Robbie Seay Band on American Idol Promo

Recently I saw some American Idol commercials which had a familiar song in the Background. Interestingly it is a Christian song and Artist. The Robbie Seay Band song “Rise” is the catchy song in the background. Click the above link to hear the song from their Myspace page. I had intended to write a review of their latest CD entitled “Give Yourself Away” so I will take the time now to write a short review.

I would give this CD a 4.5 out of 5 stars. Most of the material is more modern worship oriented. The opening Song “Rise” is where the title for the CD comes from:

“If you choose to love / To know that the call / Is to give all you are / To give love away, away / Rise, rise, people of love rise / People of love rise, give yourself away.”

Robbie Seay’s voice is expressive and the lyrics are thoughtful and joyful at the same time. It is not filled with trite religiosity which is refreshing in a modern worship CD. Take the time to go to their myspace account and listen to 4 songs there. I think most of you will enjoy this CD as well.

Sounds a lot like Reliant K, with milder guitar work. I'm going to get it tomorrow, thanks.
