Video Premiere: Ant Coughlin – All My Life

“All My Life” is heavily influenced by a particular season of life and people who have been a part of Ant’s story. The aim of “All My Life” is two-fold; to provide a voice of hope and imploration to people struggling with addiction and serve as a commentary on the troubles of the city, particularly his city. His muse for this came from his close relationships with friends and loved ones who have wrestled with drug addiction and his own experience watching the eroding effects of heroine, prescription pills, methadone clinics and the tremendous power of shame on human identity and ambition. Ant’s heart on this song is quite simple—Your shame, pain and guilt has been taken away by Another. Substitutes for His love and grace will only leave us wanting; hence the words:

In the souls of the jaded, the devastated
from doing everything that they He hated–I see His face
portraits of His portrait, painted over with poor traits
satiated with poor fakes–forgeries of the LORD’S grace

Since 2004, Ant has been featured on Stephen the Levite’s To Die is Gain, Shai Linne’s Storiez and Lyrical Theology Pt.1, and Wes Pendleton’s Nebulous. He just released his first EP Light Rooms / Dark Halls on July 22nd.

“All My Life”, the second single from Light Rooms / Dark Halls was produced by Wes Pendleton and cut up by DJ Average Joe.
