Jody McBrayer – ‘Keep Breathing’ album review

Jody McBrayer, CCM Magazine - imageBetween extensive time in the vocal troupe Truth and contemporary pop hit makers Avalon, Jody McBrayer is one of the most accomplished singers in all of Christian music. Though it’s been quite some time since we last heard from the tenor, he’s stayed active as a worship leader and also triumphed over a rare heart condition, all of which contributes to this hopeful and deeply personal collection. Fans of those past acts and solo projects will surely gravitate to his rich and sometimes soulful performances spread across gorgeous arrangements, all of which help drive home the powerful messages of “Good To Be Home,” “Me,” “With Each Borrowed Breath” and “When We Look Back.” Any of the above would’ve fit right beside his memorable material from the ‘90s, though they avoid sounding dated thanks to McBrayer’s well-preserved voice that transcends specific eras.
