Album Notes
Ballad of the Mission:
Sweet, smooth country melodies and harmonies are secured with a harvest of Nashville's finest session players, cultivating the true "Nashville Sound" entwined in praise to Jesus in English and Spanish. In mention of a handful of session players for this project, the Karen Johns Band included Mickey Raphael (harmonica player for Willie Nelson), Jim Hoke(multi-instrumentalist for Mark Knopfler, Alan Jackson, Billy Joel, Don Henley, Emmylou Harris, NRBQ, and more); Mark Niemiec (2001 Grammy nominee), and Luis Espaillat(Atlantic Records). Once again, husband and wife songwriting team, Seminary Graduate Karen and James Johns, demonstrate their giftedness to successfully write, arrange,
perform, and produce a variety of styles and genres, and in this project they incorporate the writing talents of other artisans including, Canadian song writer David Gingras;
Venezuelan lyricists Ingrid Petit; American poet Brian Houle... This Karen Johns Band Christian, country/folk album was produced in conjunction with the Karen Johns Band
Christian jazz/blues album Mercy River (log on to www.Isaiah12Records.com or www.KarenJohnsBand.com for her extensive biography and much more).

Fabulous, fun and inspirational!
The Karen Johns Band rocks! Incorporating authentic new country and folk sounds without falling into old cliches, this CD is a delight. 'Forgiveness' opened my eyes and then brought tears to them. 'Jacob's Ladder' always brings a smile. The mission and the message are clear without the bitter saccharine after-taste of some spiritual CDs. A huge thumbs up from this new fan!
