LAMPLIGHT OUT NOW

Lamplight

Amber chose Lamplight to be the album’s title track as it seems to sum up so much about who God is – the light that has come into the world to save us from the darkness of sin and death.

Each song on the Lamplight CD has, as its root, Scripture combined with lessons learnt from real-life experiences and sermons. There is a story behind each song through which Amber hopes to show that God’s Word is alive, true and relevant for each situation we face. God is the same from age to age and His Word is timeless. Amber uses her music to present truth in song and to guide the listener to God’s Word as the only source of truth. As opposed to our feelings, impressions and opinions that so easily lead us astray – God’s Word is sure, unchanging, entirely true and powerful and His Spirit uses His Word to guide us, protect us, correct us, comfort us, teach us and grow us. God sent His perfect Son, Jesus, to die in our place and to take the wrath we deserve for our rebellion against Him. If we turn to Him in repentance, He forgives us and draws us into a loving relationship with Him as our loving Father, King and Saviour because this is what He created us for. He wants to use us as instruments to point others to Him as the only true source of hope, joy, peace, light and love in an increasingly dark and desperate world.

Once in studio Amber recorded the demos for the album with Alan Judd and Shermin Bhagalu and then Brent Quinton and John Ellis were brought in to help her achieve the sound she was looking for. Weekly brainstorming sessions in studio got the creative juices running and John seemed to have a knack for grasping the sound Amber was looking for, resulting in a cohesive, fulfilling and fun recording process.

Amber’s brief to Brent and John was to try and achieve a timeless sound that would have relevance and appeal both now and years down the line. By God’s grace, this has led to the use of a wide range of instruments and a sound not limited to one particular genre, whilst still maintaining thematic unity and musical cohesion. We hope you enjoy it and are thoroughly nourished by what you hear!

Jesus refers to himself as “the light of the world” (John 8:12), God is referred to in John 1-1:5 as being light - “This is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all”. God’s Word is also referred to being light in Psalm 110:105 - “Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light to my path”. Christians are also called to let their light shine before others in a dark world (Matthew 5:16). The themes of light and darkness are so prominent in the bible and there are numerous verses in God’s word making reference to these themes so Lamplight seemed an apt title!
