Rising Christian Pop artist Hannah Schaefer released her first EP, All The Way, on October 31, 2015. Godly Girls for God recently interviewed Hannah, so it is a pleasure to be able to review her album. All The Way, with its powerful sounds and lyrics, undeniably brings a new depth to the Christian Pop genre, one that I welcome. Hannah has a passion for inspiring people to trust God and follow His leading, one that is definitely evident in her music.

Hannah recently won the John Lennon Songwriting Contest Gospel Category with her song, “All The Way.” Needless to say, then, “All The Way” is a masterpiece of a song. The style of “All The Way” is a cross between pop and rock; it has a very pop drumbeat, but a rock guitar sound in the background. These components blend together perfectly to make very solid piece of music that backs up the potent lyrics. Written during a time of confusion in Hannah’s life, “All The Way” describes the feelings of many young Christians who wonder where God is leading them. The first verse so clearly expresses this confusion with the lyrics, “Where am I going? ... Wish You’d show me… A little clarity is all I’m needing.” However, Hannah expands the picture, telling us that God knows all that we are doing, and is guiding us every step of our lives. As Hannah sums it up, “You’re holding me together, every moment, every day. You’re with me all the way.”
“Eyes Open”, a featured song on the EP was previously released as a single. It is more reminiscent of the pop style than “All The Way,” in that it has more electronic effects and sounds. “Eyes Open” describes Hannah’s salvation experience. Through captivating lyrics, Hannah describes how she was transformed into a new person by God’s grace. She sings about how her eyes are open to God’s grace and glory, and how her life isn’t broken any longer. This great testimony speaks volumes about Hannah’s desire to share her salvation with the world. I think this song will reach a wide number of people, as many could probably relate their testimonies to Hannah’s.
I would really like to recommend “All The Way” to any pop or rock fans. If you like Britt Nicole or Mandisa, you should definitely check out Hannah Schaefer. “All The Way” is a great EP, and Hannah shows a lot of promise as a Christian music artist. She is bringing clarity and depth to the Christian Pop genre, something that is often overlooked or sacrificed for style. However, Hannah brings both style and meaning to the table, putting her way ahead of the crowd. I look forward to hearing more from this music artist, as she lets God take her all the way.
