In listening to the album, it is obvious Gokey has a strong sense of who he is as an artist and what he wants to say to his audience. There's a focus and a sense of purpose rarely found on a debut disc. "It's country, but it has a little different edge," says the Milwaukee native. "I want to create my own fingerprint, and I want my music to say something. I want to have an emotional connection, but at the same time, I want to make people just have a good time, make them want to dance, have fun and party. I wanted to throw all those emotions in that CD, and I feel like I accomplished that."
During his tenure on American Idol, Gokey impressed the judges with his versatility as he performed hits by The Temptations, Carrie Underwood, Michael Jackson and Rascal Flatts, among others. As he continued to rise through the ranks of Idol hopefuls, it became increasingly clear that Gokey was blessed with a voice that could sing any style of music and turn any song into a compelling moment. So why did he choose a career as a country artist? "I felt like I could be myself," he says matter-of-factly, and admits he got some career advice from someone he respected. "Randy Travis was a mentor for American Idol, and he asked me, 'Have you thought about country? You really need to, because people would love you and the amount of soul that you could bring to country. You bring a uniqueness to it.'"
Poignant, rowdy, thought-provoking and smile-inducing -- Danny Gokey's debut album is all those things and so much more. It's a reflection of life's peaks and valleys from a young man well acquainted with both. "I'm very proud of this CD. Every song has something to say," he relates. "We're all human, and human beings are made up of so many different aspects. We want to be entertained, but we also want to be inspired, and music is a universal language."
