Last week I mentioned how I love praise and worship music. (And I gave away a copy of Christy Nockel’s new CD “Let It Be Jesus”.) This week, I’m happy to be talking about another new Christian Contemporary CD – this one from Plumb.
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.
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.”
Heidi Says . . .
When I first heard Plumb on the radio, I mistook her for Barlow Girl, another CCM group that we really enjoyed listening to (I believe they are no longer performing). There was just something about her sound that reminded me of them. Since then, I’ve been able to identify her voice, and have really enjoyed her music.
I love the messages in this new album. For example, listen to the title song:
So many of the songs on this album speak this same message. It’s as if they are written from a low place. But, the good news is that they are constant reminders that no matter how low we might get, God is there. And there is hope. And God can pick us up and restore us.
Simple, yet profound. Raw, yet beautiful.
