Viola is an expatriate Swede presently living in Hawaii and this is an interesting and very easy on the ear collection of original compositions and covers (unlike some I could name, the originals out number the cover versions by six to three) weighing in at 44 minutes for the nine songs. Nothing to leap out of the speakers and grab you by the throat but the song6 are well chosen, sung quite satisfactorily with a good backing band drawn from Tom Brock's Wave Of Life Ministries team in Hawaii. Mark Jobe, who plays drums, has written two of the songs featured here; keyboard player Mark Riley adds another, and the lady herself has credits on three, including hart a medley and one sung mostly in Swedish. For those who were at Cross Rhythms to hear Viola do her stuff in the Showcase Tent will attest to the lady's anointing. Musically, those who like nice n' easy gentle pop music should like this. Bearing in mind that the album took just three days to record it's spectacularly good.

Is it possible to buy the above Sample Track Listing.
Premier Christian radio use to play " Let Me Be There Too" a lot in the mid nineties. I would love to purchase these songs, I already have 2 albums by Viola.
