The four-song EP opens with "Nothing Left but You," a fun, upbeat worship song with smoothly flowing lyrics: "so I looked down and I followed along with the breeze / 'til I realized that the road had nothing for me / I opened up my eyes / so I cried out the Jesus on my knees / I know who You are, will You help me out, please? / 'cause I've got nothing left but You." The second track, "Because of You" is an enjoyable (and simple) offering, delivering a fresh-yet-nostalgic vibe.
The third track, "Keep Singing," sees Stovall pull back a few degrees, offering what starts out as a more somber and reflective piece with equally poignant lyrics: "Even when the marriage fails and heaven quickly turns to hell / and every bit of joy we have is ripped away / even when the cut is deep and no one sees beneath the sleeves / and we don't have the strength to face another day / we'll keep singing hallelujah." The song gradually grows in power, eventually finding its way into anthem status. The final track, "God of Change," is a worshipful and stripped-down piece. It bears a number of country gospel elements and serves as a beautiful closing track that brings the EP to a lovely resolution.
In an era where electronic-infused worship projects run at a dime-a-dozen, Dave Stovall rises far above the rest. His debut EP is an easy and fun listen; here's hoping this isn't the last of his solo projects.- Review date: 2/3/19, written by David Craft of Jesusfreakhideout.com
