Radiate [edit]
by Tricia | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: August 13, 2013
 

Communicating timeless truths dressed as upbeat, pure pop songs, Tricia debuts her first solo pop album: Radiate. As the lead-singer of GRAMMY-nominated rock band Superchick, Tricia's heart for encouraging and giving hope was evident through songs like 'We Live,' 'One Girl Revolution,' and 'Stand In The Rain'. On Radiate, Tricia continues to give a voice to those struggling with identity, and self-image issues. Radiate strikes a balance between musical style that is fun - similar to artists like Pink and Gwen Stefani - without losing the positive, hopeful message of the gospel.

Offering an Alternative | Posted July 19, 2013
I won't profess to be an expert on the current mainstream pop market, but what I do hear is awfully discouraging. There seems to be an overabundance of both musical and lyrical garbage. That makes it exceptionally refreshing when a Christian artist offers a sound that is accessible to young people who may be drawn to secular pop while also being able to garner parental approval and offer some more healthy messages. Former Superchick singer Tricia is here with her first solo pop effort to give young girls just such a record.
 
Radiate hits all the right notes and has songs that can bring some fresh tunes to Christian pop radio, and even a few with crossover potential. Opening track "Everything As Loss" has "radio hit" written all over it. The song is a strong introduction to the record musically and lyrically it's got some draw also, as evidenced in the chorus: "What could hold a candle / what could come close / what could overshadow all you are? / Let my life prove that compared to what you finished on that cross / I count everything as loss.
 
The first half of the record continues the streak of positive electronic-beat pop hits. "Enough" and the title track are fast-paced standouts that could definitely give Tricia quite the launching pad for building up a following. "Good to be a Girl" and "Daughter of the King" are "girl" songs offering encouragement to young ladies. Ultimately, while the first half of the record is pretty safe and accessible, it's still solid and arguably does everything that it needs to.
 
"Love Will Not Let Go" slows things down (in a positive way) with a powerful and moving ballad. The piano-driven song reminds us of the endurance of love and is a definite album highlight. "Different" continues the pop trend of the first half of the record. In the standout lyric "you can't make a difference without being different" it offers an important truth for modern youth to learn. 
 
"Adding Up To A Miracle" is one of the album's catchiest numbers, offering a terrific chorus with enormous hit potential. "Without You" is a strong ballad speaking of how aimless life is without Christ. There's no potential "Jesus or my significant other" interpretation to this one as the chorus turns this into an unashamed praise song. 
 
"What I Know" is a worthy follow-up, offering a strong and emotional ballad. "Little Rose" is a touching bonus track, a loving lullaby to Tricia's young daughter.
 
Closing Thoughts: 
Lyrically, the album treads territory covered by many before, but it still feels fresh and relevant to the issues that young girls face every day. It should definitely meet with the Christian parental "seal of approval" while still being relevant and catchy enough to appeal to its target audience. 
 
With techno-pop beats that could rival anything on mainstream radio and solid, Christ-centered, encouraging messages relatable to the youth of today, Radiate is a worthy late-summer release that should meet with family-wide approval. While it's not offering anything that will shake up the state of the genre, it holds its own and presents well what is expected from a pop album. The album is overall a solid entry with several potential hits that could help establish Tricia's solo career as one to watch in the CCM scene.

Great music | Posted August 29, 2013
I was very surprised by this new album by Tricia. It is mostly pop music with some strong ballads. It has very Christ-focused lyrics that are worshipful. My four year old daughter loves dancing around to the songs Radiate and Enough. It is great music for the family.

Pleasantly Surprised | Posted August 07, 2013
 I had never heard of Tricia before this album preview so I had no idea what to expect quality wise or genre wise and I must say, I am pleasantly surprised. I'm not usually a pop guy, I listen to mostly alternative rock and metal, with some inbetweens like rock and hard rock, but my pop section is small, growing, but small. I can say that the catchy hooks on this album and clever concepts will make a nice addition to my library and be a fresh change of pace.

I like it | Posted August 06, 2013
 It still has a hint of the old Tricia but also fun new sound. I love her the song enough has such good words to that song and yet sounds fun and hip. I have always loved this girls voice though so she could sing anything and I'd love it lol

Good, but I expected more rock-n-roll | Posted August 06, 2013
 Tricia has some awesome lyrics, and some great composition on 4+ tracks of this album. But the whole album sounds like an extended "rock ballad"... coming from SC, I was expecting more rock-n-roll.

Father of Daughters. | Posted August 06, 2013
 As a father of daughters, I have apriciated Tricia's lyrics infused in the minds of  my now adult chilren as they sang them through the tumult of teenage struggle, failure and girl world, which I could not understand. This new album continues to speek out the Faithful journey to an audience needing such a life soundtrack.

Radiate | Posted August 01, 2013
Radiate by Tricia - known in the last album for Tricia Brock - is her sophomore album - the first pop - with beautiful lyrics, vocals and harmonies. This album is very different of The Road, her first album. This had more worship lyrics than this new. And I can't stop hearing Enough, the first single... Let's wait for this amazing release!
