Acclaimed Bethel Music worship collective singer/songwriter Kalley is set to step into the solo spotlight with a two-EP debut October 25. Birthed in the aftermath of last year’s California wildfires, the alt-pop/electronic Faultlines Vol. 1 and Faultlines Vol. 2 overarchingly reaffirm Kalley’s trust in the God who doesn’t run from disaster.
Produced by LaeL (Anberlin, Number One Gun), Faultlines Vol. 1 is hallmarked by six songs of breakthrough and unbridled expectation. Highlights include the upbeat opener and lead single, “Oasis," and the joyful “In The Middle,” both proclaiming God’s sovereignty in every situation; as well as "Alabaster Heart," an offering of surrender originally inspired during a time of worship. A live version of the latter song debuted this week, along with a music video.
The introspectively-focused Faultlines Vol. 2 was produced by Jason Ingram (Lauren Daigle, Cory Asbury) and also features six selections. The EP is epitomized by the deeply vulnerable track “Sanctuary.” Written after the wildfires as Kalley struggled with fear and survivor’s guilt, the song gives way to ultimate hope, praising the One who will “be my fence, my safety net, my reinforcing.”
