Arden, NC. (July 30, 2018) – With their upcoming release, Silhouette, The Wisecarvers are stating who they are and how they want to be seen â€” as the likeness of Jesus. When someone sees silhouettes, they can see thereâ€™s a person, but not who it is. This talented family wants you to shift your focus from them to see Jesus through their ministry. Find them on the web here.
From the first note of â€œBegin With You,â€ listeners will know Chase, Dustin, Kaila, Tammy and Vince Wisecarver poured their souls into the new album. The songs, all penned by family members except for one, range from the driving sounds of â€œLove You Stillâ€ to the quiet inner perspective of â€œPotterâ€™s Wheel.â€ The album closes with the classic â€œAmazing Graceâ€ featuring authentic vocals and Dustin on harmonica.
The albumâ€™s title track and first single, to be released August 3, is an upbeat tune written by Kaila and features Chase with a strong lyric. It reminds us that each day we have the opportunity to be the light in a dark world.
I want You to shine, Like the brightest daylight
Til the world canâ€™t get a glimpse of who I am
I want them to see, You and not me
So the only thing thatâ€™s left is just a silhouette
â€œWhen You Look At Meâ€ features Kaila with a thought-provoking lyric that carries on the theme of how we are perceived, but this time from Godâ€™s point of view. â€œWhen You look at me do You see anything that makes You smile?â€ asking God if we are living a pleasing life in His sight.
Tammy Wisecarver shares, â€œFor months now since weâ€™ve been working on Silhouette, weâ€™ve known that it was something special, something different. As each aspect of the album started coming together, we could feel that God was using these songs in a powerful way in our own lives, and we pray that from the moment folks hear the first note, they feel not only encouraged and uplifted, but challenged to be all that God has planned for them to be and nothing less. All of the Crossroads team worked diligently to make each part of this recording the best it could be and their hard work is evident in the final product! We canâ€™t wait to share it with everyone!â€
