Tawana Lael's Journey To Love is not a religious album. After all, most of the songs deal with how she moves from a bad relationship to a good relationship. Lael takes the listener from a home where a woman is showing her no account man the door, to a club where the singer revels in her new found freedom and then to rarified and exhilarating air of new love.

Tawana Lael's Journey To Love is not a religious album. After all, most of the songs deal with how she moves from a bad relationship to a good relationship. Lael takes the listener from a home where a woman is showing her no account man the door, to a club where the singer revels in her new found freedom and then to rarified and exhilarating air of new love.

Of course, embarking on a journey into the unknown is an act of faith. It takes fortitude to overcome betrayal, heartbreak, and uncertainty and ultimately make the decision to trust and love again. Most people who do so are able to call on faith in a higher power and themselves to pick up the pieces and get on with their lives. That is a spiritual journey, and Lael tells the story of that journey in song. She comes with the real and shows anyone going on that journey that it has equal parts of hope and despair, rage and love, sassiness and fear. Those emotions come through in an album that features radio friendly dance tracks, spoken word pieces, walk down the aisle ballads and bedroom anthems. Lael delivers each song with the kind of mature vocals that adult fans expect from their singers. The result is an album that is serious and fun, confident and vulnerable, angry and idealistic. In short Lael gives listeners a record that addresses the most human of all human conditions.
