are straightforward. But on clever and powerful songs like the sublime "The Hammer Holds", Bebo crafts a simple, tuneful, and deeply resonant meditation on God's sovereignty through the story of a nail that will, in due course, pierce the side of Christ. I saw many tears being wiped away when Bebo sang that live in Los Angeles a year ago; I have wiped away a few of my own while listening to that particular track.As I went through my recent and painful divorce, this was the CD that brought me the most reassurance. In particular, the lovely "Where the Angels Sleep" and the humble "In Your Hands" brought me tremendous comfort. Perhaps these are not the most sophisticated songs I could have been listening to, but in a time of great spiritual and emotional pain we tend to seek out the familiar, the comforting, and the beautiful. This CD has become all three of these for me, and I will continue to treasure it."
