Singer/songwriter Tanya Godsey has just released her third full-length album, Love Lines The Last Horizon. We caught up with this worship leader and speaker to find out more about the album, and where her personal music tastes lie.

Tell us a little bit about this new album of yours?

My new album “Love Lines The Last Horizon” is a collection of songs about both the light and the dark places we encounter as we move through the world. I really hope these 11 songs serve as pieces of grace for people as they process both the joy and the sorrow of an...

How would you describe your style of music and what are your influences?

This is a very diverse record. The production of this album ranges from cinematic to indie pop but the heart of my artistry is very worshipful and passionate. I grew up memorizing the lyrics of Rich Mullins from a super young age and I love artists who are serious song crafters - so lyrics are probably my first and last priority. As far as influences go, I love everything from Peter Gabriel to The Brilliance to Coldplay and Bethel Music. The list goes on and on. I have a pretty broad spectrum of musical influences.

How would you define success in your career?

This is my third full length record and I’ve learned so much along the way about how to measure a life well lived and a calling well executed. I recently heard someone say the goal of an artist is to do work that is “unignorable,” not necessarily successful. This definitely rings true for me. I’ve always sought to do work that is a sincere representation of my heart, my passion and the work God is calling me to. I’ve never worked harder in my life to steward my gifts and to be faithful in the process, but I feel such peace in leaving the results to God.

What is your favorite album of all time?

I would have to say my favourite album of all time is a three-way tie between A Liturgy A Legacy & A Ragamuffin Band (Rich Mullins), So (Peter Gabriel), Lead Me On (Amy Grant).

You're stuck on an island, it's hot, you only have enough battery life left to listen to one song on your mp3 player. What track is it?

Creed (Rich Mullins) is such a special song both lyrically and musically. Its full of scripture and always reminds me of the power of the Gospel. It’s timeless and would easily be my choice.


What does the next year hold for Tanya Godsey?

I’ll be touring this Fall performing concerts, leading worship and speaking in various places around the U.S. I plan to do more of the same next year and hope to add some international dates as well. I’ll be releasing video content related to the record and the messages God has put on my heart via tanyagodsey.com and my social media sites. I’m also working on launching a brand new podcast and writing for the next record. I’m buckling my seatbelt for a busy year!
