With a fresh and energizing sound, Stephanie Boyd’s debut album Touching Sky will put a smile on your face and a skip in your step. Unique lyrics, heartfelt vocals and top quality production will inspire and uplift you. With brand new original songs and a novel take on some favorite hymns, this CD will stay with you every day of the week.
Stephanie Boyd’s debut CD offers a mix between artists Hilary Weeks and Mindy Gledhill. Her contemporary Christian sound has uplifting, clean lyrics and mixes that hold appeal for both teens and adults. I loved hearing Scatter Sunshine, a popular hymn accented by folk undertones as well as a sax. We listened to Touching Sky on repeat play during a road trip and found each time we heard the songs we enjoyed them and found familiar nuances in the melodies that blend church music with popular tunes you would find on your radio stations.
The message through out the playlist is one of confidence in who you are– a child of God. One of my favorite picks from the album, Good for the Soul reminds us to take time out to be quiet and still. This is a great music pick as a gift for music lovers and the tween or teen in your family. Thanks so much to Stephanie and Deseret Book for helping us add another wonderful CD to our family playlist.
