Style: Alternative pop/rock; compare to Kelly Clarkson, Michelle Branch, Pink

Top Tracks: "This Time Around," "Hallelujah," "Holes"

As Heather Williams expresses on "Always Been Faithful," "mine was not a story I would have chosen for myself." Coming from a background of significant struggle, she recognizes Christ's faithfulness with complete authenticity on her first full-length album. Themes of "praise through pain" come and go in the Christian music industry, but Williams' vocal personality makes this concept anything but trite. Her belted alto and alternative style resemble the power of artists like Kelly Clarkson, and the relatability of her lyrics make up for lack of poetic expression.
