Drew Ley - Out of Darkness Into Light [Review]

Drew Ley - Out of Darkness Into Light [Review]

By Wisdom Moon on September 19, 2013

Drew Ley, one of our Worship Writers Network artists, recently released an EP called, Out of Darkness Into Light. It is a well-produced 5-track project with a modern sound.

The album starts off with an upbeat track - “All I Am is Yours”, which is a great song that speaks of surrendering our all to God. It’s a song I can see churches doing on a Sunday morning.

The second track, “Out of Darkness”, features the vocal talent of Kennedy Goins (who also happens to have sung on one of my recent singles). I love her voice! Her vocals really take this song to the next level. I love the chorus, which says: “Out of darkness into light. Let my life be a flame that burns for You. Putting all my past behind. Out of darkness into Your great light.”

Track 3, “Call Upon The Name”, speaks of the grace of God that comes through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is a powerful song filled with the gospel. This song would fit well into an altar call and even during a normal worship set.

“In Every Season”, track 4 on the EP, is a song that starts off very soft and builds. The song is about the different seasons of life and how God is with us through it all. The chorus says: “I will trust You even in valleys. I’ll seek You even in storms. I will love You in every season. My faith is in You, Lord.”

Last, but not least, is “Til He Returns”. The song starts off with the lyrics: “There’s a light at the end of the road…” It is a great theme to end the EP with. A song of hope and of the return of Christ. It’s also a fun song to listen to as far as the production goes.

Drew Ley is a worship leader and songwriter based out of Bossier City, LA. He writes songs that are very fitting for a worship service. They are easy to sing and full of biblical truth. This EP is very well done...great production, well-written, and great vocal performance. I encourage you to check out the album on iTunes! You can follow Drew on Twitter or Facebook.
