Following a season of listening, learning, and pressing into the promises of God, GRAMMY®-nominated, Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter RYAN STEVENSON returns with ABLE. His fourth full-length Gotee Records release, the highly anticipated eight song set—all co-penned by Stevenson—is a celebration of his identity in Christ.

The album’s opening track and latest digital single, “Closer” was written by Stevenson, Ethan Hulse and The Afters’ Jordan Mohilowski. Featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday Christian and Pandora’s New Christian Music Now, as well as other leading playlists, “Closer” depicts a watershed moment in Stevenson’s understanding of grace.

“I was raised in a strict religious environment, and I saw God through a lens of fear, wrath, and moodiness, thinking He was always disappointed in His creation,” Stevenson explains. “But in this last season, the Lord quietly led me out into a wilderness where He could get face-to-face with me. I believe He did this out of kindness and jealousy for my wholeness, to settle a lot of questions and doubts I’ve lived with for many years.”

“For the first time ever, I’ve become rooted and established in my beloved identity,” he adds. “The Holy Spirit has begun to peel off layers of insecurity and fear of rejection. 2 Corinthians 5:21 says we are ‘the righteousness of God,’ and Galatians 2:20 says we ‘have been crucified with Christ’ and that everything connected with the old flesh has died. This revelation has pierced my heart and brought me tremendous freedom and a passion for helping others see Jesus through the same lens.”

ABLE is also highlighted by the title-cut and debut single, a soul-stirring testimony of God’s faithfulness written by Stevenson, Blake NeeSmith and Jeff Pardo. In addition, the poignant “Carry Me,” which Stevenson co-penned with Micah Kuiper and AJ Prius, holds a particularly special meaning.

“’Carry Me’ is the deepest expression of how I’ve felt over the last three years,” Stevenson shares. “It’s been a daily prayer for me, having dealt with tremendous fear, uncertainty, and feelings of rejection. I experienced a lot of loneliness in this last season, and simply asking God to carry me felt like the prayer of a child longing for his dad.”

LOLA OMOBABA presents a beautiful worship song titled “Lamb Upon The Throne.” The song speaks about worshiping the Lamb who sits upon the throne and entreats the listener to ascribe all the glory and honour to the King of kings and Lord of lords.

In her words: “I received the inspiration for this worship song whilst driving to my place of work. I was worshiping God and suddenly the lyrics came to me. I quickly picked up my phone to record it and while recording the chorus, the verse of the song was released fresh from the throne room of grace and I started visualizing how heaven will look when we appear before the King of kings to worship Him with the 24 elders and the angels all day and night. My able producer, Amb. Wole Oni was able to arrange the song and gave it a finishing touch.

All To Jesus was produced by Michael Monroe, Andy Soemo, Stephen Pelatzky, David Neuman and was co-written by Michael Monroe, Koby Orr (Canyon Hills Worship) and Brandon Coker, Clay Finnesand (North Point Worship).

“Most of these songs were written at writing camps with our good friends Clay Finnesand and Brandon Coker from North Point Worship”, says Michael Monroe of Canyon Hills Worship. “They have become our constant collaborators. There’s something so special about writing with good friends. Getting to know the ins and outs of each other’s lives and walks with Jesus.

There is something so special about singing a new song all together in that room. This project was born out of a desire to continue singing new songs to the Lord at Canyon Hills. What a blessing it is to see these songs starting to impact people outside of our four walls.” – Michael Monroe, Canyon Hills Worship.   https://www.canyonhillscommunitychurch.com/worship/

‘All Power’, the latest offering from VESSELS UNITED, once again showcases the versatility and dynamism of the Manchester-based family group. While they often venture into R&B-influenced territory, ‘All Power’ finds them exploring a more Afrobeats-inspired sound.

The product is an infectious, dancefloor-filling anthem, which doubles-down on the captivating meeting-point between scriptural sensitivity and a radio-friendly, ultra-accessible sound.

As is tradition for Vessels United, ‘All Power’ is a family affair. Lucky, a worship leader at Manchester’s World Harvest Christian Centre, penned the uptempo track last year as an invigorating message to all those feeling down and discouraged. Ofure, Lucky’s daughter, takes the lead for the second verse, and in doing so introduces a spellbinding ethereality and subtlety to the track.

Lucky’s wife and son, Busola and David, also serve as rousing additions to ‘All Power’, highlighting the dexterity that is acilitated by the unique collaboration of the Vessels United family.
