Joel Jorgensen-Lift Me Up EP

If you recall this man right here, it's either from the music he released under the band name, Angels Fall, or the review I had performed on his debut single a few months back, "Aching Heart".  Whatever way you look at it, this is one brilliant talent, and one hell of a release.  You hear a truly professional arrangement on "Lift Me Up", and you most definitely will get your $5.00 worth on this music.  Joel had a hit song called "Drunk Enough" with Angels Fall, then proceeded on an unique tour, with help from Century Media Records.  I first discovered this incredible musician, when I was actually working a ton of promotions with Danielle Fidelity and Century Media Records.  I was even fortunate enough to catch a live show in Toledo, Ohio.  I thought back then that it was a great show, and it only proved to me that my opinion was right.  However, little did I know that that was merely the beginning.  This EP, "Lift Me Up", was recorded at the fantastic Legends Recording Studio.  Such a masterpiece has been issued!  As mentioned, "Aching Heart" came across me online, and I took a listen.  I was shocked!  With a raw acoustic feel, and a song that held deep lyrics, I was even more amazed at this man known as Joel Jorgensen.  Upon reading an online post a few days back, I saw Joel had obtained his master copy of the EP.  I became highly intrigued, and very anxious.  I just had to grab it up, almost immediately, when I saw a post last night that it was up on a site for purchase.  Upon the very first go around of listening to the EP, it really didn't take long to discover another astonishing effort made by Joel.  As I said earlier, you will feel like you were blessed with a shower of gifts when you encounter the track, "Aching Heart".  That's not the only bright spot here.  In fact, all four songs on "Lift Me Up" shine in many ways.  Of course the pictures and complete overall design/artwork is impeccable too!  Shari Yantra Marcacci did a superb job on the shots of Joel, and the overall design.  You can check out more of her work at the link below.  The lead cut, "Lift Me Up", is a truly beauty-laced piece of work.  Your emotions rise and flutter with the track, and you start to instantly realize you are experiencing something special at the very moment.  Followed up by "Sunshine Kisses", which has since became my favorite of the release, it all seems to fit together with an ease of compassion, perfection, and simply...awe.  "Aching Heart" hits you up as the third song on this EP.  To conclude the release is a fantastic piece titled "Ocean Waves".  Such a well composed, and delightful song, it makes me want to make a long drive, or trip, and crank this baby up high, and feel the winds caress my head.  As the sun would begin to set upon the skyline, it would all come together even more perfectly-the music will entrance you with a beauty you can't see without believing.  I would say buy this, but I think I have made it clear by now.  Mixed incredibly by the legend Matt Hyde (Grammy Winning Engineer/Producer),  at Track To The Future and York Studios in L.A., California. It, at the point-emerged as a "well oiled machine".  Damian Fink helmed production also!  Don't just buy this, embrace it and I deeply trust you too will become one with the acoustic beauty that lies within "Lift Me Up" !
