Singer/songwriter Tim Drisdelle has been surrounded by music his entire life in various aspects. Growing up in a musical family has shaped him as an aspiring artist, and leading worship at his home church has opened the doors for him to use his creativity and songwriting to glorify the Lord. After releasing a handful of singles over the past few years, Drisdelle is now attempting his hand at life as a recording artist. In November of last year, the Canadian-born singer released his first EP (and the first part of a double EP), Heights. We start with "Falling Into Beautiful," an energetic pop rock song that aims to instantly grab the listener's attention. Though Drisdelle cites a wide variety of influences, this track would fit very well on a playlist with bands like The Afters and Hawk Nelson (post-Jason Dunn). "Never Alone" drops the tempo a bit and places a little more emphasis on piano and synth without completely drowning out the rock instruments. The slower tempo fits with the more contemplative nature of the song, as Drisdelle faithfully recalls Jesus' presence in the darker times of life: "When darkness falls and there's no one in sight, come and show me a light, I've got nothing to hide, when fears hold on and got me up in the night, I'm not far off from home, no I am never alone." In the ballad "Finally," Drisdelle celebrates the great love of Jesus as He breaks us free from the bondage of sin. The anthemic song would be a perfect fit for CCM radio; if Drisdelle seeks any airplay, this would be the song to shop around. The pace picks back up for the closer, "Where Do I Go?" Channeling Maroon 5, the song has acoustic pop verses and a dancey chorus. The song ends the EP on the same lighthearted theme of hope in Christ. Because of that, this EP would serve as a great way to lift your spirits as a believer who may be having a difficult time finding peace or purpose in life. And musically, Drisdelle's Heights EP can and will find a loving home in the library of many CCM and contemporary pop fans.
