Popular CCM artist Rachael Lampa returns with her much anticipated new song "Side of My Heart." Lampa will be releasing a new song every couple of months. The first one out of the batch is "Side of My Heart." The song was written by Brendan McCarthy & Rachael Lampa and will be from Lampa's forthcoming album, her first since 2011's All We Need.
"This song was a hard one to write, to record, to release. It wasn't the most "obvious" choice, but it was the most honest choice. It's a song about growing up. About a head full of dreams and a longing to take all that life has to offer. But it's also a song about the inner child, that piece of us that gets easily lost in the mix and that I've desperately been fighting for. It's about hearing that still, small voice in the midst all of the other voices and remembering who I am. I hope this makes sense in your own way, for your own life, wherever you're at."
Lampa launched into the music scene in 2000 as a mere teenager amassing four number one singles, five more top ten tunes, plus appearances on "The Tonight Show," "The View," "Entertainment Tonight," "E!," "Extra," and Teen People. Add in a soundtrack slot on A Walk To Remember, an acting role in Hidden Secrets, a duet with Aaron Neville, plus tour time with Destiny's Child, Boyz II Men, Nickel Creek, Amy Grant, Vince Gill, and Jordin Sparks, and the powerhouse vocalist/songwriter became an internationally recognized face in less than a half decade.
But after a greatest hits disc in 2006, Rachael practically disappeared from public eye at the peak of her career, leaving fans scratching their heads and searching feverishly for news of future projects. Aside from a holiday EP in 2009 and the self-released studio EP Human in 2010 (featuring guest guitar/vocals from Jonny Lang), they had to wait with baited breath. But as the personable artist so eloquently admits, the time away was just to recharge her understandably overworked batteries and plot her next creative step, which manifested itself in the 2011 album, All We Need.
