Biography

From their inception, Selah has always been synonymous with hymns. In fact, the understated beauty of the trio’s 1999 debut, Be Still My Soul (Curb), helped initiate a hymn revival in Christian music that is still thriving today. Their discography has significantly re-popularized the church’s greatest songs while decorating the popular group with numerous Dove Awards, number one ... Read more in Amazon's Selah Store

I can listen and enjoy for hours any time of day.
Mary Highline
I love beautifully written lyrics - the mix of these classics with the voices of the Selah members and their duet partners is matchless.
N. Hall
This was my first introduction to Selah, and I am so-o-o happy I purchased this CD!

Prime Cuts: Bless the Broken Road (with Melodie Crittenden), I Will Sing of My Redeemer (with Barlowgirl), Gentle Healer (with Amy Perry)

Lead singers who define their group's personas place the entire ensemble in a lucrative position when they decide to depart. This was the predicament Selah faced when Nicol Sponberg had had decided to leave the trio. However, that is only half the group's vexation: country artist Melodie Crittenden who was supposed to be Sponberg's successor left late last year. In a move, albeit a wise one, to divert the attention away from the group's nonplused identity this duets CD was birth. With a heightened spotlight on the duet partners including luminaries such as Jason and Adam of the Crabb Family, Barlowgirl, Nicole Nordeman, Christy Nockels of Watermark, Kim Hill, Plumb among others, this allows Selah to buy time in order to re-construct their identity. This time instead of putting all of one's eggs in a basket, the group members as well as new member Amy Perry share around the microphone.

Musically, "Bless the Broken Road" is still consummate Selah. Their signature palette of hymn-like ballads with a contemporary edge still abound. Unlike many of their peers, these songs are spiritually meaty entrenched with deep theologically truth without resigning to those repetitive nondescript love songs to Jesus. Most spiritually penetrating is "Gentle Healer." The breathtakingly simple melody of this Michael Card ballad basks a carefully nuanced narrative that attests even handedly to the humanity and divinity of Christ. Not a group known to obviate the tough issues, Julie Miller's "All My Tears" (also covered by Jars of Clay) deal unapologetically with the issue of death.

Heard an early release of this newest album. If you are a Selah fan or general fan of Christian music, this album will be a must have! Great new songs along with fantastic performances by some "guest artists". Something for everyone! Selah continues to evolve their music so that it stays current yet provides the hallmark Selah sound that we love!

I got this album knowing Nicol had left the group and was worrying about how much I would like it. No worries left. Yes, her voice is missed, but I think this album of duets with other artists is the perfect intro for Amy Perry. The fantastic Selah harmonies are still here, just a little different sounding. "God Bless the Broken Road" is a title track you can listen to repeatedly. "Gentle Healer," an old Michael Card song, is simply beautiful given the "Selah" treatment. "I Will Sing of My Redeemer" is a new hymn that the group wrote (with an added bonus of Todd Smith's little girls singing at the end). Russ Taff's "Ain't No Grave" is...well, just listen and check that one out! There is also a redo of the hymn "Be Thou Near to Me"--which appeared on Greatest Hymns with Jim Brickman, but this time Amy Perry is the female vocal. My two personal favorites are "Follow Jesus" and the final cut, "Softly and Tenderly"--Allan's duet with Cynthia Clawson. That song alone is worth the price of the CD, but every song on here is wonderful. Also, a great feature with Selah albums are the copious liner notes. You won't regret buying this!

My first introduction to Selah was hearing "It Is Well With My Soul" on the radio. The Selah era with Nicole (Selah I) was VERY, VERY good.

The first time I saw Selah in concert was with Melodie Crittenden (Selah II). It was different from Selah I, but it was still VERY, VERY good.

Now I get to hear them with various other artists (including Amy Perry, who's addition creates Selah III). Once again, it's different from before, but it is still VERY, VERY good.

Don't buy this CD expecting to hear Selah as it was with Nicole or Melodie (even though Melodie has a cut on the CD).

What you do get when you buy this CD is the opportunity to hear Todd and Allan sing with some of the top female Christian vocalists out there. For me, it was well worth the money.

B.T.W. A previous reviewer stated ... "Jason and Adam of the Crabb Family together with Todd Smith just do not have the soul to undertake this [Ain't No Grave] bluesy Gospel tune." I respectfully have to disagree. They nail this song. I didn't realize this song was included on the CD when I bought it. If I had, "Ain't No Grave" would've been reason enough to make the purchase.

I will probably always be one to recommend a Selah album, because I grew up in a church visited yearly by Nicol and Todd's parents, Congo missionaries Jim and Nancy Smith and used to hear the whole family sing way back when (in fact, I think my parents have an old record of hymns the family put out years ago!). That being said, this album is amazing! I've been listening to it over and over the last couple of weeks, hearing new layers every time. I love beautifully written lyrics - the mix of these classics with the voices of the Selah members and their duet partners is matchless.

At first listen, "Bless the Broken Road" stood out as my favorite, but then I listened more closely to "All My Tears," which I'd surprisingly never heard before. Now it stands out as my favorite on the album, esp. with Kim Hill's folksy sound, and one of my favorite songs ever.

Completely a stand-out album - so much depth and breadth.

Oh - and for those that didn't know, Nicol stepped out to raise her family and support her husband at Moody Bible Institute's grad school. She's worked some on solo stuff, too.
