Just Breathe features a fittingly simple arrangement for a song about finding space to rest and be with God. Backed by acoustic instruments and brushed drums, lead singer Penny Lyon is given plenty of room, allowing the lyrics to take centre stage.
Fans of classic jazz and early R’n’B vocalists like Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone or of Randy Newman’s storytelling delivery, will find a lot to love here.
Get Out The Boat:
Just Breathe is part of a new album from Out Of The Ashes which launches in May. Entitled ‘Get Out The Boat’ it is the band’s fourth LP.
The new album is full of maritime metaphors as is the song Just Breathe.
“What do we do when we’re in turbulent seas, surrounded by icebergs?
“The answer offered by the group is simple, “Take a second to count the blessings you have… you need a little time with Me.”
