EDITORS’ NOTES

On their sophomore album Stories, Addison Road confronts spiritual redemption amidst the chaos of daily living. In 2009, the Christian pop/rock quintet found their confidence tested after losing all of their possessions in a vehicle fire while struggling with an assortment of family issues. “Fight Another Day” (written by TobyMac) sets the tone for the album with its buoyant melody and encouraging message. Lead singer Jenny Simmons delivers tunes like “Won’t Let Me Go” and “Change In the Making” in a resolute yet vulnerable spirit, touching upon everyday troubles while reaching out for salvation. “Show Me Life” and “Where It All Begins” joyfully embrace God’s love, while “This Little Light” speaks to the bond between parents and children. The music here possesses both sparkle and drive, combining acoustic and electric textures with a strong groove quotient. Retro synthesizer touches add extra tingle to “Don’t Wait” and similar tracks. Addison Road wraps up Stories with the swaying, R&B inflected “My Story,” underscoring the note of renewal that runs through the entire album.

About Addison Road

Addison Road's combination of alternative pop/rock and Christian sensibilities took root in 2001, when Baylor University students Jenny Chisolm and Ryan Simmons (who later married) were approached with a lucrative offer to play a youth group event. Although the two did not have a band, they quickly assembled a lineup comprised of bassist Travis Lawrence, drummer Jeff Sutton, and guitarist Ryan Gregg. The gig was successful, and Addison Road continued onward as a quintet, relocating to Dallas after graduation to hone their songwriting skills and lead worship at a local church. With Jenny Simmons' vocals at the forefront, the band toured relentlessly and released three independent recordings (Always Loved You, Breaking Beautifully, and Some Kind of Spark) before signing with the Christian label INO Records in 2007. Their self-titled debut for INO arrived the following March, buoyed by the success of "All That Matters" on the country's Christian charts. A second album, Stories, followed in 2010. ~ Andrew Leahey
