JFH Indie Inspection Review



Shawn P. Derritt
Thank You

Street Date: 2009
Style: Contemporary / Worship
Artist Website: CDBaby.com


Upon release of his last record, I strongly suggested that Shawn P. Derritt needed to get away from the punchless, smooth jazz that made up the first half of the release, and stick to the Gospel Worship that closed out the record with a flourish. While I am not here to take credit for the change, I am here to say that his latest album, Thank You, is a much better project. This time around, Derritt used every musical instrument that he could find, added plenty of background vocals, and created a record that sounds strong and full of energy and hope. If given the opportunity to nitpick, I would ask for stronger lyrical focus as we move forward. Overall, I am happy with the steps forward that Shawn P. Derritt has taken with his latest release, and I am already looking forward to the next project!
