House on a Hill -
House on a Hill marks Amanda Lindsey’s second album with Bethel music, a sequel to her debut album Brave New World in 2015. This studio album unfolds into a piano-driven ambiance paired with subtle electronic tonality. Amanda describes her project as a journey of coming “through the trees, into an open field, where I could lie down and catch my breath.” Echoing Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God,” the album was birthed through discovering the gentle voice of God, leading us into His peace and joy that stays constant and confident, giving all of our minutes and moments a purpose. Amanda’s lyrical brilliance is on full display in songs like “Awakening” and “House on a Hill”. Lyrics like, “This is my awakening—while my heart was fast asleep, You were resurrecting me,” and, “Some things you can’t know till you’re still, in the silence where your spinning thoughts slow down,” give listeners poetic, imaginative language as they begin their own dialogue with God. Known for her strong and pure sound, Amanda’s vocals ascend from quiet, gentle melodies to soaring declarations. House on a Hill will impart rest and healing listeners by providing a space to encounter God in stillness, and remind them of His transcendent goodness.
Brave New World -
Amanda Cook, of Bethel Music, says about this album: "The process of writing gave me permission to explore and to breathe in a way I didn't know I needed. I was given a gift: to find out what I actually believe about God, to ask big questions, wrestle with what I had been told are answers, and find peace within the mystery. For this album, there were stories before there were songs. These are my imaginations and confessions put to melodies and music. My prayer through this record is that you would experience the reality that you, in fact, house a Brave New World; you are a Brave New World. May you be filled with hope in the One whose mercy is timeless, and whose Love for mankind is as boundless as the sea."There is an endless possibility for God to create a world within us, a world transformed through the bravery of perfect Love. Amanda Cook has crafted a striking solo album, her debut solo project with the Bethel Music Collective. Brave New World presents 14 original songs. The album's combination of dynamic lyric, symphonic instrumentation, and crafted melody creates an ethereal atmosphere of worship. Each track is intentionally spacious and rich, inviting listeners into a time of encounter with God, free of distraction. Brave New World is a voyage of discovering that God has been on our side all along, that we can live a whole life, full of heart, with a capacity to process pain, wrestle with truth, and find ourselves steady at the end of our pilgrimage.
