Life throws a lot of challenges in our direction from one year to the next, but with the right support it’s proven that just about anything is possible; this is the theme of Terri Bannister’s “Little is Much.” Whether you’re a lifelong gospel fan or simply into some potent melodicism with a positive message, “Little is Much” is both aesthetically and compositionally everything its title suggests it would be, making it easily one of the more accessible and simple listens that audiences can expect to get into this winter, no matter the source or the style of music.
While the vocal has plenty of competition for the lion’s share of the spotlight in this mix, it nonetheless manages to find a way to center stage and influence the way in which we interpret every word it conveys.
Bannister has so much confidence for a rookie, and had I not been informed otherwise prior to sitting down with “Little is Much” for the first time this weekend, I could have easily been convinced that she was in fact a veteran player with a lot of miles under her belt. Her self-awareness and ease with the lyrics is already pure fire, but factoring in her swagger makes her one of the hottest young gospel players to watch at the moment.
“Little is Much” is short and sweet, with the music video barely breaking three and a half minutes total, but it isn’t missing any crucial elements that define the biggest singles from one season to the next. Terri Bannister’s melodic talents are something that could take some time to completely develop, but one has to wonder just how incredible she’s going to be down the line when she’s already this skillful at the onset of her career. “Little is Much” is a brooding introduction to her sound and, for critics like myself, a perfect way to close what was otherwise a dud of a year in 2020.
