Biography

Dove award winning singer/songwriter Laura Story always knew she loved music but didn’t realize she could sing or write songs until she was in her early twenties. After joining a band called Silers Bald, in which she played upright bass, she was challenged to try background vocals and even write a song to contribute to the band’s album. Story more than rose to the opportunity. She found a gift for singing and songwriting which, until that moment, she was unaware that she possessed. In 2002, she began work on her first independent album, and it was on this album that she debuted the title track and now hit worship song “Indescribable.” In 2004, Ed Cash, music producer and friend of Story’s, recommended that Chris Tomlin record the song as his first single. This suggestion brought the song through the doors of churches across America and the world, as “Indescribable” became one of the most popular worship songs of the decade. It remained number one on the AC charts for seven weeks and in the top 15 for 50 weeks. The song was also included on the Passion CD/DVD in 2005, Tomlin’s 2006 release “Live from Austin Music Hall,” and performed by Avalon for WoW worship 2006. But despite the song’s success, Story remained humble, explaining that the song was born while driving through the Appalachian Mountains where she was praising the Lord for the beauty that surrounded her and for His sovereign hand on her life. It was this knowledge of the sovereignty of God that would carry her through the challenges that lay ahead.

MultiTracks Now Available from Open Hands by Laura Story

Tuesday, March 28, 2017Categories: News, Home Page, New Releases, English

GRAMMY® winner Laura Story recently released her fifth album, Open Hands, examining the beauty found in surrendering, relinquishing control and trusting God.  “It’s about learning to live with open hands," Laura shares, "learning to live life in this constant state of saying, ‘Lord, my life is Yours. My time is Yours. My resources are Yours. All of this is Yours. Do what You will.’”  Open Hands’ fresh collection of originals blends Laura’s signature congregational worship with intimate moments. “I wanted to make an album so that each song I write would be just that seed of hope or that lifeline that someone listens to during that tough moment and thinks, ‘I’m going to choose to trust God, even during this,’” she comments. “I pray that God would speak through me in the midst of the music.”  The album includes a few reimagined versions of classic hymns "Awake My Soul (A 1000 Tongues)" and "For the Love of My King" as well as a cover of North Point InsideOut's popular Easter anthem, "Death Was Arrested."  "Give You Faith" is another standout, which Laura wrote concerning the legacy she wishes to leave her children.  “The song is about releasing your kids into the hands of God,” she explains. “ The most important thing that we could possibly give our children is to not just tell them about the faith that we have but to live out that faith as a family."  We encourage you to check out the entire album, as it is filled with anthems that both refresh and encourage.  Download your copy of Open Hands today on iTunes.
