REVIEW: Jody McBrayer – Keep Breathing

jmcbrayer-keepbreathingProducer: Wayne Haun
Record Label: StowTown Records

Jody McBrayer is a powerhouse vocalist. His amazing tenor vocals won the hearts of fans during his time with Truth and then later as co-founder of Avalon. Jody is back after a hiatus from recording and has found a home at StowTown Records. His new project, Keep Breathing, is top-notch and filled with personal, heartfelt songs.

“Good to be Home” kicks things off and has a definite praise and worship feel to it and sets the tone for the entire project! “Keep Breathing,” the project’s title track, is a co-write of McBrayer and is a mid-tempo song filled with hope and encouragement and definitely a testimony song for Jody!

Former Truth and Avalon mate Melissa Greene is featured with Jody on “God is in Control.” These two are a vocal match made in heaven on this powerhouse ballad.  “With Each Borrowed Breath” is another definite worship song that will transport you into His presence. Jody’s vocals are flawless on this song.

“Me” is a simply gorgeous, tender ballad, and you can truly feel Jody’s heart as he sings this beautiful song that is definitely one of the best vocal deliveries on the entire project. The project closer, “This Is A Son,” is an awesome song reminding listeners that Jesus knows what it is like to face rejection and heartbreak. This song truly connects with hearts and is a tearjerker. This is another outstanding performance and a powerful song!

There really isn’t a weak song on this record. Jody has outdone himself, and it’s refreshing to listen to an album that is fresh and full of passionate vocals and strong, relatable songs. Go grab a copy of this project. It’s a must for every gospel music fan!
