Jacob's Road hails from northwest Tennessee and was formed in March 2003, when Mark Robey and Carrie Coffey officially teamed together to share their faith through their love of rock. And despite natural comparisons to Wilshire's pop and Out of the Grey's sophisticated adult contemporary sound, this duo (not married to each other) indeed has more of a rock edge to its sound. Coffey's the stronger vocalist of the two, combining aspects of Natalie Merchant, Christine Dent?, and Erin O'Donnell.
The album, "The Journey" boasts simple messages of truth with the power that the industry needs to reach the world. Never overdone or ?over the top?, staightforward guitar playing in songs like ?I See You? and ?Run Away? give a great frame for Carrie's voice. The enchantingly, passionate lyrics are memorable and creative without sacrificing message.
