EDITORS’ NOTES

With echoing, Gaelic undertones, this hymns project owes its simplicity to Audrey Assad’s Plymouth Brethren roots (where voices were the only instrumentation), and its liturgy to her current Catholic faith. Drums on the otherwise stark “Be Thou My Vision” prove a welcome surprise, while Assad’s “I Wonder as I Wander” conjures earthy images of faraway forests. “Even Unto Death,” penned with pal Matt Maher, is fragile and fearless, and her dewy version of “Holy, Holy, Holy” breathes new life into old lyrics.

Audrey voice calls us to worship our creator

Mom in VA,

Audrey has a truly amazing gift in that she can emote joy, love, pain and sorrow through - all in one breath - through the angelic tones in her voice. Truly astounding!

Rare mix of old and new

ChrisDuffel,

Inheritance is that rare album that taps into something that seems so deeply rooted and ancient, yet is at the same time something brimming with new life. This is what and who God is, and it overflows in this soundscape of song and chant.

Can’t recommend this album highly enough, especially for the person who has trouble praying and could use something beautiful to provoke contemplation of God and with God.

About Audrey Assad

Singer/songwriter Audrey Assad, a New York native, began her musical journey after relocating to Florida at the age of 18. It was there that the deeply spiritual Assad decided to focus all of her energies on her faith. A flurry of local shows and worship events followed, resulting in a move to Nashville and a five-song EP called Fireflies that drew the attention of CCM label Sparrow Records. Assad continued to hone her craft, writing songs for other performers and touring with Dove Award-winning artist Chris Tomlin. Her full-length debut for Sparrow, The House You're Building, arrived on July 13, 2010. It did well commercially and critically, paving the way for 2012's Heart, which primarily featured writing work from Assad but also included contributions from Matt Maher, Christopher Stevens, Derek Webb, and Sandra McCracken. An independent album, Fortunate Fall, appeared in August 2013, followed by Inheritance in early 2016. ~ James Christopher Monger
