ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The latest project: Inside Things

Frances Drost's new CD "Inside Things" delves deeply into the life of this startlingly effective and accomplished songwriter. With songs that come from extremely personal places, she really lets the world take a look "inside" her personal life and stories. From the update of an old hymn and added original chorus "Enough", to the emotional, orchestrated passion of "Shatter the Glass", to the classic contemporary title track, through the whole CD, you get a sense of a writer with broad experience and skill.

Deftly weaving folk melodies and production with contemporary instrumentation and production, Frances shows power and grace with songs like "In the Hand of the Lord", "Missin' You" and "I Know God". These show her deep Pennsylvania and tradtional value roots, bring a deep level of musicality, but also show authenticity in her character.

Then come the emotional stories of "Beside the Barn", a moving story in memory of a lost loved one. "I Can Pray" is a standout as a song as moving as it is true. We may feel helpless in alot of situations, but we can always pray for the person we feel for.

Other times as on "Wonderfully Created" and "What You Delight In", we just revel in Frances' writing and easy on the ears vocal style.

We all have "Inside Things" that we protect and that affect us deeply. On this album, Frances Drost bravely shares her life, her pain, and her faith with the world.

the artist . . .

Frances Drost is a singer, songwriter, pianist and recording artist from Pa.
Frances Drost's new CD "Inside Things" delves deeply into the life of this startlingly effective and accomplished songwriter. With songs that come from extremely personal places, she really lets the world take a look "inside" her personal life and stories. From the update of an old hymn and added original chorus "Enough", to the emotional, orchestrated passion of "Shatter the Glass", to the classic contemporary title track, through the whole CD, you get a sense of a writer with broad experience and skill.

Involved in music all the way through high school at Shalom Christian Academy of Chambersburg, Pa., where her classmates voted her 'most musical', Frances had her first opportunity for songwriting when asked to write the music behind the lyric and melody of a tune written by her fellow classmates for their graduation ceremony. The piece was titled 'If You Have A Dream". The song goes on to say, "...don't let anything dim it. Have faith, keep praying, the sky is the limit". Little did she know how true that song would become of her own life.

Frances is also known as a contemporary worship leader and finds great fulfillment in that aspect of music. She has served in that capacity for years with P1M (Priority One Ministries): a cross-cultural short-term missions program for youth, along with travelling all around the world sharing music at conferences and various events.

her purpose . . .

Psalms 9:9 says "The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed...a tower of strength in time of need". This is a good summation of the music Frances writes. She sees each song as a potential tower of strength for those who are hurting: a place of refuge and safety from the 'storms of life'. Having been ministered to many times by music, she understands that it is a powerful, God-given tool, with which to touch people, and she greatly enjoys using her gifts for just that.

her music . . .

The writer of her own music, Frances is known as transparent, natural and sincere in her writing. She usually begins writing a song based on an experience she has had or an inspirational phrase that forms in her heart. It has been said, "be careful about inviting Frances to your home; she may write a song about you". Although that is certainly true, if she writes about you, it will only be to inspire others and your name won't be mentioned! However, one thing is for sure, if something really moves her, you will usually find her singing about it.

her concerts . . .

Not only is Frances transparent in her songwriting, but in concert as well. Integrating stories with songs, you will usually find a theme to all of her concerts. From intimate, heartwarming lyric, to fun, upbeat music, she enjoys tailoring each concert to the group she is ministering to.

Words from her Producer about her upcoming release . . .

"Not often does a songwriter come to me with the depth of lyric, stark emotion, and just plain strong melodic sense that Frances Drost brings with her songs. I'm so excited to release her new CD "Inside Things" under the Creative Soul Records banner I can hardly stand it. This fits exactly the kind of "next step" artist we are looking for. Someone who was become a "student of the game", done her homework, and in the process has transformed herself into an artist and songwriter at the top of her game. I expect great things from Frances' music and ministry" -

Eric Copeland, President, Creative Soul Records www.creativesoulrecords.com
