All Music Guide:
Alternative CCM folk-rocker Jennifer Knapp debuted in 1994 with a self-released cassette that sold over 2,000 copies in its first year. Her first full-length CD, Wishing Well, appeared two years later; its success brought Knapp to the attention of the Gotee Records label, which issued her LP Kansas, produced by Audio Adrenaline frontman Mark Stuart, in 1998. The Grammy-nominated Lay It Down arrived in early 2000, followed by the biographical storybook of The Way I Am in 2001. Knapp put her public career on hiatus for the remainder of the decade and relocated to Australia before reappearing in 2010 with the more secular Letting Go. Coinciding with the publication of her memoir Facing the Music, she released her fifth album, Set Me Free, on Righteous Babe Records.
