Indie Artist Spotlight (FULL LOGO 1057)


Audrey Assad

Audrey Assad is a worship leader and musician who writes, in her own words, “soundtracks for prayer.”She has penned her contemplative songs of worship with (and for) Matt Maher, Christy Nockels, Brett Younker, Sarah Hart, Meredith Andrews, and others—Audrey’s passion is to write fragrant, prayerful music that truly leads to encountering Jesus Christ, even in the silence of the heart.

Inheritance, slated to release in early 2016, is a collection of hymns and original praise & worship songs that pays homage not only to her Plymouth Brethren childhood heritage, but also to her Catholic faith and charismatic spirituality. “I grew up in a church where we didn’t use any instruments on Sunday mornings,”Assad notes. “I learned to sing there, from the old hymnbooks, in four part harmony, with my family and my neighbors. It was multi-generational, it was deep and rich and beautiful, and like most of my favorite worship music, it was steeped in community.”The record blends these influences and infuses them with a truly modern sensibility—Inheritance is Audrey’s best effort at honoring her roots and, inspired by them, crafting something fresh, fragrant, and new.
