What a great concept album – well-conceived and well-executed! New to me, Britisher, Steve Jolley should take a bow for writing and recording this unique project on the ups-and-downs in the life of King David. He has a polished feel to this recording that is hard to categorize.  Rock and ballad sounds seesaw from happy to sad according to the repertoire, but all are inspired and profitable changes that focus on the dizzy heights of
introspection. His sound is fully alive! It may not be directly simplistic, but this will interest many progressive country and gospel fans. Clearly, here’s a seemingly experienced pop-styled troubadour with a message in a spiritual field that is worth listening to. Too young to be a veteran, yet one feels that Steve has paid his dues already. This engaging contemporary project is a cut above many albums. Great musicianship combined with a strong voice, it was recorded at Nottingham’s Northbound Studios and produced by the performer and Mike Giddins”

“This CD by a Burton-on-Trent-based musician is a concept album exploring the life and heart of King David through his relationship with God, his wife Bathsheba and his best friend Jonathan. I can see that a lot of work has gone into the writing of this project, with the different facets of David’s life having been carefully thought through and lyrics crafted to match them. The joyful, heartbroken and guilty times in the life of this wonderfully human king are dealt with and Steve has a strong voice that seems to deal effortlessly with every note. The musical performances are good and in particular I thought that there is some lovely cello and flute playing that adds to the life of the music …”
