To find out the full story behind Dallas singer/songwriter Natasha Owens' third album, turn to Tony Cummings' recent feature on the award-winning artist but it's fair to say that the theme of overcoming is central to this Ian Eskelin-produced offering. Whether it's defeating anxiety ("Fear Less") or doubt ("Get Behind Me"), Owens has carefully crafted a selection of songs that promote trusting in God as the solution to our worries with lyrics that obviously come from personal experience. Kicking off with the delightfully '80s-tinged "Escape", Eskelin and Owens vary the tone throughout with the radio friendly title track stomper and the breezy acoustic guitar-led pop of "Best Days Of My Life" sitting comfortably next to more dance-orientated numbers like "Race To Be Run" and the aforementioned "Get Behind Me" - all complemented by a fine vocal performance from Owens that sits somewhere between classic pop and new country. A cover of Bright City's "Rock Of Our Salvation" and the heartfelt "Surrender" round off a release full of depth and meaning.
