EDITORS’ NOTES

Lara Landon stands out for her smoldering vocal style, well-sculpted melodies, and distinctly personal take on Scripture-based themes. Her sophomore album, Overcome, invites comparisons with Laura Nyro, Sarah McLachlan, and Paula Cole with its piano-centered mix of folk, pop, and soul blended with an unflinching emotional honesty. “This is me—this is me broken,” Landon sings in “Better for the Breaking,” setting a confessional tone for the tracks to follow. With lyrics informed by her personal struggles and her outreach visits to Haiti and homeless shelters in the U.S., she confronts spiritual crises in “Falling” and “Defenseless” and offers comfort in “The Storm” and “Leah.” The album encompasses both stirring worship tunes like “Spirit of the Lord” and inviting, crossover-ready pop numbers like “Closer Than You Know.” A particular standout is “The River,” matching an elegantly composed track with a message of healing for troubled lovers. With production input from CCM veterans Mitch Dane, Steve Wilson, and Brian Hitt, Overcome boasts a luminous, acoustic-centered sound with intriguing Middle Eastern touches.
