Dreaming of becoming the next pop star and about to release her debut EP in 2020, up and coming artist Estella Kirk drops her first single Shelter in the Storm, written in collaboration with Kira Fontana of Kingdom Sound and produced by Josh “Igloo” Monroy.
Extremely sensitive to the latest events caused by the spread of Coronavirus, Estella has been looking for security, truth and shelter in a world of chaos where she’s found her safe spot in God. In this regard, the storm she sings about is the panic and fear that the virus has spread, but someone is always here to give us peace, to help us find shelter in the storm: the Lord Himself.
Evocative and hopeful lyrics are introduced into a mellow pop dimension with wider harmonies in the choruses as to give us the feel of a divine presence that acts in intervention.
You can listen to Shelter in the Storm for yourself on Youtube.
