EDITORS’ NOTES

The solo debut by Bethel Music’s Steffany Gretzinger is an intimate worship project that opts for rawness over pop polish. Repetitive lyrical chanting and emotional outbursts, as on “Open Up Let the Light In,” create the impression we’ve stumbled onto someone’s personal prayer time. Gretzinger explores themes of growth, pain, and healing through a spiritual lens, laying bare her thoughts and feelings for the benefit of all within earshot. The simple honesty of tracks like “I Spoke Up” give voice to the little moments that fill our lives with meaning.

About Steffany Gretzinger

Part of the Bethel Music family, Steffany Gretzinger has worked primarily as a worship leader, but her powerful singing and praise & worship songwriting have been featured on several Bethel Music songs and albums. Bethel Music isn't a group per se, but a Christian praise & worship collective centered around Bethel Church in Redding, California and the ministry of Bill Johnson. Part church, part publishing house, part label, and home to singers, groups, musicians, and songwriters like Gretzinger, Brian & Jenn Johnson, Jeremy Riddle, William Matthews, and many others, Bethel Music has released collections of musical praise & worship gatherings, including The Loft Sessions in 2012, which was recorded live in a refurbished loft over several nights of worship sessions, and 2013's Tides -- Gretzinger was heavily involved with both. She released her debut solo album, The Undoing, featuring 11 of her praise & worship songs in a stripped-down, intimate piano and guitar style, in 2014. Early 2018 saw the release of the single "Save Me" in anticipation of the arrival of her sophomore full-length, Blackout, which was issued later that March. ~ Steve Leggett
