More about this item

by Audrey Assad

A true songbird and songsmith, Audrey Assad weaves heart-and-soul lyrics with melodies you'll want to sing over and over again. Her much-anticipated sophomore album includes the radio single "Sparrow," a rearrangement of the classic hymn; "Blessed Are the Ones"; "Even the Winter"; "The Way You Move"; "Breaking You"; "No Turning Back"; "Won Me Over"; "Wherever You Go"; and "O My Soul."

2012 sophomore album from the Christian singer/songwriter. The heart finds Audrey once again collaborating with other songwriters and producer Marshall Altman (Brooke Fraser, Natasha Bedingfield, Marc Broussard) crafting another collection of songs that mine the depths of both heart and soul as only Audrey can. The 27-year-old, Nashville-based singer/songwriter stepped into the spotlight with her debut album, The House You're Building, also produced by Altman. Released in the summer of 2010 to critical and artistic acclaim, Assad's fresh sound was named among the best of 2010 from Relevant Magazine, Rhapsody.com, Gospel Music Channel online, and more and was even profiled on CNN Online.

Album Notes:
Personnel: Audrey Assad (piano, Fender Rhodes piano, background vocals); Jeremy Lutito (guitar); Marshall Altman (acoustic guitar, drum programming, background vocals).Recording information: Echo Mountain Studios, Asheville, NC; Electric Thunder, Nashville, TN; The Galt Line, Nashville, TN.Illustrator: Bob Roman.Photographer: Reid Rolls.Arrangers: Audrey Assad; Marshall Altman. Channeling the classic singer/songwriter pop of the '70s and the introspective coffeehouse fare of the mid-'90s, contemporary Christian vocalist Audrey Assad's second album, Heart, is a much more organic affair than her Dove Award-nominated debut. Its 12 tracks may share the same producer as 2010s The House You're Building in the shape of Marshall Altman (Natasha Bedingfield, Kate Voegele), but other than the driving soft rock of "Even the Winter" and "Won Me Over," and the quirky synths on "No Turning Back," the New Jersey native adopts a gorgeously understated and stripped-back approach that allows her fragile ethereal vocals to take center stage, whether it's the warm Carole King-inspired soul-pop of "The Way You Move," the piano-led melancholy of "Lament," or the slow-burning torch song "O My Soul." The skittering percussion on opener "Blessed Are the Ones," an honest look at the challenges of newlywed life, and the harmony-laden "Wherever You Go" helps to provide a bit of backbone to the delicate acoustics, as does the brave cover of "His Eye Is on the Sparrow," which turns the gospel hymn into a Sarah McLachlan-esque slice of dreamy pop. And while a series of unremarkable ballads toward the end sees Assad drift into autopilot, the appropriately titled Heart is, on the whole, an impassioned and sincere affair worthy of joining recent efforts from Ingrid Michaelson and Sara Bareilles in the same new Lilith Fair stable. ~ Jon O'Brien
