ANDREW GREER ASSEMBLES ACCLAIMED LINE-UP FOR ANGEL BAND: THE HYMN SESSIONS

Written by SGN Scoops on January 10, 2012 – 4:08 am -

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Singer/songwriter Andrew Greer brings together some of the top names in bluegrass, Gospel and Christian music for his January 31 sophomore release, Angel Band: The Hymn Sessions.  Produced by Greer and Chris Kimmerer, the project features arrangements of 11 beloved hymns, as well as one original selection, and will be available on both CD and vinyl.  
 
Highlights of Angel Band: The Hymn Sessions include the title track and “Softly and Tenderly,” featuring renowned bluegrass singer/songwriter Sonya Isaacs; “Jesus Paid It All” and Greer’s original “I’ve Been Searching,” with Gospel music icons The McCrary Sisters; “The Lord’s Prayer” with Ron Block (Alison Krauss & Union Station); “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus,” a duet with Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter Cindy Morgan; and “I Am Thine O Lord/Near The Cross,” with Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter Ginny Owens, among other selections.
 
“I can’t recall many of the sermons my pastor preached, or the lessons my Sunday School teachers taught, but I do remember hymns,” Greer says of his inspiration for the project.  “In fact, if it hadn’t been for the impact of those indelible tunes, I may have never fallen in love with music, or been introduced to God.”  
 
“Artistically, this record is most indicative of the sounds I love,” he continues.  “The musicians involved are a comprehensive list of personal influences. But the songs—they are what count. These hymns opened my heart to God. Their verses and melodies continue to cultivate a conversation between my best Friend and me.”
 
Andrew Greer is an accomplished singer/songwriter and respected music journalist.  His 2009 critically-acclaimed debut, Open Book, is a collection of introspective original selections he penned following a season of spiritual reawakening.  As a writer, Greer’s stories have appeared in Christianity Today, CCM, and ParentLife, among other notable publications.
 
Angel Band: The Hymn Sessions is a MA’M Recordings release.  For further information, visit www.andrew-greer.com  or www.turningpointpr.com .
