What was your biggest inspiration in writing and recording Hear Me? We’re passionate about music and love music so much, but it’s really a vehicle that will carry us to our end goal of meeting people’s needs. Really being the hands and the feet that we’re called to be in the Bible. My inspiration for the songs that I was a part of writing on the album and the songs that I want to continue to write for future albums will always come from how this song will connect with a broad audience, people that believe and people that don’t believe, and if it will help them make that step to Christ and the freedom that they need.
What song would you consider the core song to the album? We all felt strongly about Come To Me, the first single we released to radio and that is on the radio right now. It was one of the first songs that got this process started for us, and it came together pretty easily, and it’s such a simple song and communicates well.
What message do you want listeners to walk away with after hearing your album? Really what I would say is one of the lines from Come To Me, which is, “no matter who you are, no matter where you have been, no matter what you have done, there is hope for you, there is forgiveness for you, if you only come.” So more than anything, the message of the Gospel is for everybody. It doesn’t matter your color, your language, where you’re from. We are all the same, we’ve all sinned, and we all need grace. None of us is more or less than the other, and we all need grace in the same way. There is hope no matter who you are.
