10 Songs, 40 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

FFH is short for “Far from Home” — a name highlighting a reoccurring theme in the Christian folk/pop quartet’s songs. A longing for a heavenly reunion has been on the group’s collective mind from the start. Far from Home: The FFH Collection (2007) follows the foursome’s career path from their 1998 debut I Want to Be Like You onwards. Central to the group’s appeal are their fine-blended harmonies, with Jennifer Deibler’s slightly breathy vocals adding character to those of her male bandmates. Over the years, the band has gradually incorporated electric guitars, strings and electronica touches into its acoustic-centered sound. Most importantly, FFH has continued to refine its commentaries upon the struggles of the modern believer. Jeromy Deibler’s songs capture a yearning for God’s embrace (“Fly Away,” “Open Up the Sky,” “Ready to Fly”) as well as have fun with Biblical imagery (“Big Fish”). “Worth It All” is especially eloquent in describing the Father’s steadfast love for His children. Far from Home retraces the miles FFH has travelled — and where they hope to be heading in the future.
