What You Need To Know
Taylor Tripodi is an independent singer/songwriter from Cleveland, Ohio with a beautiful voice, and powerful lyrics. After she served as a youth minister for two years, she had a desire to bring hope to hurting people. She decided to pursue a full-time career as a musician and worship leader. Recently, Taylor released her third album, Awakening. One of Taylor's biggest musical influences is Audrey Assad, who is also a Catholic artist. You can hear the similarities to Audrey in Taylor's music. And, her peaceful melodies in all of her songs.
What it Sounds Like
Taylor's worship style is similar to For All Season's, and I'm all for that. Her voice is absolutely beautiful, and her biblically rooted lyrics tie it all together. Her song "We Are Alive" sings of how we are alive in Jesus. And, her song, "Stand In Awe" tells of how incredible and awesome God is.
Some albums don't speak a whole lot about Jesus; however, this album speaks of Jesus in every single song, and I really love that. The songs on Awakening speak of the glory and splendor of God, and speaks of how we are alive in Christ, like in Taylor's song, "The Dark Is Not Your Home." This song, as well as "We Are Alive," reflects Ephesians 2:4-5, which says, "But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions--it is by grace you have been saved."
Best Song on the Record
The best song on the record would have to be the title track, "Awakening." Taylor shared in a story behind the song video, that the song speaks of how God is pursuing us and wants to speak life into us. I love how this song is an upbeat worship tune. And, I love the message behind it. "Awakening" is a song that you'll want on repeat. "Awakening, I'm awakening / Spirit come alive in me / awakening, I'm awakening / Your love it sings over everything / I'm awakening."
For Fans Of
For All Seasons, Audrey Assad, Meredith Andrews, Kellie & Kristen
Taylor has a gifted voice, and, hopefully, we'll hear even more new music from her soon. It can be hard to find new female worship artists. So, if you're looking for a worship album from a new female artist, I suggest you listen to this one. You can stream Awakening now on Spotify.
