Positively Soulful, inspirational and rockin’!
From the opening high energy salvo of drums, keyboard and guitar on the title song to the reflective closer, “Legacy”, Claudia’s pristine pop production and vocal delivery give a genuine world class feel to this new collection of classic Posi music.
Claudia touches on many topics that would find their way into Unity and New Thought services. And she varies the styles and tempos so seamlessly that you never get bored or restless listening, in fact, I found myself eagerly anticipating the next song, not knowing what to expect.
Claudia is a joyful singer whose voice has many timbers and styles. The musicians she collected to back her up on this CD will hold their own against any mainstream pros.
If your church has a band, you will have a blast learning and performing these tunes. If you are a one-person music department, never fear, there is enough beauty and simplicity in the well crafted songs for you to harvest many gems. (Claudia penned all but two of the songs on this collection, “The Truth About Wings” by Donna Britton Kat Korac and Megan Conner and Rickie Byars’ classic chant “Oyaheya”.)
If you simply love great music, pick this one up today to add to your listening collection. “Fearless” made a loyal fan out of me.
Among my favorites:
SHINE – segued from the rockin’ opener, “Fearless” into this classic Reggae anthem keeps the energy high and will have your congregation singing along, “Shine the light into the world!”
I RISE IN YOU – a beautiful sweet prayer of rebirth filled with visuals and metaphor and punched up with a gospel chorus.
AS YOU BELIEVE - . . . you will receive. It’s the law of mind action in a lilting 6/8 easy listening style.
MORE THAN YOU KNOW – a timeless and relevant message for us to embrace in a gentle 16 beat ballad; “Beyond your comprehension, you are loved, more than you know.”
