"We're gonna spread the word, we're gonna make a mark." One of many great lines from the opening title track "Made To Shine" from a bluesy-voiced new American singer. The opener will have you singing along on the first listen, guaranteed. The tracks that follow do not disappoint either; in fact, it's hard to pinpoint a weak moment in this funky offering. The album tempo is slowed down nicely mid way through with open and honest sharing in the track "Now". "Now, yes I'm crying out from the depths of my inmost being/Now, come have your way with me." I can tell that this guy really believes in what he writes through the energy he portrays and most importantly he shows a strong passion for his Saviour. This is shown through the closing track "All For You", powerful stuff. Strong, powerful piano playing rips through every track on offer while compelling lyrics are delivered through JD's gutsy vocal style. This is a thought provoking release which has this reviewer reaching for repeat-play.
