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.
