Running Wild | Posted October 26, 2019
What You Need To Know
When you listen to Love Running Wild, you hear power, confidence, and joy. When you look at Tasha Layton's story, there are periods where that couldn't be further from the truth. Through a journey that included struggling with self-worth, questions about faith, and dreams that seemed out of reach, the truth of Jesus prevailed. Following God's plans, Tasha stepped away from some of the world's biggest stages and onto a path that has produced Love Running Wild.

What It Sounds Like
This EP is described as pop-synth driven, but I think that doesn't do justice to Tasha's powerful vocals. Tasha was invited to join a team in support of a Rihanna/Ke$ha world tour but ultimately chose to join Katy Perry's team for 4 years. The female pop power vocal influence is apparent in this album and I would put this alongside artists like Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato on the mainstream side. I was pleasantly surprised by the sax in "I Belong to You," it was a great '90s throwback while staying fresh.

Spiritual Highlights
If I had to pick a theme from this album, I would say the theme is how we are free and complete when we walk in God's love and grace. Each song takes a piece of this theme, whether it's talking about feeling safe, complete, or feeling like you belong.  

Best Song on the Album 
My pick would have to be "I Belong to You." I think any of these tracks could easily take this, but the sax solo sold it for me.  Well, that's not completely accurate. I love the lyrics that say, "Even at my worst, you gave me your best." This song talks about a God who pursues us despite ourselves.

For Fans Of
Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato

Final Word
Despite periods where it seemed like life was too much and she had doubts about her faith, God's faithfulness showed true for Tasha Layton. Love Running Wild does a great job of speaking truths about God's faithfulness and pursuit of us, even through those periods. I'm excited to see what's in Tasha's future as she continues to walk in God's calling for her.
