Editorial Reviews

Singer-songwriter duo Jeremy and Rebecca offer up a debut album showcasing a sophisticated blend of musical styles, centered around a fresh, yet organic sound. What We Leave Behind effortlessly weaves together stylistic leanings; such as pop, disco, rock, soul, country, and jazz; with such confidence and appeal that the end result is an entirely engaging and remarkably cohesive collection of songs, each with classic potential. While featuring large, at times cinematic production, the album remains accessible and poignant, containing a lyrical beauty and optimism that truly inspires. Having the polish and scope of a major label project, while maintaining the heart and courage of an indie release, this is one album not to leave behind.

To be perfectly honest I was quite ready to not like this record. But when I inserted the CD into the player, something else happened. I not just liked the record, I loved it. I've never considered myself much of a mainstream kind of guy, but I recognize talent when I hear it, and it is definitely here.

The Hendricksons set out to produce and finance this entire project without the backing of a major record label even though it sounds as if it were. Mr. Hendrickson jokes the two major investors for their project were MasterCard and Visa.

Musically this duo is all over the place. Nine times out of ten, I'd say there is evidence of a severe identity crisis present on this recording. However, these songs are all so well written, so well produced, and most importantly, so well performed, it all works to come together to create something that sounds like it should all be together. Jeremy Hendrickson has somehow infused all these different genres; blues, jazz, modern country, rock, and pop to form some powerfully upbeat music that we can all enjoy. Mr. Hendrickson's talent for writing and producing plays a huge role for the seemingly seamless flow of the songs from one genre to the next. This is truly an amazing accomplishment for a seasoned veteran let alone someone trying to break through.

I believe a major reason for their success in meeting their goal of creating such a broad project, was the fact they were able to entice a select group of musicians, arrangers, engineers, and vocalists who have worked with major recording artists such as Faith Hill, Rascal Flatts, John Mayer, Mary J. Blige, Josh Groban, Mariah Carey, Eric Clapton, and Chicago. The production values always present on these artist's recordings is present in this work as well.

The husband/wife team of Jeremy and Rebecca Hendrickson have put together a very polished collection of Jeremy's original tunes. What We Leave Behind, their debut album, showcases the broad vision that this talented couple has and the industry connections they have to produce it. They are joined in this endeavor by musicians, vocalists, arrangers, and engineers who have worked with Eric Clapton, Faith Hill, Rascal Flatts, John Mayer, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Josh Groban, and Chicago. That pool of talent and the versatility of the Hendricksons has created a sampling of the best this couple has to offer, but it also contributes to some genre confusion.

The album is a mixture of the stylings of pure country, R&B, gospel-laced blues, pop/rock, alt country, music theater, and the Christian contemporary. The songs are intricate, beautiful song poems that deal with love, relationships, inspiration, and live issues. And, Rebecca's rich, soaring voice carries every single style. Even the addition of Jeremy's skilled vocals on three duets and a solo or two are outstanding. And, the instrumental and vocal backup, including a gospel choir, are stellar.

I absolutely loved this album, especially the title cut, "What We Leave Behind." This stirring gospel blues tune that moves into R&B asks a timeless question about finding meaning in your life. Equally thoughtful, "Straight and Narrow" speaks of difficult life choices and "Tallest Tree"offers one man's incentive to be an inspiration to those he loves. I even enjoyed the love songs. Some were playful, some were sensual, and some were joyful. There were even songs like "Why Strive" and "Rise and Shine" that could have been on a movie soundtrack and sung by Whitney Houston---though Rebecca is outstanding delivering them.

He's a marketing director. She's an Early Childhood Special Education Teacher. They're married and have a family. One could understand if Jeremy & Rebecca Hendrickson never quite had time for a music career, but this is no ordinary duo. Jeremy & Rebecca set out to write songs with positive themes and uplifting content/sounds; the same sort of appeal that went into old time variety shows and family movies. The sounds are updated for today, but the spirit is good old fashioned family entertainment. What We Leave Behind is a stunning album of feel good moments buoyed by Jeremy Hendrickson's solid songwriting and Rebecca Hendrickson's dazzling voice.

Jeremy & Rebecca created What We Leave Behind without financial backing from a label or anyone else, relying on Visa and MasterCard to see the album completed. Working from a wish-list of music veterans, Jeremy & Rebecca managed to put together a recording ensemble of folks who've previously worked with the likes of Eric Clapton, Mariah Carey, Faith Hill, John Mayer, Chicago, Mary J. Blige and Rascal Flatts. In much the same way that an independent film production can create a sense of magic among cast and crew, something special occurred in the process of recording What We Leave Behind. The sense of joy that flows off the CD is accompanied by a cohesion that goes beyond professional into personal.

What We Leave Behind opens with Fool, a rockin' country love song about getting caught up in love. Rebecca Hendrickson takes lead vocals here and quickly proves to be one of the most dynamic country vocalists I've heard in a while. With a sultry, powerful voice that can cross the lines from country to R&B while passing through Rock, Jazz and The Blues, Rebecca could sing the phone book and have folks lined up to listen.
