Remember the first time you heard Keith Green? You knew you were listening to a minister who used music to get his message across, not an entertainer. That's the same feeling you'll get when listening to Great River Road. This was my introduction to Jason Upton, and I have to say, I was blown away. Almost every song on this CD will stop you in your tracks to listen. I have over 500 CDs, and I can safely say this one is my choice when I need something to help me find God in my day-to-day busy-ness. This is not mainstream radio music, as most of the tracks are well over 5 minutes long, but this is ministry.

Stand out tracks here are "When It Thunders" (rerecorded from a previous release) and "Return to Me", a look at the prodigal's story from the eyes of his father. Jason's American Indian heritage is seen throughout this CD thanks to chants, drums, and flutes sprinkled throughout the songs. Nothing overpowering, but rather icing on the cake.

The only out of place track here is "You Are The One", which is a cover of an old Keith Green song. The laid-back style of the CD doesn't lend itself well to ending with this peppy tune. Still, it's the only mistake on this otherwise perfect worship experience. This gets my highest recommendation for times of quiet reflection and personal worship.

Love Jason Upton's "Great River Road". The title track is beautiful and uniquely different from most music you hear.

The native american music influence was gripping. I love the story behind this song, as my son is adopted also. Jason Upton's music reveals great intimacy with the Father. My eyes were not dry while listening to this CD.

Jason Upton's worship is anointed! We have played Great River Road in several settings involving healing for Native Americans and situations where God's healing is needed. A cry for justice and the healing of ancient wounds is coming forth in our Nation and we believe this CD is a prophetic sound to activate His power for the journey.

I would really recommend this album particularly to anyone needing spiritual or emotional healing or those who enjoy "soaking" types of music. Jason Upton is an anointed musician and singer and I believe that this album perhaps more than any other brings this out while also being enjoyable to listen to. It carried me through some difficult times and I trust and pray that it will do so for others as well.

At first I didn't much like this CD. You see, I received it the day after receiving Trusting The Angels, which is now my all time favorite Upton CD. This one, for me, doesn't compare. However, this has REALLY grown on me and a few of the tracks get played in heavy rotation.

This was an excellent worship CD with wonderful Native American tones. Very deep with a healing message. I loved it. I bought a copy for my nephew and he was in tears, because it moved him deeply.

Ah jason... there's not a soul like him out there anywhere. This collection is simple and wonderful. The cover and the melodious music make me want to be alone on a snowy hillside in a cabin, worshiping our King. An excellent and hard to find CD from a great worshipper.

This is a beautiful collection of worship songs that speaks from the heart of God! Thank you Jason for caring to write real worship music. This is not for entertainment, but for the enrichment of the soul and to connect to geat power.

If you are looking at this cd, you are probably already a Jason Upton fan and you already know this cd will be filled with the spirit. The Native influence is awesome. I fully recommend it as one of the best worship cd's ever.
