Adie, former frontwoman of The Benjamin Gate and also married to husband Jeremy Camp, is back to the music scene with her debut solo album Don't Wait.
Ultimately, its the couples personal and professional camaraderie, along with Adie's expressive voice that makes Don't Wait such a unique and compelling offering. Musically mirrors style of singer/songwriter Butterfly Boucher and the more electronic pop approach of Frou Frou, Don't Wait is a seasoned, more introspective departure from Adie's more aggressive rock roots in The Benjamin Gate.
Thematically speaking, Don't Wait is very multi-faceted as it tackles everything from maintaining an eternal perspective on life (Don't Wait), to relying on God even in our weakest moments (Sufficient), to a new understanding and appreciation of God's grace (What Have I Done?).
"'What Have I Done?' is one of my favorite songs on the record," Adie confides. "On several of the songs we collaborated with other songwriters, and this one was written by the wife of one of The Benjamin Gate guitarists as a congregational worship song years and years ago (Suzanna Pautz). I even sang it at their wedding, and I knew if I ever did a solo album, I had to do this song. It speaks about God's amazing grace, how He still loves and cares about us no matter what we've done."
In the process of making the album, Adie says she also felt a new resolve against spiritual complacency and a renewed desire to truly make every day count. "I've been a Christian for a long time, and its easy to get into a comfortable routine," Adie confesses. In Revelation, it speaks about not losing your first love. "And I think the Lord has really been challenging me not to just be faithful in taking time for devotions each day but to be a person who really desires to spend time with Jesus and not compromise."
In late 2009, Adie announced that she would have a new album, entitled Just You And Me, coming out in March of 2010 through BEC Recordings.
