NASHVILLE, Tenn.—“Into The Sea (It’s Gonna Be Ok),” the vulnerable new single from acclaimed BEC Recordings' singer/songwriter Tasha Layton, is now available. An affirmation of God’s presence and providence in a chaotic world, the timely track was co-produced by GRAMMY® winner Bryan Fowler and Hawk Nelson’s Micah Kuiper, and was written by Layton, multi-GRAMMY® winner Keith Everette Smith, Fowler and Kuiper.

The poignant piano ballad’s verses confess Layton’s earthly insecurities, while the sweeping chorus—buoyed by her signature powerhouse vocals—offers the reassurance of hope: “Though the mountains may be moved into the sea/Though the ground beneath might crumble and give way/I can hear my Father singing over me/'It’s gonna be ok, it’s gonna be ok.'"

“I have a 2-year-old son and when he falls and scrapes his knee, or when he is scared, or when he is sad, I take his little face in my hands and I look at him and say, ‘You know what buddy, it’s gonna be ok,’” Layton says of the inspiration behind “Into The Sea (It’s Gonna Be Ok).” “I wrote this song during a time when I was facing a lot of heartache, worry and stress. I was crying out to God, just like my little son cries out to me.”

“When we question if God is still in control and still good, Psalm 46 says that even if the earth gives way and the mountains fall into the sea, that He is our refuge and our strength, a present help in trouble,” Layton adds. “When your world feels like it is completely upside down, remember, it is going to be ok.”

South Carolina-native Tasha Layton launched her music career in Los Angeles, quickly becoming an in-demand session singer. She appeared on Season 9 of American Idol and spent four years as a back-up vocalist for pop superstar Katy Perry. Layton’s voice has also been heard in productions for Disneyland and Cirque du Soleil, as well Nickelodeon television, and she has served as an instructor at the National Praise and Worship Institute at Nashville’s Trevecca Nazarene University.

Layton is married to GRAMMY® and GMA Dove Award-winning producer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and member of TobyMac’s Diverse City Band, Keith Everette Smith, and the couple reside in Nashville with their two children. Her critically acclaimed BEC Recordings debut EP, Love Running Wild , released last year.
