Angie Drake is a lady singer/songwriter who's based in West Yorkshire, and her ministry for the last 15 years has been to women who find themselves in similar situations to the one that she herself experienced: pregnant, penniless, on the verge of a nervous breakdown, and with a father who'd just been diagnosed with cancer. Her songs reflect her experiences, and her mentor in matters musical is Joe King, who knows a thing or two about music and ministry to the hurting. Joe plays piano, with Andrew Cleaton producing, and the album was mixed by Richard (Eden's Bridge) Lacy. All songs are Angie's own work, the mood is generally downbeat and gentle, apart from track 10, "Light Of The World" which is more poppy, with some good electric guitar work from Murray McEwan. However, I have a couple of concerns, one of which is Angie's voice, which is not as strong as I would like, and a tad inaccurate with some of its pitching. The other problem is the sound quality which sounds a little tinny and echoey. This might be my speakers but is more likely to be too much reverb.

Hiya could you please let me know if or where I can purchase this CD as the one I have no longer plays, (I think it is due to the wear and tear as I play it constantly). It would be much appreciated.
God bless
