One by One is one of the most spiritual hymns I've heard in a long time. Cardall continues to impress and inspire me with each album he releases. Please keep making great music with such a healing power.
I can't even describe the feelings that rush over me while listening to this album. About halfway through, I literally had to take my headphones off and pause for a moment because it is so overwhelmingly beautiful. Thank you for this new creation, and please keep it up.
I took part in premiering a couple of these pieces on temple square and "One by One" brought me to tears both nights. It made it hard to continue singing but it testified of the truth behind this song. Absolutely uplifting!
About Paul Cardall
Contemporary jazz pianist Paul Cardall was born April 24, 1973; suffering from a congenital heart defect, he was given only days to live but defied medical expectations, enduring a series of surgeries and illnesses throughout his childhood. Finding comfort in music, Cardall began piano lessons at age eight but quit six months later, not playing again for a decade. While in high school, however, tragedy struck when one of his best friends was killed in a car accident; a grieving Cardall spontaneously composed a musical tribute, going on to write a dozen more songs and in 1995, privately pressing an album. Around that same time he took a job playing piano at a local department store during the holiday season, and selling his record to customers; one copy of the disc made its way to author Richard Paul Evans, the writer of the best-seller The Christmas Box, who invited Cardall to write and record a musical adaptation of the book. The resulting album, also titled The Christmas Box, was released in 1997; upon signing to the Narada label, Cardall reissued the album two years later in conjunction with a new effort, The Looking Glass, which, like its predecessor, drew inspiration from Evans' novels. Cardall issued two albums in 2002, Daily Devotions and Miracles: A Journey of Hope and Healing. Stone Angel has distributed many of his releases, including 2004's Christmas Hymns, Vol. 1 and 2007's Songs of Praise. His 2009 effort Sacred Piano began his relationship with Shadow Mountain Records, the label that released his 2011 effort New Life, which debuted at number one on the Billboard New Age Charts. He released two albums in 2014: Saving Tiny Hearts and New Life. 40 Hymns for 40 Days was released in 2015, and A New Creation followed in 2016. ~ Jason Ankeny
