If you've been long time listeners or readers of Cross Rhythms, you'll remember the band Remission Flow, who in the past enjoyed Cross Rhythms playlist hits like "Fearless", "More Like You" and "It Is Well". You might even have picked up on the news that Remission Flow disbanded in 2014 and that lead singer Darren Mulligan and his wife relocated to Nashville where Darren signed with one of the biggest Christian record companies in the world, Word Records. In music city Darren and Heidi Mulligan formed We Are Messengers with American musicians and Word began to drip feed singles to US Christian radio. These were enthusiastically received and now (on 22nd April to be precise) the stage is set for WAM to take a big forward step with the release of their debut album. It's certainly been worth the wait. Darren has a rare talent in writing songs without being stereotypical and penning lyrics which aren't shallow regurgitation of biblical truth that still clogs some parts of Nashville CCM. If you've never heard Darren sing then we assure you that his voice is as memorable as his songwriting with his ability to go up an octave on a chorus or bridge being very affecting. Some of Nashville's finest producers - Josh Bronleewe, Ed Cash and Seth Mosley - help bring out the catchiness of his songs (I particularly enjoyed the ooh-oh-oh male BVs on "Everything Comes Alive" while the other songs currently getting US airplay "I'm On Fire" and "Point To You" really register. All in all, a fine pop rock debut.
