This is the debut EP from the couple who are leading worship at Holy Trinity, Hastings. This five- track collection contains their own compositions and provides evidence of something very special. There are songs of such intimacy that will stop the listener in their tracks such as "You Are With Me", where Bethanna sings beautifully over a steady drum/keyboard backing with lyrics that pulls in the listener, as she declares she "will not allow my fears to take control as you are with me." "Jacob's Song" is another standout, an honest, simple plea for more of God. There are more energetic moments as well such as the opening track "All My Hope", which has all the hallmarks of a song which would connect with a big congregation. The production here is also exceptional, courtesy of Steve Harding and the late Tom Mills. This is a truly outstanding debut.
