Tammy Trent "Sunny Days"

Nearly five years ago, one of the biggest voices in Christian music came back powerfully with her new album "Stronger". It dealt with the hardships Tammy Trent had been through; yet, the beauty of the hope that she held made her stronger. Now she’s back again with a revitalized and fresh sound, trading the more adult contemporary pop sounds for a more electronic pop sound. "Sunny Days", in its totality, is a proclamation of joy.

From beginning to end, Sunny Days is an adrenaline packed release. The beats are made in a way that catches the ear and are very well crafted. Despite her musical sound changing, her message has not. “The gifts you give/Very life that I live/You are my reason/I’ll give you praise” she sings on the opening song, which also serves as the title track.

The following songs continue to point to the Hope that overflows from her heart into every single melody sung on this album. The infectious hook "We’re Letting Go" proclaims “God is always near/We don’t have to fear/And He’s gotta plan you know/And in Him we overflow.” This message is further reaffirmed in "Fall at Your Feet"- “In your arms we can fall/You won’t let go/On your name we can call/You bring us hope (Chorus) We bring our broken lives/You hear our desperate cries/All as we fall at your feet…” This proclamation fills the other songs on "Sunny Days"- "Glow in the Dark", "Welcome Home", "I’m Running", and "Stronger Now".

In the middle of all of the synths and electronic beats, Tammy takes a little time to offer a slower, refreshing set of songs such as "Your Grace is Enough", the Hillsong worship anthem "You’ll Come", and "Don’t Let Him be the Last to Know."

The only possible downfall to this album is that because it is a musical transition from AC to more electronically inclined beats, in some portions of the songs, her voice doesn’t seem to quite blend with the synths. It is new territory, so there is room for growth.

Sunny Days is literally like the sun breaking through the clouds on a rainy day. When listening, be prepared to either have your toes tapping or be dancing around the living room when listening to Tammy Trent’s latest collection.

The sound must have been a maddening echo that haunted him at first, tormented by the rooster’s crow that mocked his empty proclamation of loyalty. For three days, his faith lay in the grave with the Savior’s body, darkened by the memory of his public desertion.
