This is Cheryl's debut EP containing four songs. Cheryl and husband Jonny (whose songs feature here) lead worship at New Life Church in Rugby, and the songs fit into a worship framework. Backing is provided by the excellent Speak, Brother although if you are looking for an indie folk album here you will be disappointed. Instead, this a beautifully produced and sung collection of uncluttered songs that would fit into a large worship gathering or devotion time. "I Will Love You" fits the former perfectly, while "Keep Me Routed" is a joy with its gentle piano backing and honest intimate vocals. The EP does not break any new musical ground, but what it does, it does well.
