Today, eight-time GRAMMY® nominated artist Matt Maher releases his sixth studio album titled Echoes. This new project is a collection of declarations in the midst of dealing with human suffering. After writing most of the songs for the record, Matt lost his father and the album took on a new meaning that was more personal. In his own moment of loss, Matt found himself processing his grief from the truths and declarations in the new songs. "This album asks the question, ‘How do we echo our faith?’" Matt shares "It is possible to have hope and joy that is not governed by fear, and this record points to that and not a gloom, bleak picture of suffering. I want to remind people once again to believe in a God that gives us hope, joy and peace.” Echoes digs deeper, exposing the raw nerve of love and loss, and piercing it with truth in songs such as "Your Love Defends Me" which reminds worshipers that God is our refuge and defender and "Faithfulness," which features Bethel Music's Steffany Gretzinger and praises that God is forever faithful.
