EXHALE by Plumb {Review and Giveaway}

Hi Friends,
Today I get share about a new album from Plumb entitled EXHALE! I had never heard of Plumb, a.k.a. Tiffany Arbuckle Lee, before now, so I can't compare this album to her earlier releases. I really enjoy her voice and her message. Worship songs are so important to me, and I have a few new favourites after listening to this album.

About 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.

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.

Personal message from Plumb:
Hey everyone, I just wanted to take a minute to share a personal note about my new album EXHALE. The title comes from something my pastor said recently: “We do not exist for us….we exist to share the grace and love so freely given to us all….we breathe it in, it changes us, it makes us new and then we share it – we EXHALE.” 

I breathed in a life-changing grace when God met me in my darkest place of brokenness after my husband left me, and He changed me and gave me hope.  Then, He redeemed a dead marriage in a way only He could…through a miracle… and we remarried.  I am SO THANKFUL for the redemption. SO THANKFUL for that change. SO THANKFUL for that grace.  So I made this new record as one huge, gigantic love letter to the One who carried me during all of that. EXHALE represents the hope of the entire record…that we will each breathe in that grace and then exhale it. That is why we exist!

My Thoughts:
What an incredible testimony of Father bringing life from things that were dead! I think you will be encouraged by the message of hope, resurrection power and grace. There are 12 tracks on this album, most of which are co-written by Plumb. I am always happy to see original music on a new album. I will admit to loving that she covered a couple of songs, too, though, especially Brian and Katie Torwalt's "When You Walk Into The Room." I could listen over and over to that one. I also like the simplicity of "Faithful" and the release of worship on "Champion."
