ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"My Defense" is a collection of songs I've written over the past 4 years. The subject matter is deeply personal but at the same time I feel it is easily relatable. Although the inspiration behind each of the songs is unique in its own right, there is a common labor that can be identified. I can most easily compare it to when Paul says to the Philippians to, "work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure." (Philippians 2:12-13) To be in relationship with God is an unmatchably beautiful and exhilarating experience, and He is worthy of glory and honor and praise. I do praise God, but what you'll find in these songs is more a depiction of the "working out" of my salvation than the dwelling and resting in God's love.

It's important to rest in God's love, and I try to do it every day, but sometimes it takes work to rest. This is my work, and the reason I share is so it can encourage others in their working, to get people thinking, and to inspire people to praising for what the Lord has brought them through. It is good to look back and remember what the Lord has taught us. It is good to embark upon a journey of discovering the nature of our God and of His perfect salvation with the help of His Word and His Spirit. It is good, when we are in the thick of things, to trust in God alone and lean not on our own understanding. Wherever we are, whatever season we are in, it is good to seek God.

These are not congregational worship tunes, but they are a part of how I worship and a map of how I have sought God. These songs are the place where I am the most vulnerable, and now I'm making them available to strangers. It's a little scary, but I know that I have been helped in my walk by the songs of strangers, and I would feign keep for myself what I could just as easily share with others. Please enjoy this small gift. First and foremost, I'm a girl who loves Jesus. I'm also a girl who loves words, particularly written words. My lyricism is a way for me to communicate what is meaningful to me, and to work through the things which God is progressively revealing to me, in the most concise way I can manage. I've always loved music, I've always loved singing. I can't say it's something that's always loved me. Artistry is something I've wrestled to grow into, and I'm convinced that many of the things which may seem unique about my vocal style and songwriting have been developed to make up for that which I was lacking, in a conventional sense.

I've been writing songs for almost 15 years, and when people ask me what "style" of music I sing, I just tell them I'm primarily a lyricist. I am protective of my lyrics, and of my melodies I must concede, but I love to hand those two elements over to other artists and musicians and see how they are enhanced and changed into something different in the hands of a variety of craftsmen.

My Defense has been produced by my dad, Guy Moon, and I felt honored and blessed every day of production to be sharing in the process with him and watching in wonder at the ideas he seems to snatch out of thin air. The musicians who have been a part of the process have each added their own unique flavor, and I have truly loved watching how transforming an effect the parts, and the players, have on my bare bones of a song. My Defense has been a truly collaborative process.

My hope in my music in general, and with this album specifically, is that people would be blessed, would be encouraged, and most importantly would grow in their understanding of how deep and high and great and wide the love of Christ is for them, and how far God's grace reaches to make a way for us to dwell in that depth and height and width of so great a Love. God truly is good, and has shown Himself in every way to be so!
