"CD Review - The True Vine"

Reviewed by Simon Eden

Elizabeth is a singer/songwriter from Nova Scotia, Canada and this collection of soft ballads was written at a time of great trial for the singer. Saying that God is sovereign is one thing but try believing it when your baby just died. The first track on this album "Angel Of My Heart", together with a whole page in the sleeve notes is dedicated to the memory of her departed granddaughter, Gracie. The song conveys the anguish and pain of the family in dealing with the consequences of this tragedy culminating in an angelic visitation to Gracie's sister and father. Remarkably the story ends with Gracie's father and grandfather being baptised. The rest of the album is a collection of clearly sung ballads many of which tell of Christ's Church, described as a "vessel of hope and comfort". Musically, this is in an easy listening style that grandmothers would be comfortable with, similar in style to Jane McDonald singing on her cruise ship. Elizabeth previously toured with The Shepherd Family in the 1990s playing guitar in a country/bluegrass style, but in this, her second solo album, such an orientation is hardly discernable. Elizabeth won two Canadian Christian music awards in 2008 including the People's Choice Artist Of The Year.

From musical productions highlighting the timeless works of such music greats as Cole Porter, Rogers & Hart, and Noel Coward to starring in roles as Edith Piaf and Maria in the Sound of Music, Elizabeth’s extensive award-recognized musical background crosses many genres. In her past musical endeavours, Elizabeth has self-produced several country and bluegrass recording projects, and toured extensively throughout Eastern Canada and the United States in the 1990’s with her family band, The Shepherd Family.

Residing today in Halifax, Nova Scotia, this talented award-winning songwriter and recording artist has enjoyed a focused music career as an Inspirational Christian artist since 1999. The debut of Elizabeth’s first Maja Award winning Inspirational Christian album Living Waters in September 2006 opened the door to the success of multiple National and International ministry tours across Canada, United States, South Korea, United Kingdom, and Mexico. Elizabeth will be completing an 8 city appearance tour of South Africa in January 2012.

2010 saw the launch of two full length CD's and multiple music awards nominations for Elizabeth. Her 13 song collection "The True Vine" launched in February, garnered an international response resulting in extensive radio airplay across United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, Middle East, Far East, North and South Africa as well as the Caribbean. In November of the same year, Her Christmas CD "A Joyous Hallelujah" garnered two 2011 GMA Canada Covenant Award nominations for Seasonal Album of the Year and Traditional/Classical Album of the Year.

Scripturally grounded, proclaiming the truth of God’s word, Elizabeth’s song writing and music speaks intimately into the hearts and souls of those who thirst. Elizabeth's music is more than a mere collection of songs, rather they are vessels of hope and comfort.

In November 2011 Elizabeth will be publishing her brand new 30 song Songbook entitled "Songs of Faith" to include arrangements for Piano, Guitar and Vocals.
