EDITORS’ NOTES

“Give me words to speak/Don’t let my spirit sleep,” implores Aaron Shust at the start of this tremendous album. He laments that he “can’t think of anything worth saying,” but inspiration strikes pretty quickly: The intro is followed by 11 tracks of uplifting, worshipful rock, adorned with big guitars and sly electronics, but most noteworthy for their earnest adoration. All the songs land, but the showstopper is the soaring ballad “My Savior My God.”

About Aaron Shust

A contemporary Christian singer and songwriter, Aaron Shust grew up in Pennsylvania but became a true musician in Georgia, where he studied music theory. His first album, Anything Worth Saying, was recorded in 2004, which landed him a deal with the Brash Music label soon thereafter. The album would end up becoming the fifth best-selling praise & worship record in 2006, and produced a genre radio hit with the single "My Savior My God." The song would go on to hit the top spot on a number of charts, eventually scoring Shust a Dove Award for Best Song. His second album, Whispered and Shouted, was released in the summer of 2007 to impressive sales, and featured the hit single "Give Me Words to Speak." Released in 2009, the full-length Take Over was followed by the Christmas EP, and 2011's This Is What We Believe included the number one hit "My Hope Is in You." In 2013 Shust released his fifth studio long-player, the Ed Cash-produced Morning Rises, and in 2014 he issued his first full-length holiday outing, Unto Us. Doxology arrived in 2015, followed in 2017 by Love Made a Way. ~ Chris True
