It’s been a little while since I shared a music review and I’m thrilled to share this one.
About Hear Me and Kyle Sherman
Fort Worth-based singer-songwriter Kyle Sherman recently signed on as the flagship artist to brand new label RayLynn Records, an opportunity that presented itself during a time period when a record deal wasn’t even on his radar.
"It’s crazy how God works," Kyle says. ‘Five years ago, I pushed pretty hard to do my own thing as a singer-songwriter, but every well I approached would dry up. It clearly wasn’t the right time." So Kyle continued on a path of leading worship, taking a full-time role as worship leader at Lifechurch.TV’s Fort Worth campus under the leadership of renowned pastor/author Craig Groeschel.
Just 3-years later Kyle made it back to Nashville, pouring his heart into a microphone at Sony studio with veteran producer and country singer-songwriter Mark Collie making his first album. God is faithful. Hear Me, the result of those sessions, is an eclectic and authentic mix of rootsy, southern soul.

From the first moment I began to listen to this CD, I have thoroughly enjoyed it. There is something about Kyle’s style that reminds me a little of another favorite Christian Contemporary Artist of mine, Michael W. Smith.
Why do really like this particular CD?
First off, Kyle’s got a wonderful voice that has a comforting feel to it. I’m also left with the feeling that he truly embraces the lyrics of each song and some of them definitely feel like a prayer. Considering 4 of the 12 songs found on the album he co-wrote, that feeling does not surprise me.
Secondly, I love the mixture of styles found on the album. No one style fits all here! He even has one song featuring another artist, Caroline Simpson, on vocals.
Finally, I truly enjoy listening to music that uplifts not only my spirit, but helps to lift my eyes towards heaven.
You can purchase individual tracks from the album for $0.99 each through iTunes or Amazon. Hear Me, the complete album, will be available as of today on Amazon for $8.99 as a download.
