While some artists write songs for fame and glory, and others do it to make a living, some do it for the sheer love of just doing it. Thats what Davey T Hamilton does, and in 2020, its led him to his newest project, God Fearing Rockstar, an album full of what he affectionately calls pop-grass and posi-rock. More technically speaking, Hamilton's sound is a rather common mix of southern rock and country. On top of that, Hamiltons voice sounds very influenced by 80s hair metal vocalists. This combination results in tracks like Strong Winds and Better Life, which really remind me of mid- to late-career Bon Jovi. There also seems to be some Leona Lewis influence as well, unexpectedly enough, as the verses of Gonna Praise You borrow the melody of the verses of the hit Bleeding Love. Lewis song is decidedly non-country, but Hamilton does well in transitioning the melody into a new genre. He also does a great job of building up the listener and bringing praise to God's name, which is where the posi-rock label comes in. In Man I Am, Hamilton gives the credit to God, singing So I am the man I am because You were the man You were. Similarly, Gonna Praise You is his simple offering of praise for changing his life: I looked around everywhere but I couldnt find / simple satisfaction and peace of mind / I was going crazy, running round in circles / then You came along like a thief in the night / and You stole my heart with Your love and Your light / now theres only one thing left to do / Im gonna praise You. The album isnt afraid to question things, like in Hey God and We Wanna Believe, but the majority of the album is spent on thankfulness and joy. God Fearing Rockstar is not an album that breaks ground or that attempts to redefine any genres; its just an album of gratitude from a man who has been changed by the love of Jesus.
