Originally hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Lex previously recorded as Lex Brodie on the 'Soul Sista: Precious' project. Now she has recorded this eight track mini-album. Now working with Tim Hughes resourcing and training up worship leaders. With Les Moir taking production credits you know this is going to be a quality recording. "Hope" is my favourite track - it has a very restrained, stripped back feel that make the encouraging words stand to the fore. Like all of the Soul Survivor worship leaders Lex clearly has a heart for leading people into God's presence with her pop and (occasionally) country-tinged songs. All the numbers demand another listening and although they are perhaps a bit arranged for adoption by your average worship group they do compel you to listen to the lyrics which (without exception) lift you heavenward. An enjoyable showcase.
