It can be an easy path to seek comfort in the familiar and stay in the world of possibilities instead of striving for actualization. For SHINEBRIGHT (formerly Shine Bright Baby), comprised of husband and wife Nathan and Emily Fertig, stopping at only imagining the possibilities is not enough. The launch of their sophomore album Only You is the evidence they are not settling.
“I want to spend my life dreaming big God-sized, God-given dreams, not my own,” says Emily. “And instead of holding onto those dreams so tightly like secrets, to start speaking life into them. It's easy to be scared of rejection and failure, but imagine what God may do in our committing to those dreams out loud, investing in them through prayer, and leaning on God and His promises.”
Never ones for empty words, Emily and Nathan have put their convictions into action. Since the release of their 2013 debut album Dreamers, they have gone from four band members to two and changed the band’s name from Shine Bright Baby to simply SHINEBRIGHT.
