Wherever I Go (Acoustic Sessions) [edit]
by Dan Bremnes | Genre: AC/Inspo | Release Date: July 17, 2020

"Making Wherever I Go was one of the most incredible experiences of my life," shares Bremnes. "I loved the production we came up with, but also wanted to show a different side of these songs; I wanted to go back to the honest roots of where they were born. Just me and a guitar or a piano."

Of the 10-song album, fans can expect upcoming tracks, "Searching For Something (Acoustic)," and "Beautiful (Acoustic)," to drop over the next month in anticipation of the album release, joining previously released track "Up Again (Acoustic Mix)," and today's release, "The Way (Acoustic)." Fans will also see Bremnes' inclusion of five special guest artists on the album, including Mike Donehey, Stars Go Dim, Love & The Outcome, Meredith Andrews, and Bremnes' wife, Britt Bremnes.

Simply Stunning | Posted July 15, 2020
What You Need to Know
Dan Bremnes entered the music scene professionally 10 years ago, but he has actually been playing music since he was three years old. He originally wanted to be a drummer, until he branched out in his teen years to guitar playing and songwriting. He found that he enjoyed all of it. At first, he was skeptical of the idea of playing Christian music for a living. However, God came through with some heavenly confirmation and it was set. Now, he has released four albums, a documentary, and completed Winter Jam, Christian music's largest annual tour. He has also toured with bands like Jars of Clay and MercyMe. 

What it Sounds Like
When I saw that Dan's latest, Wherever I Go (Acoustic Sessions) were acoustic sessions, I thought I had the sound immediately figured out. Acoustic simply means a guitar and singing, right? It wasn't until I took 10 minutes to sit down and just focus on what was coming through my headphones that I found out I have a lot to learn. I realized that this record holds so much more than a voice and a guitar. It's a beautiful melody of a keyboard, light drums, a soulful voice, and, of course, the guitar chords. As for the guitar itself, I loved how the chords carried the songs, but individual notes accentuated the most important lyrics.

Spiritual Highlights
Through these 10 songs, Dan hits on a lot of biblical points and messages. The one that stood out the most was in the song "The Way (Acoustic)." Dan reminds us that we don't always get what we want, but we have God and that's enough. We're blessed to get the opportunity to bask in the presence of a God who loves us so much. “How You Love Me (Acoustic)” builds on a common awe factor of Christianity. How does God love us so much when we're so broken? He keeps coming back and for that reason we praise Him. My favorite lyrical message is in "The Way (Acoustic)" when Dan says, “You never let me go even when it hurts.” Amen.

Best Song on the Record
I always admit a little bias to songs with heavy keys and drums because I play both instruments. Therefore, I immediately fell in love with “Wherever I Go (Acoustic).” It has a beautiful piano introduction and gentle cymbals throughout the song. I heard the previous, more poppy, version of the song. It's different, yet perfect in its own way. "Wherever I Go (Acoustic)" has an amazing message of hope. It reminds us that God is always with us--no matter where we go. The song serves as a reminder of His love that I personally needed, so I appreciated the thoughtful lyrics.

For Fans Of:
Austin French, Brandon Heath, Zach Williams, Crowder

Final Word: 
Wherever I Go (Acoustic Sessions) contains many questions and answers, all of them relatable. Dan has been providing hope and joy through his music for 10 years and this album is no different. Dan said previously that even though we claim our dreams, they are actually God's: "He made You. You are a dream. You're a walking dream." I love that reminder. His whole heart went into this project; these acoustic sessions are so much more than just simply "a guitar and singing." They are a demonstration of his passion and faith and the only simple thing about it is that I "simply" loved it.
