Nothing Back by Jason Eaton

Reviewed by Caleb Newell

"...a short but powerful start to a career that seems to be divinely blessed... this is one you won’t want to miss"

A journey through various life circumstances, doors opening, and divine revelations that signify a blessing far beyond his ethereal tenor range lead to Jason Eaton’s full time pursuit of faith-based singing/arranging/songwriting/worship leading. Singing in churches lead Jason to get a degree in music education from Olivet Nazarene University. From there he found himself a soloist with Thurlow Spur Productions of Concert Ministries, International, playing the lead role in “David, A Man after God’s Own Heart”. He also appeared on “The 700 Club” with Pat Robertson. After handing every aspect of his life over to God after an emotional alter call, he fostered a passion towards a musical calling currently represented in the EP Nothing Back.

The opening title track, “Nothing Back”, is a declaration of complete surrender to God. A trifecta starts out the album for someone who has turned every aspect of his life over to God. “All I got/ All I am/ All my dreams/ All my plans/ I’m holding back/ I’m holding nothing back from You”, a full power opening; the lyrics are well-built upon, the tenor vocals are out-of-this-world, and the music is compassionate. This is my favorite track on the album.

The next song relates to the divine intervention within Eaton’s career. “God Thing” declares that we can’t always explain what is happening around or to us. It feels like we have been swept away in a massive storm, but all we do now is that it was a God thing.

"Free” speaks about salvation. How good God is and how free we have been made through His love. We have been humbled and we have been granted peace through His saving grace. The song brings the CD up a notch, and rocks out about God, and our salvation; great topics to rock out to.

The next track was arranged by Eaton. “I Bowed” is a great praise song to include in this CD. It speaks about a dream about going to Heaven, and giving all praise and glory to God. Then we asked to see the Savior of the whole world, Jesus, and we bowed before the Holy One.

We all search for truth throughout our lives, sometime we believe a lie, and sometimes the truth is hard to swallow. “Holding Out Hope” is a declaration that we need to hold out hope to those that are still searching for truth in a world that will break them, and is consumed by fear. Who doesn’t need hope to get through this life?

Nothing Back is a short but powerful start to a career that seems to be divinely blessed. Though none of the songs were written by Jason Eaton, I can’t wait to hear some that will be. The selection of songs for this CD was phenomenal. Nothing Back is available at iTunes and your local store; this is one you won’t want to miss.

Caleb Newell BIO:  My name is Caleb Newell. I am from south-central Pennsylvania, where I’ve lived my whole life. Surprisingly, I have never attended a Creation Festival, even though I’m about forty-five minuteS to an hour away. I also go by two pennames: Rauhl Ang (Secular), and Cylos Eli (Christian), if I ever strap myself down long enough to get a novel finished.  I’m just a mundane guy, trying to find his place in the world, Asking the one important question all the time “Where do I go from here?”, and trying to see light in the darkness of this world. While attempting to budget my time better, I like to augment just some of my God-given abilities and love criticism for them: writing (mostly fiction), reviewing, singing, drawing/painting, and counseling. My regular blogging site is: http://reviewsplus.blogspot.com, where I review various materials.
