Rarely has an album been so well named as This Is For You, Lauren Talley’s first collection in three years, and the first since The Talleys, the family trio in which she’d sung for more than 20 years, elected to retire from touring in 2020. From the opening line of the title track (and next radio single) to the last notes of the restrained, yet deeply emotional “Lord’s Prayer,” This Is For You is a finely crafted yet revelatory exploration of the wellsprings of faith through music.

“I’ve been making records for a long, long time,” says the artist. “But I think This Is For You may be the pinnacle of my recording career thus far. It’s the first album I have recorded as a full-time solo artist since the retirement of The Talleys, and working alongside producer Gordon Mote injected the whole process with fresh creativity. I love the songs, I love the sounds, and well, I’ve lived the lyrics.”

“Several of the songs are from my pen and my life,” Talley continues. “‘This Is For You,’ ‘Say Yes I Am,’ ‘In The Room,’ and ‘That’s What I Love About Him’ contain bits and pieces of my story, and I sing them because I want you to know it, to know me, but most importantly, to know Him.”

That intent animates each of the Gordon Mote and Lauren Talley-produced collection’s 10 songs, which reach beyond Talley’s heartfelt originals to include a carefully chosen set that includes nods to African-American Gospel in a joyous, spirited reading of How I Got Over” and to worship music in a ringing take of Charity Gayle’s “Thank You Jesus For The Blood.” With every song, Talley and her gifted team have created fresh, contemporary, yet varied arrangements that center her compelling voice, delivering a message of redemption that shines through each moment, whether in hushed or powerful passages.
