Finding Yourself | Posted October 20, 2010

Indie group About A Mile is an acoustic-influenced, rock trio taking cues from the likes of Bon Jovi, Creed, Daughtry and Lifehouse. Comprised of brothers Luke (bass), Levi (drums) and Adam Klute (guitars/vocals), the bandís self-produced and distributed album Find Yourself are characterized by adeptly executed, archetypal modern rock grounded by mature lyrics served up with professional polish by technically proficient production.

The strength of the 14 songs of Find Yourself are the brothersí obvious passion and determination to create songs that are substantive on both a spiritual and emotional level, as well as demonstrative of their love for rock music. Adamís vocals bring to mind Trainís Pat Monahan, while Luke & Levi reinforce his guitar work with a strong backbone of substantial, rhythmic beats. Mark my words, a label deal and nationally-distributed release from the brothersí Klute are just around the corner. Visit the bandís website at myspace or itunes to download the album.

Not long ago I went to a CD release party for a band I have heard several times now. As I found out when I got there it was a CD release Party for two bands. About a Mile was the "Other Band" I had never heard them before that night and I had really showed up to support the other band. I was really surprised by About A Mile, from the time they took the stage I knew I was going to be writing this review. I am just sorry that it has taken me so long to do just that. About A Mile is made up of 3 brothers - Adam, Levi, and Luke. The name is taken from the Idea the Christ had to carry the Cross - About a Mile. I was lucky enough to get hold of a nice video camera and you can check out some of the video over at jtindie.com

From the very beginning of the CD I am taken by the talent of these three brothers. With all First CD offerings, I don't expect to be blown away. Talent is something that matures over time. While I wasn't blown away I was surprised at just how enjoyable this CD is overall. With a good acoustic styling "About A Mile" lets you enjoy the music without feeling over-run by it. That is not to say that "Find yourself" is all lightness and rainbows. With their title track, "Find Yourself" the bands shows just a bit of the chops I saw in their live performance.

One thing that can be a downfall of this style of music is that the style itself can be rather narrow and I did find that several of the songs on the CD were similar to each other. I also noticed that while the guitarist and vocalist (Adam) is an incredibly talented guitarist (one go through the Cd will convince you of this) I feel that the CD is relying on his talent. This is not to say that the other brothers in the group, Levi and Luke are not talented, They are very talented in their own right, The Cd itself is a very guitar driven CD and i would of like to have heard more from the others in the way of Drum and Bass. this is something I believe is partly due to the youth of the members.

One of the things that always pleases me is that the music is overtly and un-ashamedly Christian. Even to the point of having a song on the CD called "Unashamed". I took the time to transcribe a bit of the song so you can see for yourself.

Ill follow you where ever you may lead me
not afraid to be the servant I've become
now I stand alone before you in your grace
I want everyone to know I'm not ashamed

You're the air that I've been breathing
The only truth that I'm believing
And I can't live without you anymore!
I don't want to hide the fact that I need you
Wanna be held in your arms let the world see
That I believe in Jesus!

I'm not ashamed!

Overall I have to say that this CD is one of the Strongest freshmen Indie Cd's I have heard. I look forward to hearing what these three can accomplish as they mature and grow into the Gifts and talents that they clearly posses.

I am giving this Cd a 3.75 out of 5.0 on the Indie Scale. The Cd itself is well produced and the talent of the band are clear. While Find Yourself may not be on the "Most Played" section of my MP3 player the Cd is something I find myself rediscovering on the Player and enjoying anew each time.
