Fall Into Quality Music

Jason Fowler has quite the backstory of what he's overcome to reach the point where he's releasing his Christian debut, I Fall In. The music carries the maturity of a seasoned artist, proving his prior experience both in mainstream rock and roll and in life.
I was pleasantly surprised with how enjoyable and diverse this short 9-track collection of songs is. Dabbling in rock, pop and contemporary sounds, Fowler carries some groovy hooks and pounding sonic beats. Opener "Come Alive" is one of those songs that begs to be an arena rock set opener. "Rise Up" is another offering of the high-octane rock energy that Fowler excels at.
But hooky pop is on the menu too, as "You Give Me A Reason" effectively illustrates. There's a lush piano hook and an impactful vocal performance by Fowler. "Family" is an unplugged duet with Leigh Nash that showcases that Fowler can also be a master of the acoustic folk sound. The finale title track carries just a bit of that slow-building epic closer sound to lift up a worshipful and peaceful duet track, again keeping the album diverse and enticing.
The Bottom Line: While nothing here takes too many sonic or lyrical risks, this album is simply flat-out quality music, which for a debut project can't be called anything less than a success.
