EDITORS’ NOTES

Harkening back to his East Tennessee roots, Brandon Heath invokes the people and landscapes of Appalachia on Blue Mountain. His latest release takes a creative leap by exploring biblical themes with homespun imagery that’s both nostalgic and timeless. Musically, Heath plays down the modern pop/rock sounds of his recent releases in favor of fiddles, banjos, dobros and other acoustic instrumentation. “The Harvester” and “Hands of the Healer” have a sturdy folk quality akin to the Avett Brothers, while title tune invokes the high ‘n’ lonesome mood of classic country. Upbeat, radio-friendly tracks like “Love Will Be Enough” add some contrast to heavier God-centered meditations like “He Paid it All.” Heath’s skill at storytelling is in fine form here, whether he’s saluting a beloved grandfather (“Paul Brown Petty”) or imagining the last meal of a condemned man (“Dyin’ Day”). “Diamond” and “In the Dust” express eternal spiritual values with fresh language and a compassionate heart. A standout release, Blue Mountain ranks among Heath’s most personal works as well as his most accomplished.

Another great album

This one from Heath is so amazing! The songs have that personal feel and really grips the heart. This album features a little more of a softer side with a bit of country and folk, it really has roots. If your looking for something a little more calm that sings of Jesus this is the place to start.
