“Rise” is the sophomore outing by Bucks County, PA independent singer/songwriter, Wendy Schettig, and it is definitely worth the wait. The Mike Lozinski-produced CD has a gorgeous sound which really highlights Ms. Schettig’s vocals and allows the listener to fully engage with her folk-based approach to Christian music. Those in the Philadelphia area who have seen her perform over the past few years will be familiar with a number of the songs on “Rise”. Particular favorites include the funky, funny “Gospel Donut” which pokes fun at Christians who just want to be fed the Word without putting it into action and the imploring “Somewhere Beyond this Place” that asks the question, “who will tell the unsaved about Jesus?”.

“Lay Your Burden Down” takes the blues and turns it around with lyrics of hope which is a pretty neat trick. “Wolf in Sheep’s Pajamas” with it’s quirky, funny lyrics has a strong underlying message with a catchy tune. A personal highlight is the hauntingly beautiful “Romans 8” which is the coda to the CD and leaves you wanting more.

With the hopeful lyrics “Neither height nor depth, anything in creation, can take Your love from me”, it is the perfect way to end the recording. If you are looking for good folk-based Christian music, I highly recommend this CD.
