After a successful indie release in 2004 and two national tours, Our Heart's Hero gained the attention of Toby Mac and his label, Goatee Records. Shortly thereafter, September 2007 saw the release of their national, self-titled debut. With their debut, the band steps into the musical spotlight with their "spirited" version of vertically-oriented pop/modern rock.
From the compelling cadence of the first three tracks, through the affecting piano and string enhanced melodies of "Broken," "Every Breath" and "Alive" clear through to the closer, "Angel's Song," Our Heart's Hero creates a sonic testament to God that is nothing less than admirably wholehearted. The band's "desires to see kids encouraged and inspired to make their life count for something greater; to look past what the world might have them settle for and allow God to take control" is indelibly stamped on each song of this project.
Much like Rush of Fools, this four piece outfit (successfully) blends a youthful passion for God with superb musicianship and loads of polished talent. If encouraging and, dare I say it- fun, pop/modern rock along the lines of Storyside:b, Mainstay, Wavorly, Everyday Sunday, and Lifehouse, is what populates your ipod's playlist, then Our Heart's Hero should be there too.

I love Our Hearts Hero. they've got an amazing sound. but what really amazed me was how they just come up to the people who come to their concerts, and just talk to them. but this CD is great.
