Audio Review: Jeremy & Rachel Chupp – Breakthrough

by | May 29, 2019 | CD Reviews, Reviews

Jeremy & Rachel Chupp’s latest CD titled Breakthrough features several familiar classics including “I Know Who Holds Tomorrow”, “He Is Mine”, “In The Highways”, and “Patching It Up.” Producer Jeremy Peace adds a third vocal harmony part to most choruses, making them sound more like a trio than a duo. The couple is based in Fort Valley, Georgia.

Pros: Most arrangements on Breakthrough feature Rachel and work to her strengths which include a pleasant mid-range vocal tone. “Patching It Up” is my favorite track featuring Rachel followed by “I Know Who Holds Tomorrow.”

Cons: The EQ setting on the opening track, “It Could’ve Been Me,” stifles several frequencies that did not need to be diminished, giving it an AM radio quality (that I assume was unintentional). On “Waitin’ For The Master,” the finger snaps and bass guitar are awkward. Dropping both in favor of an a cappella arrangement would have been an improvement.
