10 Songs, 36 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

A childhood marked by poverty and abuse echoes in the background of Heather Williams’ first album, This Time Around. But this Florida-based singer/songwriter infuses her Christ-centered songs with a forward-looking sense of hope. This Time Around includes four tracks from her self-titled 2010 debut EP (including the power ballad “Hallelujah”) along with six brand-new tunes. Williams’ assertive alto voice and unguarded songwriting style can deliver big faith anthems like “Start Over” and “You Are Loved” as well as humbler testimonies like “Holes.” She isn’t afraid to get brassy at times, even when beseeching the Lord to repair her broken life (as in “Beautiful Thing”). “Always Been Faithful” comes closest to explicitly alluding to the singer’s difficult upbringing; its words speak powerfully of surrendering sorrow and anger to God. The album’s production merges modern dance pop with classic rock moves, giving Williams’ vocals enough room to smolder and erupt.

Amazing

Wow. Just wow. It's just so beautiful the way she sings with such emotion and her voice is so amazing. All of these songs are breathtaking, but if I had to choose favorites it would be, Always Been Faithful, Beautiful Thing, You Are Loved, and Hallelujah. Whether you're having bad day, or a good one you'll find the perfect song here.
Five stars!!!

Reassurance that I needed

I heard God is still God at a low spot in my daily life and it was truly a message to me from God. The song is so true and fits a lot of situations but in the end God is still God and he holds it all together. Thanxs Heather for letting God talk through you to me and many others out there who need to hear this message.
