Produced by Jeremy Redmon (Big Daddy Weave), the 11-track album showcases a powerful theme of releasing shame and trusting God’s love, amidst our flaws and insecurities. Among the songs is the album’s title track and first single, “Beautifully Broken,” currently No. 23 at radio and making a strong impact on listeners.
Describing the album’s message, Plumb says “Brokenness is a theme for humanity; I’ve experienced a lot of it in my own life. We get so scarred up, and all we see is our brokenness. It’s important to accept that yes, we are broken and flawed, but at the end of day our identify is not found in our mistakes- those aren’t who we are. Who we are is God’s children; that alone makes us beautiful. We need to hear human stories and songs about people going through these battles with brokenness so we can say ‘I’ve been through the same,’ and feel the hope of not being alone.”
The label collaboration builds on the success of the artist’s own label Plumb Music’s release of the God Help Me EP and its Top 10 title-track single in late 2017, also included on the Beautifully Broken album. This new album is the first component of multiple creative projects currently ongoing for Plumb. Her “Beautifully Broken” single is being used as the promotional track for the upcoming film of the same name, and her sophomore book, Fight For Her, comes out in August.
“As a woman in the music business, it has been freeing to step out and form my own label, as well as write and record a project that feels the most “me” of any I’ve done,” PLUMB states. “This new album, book and movie all have such a focus on hope and empowerment for women. I’m honored to be aligning with a wonderful and respected partner like Centricity in telling the stories of Beautifully Broken.”
Chris Bradstreet, Plumb Music CEO and Owner of Street Talk Media, continues: “Whether major or indie, every artist benefits from a great team. With all the success of Plumb Music’s first single in 2017 – and now looking to the new album as well as the Beautifully Broken movie and new book Fight for Her – a strategic partnership with the folks at Centricity and the Capitol CMG distribution team felt like a great way to augment the team around his new album.”
Throughout her decade-plus career as a songwriter, recording artist, and author, PLUMB has found success in a myriad of genres, selling over half a million albums and millions of singles sold and streamed worldwide. Her music has been a favorite with music supervisors, having her songs included in dozens of ad campaigns, movies, and TV placements. Her career achieved an incredible milestone with her prophetic, bestselling 2012 album NEED YOU NOW and corresponding Need You Now: A Story of Hope memoir that chronicled the miraculous restoration of her marriage. These projects were followed by the 2015 breakout album Exhale and her 2017 God Help Me EP.
