Caedmon's Call fans may recognize independent artist Jeremy Casella from back when he used to open for the band on tour, though his sound has evolved considerably since those simpler acoustic days. Take the voice of Paul McCartney (or his mentor, Phil Keaggy), and then combine it with the earthy alternative pop of Wilco or Jars of Clay and the modern folk of David Gray or Andrew Osenga. To say there's nothing quite like Casella in the Christian music landscape is an understatement. The other component is the poetic writing, which explores the tension between despair and hope while wrestling with the role of faith in this everyday tug-of-war; not too unlike the Psalms. Jeremy Casella's latest outing, Recovery, is a hauntingly beautiful album that's sure to attract the attention of more progressive record labels mindful of the deeper artistic wells to be found in contemporary Christian music.
