This is the debut release from the Tennessee-based duo of Molly Reed and Robby Earle and is best described as harmonic pop with lyrics about real-life issues such as faith and perseverance. Their current radio single "Come However You Are" highlights some tasty harmony while there are several other noteworthy tracks. "Somebody Tell Them" is an upbeat and encouraging rallying cry to preach the Gospel; "Leave It Here" calls for us to lay "every layer" of burden on the Lord; and "I Still Believe" is a heart-warming challenge to keep the faith to the end. The melodies and harmonies are what define these songs and Molly Reed's voice is one of the best to be heard from Nashville CCM newcomers for some time. This is a debut album to be proud of and it is no wonder City Harbor are already getting spots supporting such CCM bigtimers as Amy Grant and Francesca Battistelli.

Their songs come from a desire to know Christ and to make Christ known to the world around. As Molly explains, "We're delighted to share the core of who we are by encouraging people to go to Jesus in whatever shape they're in". Molly says: "Come to God and receive His peace, love, grace and rest. That's the heartbeat of our message, a resounding reminder that God is always there."
