Editors’ Notes

Jennifer Knapp emerged as a major Christian music talent with the 1997 release of Kansas, an album’s worth of uncommonly forceful and self-revelatory folk-rock tunes. After several independent releases, the guitar-wielding singer/songwriter was taken under the wing of Mark Stuart (lead singer with Audio Adrenaline) and given the wider exposure she deserved. Knapp used this opportunity to declare her faith in earthy, heartfelt terms, glancing back at her troubled teenaged years as she sings hosannas to her Savior. The music here is insistent and arresting, carried by Knapp’s driving guitar and aggressive yet nuanced vocals. The passionate reverence found in “Undo Me” typifies the spiritual fire underlying this album. The reggae-inflected “Romans,” the crisply rocking “Whole Again,” and the gently contemplative “Faithful to Me” are sonically diverse, yet drawn from the same well of devotion. Stuart’s production keeps the sound direct and clean, with strings and woodwinds added for a Celtic flavor. Overall, the album invites comparisons with Tracy Chapman and the Indigo Girls’ best work. As an expression of a young believer’s commitment to Christ, Kansas is tough to beat.

Customer Reviews

Such a brave move!

Really people? You give up on an artist that quickly! The church is supposed to love and support! Not kick sinners out on the curb! She is being honest with herself and with her fans. Let the Holy Spirit bring conviction. It makes me sick to hear Christians say one thing, and then do the opposite. We have all fallen short! And no sin is greater than any other in the eyes of the Lord! I, for one, can not wait for her new album.

She never lets me down

I've been a fan for a while. Her voice is amazing, real, and unique, but on top of that the lyrics ring true. She tells a story with each song while praising the Alpha Omega. It's a great album that you don't have to skip through

Jennifer Knapp is brave!

I enjoyed her music when I was in highschool and even went to a concert. She is a blessed voice from God. It takes guts to come back, and be honest with your fans, what would "christians" have her do, come back with a CD and lie about who she is? Good for you Jennifer Knapp, welcome back to music, and don't let the haters get you down!!

In support I am buying all your CDs on iTunes
