In 2010, former Contemporary Christian star Jennifer Knapp broke a seven-year silence with Letting Go, a deeply personal album that saw the Kansas-born artist transitioning away from faith-based music. Just prior to the album's release, Knapp publicly revealed that she was a lesbian and had been in a same-sex relationship since relocating to Australia in 2002. Naturally, this created controversy within the Christian music community, but rather than denounce the church, she folded her faith into the greater picture of her life's story and steered her songs down a more all-encompassing confessional singer/songwriter path. Four years later, she cements this new direction with the rustic, introspective Set Me Free. Trading in the Lilith Fair alt-pop of her earlier sound for a kind of Midwestern Americana, Knapp delivers 11 warm tracks that sound as wide as the Kansas sky and with the appropriate storms and calm to fill it up. Recorded in Nashville and produced by violinist/arranger Jacob Lawson, Set Me Free offers up a mix of dark, introspective ballads awash with country and blues tones as well a couple of flat-out barnburners like the desperate, twangy opener "Remedy" and the open road heartbeat of "Why Wait," both of which act as worthy vehicles for her powerful, throaty growl. Her thoughtful life observations and warm emotions have never felt more at home than in this setting, supported by pedal steel and reverb-drenched Telecasters or simple upright bass and brushed snare. Both in subject and style, Knapp has found her bailiwick.
