Album Review ~ Hiding Place By Tori Kelly

Category Religious/Christian Genre Gospel R&B/Pop/Soul Release Date September 14, 2018. Rating 5 Stars Review Tori Kelly’s Hiding Place is rich with soul, vulnerability and truth. Her heart, lyrics and voice touch to the deepest parts, whether she’s hitting the highest notes or riding the lowest pitches. Clearly intentional and delicate about her theme, it is obvious Kelly aimed to inspire faith, hope, and love for the darkest of times with her story, as she boldly tells about the goodness and faithfulness of God in leading her through her toughest times and supplying her joy, strength, and love for God, herself, and others when she needed it the most. Kelly may have aimed to bless and inspire, but it’s simply impossible not to be entertained by Hiding Place, as each unique song touches on something that resonates on a personal level with most living souls. *Though I offer this review to the public, it is my opinion and simply that. My gratitude to Propeller Consulting, LLC for a free CD copy in exchange for my honest opinion.   …

Song Review ~ Now Or Never By Tyler Russell

Genre Pop Release Date August 15, 2018. Rating 4 Stars Review Tyler Russell’s Now or Never can be easily described as reverberating, catchy, and fun.

Song Review ~ White Noise By CASS feat. Chris Howland

Category Religious/Christian Genre Pop/Rock Release Date August 10, 2018. Rating 4.5 Stars Review CASS’s White Noise is a love song of appeal to God, showing the singer’s passion, zeal, and need for a relationship with God as their lover. This is what it means for Jesus to be the Groom, and us, the Bride, an aspect of the Christian faith not emphasized enough. White Noise shows the earnest pursuit of love and intimacy with God, which is a desperately needed message in music today.

Album Review ~ Seasons By Chris August

Category Religious/Christian Genre Pop/Blues Release Date June 1, 2018. Rating 5 Stars Review There’s a maturity about August’s Seasons—pop music steeped in traditional blues to reveal lyrics that speak directly to the heart, and overall music that touches the soul. August’s music reflects his deep passion for God and music—no turning back! The metaphors in the lyrics are stunningly accurate in the way they reveal the truth of the soul that yearns for God, but is powerless on its own. You can clearly see that the Seasons Album is a love song between August and Jesus. Pay attention to Delivery and Moonlight songs—so beautiful! Definitely wow-worthy. In my opinion, Chris August’s Seasons is the hottest drop yet on the Christian music scene this 2018. Indescribably lovely! Unbelievably stunning! About Chris August I love writing, producing and mixing music. I started on an old 4-track tape recorder when I was 15 and never stopped. My new record, Seasons, is a little unlike any other record I’ve done. I didn’t have a certain theme or sound in …

Album Review ~ Faithful By Teresa Peterson

Category Religious/Christian Genre Acoustical Pop Release Date June 1, 2018. Rating 4 Stars Review Softly, beautifully, Teresa Peterson’s voice, heart, and songs invoke a calm and joy that let’s you know she receives from Jesus what she offers her listeners. The urban country-like tune, with a hint of pop and acoustic, produces a blend of music that is fantastically soothing, and at the same time, danceable. The lyrics are a revelation of a heart full of praise, faith, and trust in God, which also invites others through music (and apart from it) to do the same. Faithful is a beautiful album that shows that Peterson’s intent is to point people to Jesus.   About Teresa Peterson Teresa’s journey of faith and music began in earnest when she felt a call from God at 16 years old saying, “I desire for you to sing for me and for them.” Through her music, she openly shares the struggles she has faced in this walk and the deep truth of God’s continued faithfulness. Her refreshing honesty and vibrant …

Rating 4 Stars Review In his ever classic pop/rock style of praise and worship, Brewster hits the music scene with another fantastic drop that blesses the soul and entertains the heart in a way that tells you there’s more where that came from. There’s an evident overflow from Brewster’s faith that testifies that God is real and is good. It shows in his grateful praise, adoring worship, and overflowing joy. God Of The Impossible was meant to lead hearts into a realm of complete surrender and trust before the God Who in His presence there is love, peace, joy, and comfort—endlessly! About Lincoln Brewster For as long as he can remember, music has been an integral part of Lincoln Brewster’s life. By age two, he was using broken drumsticks  to keep  time at his  mom’s band rehearsals. At age five, he was playing the mandolin for tourists in a port town in Alaska. And by age nine, he had picked up the electric guitar. But music …
