Multi-genre recording artist, songwriter, and author PLUMB is finalizing her seventh studio album, titled EXHALE, for release May 4, 2015. EXHALE follows the tour-de-force success of her previous album NEED YOU NOW, an intense collection that coincided with the artist’s personal struggle in her marriage up through her family’s restoration. This story ultimately lead to the artist writing her memoir, titled ‘Need You Now: A Story of Hope’. EXHALE is the resulting collection of songs filled with worship and thanksgiving.
The concept of EXHALE was born from a Sunday sermon at PLUMB’s home church in Nashville, TN. Much of Plumb’s message in her 2014 memoir was focused on hope, with her firsthand testimony being, “Hope is oxygen and we all need to breathe.” In this particular sermon, her pastor, Pete Wilson of Crosspoint Church, reinforced the concept that Christians do not exist for themselves but rather to come into church to breathe in grace, hope and truth so that they can then go out and “exhale” into their surrounding community.
