Eric Robertson, a popular producer in Provo, has brought together an impressive list of talented vocalists to sing on new, fresh productions of classic Michael McLean songs. The vocalists include some of the top names from the burgeoning Provo music scene, including Elaine Bradley, from Neon Trees, and Ryan Innes, one of the top contestants on NBC's The Voice. Eric grew up listening to Michael McLean songs and still feels a strong connection to them. This album is an effort to pay tribute to those songs and produce them in a way that will speak to a younger generation of LDS youth.

I was a bit startled by the new arrangements of some of my old favorite Michael McClean songs. But once I got used to it, I really liked it. The jazzier feel to the music is bound to appeal to young listeners and a whole new generation. While the changes aren't likely to appeal to everyone, I thoroughly enjoyed them. I couldn't help singing along and tapping my foot. And the messages are as great as always.
I am currently working as a elementary school librarian which I love. I enjoy sharing books on my blogs of which I have two (Geo Librarian and LDS and Lovin' it). I also review for School Library Journal.
