Product Description

After releasing two critically acclaimed discs - Moving on Faith (2004) and Life on the Inside (2006) - and touring alongside nationally known acts like Rebecca St. James and BarlowGirl, Lavik and 's latest effort represents a considerable change in direction musically and thematically as he dives head first into the world of hymns.

_Roots Run Deep_ features a cavalcade of familiar classics such as _Come Thou Fount_, _I Surrender All_, _Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus_, _I Need Thee Every Hour_, _Take My Life_ and _Amazing Grace_, all supported by Lavik and 's sturdy yet seemingly effortless vocals.

Just because the song titles may be recognizable, listeners shouldn and 't expect the melodies to sound too familiar. and #8220;All the arrangements are unique, and some of them don and 't sound much like the originals, and #8221; Lavik explains. and #8220;I composed and produced virtually the whole project, and I worked hard to present my interpretation of each hymn. Roots provides a true representation of who I am. and #8221;

I had heard some of Jadon Lavik before I bought this CD, so I knew what to expect. This album is a great collection of hymns that have been well recorded and modernized to a slight degree. The songs are mellow and upbeat at times, and great to sing along to :). Jadon has a great voice and a very enjoyable style. Definitely a great album to lift the spirit and focus yourself to praise the Lord!

HASH(0xa00a1ce4) out of 5 stars new spins to old songs March 18 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on

Jadon Lavik's new record is refreshing amongst the many modern worship albums that have been released lately. Here we have a collection of untraditionally traditional Sunday morning hymns played in a modern fashion by this singer/songwriter. In listening to it, I was actually hoping to hear more remakes of the old hymns than the 11 that are here. I would've loved to have heard Beautiful Savior or Crown Him With Many Crowns, but oh well, I suppose it can`t be a double CD. Instrumentally, the album is very stripped down with a more coffee shop/acoustic feel to it which I think is a plus for the songs. It's almost exclusively acoustic guitar and piano. The purity of Lavik's smooth crooning adds a nice finishing touch. Blessed Assurance is one of my favorites for this reason, along with it's beautiful message and lullabye-like sway. Don't expect all the hymns to sound as you remember them, if you didn`t think Amazing Grace could be made into a jazz guitar song, you`ll have to hear it! The record grows on you and eventually I think you'll like it as much as I do.

HASH(0xa00a1f0c) out of 5 stars One of my very favorite CDs Feb. 22 2010
By Ben's Mama - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I love love love this album. I've always loved hymns, but Jadon's take on the hymns is modern and fresh without compromising what makes the songs great to begin with. This is one of my go-to CD choices - I've had it since Christmas and I still listen to it several times a week without getting tired of it. If you haven't discovered Jadon Lavik yet and you are a fan of the hymns, buy this CD immediately!

We are made to worship God in;

This is one of the best to bring you into the worship of our Father through Jesus, by the power of the Holy Spirit!

Simply great! Good job Jadon!
