    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

This Little Light
©2015 Jaylene Johnson

I got scared of taking chances
So I stayed in bed
Tangled up, my inhibitions
Messin’ with my head
I was tired and feeling foolish
‘Bout some things I’d done
So I stayed away far out of sight of everyone
And this little light of mine
I wouldn’t let it shine

Burning flame that used to fuel me
Faded to a spark
Now I sit in contemplation
Lonely in the dark
I remember times I was convinced
That You were there
So I’m cryin’ out, Lord Jesus
Please receive this prayer
‘Cause this little light of mine
I still wanna let it shine
Wanna let it shine, shine, shine
I wanna let it shine
Oh Oh Oh

So please forgive me for the things
I should have said and done
All the time I’ve wasted
Out of sight of everyone
Fan the spark into a fire
Never let it die
And I will tell the story of Your mercy
Far and wide
This little light of mine
I am gonna let it shine
