There have also been two children’s albums and one in Spanish! Garth has been joined on his records by a wide variety of artists: Bryn Haworth, B J Cole, Beth Rowley, Jessy Dixon, Sir Cliff Richard, Martyn Joseph, Randy Stonehill, Ben Okafor, Reem Kelani, Penny Cave, Mark Heard, Paul Field, Paul Pilot, Duke Special, Denise Ogbeide and many more including his own daughter Abi and daughter in law Eils Hewitt – you’ll hear many of these on this album.

This album is a companion to Garth’s autobiography/Memoir also called Against the Grain. In the book Garth tells what motivated his ministry of music and justice. He shares his influences – his early years – tells the story of his involvement with the Greenbelt festival from its earliest days. He talks about his sense of vocation both as a priest and in terms of his commitment to issues of justice. Garth tells of the creation and work of the Amos Trust that he founded and also how and why he got involved in the struggle for justice for Palestine.
