American Idol season 8 finalist Danny Gokey returns with Rise, a thirteen song set of charming contemporary country originals.
Drawing from his own experiences with depression and searching for meaning, Rise assures listeners that hope beckons even in the darkest moments (Stronger Than We Think). He acknowledges the social unrest that clouds our world but points toward the light that lies beyond its reach (Better Than I Found It). He promises that no problem is too great to overcome (The Comeback) and that even those wounded by loneliness can find love (Symptoms).
Rise not only boasts Gokey's incredible vocal prowess and range, it features his emerging talent as a songwriter on all but two of its songs. It's never been more evident that Gokey is an artist with much to say, drawing upon the highs and lows of his own life experiences that he shares openly with his fans.
