With a heart for music from a young age, Nashville's own Logan Peck
has made his first splash in the music industry with his debut EP, On and On
. The EP contains five songs that vary in sound from one another, but don't stray too far outside of a clear comfort zone of radio-ready pop rock and worship. The first track, "Forever Free," is a Celtic folk pop song in the vein of Rend Collective. It's an interesting track, but it's almost indicative of an album that we don't end up getting here, as the sound quickly changes with "Fortress." Along with "I Am Your Child (You Are My Father)" and the title track, "Fortress" shows us the softer balladry of Logan Peck, who seems to be penning songs perfect for Sunday morning worship services at modern churches. The song is a modernized rendition of "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God," albeit with a mix of traditional lyrics and original lyrics from Peck. "Hosanna in the Highest" is a more energetic song, but less like Rend Collective and more like the opening track on a Hillsong Worship live album. I can picture this song ringing through the auditoriums of youth group conferences, as the attendees sing "Hosanna, hosanna in the highest, blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord
." Logan Peck's On and On
EP features clean production and smooth vocals, with more of an emphasis on using his musical talents to worship the Lord than creating something listeners have never heard before. It's a solid EP to add to your collection of songs to get you thinking about and praising Jesus.
