Jamie Grace – Refreshingly Sweet

Refreshing. Sweet. Those are the two words that come to mind when I try to describe Jamie Grace. You may have heard her hit single “Hold Me” over the air waves… let me tell you, it’s just a taste of the platter of goodness her debut CD dishes up!

Jamie’s sound is a mix of Mandisa and Adele… with maybe a little Jason Mraz style thrown in for good measure. The result is an infectious blend of acoustic pop that is, in a word, delightful.

Titled “One Song at a Time”, the CD unfolds that way, kind of chronicling (is that a word?) Jamie’s journey to faith. The earliest songs are a little light on theology, but nevertheless embrace the idea that God loves us, and in a big way. The tunes are catchy, the messages important, and the entire collection of tunes is absolutely REFRESHING. Not just in a “not-boring-keep-me-interested” kind of way… but it a way that speaks to the soul and makes it SING.

So. I’m impressed by the music. But wait… there’s more. šŸ™‚

Jamie’s story itself is inspiring. Diagnosed at age 11 with Tourette’s Syndrome, Jamie’s life has not been without its challenges. Yet she kept going, in spite of it all, and began posting her own videos to youtube. TobyMac kept an eye on her for years, and eventually knew he HAD to get involved. In addition to contributing to her hit single “Hold Me”, he produced her debut offering. Says tobyMac, “I’ve not been this excited to work with an artist in a long time.” I can see (hear?) why.

My advice? Grab up a copy of “One Song at a Time”. Now. You’ll be SO glad you did!
