Cleveland Rocks Solid

In a genre where the message from song to song and from artist to artist is essentially the same, it takes a sound to stand out. Re-enter Ashley Cleveland. The two-time Grammy winner for Best Rock Gospel Album returns to the airwaves with Before the Daylight’s Shot, a collection that showcases her strong vocal prowess and musical muscle. Cleveland’s band is comfortable rockin’ with a classic (a bluesy take on Stevie Wonder’s Higher Ground) and with the introspective (Streams of Mercy). Ashley’s voice is in fine form throughout the CD, harkening a touch of Sarah McLaughlin on The Blessing and Roll Away the Stone (which is not a cover of the Ian Hunter song, as might be assumed). The band puts forth some meaty rock grooves on Satisfied with Drowning, and Ashley matches the band’s passion on the straight-forward and simply titled I Need Jesus. The multiple Dove award winning Cleveland was the first woman to be nominated and win the Rock Gospel Album Category in 1996 for Lesson of Love. She turned the trick again in 1999 with You Are There. Taken as a whole, the CD provides a fine counterpoint to the slickly produced Christian Pop/Rock that dominates today’s airwaves. There’s a rough edge to the guitars and a knowing grittiness to Cleveland’s voice that will appeal to those that may find much of the current contemporary Christian music a bit antiseptic. Being a Christian these days can be rough and tumble (who said it wouldn’t be?), and Ashley’s musical toughness is an appropriate soundtrack to the times that lie ahead.

From the Heart

I guess the "Kids" don't get it. This lady rocks with talent and soul. That's why she won the Grammy. She has real musicians behind her who don't have to tune their guitars to an open tuning so that they can play with 2 fingers. They can actually play with 4 fingers. This is pure rock with a Christian message. Not a plastic studio production of sampled noises and quadrupled voice tracks. Keep on Rockin Ashley. You have a new fan.
