Kelley has been featured on Cross Rhythms before; the former worship leader at Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship has several releases along a similar vein. This is another soaking album, the style of worship that she would lead at a service, but captured in the studio. The album is a simple affair, there are only six tracks including an instrumental, but together they extend across almost 50 minutes. Kelley's vocal is accompanied by piano and the odd backing vocal. For those that have not experienced soaking music before, the genre consists of a fairly unstructured, improvised and Spirit-led worship with plenty of space and repetition, the idea being that the focus on worship and prayer coupled with the ambience will enhance and release the worship experience. From this point of view, "Here With You" works well. The instrumental "Lost In Love" is the most structured work on here with an ambient drum beat and some vocal backing reminiscent of Enya. This is not an album to listen to for entertainment or backing music, but if used to focus your prayer and worship times it would be a useful resource.
