Freewind, Life Is a Highway

Freewind
Life Is a Highway

Street Date: 2006
Style: Acoustic / Folk
Artist Website: MySpace.com


Freewind, an acoustic duo from South Jersey, is bringing it old school! Life is a Highway is a collection of songs from the pen of Rick Sawyer, who also performs the vocals on the record. These songs sound like they are twenty-five years old... because they are. With many of the songs written and recorded originally in the 1980's, these songs deserve to be considered within that context. This is a record that holds appeal for fans of Michael Card or Bob Bennett, as it fits the same acoustic folk mold, with blatantly evangelical and worshipful lyrics. As a stand alone piece, the record is just "passable," but I am sure that after seeing Freewind at one of their live coffeehouse shows, the songs would come to life a bit more.
