Audrey Assad's "The House You're Building": Music Review

Share This article

In the same vein of mainstream contemporaries like Sara Bareilles, newcomer Audrey Assad brings an adult contemporary sound with a hint of indie to the CCM world.

There are moments when Assad may be the cure for common Christian radio, but mostly this album falls in line with too many Top 40 artists (for example, “Carry Me” could easily have been a Sara Groves song, as could “Known”). That said, Assad does right by singer/songwriter piano-driven pop.

The album is fresh and light, and her voice is effortlessly full of melody. It may not add anything new to radio, but it certainly fits in nicely.

Album Highlights: “For Love of You”, “Restless”, and “Show Me”
