Review Xtra – Lucy Grimble : Overcomer @lucygrimble

Lucy Grimble OvercomerLUCY GRIMBLE : Overcomer. (https://lucygrimble.com)

Lucy is a London based singer/songwriter, who released her album “Created to Worship” recently. She has been writing songs for the church and leading worshippers for many years, both as a solo artist and with her talented band of musicians. Her desire is to create space for anyone to encounter the love of God. Lucy’s own worship flows from a place of personal intimacy and consecration to God, out of which she writes songs that carry a message of freedom, hope and identity. This new single tells of giving thanks through during disappointments and “hopeless places”, as well as asking Jesus for help to see through times of sorrow. It’s a rather choppy affair, musically, that drifts from one tempo to another. Lucy’s voice reminded me of Florence Welch, so that’s no bad thing. The recording was done live and, at times, during the choruses; Lucy’s vocals do get rather lost in the mix. However, overall, it’s a bright number that should garner plenty of radio play. 7/10.
