Songs From The Storm
Carter aims to encourage people to keep on fighting on his debut release, Songs from the Storm, a project filled with a wide array of melodic breaks and jams.
"Eternal Life" is a hand-clapping/foot-stomping song that recalls good old fashioned "church". It is one of those numbers that goes on for a while, and deservedly so.
SOV shines on the traditional "Put Your Trust" while the lead singer ad libs, doing her share of squalls.
"Great Day" is nicely sung by both Carter and choir. The lyrics take their cue from Psalms 118:24. The jubilation continues with "Rejoice" featuring a jam session by the musicians.
The organ and piano introduction alone, for "Ride Out Your Storm" is enough to put the song on repeat. Keep listening, and it brings you right back to the beautiful compositions heard on Gospel radio so frequently during the 80’s and early 90’s. It features a trio of singers whose sound is reminiscent of the Hawkins Family.
Songs are worship and adoration take prominence on the project. Strings and lovely singing by the background vocalists accent the ballad, He's God..." On "We’ve Come to Worship", the call and response has a bit of a African feel to it. It's definitely one of the best songs on the album.
Songs from the Storm deserves a listen and reassures those wondering if the glorious days of choir songs were gone. Not from this artist!
