Album length: 11 tracks: 37 minutes, 22 seconds
Street Date: April 28, 2009


Fresh off the success of the 2009 iShine tour with Luke Benward and The Rubyz, teen artist Robert Pierre re-enters the music scene with his sophomore record, Identity. Two and a half years ago, this once little-known artist released his debut, confirming him as a potentially big upcoming act. As with any sophomore release, the bar of standards was set higher this time around, and was seemingly met with this fresh collection of pop tracks.

In every aspect of this album, Robert's singled out theme is to help his audience understand their identity that can found in Christ. Opening track "Jesus" praises Him and makes a commitment to always rely on His power and mercy. "Let God Arise" is an open, unashamed call to bring glory to God. Meanwhile, "I Will Love You," the most toned down and subdued track on the record, promises to love God through thick and thin. Undeniably, though, the title track makes the boldest proclamation and is the standout track on the album. The song states, "I got nothing to hide / I know my identity / Without a doubt I know His blood has covered me," while at the same time advocating purity and asking listeners to set higher moral principles than those of the world.

The only major shortcoming on Identity is the lack of any raw, stripped down moments or tracks. If any suggestion could be made for future records, a toning down of the pop factor would most likely be a good one. In the end, though, Robert Pierre remains one-hundred percent real to his faith, and his passion for sharing the message of Christ shines through. His music and lyrics are worth looking forward to in the years to come, and it's most likely that many others will feel the same way.
