After her 2006 American Idol Underground win in the faith-based category, Schafer set out to do what no performers are currently doing&write music with positive faith-affirming, peace-affirming messages that would appeal to listeners, regardless of their faith affiliation. With thick layers of vocals, electronica and guitars fronted by Beth’s silky voice, the messages of Build That Bridge reach out to those who believe in God and hope for peace; who are willing to stand shoulder to shoulder with others like themselves regardless of what church or temple they pray in. The title track, co-written and performed by veteran rocker Larry Hoppen of the band, Orleans, is backed by Beth’s all-star band as is the rest of this well-arranged, well-produced collection. Schafer has garnered fans of so many diverse faiths, it was time to assemble a project that spoke to her fanbase directly; letting them know that the music that unites them could create friendships that could lead to peace. The overall mood is celebratory and hopeful; making you want to join the cast of thousands who sing along on the two live tracks toward the CD’s end. Build That Bridge is ambitious and fresh.
