Big-band vibes and uplifting Gospel choirs aplenty kick off this Faith-focused compilation album from California’s Elmark Music Label.
If ever a song was perfectly designed to open up a conceptually considerate project, Speak To Your Day is the one. A clear sense of funk meets with a Sermon-style spoken vocal that inspires confidence and invites the audience to participate.
Then comes a gathering of voices, soulful and melodic in beautifully energizing ways, and all of this is accompanied by a classic keys-led soundscape and the familiar, comforting clap of a beat. You can picture the scene, and you can’t help but feel great. ‘It’s gonna be a good day…’
As the project goes on, a surprising level of eclecticism stands tall. The second track leads with a hip hop style and a creative soundscape, still focusing on the Faith at the centre of the album, and still with a gorgeously soulful hook from a softly passionate choir. We’re gifted a clear level of variety, which helps keep the whole thing engaging, interesting, and easy to connect with.
Expect consistently heartfelt, appreciative music, some RnB vibes alongside plenty of that immersive Gospel, and masses of hearty songwriting.
