Jonathan Thulin’s latest song “Dead Come To Life (Feat. Charmaine)” off his album The White Room (Amazon | iTunes), is a song about hope, rooted in Ezekiel 37. “This is a song that Charmaine and I wrote together and the idea came from the story in Ezekiel where the Lord tells Ezekiel to speak to the dry bones,” the singer explains. “God refers to them as the people of Israel and that they are dried up and without hope and that when he speaks breath into them they will come to life and know that he is Lord.”
Jonathan continues: “I think just reading that story in general you tend to relate to yourself. For me I felt dry and without hope and sometimes we forget what God we serve. He is the ONLY one who can make the dead come to life and not just physically but spiritually and mentally as well.”
Raised in Los Angeles, and originally from Sweden, Jonathan has been signing since he was a young boy. “Music was always my passion, is my passion and will always be my passion,” he says. Jonathan gained recognition for his music video "Babylon" in 2011, and has since sung alongside artists such as Leeland, Remedy Drive, and Group 1 Crew. Thulin is also one of the lead singers for the band Press Play.
Above all, Jonathan strives for his music to move beyond listener's ears and into their hearts. “I want people to be able to relate to my music and to feel like no matter what they face, no matter how deep into the darkness they think they are, there is always someone there to love them,” he says. “I wanna be a part of a generation doesn’t just speak up for God but acts out the way Jesus did. Jesus loved and gave himself in every way possible to every type of person. There is a much greater purpose and as soon as we understand the depth and beauty of the God we serve then we will have a different view of those around us and find even more ways to love.”
