Description of Becoming, The by Jenny Simmons
We first met Jenny Simmons as the frontwoman for the Dove Award-nominated band Addison Road, but after a successful decade together, the group realized it was time to pursue new dreams. Now, with her solo debut, Simmons takes the next step in becoming exactly who she was meant to be.
Fittingly, "The Becoming" is about moving forward, taking risks, and trusting God to be there to catch us after those frighteningly big leaps of faith. The songs, each penned by Simmons, are refreshingly authentic, using spare arrangements that highlight the raw honesty of her vocals. Tracks like "Heaven Waits For Me," with its make-the-most-of-each-day message, and "This I Know," a great reminder to put aside our perfectionistic ways, will resonate with anyone and everyone. But it's the anthemic "Broken Hallelujahs" that really highlights how far Simmons has come. She's no longer the idealistic college student who started Addison Road. Her faith has been tested and her Bible is well worn, giving her stories to tell of lessons learned and a God who is more faithful than we could ever imagine.
