Nashville, TN - How Far, the long-awaited full-length debut from one of Christian music’s leading female artists, Tasha Layton, is set for release May 13. The 10-song set puts Layton’s signature vocals front and center to extol themes of hope and encouragement.
"The whole album is summed up in the message of the title track, 'How Far,'" Layton shares. "It's about how God continues to reach out and pursue us even when we run from Him. It was God's love for us that propelled Him to give His life on the cross. Arms stretched open wide—that's how far He will go.”
Coming out on BEC Records, Layton co-wrote nine of the project’s 10 tracks. Produced by GRAMMY Award and Dove Award winner Keith Everette Smith, How Far also features songwriting contributions from such names as Matthew West, We Are Messengers’ Darren Mulligan, Matt Hammitt, Aaron Shust, Ethan Hulse and Andrew Bergthold (We The Kingdom), among others.
“I didn't shy away from any hard emotions with these songs, and I really tried to lean in and hear what God had to say about each of them," Layton says of How Far. "My hope is that listeners feel a sense of freedom in this album, understanding that God meets us even in the darkest of hours. The album speaks to God's intimate involvement in our lives, from the mundane to the biggest moments, throughout each and every season. God is in all of those things with us. He cares; He's kind; and He's working all things out for our good."
Layton’s 2021 smash hit “Look What You’ve Done” reached the pinnacle of the Billboard Christian Airplay Chart and earned her recognition as one of the publication’s Top 5 female Christian artists of the year. She has been featured on ABC’s GMA3: What You Need To Know, discussing how past struggles have shaped her life and inspired her music. Also noteworthy was her six-song holiday EP This Is Christmas, which rocked the 2021 Christmas season.
