Savannah, Georgia based Draucker are a real family affair, featuring three siblings amongst their five members. This EP showcases seven tracks that have been refined over the past two years whilst they have been leading worship together as a group and touring with the likes of American Idol's Cade Foehner. The overall sound is a mix of polished pop rock that includes elements of country, reminiscent of Shania Twain at times. Opening with the catchy title track, a dirty guitar groove leads into a cut that rolls and rocks along with a driving bass and Sarah Draucker's pleasant vocals. After this edgy start to the proceedings things step slightly off the gas and move over to a more laid back feel. "Leave Me Alone" has a lovely walking bass part that is filled with some nice keys and a southern rock lilt. As a whole piece, the production is polished and clear making the recording easily accessible. At times you could describe some of the tracks easy listening and Draucker's worship roots become definitely prominent. "Make It Easy" sounds just like a worship pop track. I can see this style of music opening many doors for them, but not really in the rock arena. This five piece are a talented bunch who put together catchy hooks and sing along numbers that are accessible without being particularly inventive. If you enjoy a sing along southern country rock track you could do much worse than seeking out this tight knit family outfit.
