Reviewed by Tony Cummings

Every now and then a reviewer hears a new band's debut and by its closing he is predicting much US Christian radio play and CCM success for the newcomers. The reason for such confidence is, in part, the quality of the songs, which deal with timeless themes with melodic flair and the lyricist's ability to ease insights out of familiar themes like the Cross, not being ashamed of the Gospel and the need for spiritual rescue. In part it's the appealing voice of frontman Adam Klutinoty who manages to sound warm and passionate at the same time. In part it's the production skills of Ian Eskelin (Francesca Battistelli, Sidewalk Prophets) and Howard Benson (Third Day, Daughtry). But whatever the component parts of this refreshing debut, this trio of siblings from Butler, Pennsylvania make an engaging album. 'About A Mile' will seem predictable and generic to the hipsters but to less blinkered Christian radio listeners simply looking for spiritual uplift with well crafted, well performed songs, this will do very nicely. Get ready to hear "Power Of The Cross" and the "Jesus Freak for this current generation", "In With The Out Crowd" on plenty of radio playlists.

Product Description
About A Mile, whose name originates from the belief that Jesus carried his cross "about a mile" may be new on the charts but have already gained recognition on the Christian Rock genre.

The band, comprised of brothers Adam, Luke and Levi, have a chemistry and accomplished artistry that only comes from the bond of brotherhood. Their self-titled album hopes to speak to members of all faiths about the suffering then triumph of a crucified and risen Christ.

While not concerned with fame or fortune the band is simply focused on honouring God through their music.
