Karyn Williams "Only You" by Grace Thorson (cmaddict) on 2012-08-28 17:48:25
Having never listened to Karyn Williams’ music before, I didn’t know what to expect from listening to her debut album “Only You.” I was extremely curious and excited to hear her music, her style. My first impression was that it was good. Okay, it was more than good, it was really good. Albeit awesome! I was impressed with the lyrics, the flow of her songs, and her overall approach to it all. The whole thing was well executed. And this is one of those few albums where I liked all of the tracks. There were a couple of them that stood out for me; they spoke to my heart, really. And that’s exactly what this album does. It speaks to your heart, your soul.
“Call” is the first track off this album, and also happens to be one of my favorites. I’m more of a fan for music that hits you with a bang, so I instantly liked this one, because that’s what it did. I especially love the lyrics “Call and He’ll come running, to your lowest of lows, there’s nowhere you can go that He can’t find you…” Karyn uses her beautiful voice to encourage and remind us that God is always there for you and me.
In my opinion, “Hey There” is Karyn Williams’ best song. I keep replaying it over and over again. And pretty soon, I guarantee the lyrics will be constantly running through my head. It’s that awesome with words like “Hey there, hey there, I know you’ve been hurting, I know your heart is broken.” Once again, stating that God is by your side, all day, and every day. He knows your hurts and your pains. I LOVE it!
“Possible” is a song that reminded me of the Bible verse found in Matthew 19:26 “With God, all things are possible…” and with lyrics like “I see something they don’t see, every dream, every plan is possible, possible, when it’s in bigger hands, it’s unstoppable, unstoppable, I’m living with a confidence, no matter what I’m up against, there is one who makes it all make sense and with Him, everything is possible.” Your dreams are not impossible when you let God take control. He knows best. Just trust Him.
From Inpop Records “Only You” by Karyn Williams breaks through with incredible force, an album not to be missed! I can honestly say that I’m looking forward to hearing a lot more from Karyn Williams after this. I always hate it when I find an amazing artist and find that they were only able to produce one album. So, I hope she will continue on for a long, long while. She’s got real talent, and I would probably compare her somewhat with Francesca Battistelli. Inspiring, bold, and enthusiastic, I believe, accurately describes Karyn Williams and her music.

Sometimes it’s hard to discern God's voice above the noise in our head and around us. The Bible encourages us to keep listening and keeping trying, because like anything else, we are trained by practice.
