EDITORS’ NOTES

On Love Is Waiting, Danen Kane shows his ability to frame issues of faith within the context of real-life situations and delivers a set of tunes characterized by empathetic lyrics and polished, crisply-delivered folk/pop melodies. Kane brings to mind such secular troubadours as Ben Harper and Mason Jennings with his earnest tenor and feel for insistent acoustic rhythms. He has a knack for writing worship tunes in the form of personal confessions, infusing songs like “Beautiful Mess,” “Inheritance” and the title number with a palpable longing. Just as appealing are his tunes dealing with romantic relationships from a faith-based perspective — “Deeper” is an especially sensitive look at the thrills and perils of falling in love. Mixed by renowned engineer Mills Logan (of Taylor Swift and Toby Keith fame), Love Is Waiting has a bright, assertive sound, with “Every Day” striking a breezy Jason Mraz-style note and “You Came to Me” introducing a hint of Coldplay’s atmospheric edge. Throughout, Kane keeps the emphasis on the spiritually positive while acknowledging human failings, especially his own.
