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.
Category Religious/Gospel Genre Funky Pop/Soul/Jazz Release Date August 17, 2018. Rating 5 Stars Reviews An all-round-themed album that touches on the various aspects of life and faith in an elegant and eclectic fashion with deep lyrics and mind-blowing music. This breath of fresh air neatly weaves the original classic elements of traditional funky pop, jazz, and rock with a twist of urban flavor to birth something entirely and delightfully new and spontaneous. The New Respects are bold, fantastically talented, and a band to look out for!
