Vinyl LP version of Blue Mountain, the 2012 release from Brandon Heath.
From the dynamic first single, "Jesus In Disguise" to the heartwarming tale of "Paul Brown Petty," Brandon weaves together a collection of songs full of heart and rich with redemption. Staying true to his craft of personal songwriting, Blue Mountain's back porch ease further establishes Brandon Heath's accessible brand of story telling. Harkening back to his East Tennessee roots, Brandon Heath invokes the people and landscapes of Appalachia on Blue Mountain. His latest release takes a creative leap by exploring biblical themes with homespun imagery that's both nostalgic and timeless. Musically, Heath plays down the modern pop/rock sounds of his recent releases in favor of fiddles, banjos, dobros and other acoustic instrumentation.The Harvester
and Hands of the Healer
have a sturdy folk quality akin to the Avett Brothers, while title tune invokes the high ‘n' lonesome mood of classic country. Upbeat, radio-friendly tracks like Love Will Be Enough
add some contrast to heavier God-centered meditations like He Paid it All.
Heath's skill at storytelling is in fine form here, whether he's saluting a beloved grandfather (“Paul Brown Petty) or imagining the last meal of a condemned man (“Dyin' Day). Diamond
and In the Dust
express eternal spiritual values with fresh language and a compassionate heart. A standout release, Blue Mountain ranks among Heath's most personal works as well as his most accomplished. - iTunes
