A former American Idol contestant and former back-up singer for pop star Katy Perry, Tasha Layton delivers hope and encouragement with her debut record, “How Far.” The 10 tracks feature Layton’s powerful voice with solid pop sounds. “I didn’t shy away from any hard emotions with these songs, and I really tried to lean in and hear what God had to say about each of them,” she said in a release. “The album speaks to God’s intimate involvement in our lives, from the mundane to the biggest moments, throughout each and every season. God is in all of those things with us. He cares, he’s kind, and he’s working all things out for our good.” The recording offers Layton’s No. 1 hit “Look What You’ve Done,” and her breakout song, “Into the Sea (It’s Gonna Be Okay)” in the spirit of overcoming. Layton co-wrote nine of the selections and received writing assistance from top Christian artists such as Matthew West, Darrin Mulligan (We Are Messengers), and Aaron Shust. Layton’s music grabs your attention and makes you want to listen. (BEC Recordings)
