Warrior [edit]
by Natasha Owens | Genre: AC/Inspo | Release Date: March 29, 2019

Award-winning singer / songwriter Natasha Owens globally releases her third, full-length album, Warrior, March 29 from Radiate Music.

“I want to show people that they can make it too,” Owens says. “Being a warrior means that my wounds have healed, but I still have the scars to prove it. The scars remind me that I don’t have to worry about the next battle because I know God will be standing with me.”

This overcomers attitude was put to the test as Owens nearly died last year following a diagnostic, arteriogram procedure that accidentally punctured an artery. Following this procedure that was meant to help with a condition following a car wreck that happened 17 years ago, doctors removed her top rib, as well as several different muscles.

Up at 3 a.m. one-morning facing terrible nerve pain, Owen’s admits, “I was bawling, so tired and worn down from hurting for so long. Then God just came in, calmed me down and spoke to me. He said that there are so many things in life you don’t have control over. You’ll have to let Me have control, trust in Me that I’ve guided you this far and I’m not gonna let you down now.”

A Story of Perseverance | Posted March 25, 2019
What You Need To Know:
The songs that you hear from Natasha Owens are born from a journey that has held both great joy and great sorrow. With her debut album, I Made It Through, she chronicled the devastating loss of her father, the crippling depression that held her in the aftermath, and the hope she found as Jesus led her to emotional healing through music ministry. Award-winning We Will Rise, a sophomore release that offered soaring encouragement in times of hardship, followed in 2017. With a lot of life behind her since her last release, including a near-death experience during a diagnostic procedure, Natasha is taking her story of overcoming hope and sharing it in her third full-length album, carried by a title that sums up the artist perfectly--Warrior

What it Sounds Like:
Warrior, as suggested by its name, sounds triumphant from the opening notes of "Escape." With upbeat moments that offer melodic encouragement ("Warrior," "Race To Be Run," "Get Behind Me") alongside worshipful tracks that make space for reverent praise ("Fear Less," "Rock Of Our Salvation," "Surrender"), this album covers all the bases on the sonic landscape. 

Spiritual Highlights
Owens touches on a variety of topics with Warrior, from the importance of love in our lives ("Just Love") and the authority we have in Christ over our doubt and anxieties ("Get Behind Me," "Fear Less"), to the faithfulness of Christ when we put our trust in Him ("Surrender," "Rock of Our Salvation"). With the attitude of a triumphant overcomer, songs like "Best Days of My Life" and the title track offer encouragement for listeners in need of spiritual uplifting. 

Best Song on the Album:
With hope and encouragement spilling out of every song, the title track stands tall as the best song on Warrior. Lyrically, the song is both honest and victorious: "I am beat up and bruised, but I see glimpses of glory when I stand with You / I'm a warrior.

For Fans Of
Hannah Kerr, JJ Weeks, Mandisa 
Final Word
Natasha Owens has always been an artist determined to spread a message of hope with her work--Warrior definitely continues that effort successfully. The album offers truths of Scripture wrapped in both fun and worshipful melodies, creating an uplifting listen for fans as Owens continues to make her mark on the CCM community with her story of undying perseverance in the face of difficulty. 

Buy Warrior on Apple Music or stream it on Spotify.
