This solo artist has added much maturity and songwriting prowess to his repertoire since his last release (2011’s self-titled). Kid Heart sounds somber, sober, emotional and melodic – like the more flowing tunes from Derek Webb’s Mockingbird album. The title track beckons the listener (probably finding the singer preaching to himself) to “get back, get back” to that heart that trusted in God like a child. “Daddy’s Broken Down Car” grades high as a poetic metaphor that a child believes when their parent’s arrival doesn’t happen – hoping for the best and believing a convenient excuse. It turns into a reminder that our Father in Heaven won’t let us down. Definitely give it a listen.
