Alys Keretses is a singer, pianist, and songwriter from Columbia, South Carolina. Upon completing studies in classical piano performance, Alys moved to Baltimore, Maryland in 2013. The first year there was one of deep anxiety, isolation, and rich healing. Holding on to the words of favorite hymns in frequent moments of need provided gratitude for their beauty and power, a desire to give them new melodies, and the inspiration to create new hymns and spiritual songs. This first collection of Alys's songs and hymn arrangements represents a season of choosing joy through sorrow, and finding restoration in worship.
