This project is the materialization of a lifelong love for music, a cultivated love for worship, a dream of one day creating an album, and 3 years of writing, re-writing, organizing, re-organizing, adding, removing and re-adding the songs that would form the first full-length, cohesive album.
The ten songs that make up "awaken" are very raw - they came straight from my heart- sometimes birthed out of a place of desperation, and sometimes out of love and gratitude for what God had done in my life. Ultimately, I really feel like there's a huge need for God to be accurately represented by and to His people and to the world. This album not only gives a glimpse into my heart, but also into the heart of God - for the people He created, and for the relationship He longs for us to pursue with Him.
released September 29, 2014
All glory and honor goes to God, who put this dream in my heart and birthed these songs in me.
Huge thanks to those who have put so much into making this album a reality!
