Christa Wells / Press

"This album is soulful to the core. Every single song is a story; this is one of the most artistic albums I have heard this year."

"[Feed Your Soul is] one of the most compelling albums of the year."

“Rarely has an album affected me this deeply, as many of the songs cause me to physically feel the depth and sincerity of Christa’s goose bump-inducing, emotional vocals.”

“Wells’ Feed Your Soul is a beautiful, soul-baring record that works with seemingly little effort… Wells knows how to write a compelling song, and she knows that the way to turn it from “good” to “great” isn’t always to add more arrangement.”

"Feed Your Soul" is a delightful sonic buffet of sounds that will get us dancing, crying, rejoicing and praising. But lyrically, no one writes like Wells. Wells goes right into the heart. And she does give voice to emotions so raw, so tender and yet so real. The heart speaks through this record and it has never been more powerfully eloquent.

“How Emptiness Sings is nothing short of phenomenal...The title track narrates the stories of people who have sacrificially given of themselves to give glory to God. There is an ethereal quality to its whole composition. This is not the first song of encouragement ever written, but it among the most astute, the most poignant... ...Shrewd, discerning, compelling – her unique way with words puts her in that league of writers at the top of the game...If it were merely beautiful, How Emptiness Sings would still be great, but Christa Wells easily transcends mere greatness with her insightful lyricism.”

“Let me just say this is one of the most captivating albums I’ve ever heard. Christa has a vocal sincerity and creativity that rivals Brooke Fraser, Audrey Assad, JJ Heller and Sara Groves... For me, the standout experience of this stellar album is hanging on every note of the gorgeous title track, “How Emptiness Sings."...my choice for song of the year. I am so captivated by this album, I have to give it 5 stars and every song is incredible. I only wish there were a few more songs, it’s that good. For sure, this is the ultimate “gourmet” release of 2011.”

“If you are not familiar with Christa Wells, now is the time to get aquainted...Her latest work, How Emptiness Sings, is a poetic masterpiece. Clocking in at just under 26 minutes, this release is comprised of seven well written songs, no filler. ”

"This album...is full of compelling, memorable lyrics, wistfully poignant lead vocals and well-blended harmonies. Christa's vocal style has been likened to that of Sarah McLachlan and Sara Groves and she is the equal to both these huge talents...Thoroughly recommended."
