Though just introduced to the world at large, those already familiar with the Seattle-based Mr. & Mrs. Something can already attest to their folksy, intimate storytelling over gentle harmonies. On this first ever long player, the husband/wife duo enlists Grammy winning producer Mitch Dane (Jars of Clay, JJ Heller), who takes an understated, almost living room-ready approach to these soft-spoken songs. From the fiddle and banjo-flanked opener “Your Eyes” through the acoustic closer “What Do You See?,” the couple takes listeners on a virtual trip through their diaries, often times navigating the waters of uncertainly, but always trusting in God’s provision. As a result, Setting Sail shows the vulnerable side of these co-songwriters, but in the process, also has the potential to be highly relatable for those who fully dive into the journey.
