Composer and songwriter of spiritual music known as Brenda Rachel has released her latest EP record, “In This Moment.” The album has been released on the Brenda Rachel independent record label, entirely without support from the corporate music power structure. It comprises nearly 25 minutes of uplifting spiritual listening in six original tracks. Featuring powerful and evocative vocals by co-arranger Jon Hemingway and Una St. Clair, “In This Moment” by Brenda Rachel et al is a true work of celestial inspiration with a clear and exultant message to its hearers.
Brenda Rachel cites as main artistic influences her mother, Barbara Solis, and a broad array of popular legends including Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston, Marvin Gaye, Diana Krall, Sara Brightman, Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Michael Buble, Clint Black, Jesse Cook, Yanni, Michael Bolton, and Sara MacLachlan. Her own musical background began at the young age of six on piano, but the Canadian-born Brenda Rachel states plainly that the songs which make up “In This Moment” are not entirely of her own creation.
Brenda Rachel writes of this, “I am a ‘Messenger for the Angels’ delivering words of encouragement, inspiration, hope, love, peace and joy. My songs were channeled to me by the Angels in 2004 when I was unable to walk for several months due to bilateral plantar fasciitis in both feet. I would lay on the couch and ask God and the Angels what they wanted me to learn from this experience and why was I in such excruciating pain.”
She goes on to impart that within hours, the EP’s title track was being channeled to her by Angels, complete with lyrics, corresponding melody and chord progressions.
“Over the next 1.5 years,” she writes, “21 additional songs with both music and lyrics were channeled to me.
