Paducah natives Craig Felker and Jesse Grisham and their critically acclaimed band Hearts of Saints recently released their sophomore CD, For All of Us. Featuring executive producer Ainslie Grosser (Jesus Culture, Matt Redman); producer Michael Farren, known for writing modern worship staples “Let it Rain” and “Let the Worshippers Arise"; and Grammy Award-winning producer Andy Hunt (Buddy Guy, Matthew West), the album contains not only Hearts of Saints’ signature catchy rock anthems, but also Scripture-heavy songs for the church to sing.
“We’ve always been comfortable in both worlds, it’s just who we are,” explains Hearts of Saints frontman Craig Felker. “We’re not a rock band covering worship songs; we feel called to write fresh expressions. Truth be told, we’ve never been all that interested in simply singing songs to people anyway. We want to sing songs with people.”
Covering a wide subject range, For All of Us is chock full of anthemic songs that speak to the real world joys and heartaches of the faith journey. The project is being well-received by critics, with CCM Magazine giving it 4 stars and Gospel Music Channel online naming the band "One to Watch in 2013."
Also notable, in December, the band's Christmas single "The Shepherd's Song (God With Us)" broke Top 20 on the Billboard Christian AC chart. The debut single from For All of Us, "Merciful God," is currently vying for adds at Christian AC and CHR radio.
