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.”
Plumb. A new artist to me in so many ways, yet the one thing that caught my attention about this marvelous artist is her hauntingly stunning voice. It is just beautiful and soothing. The overall theme of the CD is that regardless of where we have been, He will always be there for us. Each song is special in its own way but I especially loved "Great is our God", "Champion", and "Broken Places", but honestly it was a fantastic album. As I ponder over all the difficult experiences I have journeyed over the last few years while listening to Exhale, each song met me where I am and it was exactly the music that I needed to hear! Well worth the listen to be sure.
I highly recommend this CD and give it a huge thumbs up!
