“I hope you will be able to hear the heart, soul, prayer, and effort that went into creating this new project.” – from the cover letter written by Ginny Owens in the CD mailed to me for review.

I couldn’t have described the new CD by Ginny Owens, “Get In, I’m Driving” any better – it has the heart, soul, prayer and effort of a beautiful spirit.  Ginny Owens shares her immense talent with us in this music.  You can hear her strong, deep feelings in every note and every lyric.

Ginny Owen’s voice and style, other than in the first track, remind me of a combination of Diana Krall and Norah Jones.  She succeeds equally in blues and folk songs.  Heartbreak comes through in, “Rain”  but hope comes through just as strongly in “Before You Fly”.  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 also been part of the popular TV series’, “Roswell” and “Felicity”.  Her music is appealing to not only Christian music fans.

Ginny Owens was born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi where she 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 – by the age of three she was completely blinded from a degenerative eye condition.  “Songs provide a window into a world Owens can’t see and an outlet for her to express her thoughts and dreams.”

This is one of my favorite CDs of the year – it is truly beautiful.  Ginny Owens voice and the simple musical accompaniments on piano and guitar are not only inspirational and entertaining.
