Hailing from Surrey, UK, Kat Mills delivers a powerful reminder that our lives are safe in the hands of Almighty God through her debut release with Homegrown Worship. God My Refuge is an uplifting folk-pop song, full of tenderness and beautifully expressed by Kat's floaty, airy and strong voice.
'I was writing about being caught in a storm and I put myself in the position of how it feels when you are caught in a storm and how you need to find shelter and a safe place to see the storm out.' says Kat.
'I love the idea of clinging to this tower whilst battling against the elements. The tower represents the hope of refuge and escaping the dark clouds - the hope of being rescued.'
This is a song for all of those needing a 'port in the storms of this life' and an encouragement to all who are feeling battered 'when the ruthless wind is howling'.
