Recently I was browsing a post at Incourage and came across a song list by an artist named Christa Wells. I was struck by the deep vulnerability of her music and knew that I had to contact her. Through our dialogue she offered to send me a CD to review. I couldn't have been more ecstatic. But in the back of my mind, I can't wondering who was this Christa and why hadn't I heard of her?
Turns out, most of us probably have heard her music. Haven worked and written for artists like Natalie Grant and Sheryl Crow, Christa Wells is no new comer to the music scene. Still it wasn't until 2009 that Wells released her first solo album entitled Frame the Clouds. Since then she's also released a second album called How Emptiness Sings.
Well's music is lyrical, deep, harmonious, and rich. It speaks of a life deeply lived, experienced and embraced. "On the Mountain" resonates with those moments we all find ourselves striving through this life. We may be standing in front of that mountain, but we still grasp the hope of reaching the top one day.
Frame the Clouds is my go-to album these days where I'm relaxing in the evening or trying to calm the carpool crowd. It goes on the road with us and gets popped in for afternoon rest time. Christa Wells is sure to be on the music scene for years to come. And with a depth like hers, we can all be lucky to hear what's next.
One last surprise...
