REVIEW: The Wisecarvers – Silhouette

Producer: Jeff Collins
Record Label: Skyland Records/Crossroads Music Group

The Wisecarvers are a family group comprised of Vince and Tammy, Chase & Dustin along with Dustin’s wife, Kaila.They’ve been singing together as a family for 12 years, and they’re passionate about sharing the message of Hope found in Christ to the world. It is evident in their songs.

Their latest release, Silhouette¬†features some amazing songs and tight vocals, solid harmony and a progressive country sound. “Begin With You” is a great opening song and a middle of the road tempo about praising the Lord. Th vocals are top notch on this tune! “Jesus to Me” is another strong testimony song and would be a great radio single!

“Best of Forever” is a powerful ballad filled with hope of spending heaven with our loved ones. This is a great song to do live and is easy to respond to. The title track, “Silhouette,” featuring Dustin is an easy to listen to song and has a great message about reflecting the image of Jesus in our daily lives. Dustin’s voice has a raspy edge to it, but it is powerful.

“You Have my Attention” is a tender song, but the passion behind the delivery is outstanding. This song is absolutely beautiful and talks about getting away and being alone with Christ. Wow! Great song! “Manufactured Smiles” captured my attention before I even listened to it, just by the title. Then I listened and heard such truth. We have people around us, even in the church walking around broken, lost and lonely. We need to reach them! It’s another outstanding song and performance.

“Someone Else’s Valley” captured my ears immediately as well. Even when we are rejoicing and on the mountain top, other people around us are hurting and need to be shown grace, mercy & love and not to forget someone else’s valley. Great concept! It’s a good song of encouragement!

“Potter’s Wheel,” “Love You Still,” and “Go Down Again” are other great songs with solid performances and would do well in concert! The project closes with “Amazing Grace” the popular and classic hymn. The family’s arrangement is fresh and features lots of instrumental interludes.

The Wisecarvers are great singers, writers and performers. Their passion is felt, their sound is solid, and their future is bright! Go grab this project today! You won’t regret it!

Formed over 19 years ago by Deon & Susan Unthank originally as, the site was birthed from an email discussion group by the same name. The SoGospelNews email discussion list was created by the Unthanks after the Singing News shut down its extremely popular discussion list. SoGospelNews started as a simple webpage listing artists, fans, individuals, etc. that were avid supporters of the newly formed SoGospelNews talk list. The site eventually took on printing news for Southern Gospel artists, and eventually took on reviewing the latest recordings from both signed and independent artists within the small genre. SoGospelNews became the most viewed Southern Gospel website on the Internet with over 4,000,000 hits per month.

The Unthank family are now involved in the site, as well as the addition of over two dozen staff writers. The website is based out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In April 2010, SoGospelNews changed its name to The name change allows them to cover news items of not only Southern Gospel, but also Country Gospel, Inspirational, and Black Gospel.

On January 5, 2011, Susan Unthank passed away, leaving the website in control of Deon, their son, Chris, and their daughter Amy.
