Worship artist Sarah Reeves has joined Sparrow Records and is releasing her debut album “Sweet Sweet Sound” EP on 4/21/09. She is a nineteen-year-old Alabama native, and was introduced to Sparrow Records by Plumb lead singer Tiffany Lee and her husband Jeremy after hearing Sarah open for Plumb. With zealous faith and a love of music early on, Reeves first exercised her songwriting and vocal abilities as a participant in her church’s fine arts program. Consistently placing first at local as well as regional competitions, Reeves was moved by the receptiveness of young people to her message—one of power and freedom in the Holy Spirit. She has since made it her goal to serve God by leading young people into a lifestyle of worship and adoration to Him.
Sarah co-wrote “Sweet Sweet Sound” and “Let Us Rise” with Nashville veteran Ed Cash, who has written hit songs with Chris Tomlin, Bebo Norman, Bethany Dillon and Vicky Beeching. This EP serves as an excellent primer for Sarah’s music and ministry. “Sweet, Sweet Sound” is a worship-inducing song distinguished by Sarah's sweet vocals which immediately reminded me of Leigh Nash, Ginny Owens and also fellow newcomer Joy Lippard. There is an abandonment in her songs that compels listeners to dive deep into worship with her. All six songs are scripture based with upbeat songs like “Fresh Anointing” and “My Savior” and there are yearning prayer songs like the sweetly melancholy piano ballad, “Come Save”, which is one of my favorite songs on this very solid debut album. As Sarah explains, “I want this world to know the unconditional love of Jesus. This is a cry of desperation that God would come save our land.”
Great debut album and I liked all of the songs a lot, especially “Sweet Sweet Sound” and “Come Save”. I am very impressed by Sarah’s singing and songwriting and find her style to be similar to Bethany Dillon, Vicky Beeching and Ginny Owens.
