Jadon Lavik's latest effort represents a considerable change in direction musically and thematically as he dives head first into the world of hymns. Roots Run Deep features a cavalcade of familiar classics such as "Come Thou Fount," "I Surrender All," "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus," "I Need Thee Every Hour," "Take My Life" and "Amazing Grace," all supported by Lavik's sturdy yet seemingly effortless vocals. But just because the song titles may be recognizable, listeners shouldn't expect the melodies to sound too familiar. "All the arrangements are unique, and some of them don't sound much like the originals," Lavik explains. "I composed and produced virtually the whole project, and I worked hard to present my interpretation of each hymn. Roots provides a true representation of who I am."
After releasing two critically-acclaimed albumsMoving on Faith and Life on the Insideand touring alongside Rebecca St. James and BarlowGirl, Jadon Lavik decided to dig into some of his favorite hymns on Roots Run Deep. His love and appreciation for the standards of the faith shine through on the self-produced album.
Roots Run Deep features familiar classics such as Come Thou Fount, Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus, I Need Thee Every Hour and Take My Life, all supported by his sturdy yet seemingly effortless vocals.
What sets this album apart from the pack of recent hymns albums are the original arrangements and melodies, as he creates his own interpretation of each hymn using simple instrumentation for an intimate sound. Lavik is joined by industry veteran Fernando Ortega on Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus, a highlight of the album. What a Wondrous Love is This is a fresh take of this hymn which showcases Laviks guitar style, while Amazing Grace takes on an acoustic, jazzy feel. The albums melodic sounds draw listeners into a quiet place, especially on My Fathers World and I Surrender All. With an acoustic vibe comparable to Brandon Heath and Warren Barfield, Roots Run Deep is an organic unplugged worship experience.
