Tiffany Coburn Declares a Message of Hope with You Are More

SPECIAL STOWTOWN RECORDS

Nashville, TN (April 30, 2021) – StowTown Records is thrilled to announce the release of Tiffany Coburn‘s sophomore solo project, You Are More. As an artist who is celebrated for her powerhouse vocals that soar high above the music and linger after the cutoff, it would be easy for Tiffany to record big numbers that merely serve to showcase her vocal prowess. Instead, she chose songs based on their timely message of unwavering hope; songs to which she can personally relate. With all-new songs written by some of gospel music’s top songwriters, You Are More is a poignant, relevant example of what it means to persevere.

Widely known as a member of the acclaimed acapella group, Voctave, and longtime performer with Disney’s Voices of Liberty, Tiffany is beyond excited to share her latest solo endeavor with the world. She explains, “I am so happy to be releasing these songs during spring. We’ve all walked through a global pandemic and for those of us who are here – it is for a purpose. We are awakening, stepping out into His grace, laughing, working, living, and connecting with others once again.” Themes of grace weave an exquisite tapestry throughout each song on the project, highlighting that we are all made in the likeness of God and are able to receive love and forgiveness no matter who we are, where we are, or what we have done.

The title track, written by Wayne Haun and Joel Lindsey, is a beautiful reminder to everyone that they matter. The lyrics relay the message that people of “every shape” and “every shade” are “wonderfully made.” “You Are More” could not have come at better time. This song is a heartfelt, soul-stirring anthem of encouragement.

“Roll Back River,” the first radio single from the project, has hit the airwaves on major radio stations across the country. “When I Let It Go,” written by Haun, Lindsey, Carolyn Cross and Val Dacus, is a hauntingly beautiful masterpiece that speaks of grace coming through total surrender. To close out this album of incredible new songs, Coburn sings a lovely rendition of the classic, “Seasons of the Soul.” It perfectly sums up the state of hopefulness and spring that Tiffany wishes to convey.

Tiffany’s breathtaking vocals blend beautifully with the featured guests on the project. Grammy® Award-nominated and GMA Dove Award-winning artists Point of Grace, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Joseph Habedank, and The Isaacs all make appearances on the album. “I am honored that they have all poured their unbelievable talents into this project. It is truly a blessing,” Tiffany says.

Embracing Tiffany’s vision for this album was easy for multi-award winning producer and arranger Wayne Haun. Wayne shares, “Tiffany is an artist’s artist. She is a teacher, a communicator and a performer. That is evident on this project due to the amount of major talent that wanted to collaborate with her.” In addition to extending the invitation to these guest vocalists, Haun invited Les Misérables Musical Director Brian Eads to orchestrate one of the tracks, “Then There’s Grace.” Haun continues, “She is one of the most seasoned singers I know. Time and again I’ve seen lines of young musicians just trying to get two minutes’ worth of her masterful advice. Her talent is seriously off the charts, and yet her humility is genuine. I think this album really reveals her heart, set to music.”

With versatile musical stylings, You Are More is both fresh and nostalgic and is sure to have broad appeal with multi-generational audiences. Distributed exclusively by Provident/Sony, You Are More is available at digital and retail outlets worldwide.

Something that leaves Hitchens’ Razor a little rusty

FLOYD ROGERS

Christopher Hitchens wrote, “What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence.” Hitchens was speaking of God. While I have never disagreed with the logic of his statement, I do disagree with his presupposition that millions of people having the same experience is not evidence worth exploring. I also disagree with the apparent presupposition that evidence and proof are the same thing. These presuppositions leave Hitchens’ Razor a bit rusty.

There is a very big difference between lack of evidence and rejection of evidence. A person who knows something because of his or her experience may not be able to prove it to me. Their experience is no less evidence than testimony in a courtroom. One person’s experience is very weak evidence.  But if millions of others report the same experience, it shouldn’t be dismissed so easily. A good example would be that I can never know what it’s like to be an African American woman.  She may describe to me what it feels like to be the target of discrimination, she may show me data that indicates she has been discriminated against, but I will never KNOW what it’s like to have that experience. All I can know is her (and other’s) testimony.  And it would be wrong for me to presuppose that her experience must be a delusion; and therefore, something to be dismissed without investigation. Millions of people having the same experience is evidence worth exploring, but not proof. Proof is something totally different.

There is a big difference between proof and evidence. We certainly wouldn’t spend billions of dollars on the search for extraterrestrial life if evidence and proof were the same thing. Conditions are what we would expect them to be if there is life on other planets; Therefore, we search for life based on this evidence. Oxford says evidence is, “The AVAILABLE body of facts or information indicating whether a belief or proposition is true or valid.”  Evidence remains evidence unless it is proven or demonstrated to be the result of a rival causal factor. 

I have no way to prove God’s presence or absence if the only way to know Him is through a faith given as a gift to those who will accept it. It would not be rational to claim that those who say they have this experience are mistaken unless I can demonstrate a rival cause for their experience.  Oddly enough, if one “believes” that other people’s faith is just wishful thinking then they too have a faith unless they can prove the other’s are in error. Let me be very clear here: I did not say the other people’s faith is true because I cannot claim it to be false.  I said the proposition that their faith must be false because they cannot prove it is not rational.  The only rational claim in that situation would be, “I don’t know.”

Armed robber enters Nelon-Kistler’s condo

SPECIAL: DAYWIND RECORDS

What was to be a quick two-night anniversary celebration in Panama City Beach, Florida, turned into a very frightening situation for Amber Nelon Kistler and husband, Nathan. An 18 year old man who is reported to be on drugs entered the couple’s 14th floor condo.

“He was staying with a family next door. He stole the brother’s gun. Jumped over, yes, jumped over to this balcony, ” Kistler said as she described the crime.

“We’re one of four victims. We are one of four rooms that he robbed. We are thankful that the Lord protected us, because he was in here. “

The armed robber was kept out of the couple’s bedroom only because they lock the door as a precaution. 

We are glad no one was injured.
