IN STUDIO: SINGER/SONGWRITER SOMMER FLOYD PREPS FALL RELEASE OF DEBUT CD, RAY OF LIGHT

April 14, 2016

 

Project Produced by Multi-Dove Award Winner, Steven V. Taylor –

Emerging recording artist Sommer Floyd is in the studio putting the finishing touches on her highly anticipated debut CD, Ray of Light. The project which is slated to release this Fall, is being recorded at Dark Horse Recording Studio in Franklin, Tennessee, in the rolling hills just outside of Nashville. Multi-Dove Award winning producer Steven V. Taylor (Michael W. Smith, Matt Redman, Veggie Tales) is producing the project. A joyful amalgamation of sparkling Pop/Rock, New Country and Contemporary Worship, Floyd’s inaugural release will draw instant comparisons to artists like Kari Jobe, Mia Fieldes, Laura Story and The Band Perry’s Kimberly Perry. Fan favorites include the celebratory “Children of God,” the fun and encouraging Pop-Country anthem, “Drop and Run,” and the gently meandering confessional ballad, “I Need You.”

Floyd allows her natural effervescence to shine through on the exuberant “Ray of Light,” and reveals her vulnerable heart in the lovely and poignant title cut, “Stronger,” a song she wrote for a friend battling leukemia. Her peace-evoking Comtemporary Worship hymn, “How You Love Me,” could easily become a staple in church services across the country with its lovely chorus: “You are worthy, worthy/ I fall down at Your feet crying holy, holy/ Your love is all I need and Your beauty takes my breath away from me.”
