Love Comes To Life demonstrates once again the passion and energy that have made Big Daddy Weave one of Christian music's most compelling acts for nearly a dozen years. True to form, the project teems with real life and emotion, from longing and struggle to breakthrough and gratitude, with front man Mike Weaver's forthright songwriting and intimate and unmistakable vocals backed by powerful arrangements and stellar musicianship. It derives its power from the fact that life and music intertwine so fully.
"We've faced a lot of personal challenges and adversity during the past couple of years," says Mike, "and coming to the other side of that leaves us with fresh things to share, and I think we can share even more deeply than ever before."
Those challenges - from the fatigue faced at times by musicians who spend much of their time on the road to a devastating fire that swept through guitarist/producer Jeremy Redmon's house, and health issues faced by some band members - produced a record that reflects two sides of the Christian life.
"You've got the ones I term the belly-achers," says Mike with a laugh. "Those are the hurting songs, which are way outnumbered by what came after that, the songs that say, 'We can't wait to worship God because we see even in tragedy, God, you are triumphant'."
