about my album This One's Yours
My parents recently cleaned out my old room and delivered a box of my childhood belongings to me. Said box contained my journal from middle school and I was amused to discover that my twelve-year-old self put hearts around the names of my crushes. What can I say? I’m a romantic at heart. Or something like that.
But when I wasn’t decorating my crushes’ names, I was dreaming of a particular boy, the one who would become the love of my life one day. And as I grew in age and anticipation, I wondered what fun it would be to fall in love with him.
Eventually that boy came along and inspired many of the songs on This One’s Yours - lighthearted, upbeat celebrations of the fun in falling. Then that romantic in me decided the entire album should be about love. And since love is more than just falling, I threw in a song about staying, a song about expecting, and a song about rescuing, for good measure.
It was my honor to work with the talented Will Hunt (Bethany Dillon, Robbie Seay Band) and my special joy to record these songs with a bun in the oven. To my delight, the husband contributed musically to the album, too (he can whistle with the best of ‘em).
These little ditties are my endearments. Declarations of new love, promises of lasting love, gratitude for a Love that saves.
I hope they get your toes tapping!
