Come To The River - Rhett Walker Band (Provident)
I’d not heard of this Christian rock outfit prior to receiving this album, but I’m certainly now a fan. Hailing from Nashville, Tennessee, the band only formed last year and Come to the River is their excellent debut.
Single When Mercy Found Me is currently riding high in the Christian charts and in Rhett’s own words is the testimony of the struggles that he went through as the teenage son of a preacher. He has a very distinctive voice and is equally at home with rock numbers or ballads.
This album has already become a real favourite in our house, including our one-year-old who nods his head along the music. My particular favourites are Get Up Get Out and Can’t Break Me, but to be honest the whole album is top quality. Highly recommended.
