Soulful Pop Artist Kerrie Roberts Readies 5 Track EP My Heart's Lifted

Soulful Pop vocalist, songwriter and pianist Kerrie Roberts independently releases amidst acclaim her highly-anticipated, five-song EP, ‘My Heart’s Lifted,’ on 16th Dec 2014 through The Fuel Music. The recording features Robert’s high-energy Pop styling and emotive, powerful voice carrying themes that take the listener on an emotional rollercoaster ride that mirrors real life and are meant to lift hearts toward what is most important, eternal and unchangeable.

Executive produced by Roberts, she also co-produced two songs on ‘My Heart’s Lifted’ with Jeff Savage (tobyMac, Rachael Lampa). Three additional tracks on the album were produced by Joshua Silverberg (Newsboys, Group 1 Crew, Edison Glass) and Kipp Williams, while mixing on the album was handled by Jared Fox (Michael W. Smith, Crowder), Silverberg and Savage. With mastering by Dan Shike (Jonny Lang, Francesca Battistelli, Newsboys), the new album also features Roberts co-writing with longtime collaborators Stephanie Lewis and GRAMMY-nominated Rusty Varenkamp, as well as such acclaimed songwriters as Silverberg, Williams and Josh Bronleewe.

The title track ‘My Heart Is Lifted’ was released this week, which is meant to be an encouragement to all who hear it. “This EP starts with joy, praise and freedom,” shares Roberts. “Then you’re moved into more reflective and serious moments, while ending on a very thankful and happy note. I hope that listeners are challenged by the truths in the songs, and that they’re also affected emotionally.”

That healing of the broken-hearted is something Kerrie takes seriously, especially in her song, ‘Come Back To Life,’ which tackles the subject of suicide. “Friends I loved were losing loved ones to suicide, and their worlds were being rocked. I feel like suicide is something that we don’t talk about very much, and I wanted to start speaking truth into that situation. ‘Come Back to Life’ is very much based on the verse in Romans 8, where it says the same power that raised Jesus from the dead is available to us now. I want to tell people that are in that dark place, that ‘you’re not alone,’ and that there is a power that can bring them back to life.”

“While some subjects might be difficult, I don’t find singing or talking about them difficult,” shares Roberts. “I find that a privilege. I want to speak into different situations, and I’m very hopeful that these songs will help people.”

In addition to the release of the title track, ‘My Heart’s Lifted,’ Roberts will begin posting lyric on her website followed by posting live, acoustic performance videos of all the songs on the album.
