Review&Giveaway: Plumb:Waiting to Exhale CD
About the Album:
EXHALE, the seventh studio album from acclaimed multi-genre singer, songwriter and author PLUMB, expresses a new focus and vision. After the runaway success of NEED YOU NOW (the album, title track and book), which coincided with her own moving story of brokenness and ultimately healing, Exhale brims with worshipful songs of gratitude and hope.
The defining concept of EXHALE was born from a sermon at Plumb’s home church, wherein her pastor Pete Wilson expressed the notion that the Church doesn’t exist for itself. Rather, believers come to church to breathe in grace and truth, be changed, and then go out and “exhale” that hope into their surrounding community.
“That idea of exhaling hope hit me right away and I couldn’t get to the Notes section on my phone fast enough. I started writing the chorus of Exhale right then and there,” explains Plumb. “I have been made new by the ultimate hope, and I want to share and exhale that hope in everyway I can.”
Tiffany Arbuckle Lee, better-known by her stage name Plumb, is a songwriter, recording artist, performer and author. Plumb has sold more than 500,000 albums and over two million singles worldwide, co-penned songs for numerous other artists, including Michelle Branch, Mandisa, Mandy Moore, Jaci Velasquez, and Natalie Grant, and had music placed in many films and television shows. Originally signed as a Christian Contemporary Music (CCM) recording artist in 1997, Plumb is now known as well as or better in alternative rock, electronic dance music, and for the use of her music in film and television than she is in the CCM market.
First and foremost, I would like to start this review by saying that my family and I are HUGE Plumb fans so we were so incredibly excited about this review. Now onto to the most important part. Music is a big part of our lives. My husband and I have always loved music and our children gravitate towards it as well. Everything revolves around music. My children absolutely love to learn the music and lyrics to any given song and before long they are sitting at the piano recreating that song that they just heard. So I guess you could say that we are a music driven family through and through.
We are always hearing them replay music that we listened to as children. We can't believe that they think our music from the 80's and 90's is "cool"? Who would of ever imagined it? Plumb to me could best be described as a fresh voice with an old school approach. Her sound along with her lyrics comes and meets you where you are at. She just "gets" it. This latest album is soothing yet completely and totally raw. She took her own healing processes and gave them to us to help our brokenness. The 12 song album features my favorite hit Lord I'm Ready Now. This song really resonates with my family and I right now because of our quest to following God's will for our family.
It is a song that leads you to acceptance but doesn't just leave you there it shows you, encourages you, and inspires you to reach for what He is offering. You can now have your own chance at winning a CD of your own. Enter below!
