From the opening mellowness of the gentle piano and beautiful alto voice of the Ottowa-based worship leader there's a feeling that you can relax into this album; there will be no shocks, and kicking back, prefereably in a darkened room, will be the order of the day. Kelley's gift, along with her influential producer and keyboard player/programmer Rob Critchley, is to drawn the listener in with music reminiscent of early Iona and David Fitzgerald and allow a message of peace and faith to settle in to heart and mind. There is inspiration, space and prayer all contained in this selection of both sung and instrumental pieces where Kelley has taken co-writing duties for a number of tracks. As well as her easy-on-the-ear voice, Kelley plays some pleasant flute. Highlights include the opening track "Breathe On Me Breath Of God", a lush orchestral interpretation of "My Desire" and a long, relaxing, flute-led "Heaven's Rain".

An intimate and delicate journey into the heart of the Father, Heaven’s Whisper has Kelley Warren leading nine beautiful tracks of worship. Combining instrumental and original songs, Kelley’s wonderful voice and extravagant flute playing lead the listener into sweet worship and passionate surrender.
The project features a fresh arrangement and re-write of Breathe On Me Breath Of God. Kelley has teamed with Robert Critchley to co-write three of the tracks including an orchestral version of My Desire. Also featured are two songs by Dove award winner John Hartley.
Those who enjoy Kelley’s prophetic ministry on the flute will enjoy the title track Heaven’s Whisper as well as the final track Heaven’s Rain. These two instrumental tracks provide close to 20 minutes of soft music for reflection and prayer. The entire project was produced as a ‘Soaking’ resource.
