About The Love In Between
While holding strong to his calling as a musical missionary, The Love In Between unveils a side of Maher that delves more deeply into the ideas of suffering, grace, redemption and hope. These concepts are neatly swaddled in a new folk-Americana ìblue collar gospelí sound, fusing rootsy, hook-laden tracks with compelling stories and undeniable truths.
