Also from the Group One Crew, Manwell Reyes contributed as a writer and producer with the retro “All For You.” Surrendering to the process of being produced versus being the producer, the track excited Tye with its syncopated drum patterns, because it reaches beyond gospel.
Tye wrote and produced the first song that came during his lowest point in the wilderness, the aptly titled “Good.” The track echoes his youthful approach to praise and worship, with its drum pulses and guitar strums. Then the old soul with a bluesy swag, “Keep Me” which featured Isaac Caree. Inspired by his daughter catching two teenagers kissing on television, Tye provided gentle instruction on content for an age-appropriate audience.
Fresh featured also collaborative efforts from Israel Houghton, in the rendition of the praise tracks- the anthemic “Champion” and “Most High God".
Going consecration and giving room for sober reflections “Your Blood (The Communion Song)” and “Take Over”, Tye performs this big sounding choir song reflecting his surrender to God. In the quiet mood comes, “You Alone” which is like a prayer. Subsequently “Holding On” sounds like the letter to God after the prayer. Echoing a solution for when life gets hard when everybody needs something to hold on to.” Fresh explored other genres that catches Tye's fancy: even gritty rock!
Grateful for a second chance, and restored marriage, Tye Tribbett's Fresh attempts to lead show the world of the essence of full transparency acknowledgement that God can change someone. This sixteen tracks on the candid Fresh album are reflective of Tye's journey so far, and his continued desire to stay refreshed in the place in worship. I can duly say, "the outcome of his change was well worth it ."
