Prolific Manchester-based singer/songwriter David Woodman's latest ad hoc release finds him move from away from his usual blues, country and (most recently) hymnal leanings by entering into meditational territory with this contemplative offering that seeks to soothe the weary believer. On this occasion, Woodman speaks from God's point of view with nothing much more than a floating synth wash and what sounds like some EBow guitar and this uncluttered approach, along with the man's intimate vocals, allows the message of the peace that only Jesus can offer to reach deep into the listener's soul. A timely song given the worry and fear that a lot of people will be experiencing due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
