It's easy, frighteningly so, to associate 'pop music' merely with the obnoxious hooks that often take centre stage in mainstream music. Ginny, in her Soul Stride Records debut, reminds us that songs can be crafted with both accessibility and integrity. 'Get In, I'm Driving' (an attention-grabbing title for a blind singer) is full of subtle arrangements that prefer to show their riches over time rather than flaunt themselves in an instant. As the Mississippi born singer/songwriter has shared, the album came after a difficult season of her life which prompted reflection on the question of what's really important. The serene passivity of the album answers: a surrender into the care of the sovereign God who is, after all, "driving" everything. Perhaps reflective of this freshly felt security, Ginny allows musical flourishes that have always remained at the periphery of her palette, closer to the centre; she is more jazz and soul then ever. Her bravest moments are the best of the album, such as "Highest Ground" which experiments with dark string sounds as Ginny rhetorically instructs the world to "keep on turning, 'cause it won't be too long." Glimpses like these reveal that she hasn't quite shown us all she's got yet. Let's hope that with the support of a label behind her once more, Ginny can regain her large CCM following.

Award-winning singer-songwriter releases her first album since being re-signed.

The first collection of new songs from the three time Dove award-winning singer/songwriter in over six years.

This looks to be her strongest project, yet! Owens continues to bridge the gap between CCM and mainstream audiences. Get in Iím Drivin' delivers a unique array of catchy Pop songs with strong R&B, jazz, and soul overtones, while staying lyrically consistent to her profound and inspirational style.
