It's been quite awhile since Phillip was enjoying CCM success, duetting with his sister Natalie in the duo LaRue. In recent times Phillip has forged out a new career as a producer and songwriter working with such big hitters as Jars Of Clay and Brandon Heath. Contained here on this four-track EP (available as a free download at the time of writing) are recordings not used elsewhere. The first two are demos (although compared to several demos I have heard, you would not know it!). "Set Them Free" is a simple engaging song about carrying loads while "Who You Are" is a message of encouragement and support. The two live tracks "How Do You Say Goodbye" and "Branches Of Heaven" are equally special - you feel as if Phillip is sharing something personal with you. These are great songs which are well worth investigating!
