"Use someone like me"
Celebrate the gospel with us
At the start of 2021, producer and songwriter Feranmi Ogunseyinde (Fez) andsinger-songwriter Jemimah Paine collaborated to write ‘Friend’, a song about Jemimah’s journey that speaks to her musical past and how she has seen God’s faithfulness throughthe highs and lows.
The whispered, layered vocals create the feeling that the listener iseavesdropping in on a conversation that Jemimah is having with God. The chorus describes how even when we make mistakes and hit ‘ground zero’, God is always there, not only to fall with us but also to lift us up and out of any difficult place we find ourselves in.
‘It took us two hours to write this song from start to finish and I love the honesty that this
song begins with. I love the simple electric guitar melody that is played in the pre-chorus
which flows beautifully into the chorus. Fez is such an incredible songwriter and producer
and it is always a huge honour to be able to work with him!’
Stay in tune with Jemimah Paine
