"He's human and we can relate to him as human - a real person that had thoughts and feelings," Eisenhour said."We just sometimes put these people on pedestals.

The gospel soul beat in the first song, "Singin' and Hummin'," catches the listeners' interest and leads perfectly into Kelly Eisenhour's smooth singing.
Kelly Eisenhour's smooth voice is accompanied by Fluker on the organ, back-up singers, and a light drum set.
The lyrics bounce back and forth from Kelly to the singers in a kind of question-and-answer style, with one voice telling half of the message, followed soon after by the others echoing the rest of it.Its gentle rhythms and peaceful chords are a pleasure to the ears.
"Circle of Blackbirds" is a sort of autobiographical song Parley sings about his life and how he came to know the Lord.
