Jadon Lavik has performed on numerous Saddleback Church albums and sings in front of nearly 20,000 parishioners every weekend when combining all the services which has truly been an education in praise directed ministry. All those goods, combined with an incredibly appealing voice, cozy croon and down to earth demeanor drew attention from BEC Recordings and his official recording career was born. After releasing "Moving On Faith" in 2004 to critical acclaim, consistent touring and the meteoric single "What If", the stage was set for a much anticipated follow-up found in "Life On the Inside". Last year, Jadon released the praise & worship album "Roots Run Deep" and now he is releasing "The Road", an acoustic collection.

First song "Hear Our Song" is a simple yet passionate plea of praise with these worshipful lyrics: "Father hear our song, A song of praise to the worthy one, In joyous surrender With our eyes fixed on You, May our lives bring you glory to serve you in all that we do". The acoustic version of "Moving On Faith" reminded me of "Tell Me" by Josh Wilson. Jadon's version of "Come Thou Fount" is done as though he's in my living room leading worship and I can't help but sing along in worship to the all-time great hymn. "Father" was a hit song from "Life On the Inside" and this stripped down version really captures the passion of this prayer-song with the sincere lyrics: " I cry out and You answer, I cry out and You answer, Father I know You listen when I pray, Father would You hear these simple words I say". Such song and stylistic explanations further lay the ground work for the overarching meaning of the song "On The Outside".

My familiarity with Jadon Lavik extended no further than recognizing his song "What If," which I enjoyed for its exploration of works versus grace a few years back. Lavik has released 2 full-length studio albums (2005's Moving on Faith and 2006's Life on the Inside) as well as a collection of hymns on Roots Run Deep (2008). His acoustic pop sound, combined with a solid theological grounding, has gained him a modest following. Now, he's stripped things completely down on The Road Acoustic, capturing a truly intimate sound with just his voice, some sparse backup vocals, and a couple guitars.

When I first started listening to this album, I was in my car on the way somewhere, not exactly fully engaged in the music. I wasn't hugely impressed based on that listen. In fact, I thought it was somewhat boring. The problem, I discovered, wasn't the music so much as it was me. This is simply music you need to be prepared to listen to, or least you have to be in the mood to slow down and contemplate a little. As I said, there are no bells and whistles here; it's just acoustic guitars, a couple voices, and the content of the songs. It really does an admirable job capturing that elusive "coffeehouse" feel. It's not a live show recording, but it sure feels like one at times.

As I said, I hadn't heard Lavik's earlier stuff which makes up a lot of this collection. Two of my favorites, however, were from Roots Run Deep: "Come Thou Fount" and "Wonderous Love." His takes on these classics are fantastic, adding enough acoustic pop flair without trampling on the reverence present in the hymns. He's just bringing them to a new generation. Another standout was clearly "Father.

I heard Jadon on the radio while in a restaurant. I had to have his album. If you love songs about the Lord, you will love the music of Jadon Lavik.
