CD Rated: Joyful Hearts-Redeemed

Joyful Hearts – Redeemed

3 Stars

Redeemed is an independently produced CD covering nine well-known songs including Greater Vision’s “He Is To Me,” Legacy V’s “I Stand Redeemed,” Signature Sounds’ “Calvary Answers For Me,” and the Kingsmen’s “Glory Road.” I was unfamiliar with one song, so it may be new. The Joyful Hearts trio has a very good, even vocal blend. They approximate the original performances to good effect, but do very little to put their own stamp on any of these songs. Their music tracks are pretty good (though not 100% first-rate). In a few spots, the mix feels uneven. This group has some promising potential, though. The vocal talent is there. If they can afford to hire a creative dictator to sit in the producer’s chair next time around and secure some good original material, they might be label material.
