    Jaylene Johnson's fourth studio release, recorded at Signpost Music and produced by Murray Pulver. Warm, acoustic, authentic, soul-nourishing folk/pop music. Digipak with gorgeous artwork by award-winning graphic artist, Roberta Renee Hansen. 12 original tracks.

    By the time the first chorus of the opening song played I said to myself ‘Oh my - this is seriously good!’...The album has just the right amount of push and pull with tempo shifts, mood changes, with solid musicianship warming the centre and serving these 12 stellar songs. ‘Let The Silence Speak’ moved me to tears... Brian Doerksen


    ...there's a lovely settledness about this project that you recognize in an artist who has come into her own. The songs are beautifully crafted and performed— the sort that draw you into that liminal space where newness and insight are sometimes found. Steve Bell

    What happens when a pro songwriter converges at the point of faith, suffering and truth-telling? Potter & Clay is what happens. Jaylene has heartbreakingly and beautifully outdone herself at the meeting place of craftsmanship and the human journey. Alana Levandoski

How Long
©2015 Jaylene Johnson


Who led me to this desert?
Was it me or was it You?
Am I being punished
For what I did or didn't do
Been walking round in circles
Consumed by every mile
The landscape of a broken heart
Too hurt to reconcile


How long, how long
Will I stay here in the shadows
When will the pain be gone
How long, how long
When can I fin'lly say I'm moving on


I believe that You are faithful
All-knowing and all-wise
I've seen Your mercy moving

Through the corners of my life
So I'm asking you to rescue me
Or am I just a page in history
Cause I've been here much longer
Than I ever thought You'd let me be


How long, how long
Will I stay here in the shadows
When will the pain be gone
How long, how long
When can I fin'lly say I'm moving on

Help me find a way out
I wanna know what freedom's all about
What freedom’s all about

How long, how long
Will I stay here in the shadows
When will the pain be gone
How long, how long
When can I fin'lly say I'm moving on
When can I fin’lly say I’m movin’ on



How long, How long
How long, How long
How long, How long
How long, How long
How long, How long
How long, How long
How long, How long
How long, How long
