ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rebekah Gilbert grew up singing in the church, but it wasn’t until she was in her twenties that she realized singing was her passion and dream. She set out figuring out how to realize that dream and passion, only to crash and burn before she ever started.

In 2010, Rebekah began to write consistently, believing the dream and passion of singing to be dead. Her lifelong love of writing formed into a new passion and dream, and she created the blog "A New Song To Sing" to share her story of grace and mercy. Through blogging, she realized sparks of her love of singing remained under ashes of the mess she’d made of her life.

In the spring of 2012, Rebekah teamed up with producer George Vinson to co-write the five-song EP, “Captured.” It shares Rebekah’s emotional journey of how God broke down her barriers of pompous pride, and in their places, built bridges of mercy. It is her desire that through “Captured,” people will experience healing…that they will be captured and freed by Love and set in a place where God makes all things new.

Press:

There’s nothing superficial about Rebekah Gilbert, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.

“I don’t like surface chatter,” the Birmingham singer-songwriter said between sips of a Starbucks pumpkin spice latte, which she identifies as her favorite indulgence. “I want to share my heart and get to know somebody else’s heart.”

Gilbert’s self-described passion for getting beneath the surface of relationships, feelings, and circumstances has produced “Captured,” a five-song EP set for release later this month. Named for the last song in the collection, it will be available on CD and for digital download.

“A couple of the lyrics are, ‘You have captured my heart/And your love has freed me.’ The song idea is that God, although never named, captures us with his unfailing love, even when others fail us or we fail ourselves.”

Although Gilbert doesn’t shy away from talking about her faith and religious themes can be detected in her songs, she said her aim isn’t to preach through her lyrics.

“They’re certainly not churchy kind of songs. They’re definitely focused on grace and mercy, but they could almost be considered non-Christian. On one level, by using a lot of my past and history, I write for Christians who struggle to live their daily lives, but I write lyrics that don’t have to tell the whole story because I want listeners to identify with songs through their own stories.”

The influence of Gilbert’s experiences is very much present, though, especially one the mother of three went through six years ago.

“It rocked my world,” she said. “I realized I was just playing a game. Out of that came the need to get real, the realization that I’m messed up, but most of you probably are, too, so let’s talk about it.”

One song she particularly thinks listeners will relate to is “Morning,” which she names as her favorite.

“It was birthed out of one of the blogs I write, and it’s about how difficult nighttime can be, especially when you’re going through a tough time. The darkness can seem to go on forever, and you want the morning to come rescue you and wash away the bad things of the night.”

Co-written with Nashville producer George Vinson, the EP’s sound is best described, Gilbert said, as “Americana, grassroots with lots of acoustic guitar and a little bit of a folk feel to it. We want to keep the sound in that direction because it’s a great style for telling stories of deeper truths, infused with the grace and mercy that’s offered to us every day.”

Telling the stories has, she said, helped her work through her own tough times.

“Oh, yeah, it’s been totally therapeutic. I found my own healing through writing and have been able to go on, even though I’m still working and writing my way through it.”
