I first heard Mercy River onstage live at the Deseret Book flagship’s store Ladie’s Night. They are three moms with great voices and a inspirational message. The CD Come Alive has several cover tracks of songs I’ve heard before, but my favorite was Walk You Through the Night. How fun to see my old college roommate and friend Cherie Call have one of her original songs covered by another LDS artist! I also genuinely enjoyed the parts where the three from Mercy River sing acapella. Sometimes you don’t need loud, catchy music or synthesized instruments. You can just hear the tone and enjoy the clarity of human song. I’m grateful for what this group is trying to do which is give us an alternative to the “sirens” of the world and those things we wouldn’t let our family listen to. My children sang along after having only listened once, which means they enjoyed Come Alive. The jewel cover image shows how the singer’s happiness and goodness shines through. Great job again Russ Dixon! I can’t wait to hear more original songs from Mercy River in the future. Thank you Deseret Book for the review copy.
About Mercy River
With 13 children between them, it’s amazing that Whitney Permann, Brooke Stone, and Soni Muller have time for anything other than runny noses, sock hunts, and prying suckers off the van floor. But music has been a part of each of their lives since childhood, and is now a strong presence in their homes.
The three friends met while singing in the Jenny Phillips Choir and there found a common love for tight harmonies and sharing the gospel through song. Over the past five years, Mercy River has traveled all over the United States and Canada as a highly sought after ensemble, performing for thousands of people while testifying of the Savior. Each member of the group brings several years of experience performing, writing, and directing hundreds of firesides and concerts—as well as recording on dozens of inspirational albums.
Their self-titled debut album was released in May 2008. “Beautiful Dawn,” was released in March of 2010. Their third album, “Higher” was released with rave reviews in February 2012. Mercy River is back with mesmerizing harmonies and upbeat vocal arrangements in “Come Alive”.
