Release Date
March 26, 2012
Label
Inpop

Style: Soulful pop/rock; compare to Jason Mraz, Marc Broussard, Gavin DeGraw

Top tracks: "I Will Find You," "If I Ever Needed Grace," "The Only One"

On his fifth long player, Needham sounds best when he's taking risks, such as his unexpected duet with rapper Lecrae in opener "I Will Find You." There are also several additional R&B/jazz-infused moments to accompany his soulfully smooth vocals, but a few others are middle-of-the-road piano/acoustic songs lacking personality. Needham sings sincerely of God's grace, newfound fatherhood (after a series of miscarriages), and checking his ego at the door, partly making up for some of the musical shortcomings and showing his potential as a songwriter.
