While the album would be most appropriately filed under hip hop, Caffey does weave various other styles throughout the beats, as well. Songs like "Lights Fashion Cars Money" and "Burgundy Sweater" have hints of EDM, while "Prodigal" is a full-on trap song, and "Faith Journey" contains more than 8 minutes of old school-style beats. It's no small feat to incorporate so many different subgenres into an album and keep the cohesiveness, but dawnpatrol has done exactly that. The one thing that really sticks out as an area of improvement is Caffey's flow. Some songs on this album indicate that he's had some amount of success as a rapper in the past (for instance, sharing the stage with Chamillionaire), but there are a lot of times where the flow is a little awkward or even sounds forced. He has a good sense of rhythm, but at times, it sounds like his goal is to write a pop song and work it into hip hop (I have no confirmation of this, of course, it just sounds like it). Pop and hip hop can definitely work well together (ask Peabod), but I think dawnpatrol could work a lot better as more of a pop project than a hip hop one. That being said, Testimony of Chase Caffey has a lot going for it, and I enjoyed most of my time spent listening to it. Fans of Peabod and B. Reith may enjoy it as well.- Review date: 11/4/22, written by Scott Fryberger of Jesusfreakhideout.com

Chase Caffey: I lived in Hawaii for about 7 years and "dawnpatrol" is when you wake up and go surfing as the sun is coming up.
Chase: Jack Johnson, Illinium, NF, Nobigdyl. - to name a few.
Chase: That's a great question - I started with one song (quiet time) and realized after I listened to the finished mix that it was indeed an introduction of my testimony. It felt more like a story than a song.
Chase: DJ'ing weddings pay the bills! I used to rap when I was about 16 - 17 all through high school. Yet - it was pretty dark stuff. After I encountered God again while in Fiji my heart changed and he revamped the love for hip hop and rap inside of me.
Chase: I love to collaborate - I (chase caffey), dawnpatrol am the sole producer / mixer / mastering engineer - but I do work with other artist to make a song that provides different flavors.
Chase: Really good - in the Kingdom way especially. It is almost like an Ice Breaker for meeting strangers. For instance - I'll talk with new people at the gym or store and ask them if they would be interested in hearing my testimony. When they say yes - I airdrop them the Album! (Haha! I never thought sharing my testimony would be so easy now a days.)
Chase: That God found me when I was in a dark place - and he wants to do the same for you! There is a God and he does love you. Open your heart and give it time - taste and see the difference!
Chase: I have an Acoustic Album in the works (10 songs) and a small Youth Group Tour here on the gulf coast of MS. We are going to perform the Album Testimony and encourage young people to live for Christ!
Chase: Music is in many ways a Universal Language. When you mix it with Truth it becomes so powerful! My wife and I hope that you enjoy the hard work we put into the album (almost a whole year!) - and look forward to putting out a lot more music in the future.
P.S. don't wait to chase your dreams! Go for it!
