Abigail Duhon’s More Than Gold EP Review
My rating: 3.5/5
15-year-old TV and film actress Abigail Duhon has released a new EP record, More Than Gold. The EP features three tracks from her upcoming full album, I’m Living Life, expected this coming January. Her EP album includes its eponymous single, “More Than Gold,” from the official soundtrack for the feature film, Caged No More. This new EP is one that will have you dancing and feeling encouraged. Abigail’s music is something different and something that needs to be heard by this younger generation.
“Give Me More” is more like a moving prayer than a song. Abigail is speaking through her lyrics, saying she wants the life that Jesus has for her more than anything else. Her lyrics are saying that everyone should give their life to Jesus and when you do, He’ll give you way more than you ever imagined possible. The upbeat sound to this song is something that will have you hooked and make you want to dance and rejoice.
My personal favorite track, “More Than Gold,” is one that is such a great reminder for both young women and men. We all go through seasons where we feel unwanted and unloved. If you’re going through a rough season, this song is for you. Abigail has such simple truth in her lyrics for this song. Something about adding keys to this song makes it so beautiful. The arrangement slows the song as a whole and and helps you really hear and connect with these powerful lyrics.
The last song on the More Than Gold EP, “Dance Up,” is another one that will leave you with high spirits and happy feet. Featuring our friend Spencer Kane, this song is a reminder of what it feels like when you first invite Jesus into your heart. It’s a feeling that you can not explain adequately with words. It’s like when you hear your favorite song on the radio or see your favorite band live, it’s a feeling that you can only capture with your senses. The joy in your heart is contagious and it’s the best feeling.
To sum up, More Than Gold EP is something for all ages. It’s an EP that will leave you feeling refreshed, encouraged and fired up about God. Abigail is sure to make it far in the music industry. Reminding me of TobyMac’s music, these tracks leave you wanting more.
