I was first introduced to the music of Ginny Owens when I heard the song “If You Want Me To” several years ago. It was a song that really spoke to me and continues to speak to me each time I hear it. The effortlessness in her voice as she sings songs that range from jazz to pop are unmistakeable. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to not only review her new CD, but also give one away!
“Get In I’m Driving” is a great mix of a wide variety of music. At times I felt like I was listening to something similar to Norah Jones. The soothing vocals that come so easily to Ginny Owens are soft to the ears and easy to listen to. The lyrics and melodies are quick and easy to remember. It’s a nice CD to pop in for a long drive or a day in the office (where I listened to it on repeat several times). “Get In I’m Driving” is available on Tuesday, September 13th. I highly recommend it if you’re in search of something new and different.
I also have the pleasure of giving one CD away! All you need to do is leave a comment below. I will pick one luck winner on Thursday night. Feel free to tweet the link to your friends as well.
About Ginny Owens:
A three-time Dove Award winner, including the Gospel Music Association’s 2000 New Artist of the Year recipient, and multiple ASCAP Award winner, Ginny Owens has sold nearly one million albums. A top performer on the Christian radio charts with hits like “If You Want Me To,” “Free” and “I Wanna Be Moved,” among others, Owens’ music has impacted mainstream audiences at Lilith Fair, the Sundance Film Festival and the White House. Her music has received widespread film and television placement, including songs on the popular WB series’ “Roswell” and “Felicity.” Owens was featured on national television, including NBC’s “Today” and CNN, for her contribution to help rebuild New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.
Born and raised in Jackson, Miss., Owens was discovering melodies on the piano almost before she could complete a sentence. Songs began to emerge from her fingers as the vision began to leave her eyes and by the age of three. A degenerative eye condition left Owens completely blind. Despite her physical challenge, Owens pursued a music career. Songs provide a window into a world Owens can’t see and an outlet for her to express her thoughts and dreams. Owens’ unique musical style and inspirational lyrics continue to appeal to Christian and mainstream audiences alike.
