Jenny Simmons admits she hesitated before starting a solo music career. The former lead singer of the Christian band Addison Road asked the Lord for direction after the group disbanded last year. It was an unsettling time, but out of the process came her first project—The Becoming.
In this encouraging record, Simmons sings about faith, hope, dreams, and freedom, all pointing to Christ. It has a pop sound with an occasional twinge of country. Simmons’s voice is sweet and edgy and pleasing to the ear. This album is for anyone stuck in a rut or held back by fear, anyone who needs a renewed call to trust God and move forward in abandonment and faith. (Fair Trade)
