One of the hardest aspects of learing to follow Christ is the concept of 'letting go' and allowing God to truly be Lord of our lives. Bryan and Valerie Bailey of 'Mended Vessels' encourage us to take our faith and trust in God to a new level through their acoustic rock CD 'Letting Go'. It is obvious from the very first note of this CD that there is more behind these songs than just music. The Baileys have a genuine desire to minister to and encourage their listeners. The music is just as powerful as the message, however! Mended Vessels is a solid acoustic rock band which very ably delivers the meaningful lyrics without distracting from them. The strengths of this band are Valerie Bailey's strong voice, the tight vocal harmonies, and the driving acoustic guitar which undergirds many of the songs. 'Who Is The One' and 'Follow Me' are memorable worship tracks which bring us right into the throne room of God. Thank you for blessing us with your ministry, Mended Vessels! -faithreviews.com _______________________________________________ Mended Vessels has been nominated for SIX MOMENTUM AWARDS this year through Indieheaven.com!
