Editorial Reviews

"I won't be caged to the status quo. I'm not afraid to stand and say what people won't." This lyric, taken from the song "Get Up Get Out," off of Rhett Walker Band's debut album, Come To The River, is one of several clues that this is not going to be your typical Christian music band or album. With a bold message reminiscent of Rich Mullins, Keith Green plus contemporaries including Casting Crowns and southern and rock influences like Third Day, NEEDTOBREATHE, The Black Crowes and Tom Petty, Rhett Walker Band not only stands out among the pack but once heard, cannot be forgotten.

The songs on Come To The River have a raw honesty not usually heard and cover relatable themes of grace, redemption and mercy. The album's first single, "When Mercy Found Me," tells Rhett's story of a life headed in a wrong direction compounded with choices that were breaking him which share how mercy and grace radically changed his path and gave him freedom. Other stand-out songs include the opener, "Gonna Be Alright," the haunting, "Brother" and the title track, "Come To The River."

A band basing its ministry approach on the tried but true "Prodigal Son" back-story - Walker wandered quite a bit in his teen years only to return to the faith of his childhood, in his early 20's - The Rhett Walker Band fly their confederate musical flag high on Come to the River, their Essential records debut. With material ranging from Southern rock anthems to Dixie fried folk ballads, it is RWB's adeptness at the latter that marks them as a band to watch. The majority of Come to the River is, largely, 'been there, heard that' with almost 3/4ths of the material the type of blazing guitar/mid tempo/southern pop anthem that are Third Day's stock in trade. Yet, when the band strips it down some - like the more recent offerings of Needtobreathe - and fully commits to the folk ethos of the southern musical experience (The lovely title cut, the country inflected "Brother" and the intimately sung, "Singing Stone") they unleash a sonic direction they would be very wise to base their future projects on. That said, the band more than adequately plays a variety of rural genres with equal aplomb and Walker has a voice for the ages...a strong, clear, but extremely emotional instrument that, alone, is worth the price of the album. Come to the River is definitely not a bad first attempt, yet leaves the Rhett Walker Band plenty of room for further growth.

I heard "When Mercy Found Me" on klove and instantly liked it (and wished it were played on radio stations more often). Then I heard the rest of the album. Wow! "When Mercy Found Me"- although great- is their softer, more mainstream appeal song. That means the rest of the album is beast!!! I'm going to buy a physical CD for my father, since he's a rock country fan and there are few unabashed Christians singing awesome rock country songs about Jesus.

I'm a middle-aged female listener and can't believe how much I really love this CD! The lyrics aren't theologically deep but the edginess of the music surprisingly hooked me from the very first song. When I heard "Gonna Be Alright" on the radio for the first time, I knew immediately I wanted to hear this group's other songs. Unfortunately, the CD had not yet been released so I took a risk and pre-ordered it without previewing any other song. I was not disappointed and may even wear the CD out soon!

RWB is smoking hot! "Come To The River" is jam packed with lyrics from the heart as well as melodies that make you wanna turn up the volume and sing along at the top of your lungs. This is a must have for the music lovers library!

Rhett Walker is an amazing singer song writer who walked away from his faith but came back and wrote an awesome album once he gave his heart back to Jesus. Very cool & faith filled CD.

I know this song from the radio...but I purchased the entire Rhett Walker Band album and I would highly suggest it to anyone else! Great messages with a rock edge to the songs!

Good ol' fashion blue collar rock n roll! And Christian too! It is very welcomed indeed and RWB sure does hold promise for all of us southern rockers out there who love Jesus.
