AC John Waller Crazy Faith (City of Peace Media) FOR FANS OF: Matthew West, Tenth Avenue North, Warren Barfield QQQQ Now more than a decade removed from According To John, former front man John Waller is a firmly established solo force who ranks right up there as one of today’s top contemporary Christian troubadours. His commitment to soul-stirring lyrics continues throughout Crazy Faith, which besides boasting the proactive title track (also from the forthcoming War Room film), includes a notable new batch of acoustic guitar and piano-anchored tunes, plus bonus live recordings of “While I’m Waiting” and “As For Me And My House.” –Andy Argyrakis WE LIKE: “Crazy Faith” Indie Laura Kaczor Restore Me (LifeThirst Music) FOR FANS OF: Francesca Battistelli, Christy Nockels, Caedmon’s Call QQQ For Laura Kaczor’s fourth full- length album, the Nashville, TN singer/songwriter offers a collection of songs built on the foundations of hope, faith, and strength found in Jesus. Following a difficult season, including a successful open heart surgery for Kaczor’s infant son and the loss of a close friend, Restore Me reestablishes the promises of Christ’s protection and restoration for all. Submitted as acoustic originals, Dove Award winning producer Ian Eskelin was brought in to round out another solid effort for this Pennsylvania native. –Kevin Sparkman WE LIKE: “If The Path Was Straight” CCMMagazine.com John Mark & Sarah McMillan You Are the Avalanche EP (Lionhawk) FOR FANS OF: Gungor, All Sons & Daughters, The Lone Bellow QQQQ The first-ever joint release from husband and wife John Mark and Sarah McMillan is steeped in hopeful, bright refrains that fill this short five-song set. I Am The Avalanche maintains the intensity and aggression of Mark’s brilliant Borderland, while McMillan’s vocals help to balance the effect on songs like “Glorious Things,” which features a beautiful sing-along refrain of “I will say it is true/ Your love is not removed.” Consider this EP a lovely edition to any collection. –Matt Conner WE LIKE: “The Goodness”
