Review | Still Believe by Kim Walker-Smith
Still Believe by Kim Walker-Smith
Jesus Culture Music | January 2013
Five years after Here Is My Song, Jesus Culture Music presents Kim Walker-Smith’s much anticipated second solo album, Still Believe. Mostly originals recorded live at Cascade Theater in Redding, California, it features several covers including 'Miracle Maker' by Delirious and 'Waste It All' by Chris McClarney.
The title track 'Still Believe' is the only song solely written by Kim herself. She shared, “The message of the song is saying, ‘I still believe that you are the God who heals, despite anything I may be facing or the mountain in my way, that’s what I hold on to and that’s what I believe.’” This echos through every track on this album as Kim sings with passion and abandon, drawing listeners into the presence of God. Breaking into spontaneous song, the recording captures the essence of Jesus Culture Music and carries the anointing of Kim Walker-Smith’s worship.
Accompanied by a full band with the addition of an orchestral string section, Kim’s husband Skyler features on guitars and percussion. Kim does some exceptional covers on Still Believe, originally by songwriters Chris McClarney, Martin Smith, Tim Hughes and Christa Black.
Still Believe is not only a worship album, it is a declaration of the goodness and faithfulness of God. If you’ve been eagerly waiting for Kim Walker-Smith’s second album, you won’t be disappointed.
