Lauren Talley, Amber Eppinette Saunders and Kenna Turner West Collaborate As a New Trio
The Talley's Lauren Talley, 11th Hour's Amber Eppinette Saunders, and Kenna Turner West are collaborating as a trio simply known as Lauren, Amber & Kenna. Already, the three have begun recording new music with Roger Talley producing, and their first single, "Ever-Present, Almighty God," (written by Amber, Kenna & Jason Cox) will be released in early 2023.
"It's a joy to work with these three talented ladies," says Roger. "They have an incredible energy and passion in their singing and writing that makes their songs truly come alive. I'm so excited about the music that's coming soon!"
"Who would have thought a Facebook video of three friends singing together in a car would have ended up here?!" says Lauren. "We've all been friends for a long time, we sing, we write, and now we're putting it all together in a powerful way."
"I am overjoyed to be working with two of my dearest friends,", says Amber. "We all have lived life full of testings, tragedies, and trials but we now have a testimony of how God has and is bringing us through. That is what this music will showcase, and I can't wait for you all to hear our hearts through it."
Kenna adds, "I am so grateful to Crossroads for this opportunity. The three of us have been like family for years, and now to be able to sing together - it' an absolute joy! We each come at this with unique gifts and unique platforms of ministry, and when it all comes together, what we have collectively is something very special."
With a vocal blend comparable to great collaborations both within and beyond the world of Gospel music - from the legendary Trio of Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt to Sisters and Point of Grace - Lauren, Amber & Kenna have taken an expansive approach to their work, combining their individual and joint influences and interests to create music that ranges from Gospel to Worship, and CCM to Southern Gospel, yet always retaining both their distinctive individual voices and the common roots they share.
