This is a three-track single from Gloucestershire's Sure Foundation (named for 1 Corinthians 3:11). The band is led by Ade Palmer whose rather rock 'n' roll raspy vocals sound not a million miles away from Lifehouse's Jason Wade. "Wonderful" is an upbeat country-rock number in the style of Third Day, augmented by a harmonica. "To Really Love Him" is a gentler acoustic song about unity and love, while "You Knew Me" finishes proceedings in the style of Bryan Adams - a lilting song that breaks into a more electric feel and Palmer's vocals come into their own. This is a good offering: the production is solid and the performances are musically good. As this band get tighter and grow in their songwriting ability, we can expect them to become a popular and exciting part of the UK Christian music landscape.
