On her debut album Streams of Mercy, singer-songwriter Kimberly Maycock uses a palette inspired by the sounds of Middle America – guitar, piano, mandolin, and the occasional string section – to tell stories of heartache and hope. “Beyond Goodbye,” a stirring, personal story of loss, begins as a sparse and introspective tune with just guitar and voice, and builds to a hopeful, full ending. This pattern of nuanced folk arrangements with layers that build and fade can be found throughout the album, giving each song a surprising emotional range. In “Reaching,” a mid-tempo number about the Savior’s ability to give us strength beyond our own, a cinematic string arrangement lends warmth as well as color to a compelling message of boundless hope. With its moving words, textured arrangements, and heartfelt songwriting, Streams of Mercy is a new LDS classic.
