CD Review: High Valley – Dear Life

High Valley – Dear Life

She’s With Me, Dear Life, I Ain’t  Changin’, Make You Mine, Don’t Stop, The Only,
Roads We’ve Never Taken, I BE U Be, Memory Makin, Soldier, Young Forever
The High Valley duo Brad and Curtis Rempel
are originally from Blumenort, Alberta, Canada. 
The brothers create their own sound, mixing different genres like pop,
rock and still sticking to the country roots. 
We can take a glimpse of their hearts, their energy through their
albums.  They provide us with a model of
wide-open life fully lived.
Everyone undergoes different seasons in
life.  When you’re experiencing a detour,
when you’re lost, when you’re disappointed, frustrated, doubting and fighting
your own battle, take a hold on the first track in this album.   “She’s With Me” is a more than wonderful
fight song.  I love how the banjo, guitar
and the drums wage war with emotions. 
The lyrics and the rhythm are hand in hand, dancing their way to victory.  It’s so much better to fight the battle with
someone who sticks with you till end. 
That’s when you can truly say, “Through thick and thin” and “Victory is
Ours.”  It will make you realize that the
applause in the beginning of the song rhymes with those phrases.
“I Ain’t Changin’” is an inspiration that
sticks to me.  It talks about that narrow
road less traveled, it talks about experiencing the favor, promotion and yet
still grounded on the truth, the purpose and becoming who he is supposed to be
even in the midst of a very complicated world. 
Being true to one self, being a man with values and increasing faith
truly stands out in the crowd, a man who is in this world, but not of this
world.
“Don’t Stop” encourages you to embrace and
pursue your dream.  Everyone of us has a
role to do, a purpose to fulfill, to make a difference, to be a changer and
never minding the haters.  You are not
define by people’s opinions.  You are who
our Maker created you to be.  Whether you
take steps to your dream or not, there are people who always drag you
down.  As the song goes, “There’s only one
of you…When holding on to heaven…Is all you got…Whatever you do, don’t
stop…Love it, while you got it…Right here, right now…Never let the haters…Drag
you down…You’re nobody’s shadow…Go cast your own…You can put down roots…Or be a
rolling stone…I’ve got your back…You wanna take your shot…Whatever you do,
don’t stop…Whatever you do, don’t stop.
“I Be U Be” is the perfect balance of
passion, creativity, strategy and inspiration in one’s journey.  You will find gathered wisdom, encouragement
in times of challenges in life, through trials and errors.  It helps you navigate the twists and turns
that leads to success on to the good life by following the true light that
shines in the dark.
