Style: Easy listening acoustic folk; compare to Amy Grant, Sara Groves, Carolyn Arends

Top tracks: "A Little Faith," "Whole Again," "To Make You Feel My Love"

Winner of 10 Covenant Awards (Canada's version of the GMA awards), easy-on-the-ears Ali Matthews—very reminiscent of a young Amy Grant—has created another winner with her sixth studio album, rife with themes of discovering grace and beauty in brokenness and, as the title implies, finding one's way home, in this world and the one to come. Jazz-infused "A Little Faith," cleverly written "Whole Again," and a cover of Bob Dylan's "To Make You Feel My Love" are standouts, while the title track calls out, "I have a Love so much more than I am / And soon it will carry me home."
