Professional Reviews From Music Critics

“Life Is A Journey… is a rich and unswerving dose of gospel from front to back… [Mike] has a very moving voice, which brings to mind Eric Clapton in his softer moments (think “Beautiful Tonight”)… He is a practiced and proficient guitarist and songwriter, as the bulk of Life Is A Journey is made up of bright, catchy and uplifting material… ‘My Very Angel’ quietly makes a case for being the best track on the record and has a certain class and elegance that relays a sense of sincerity so many standard ‘love songs’ miss completely… It’s hard not to be inspired by Mike Pavelka’s passionate and honest undertaking of material he feels so strongly about.”

“Mike Pavelka sings, writes and plays a most gentle form of Christian music. Life Is A Journey chronicles the singer/songwriter’s spiritual/musical journey in a sweet and warm manner… It’s admirable the way Pavelka sings so slowly and thoughtfully… and meditates upon God’s holiness… Life Is A Journey is filled with the kind of music that is perfectly suited for a church service, to be sung just prior to a sermon. Listening to it just puts one’s heart in the correct frame of mind… It’s a lovely, meditative work. The way Pavelka fit steel guitar into so many places makes it a collection that particularly stands out…  Life Is A Journey captures the essence of Pavelka’s musical mode.”
