All The Saints: Live from the CentricWorship Retreat-No. 1
Hits iTunes Today
|Franklin, Tenn. (March 11, 2014) – The highly anticipated first offering from CentricWorship, All the Saints: Live from the CentricWorship Retreat-No. 1, is available for download on iTunes today, March 11, 2014. Executive produced by Steve Rice, VP of Centricity Publishing, the acoustically oriented worship EP includes eight modern classics penned by 12 of the country’s most inspiring songwriters and worship leaders during their week-long retreat in the Cascade Mountains.
“We went back to our roots on this project,” says Rice. “Musically it’s organic, authentic, intimate and quite song driven.” Those joining Rice for this intimate worship experience include Michael Farren (Pocket Full Of Rocks, writer of “Let It Rain”), Jared Anderson (Desperation Band, writer of “Great I Am” and “Amazed”), Henry Seeley (PlanetShakers), Seth Mosley (Billboard’s #1 Christian Producer of 2013 and #3 Christian writer of 2013), Anthony Skinner (writer of “Your Love Never Fails”), Mia Fieldes (Hillsong), James Tealy (writer of Kari Jobe’s hit, “We Are”), Riley Erin, and others.
With All the Saints: Live from the CentricWorship Retreat-No.1, the CentricWorship artists have created music that beautifully captures their incredibly authentic worship experience and remains accessible to listeners and church musicians regardless of age. Explains Rice: “Our prayer is that God alone will be glorified in the listening, the playing, and the singing of these songs for as long as they live in the Earth.”
For the EP’s first single, “Nothing But the Blood,” co-written by worship leader Corey Voss and producer Michael Farren, solid Biblical doctrine is interwoven beautifully with memorable melodies and traditional hymn-like elements, creating an instant classic for now and years to come. The EP’s title track, “All The Saints,” written by James Tealy, Michael Farren, and Henry Seeley, includes a powerful new chorus added to the rich hymn, “Holy, Holy, Holy,” which brings a fresh, modern feel to the beloved standard.
19 year-old Riley Erin, whose impassioned worship retreat experience is reflected through her simple yet profound lyrics and penetrating vocals on the captivating song, “Overwhelm Me,” illustrates the impact the retreat had not only on their songwriting-but in their lives as well. “There was such a spirit of unity,” she says. “We were all there with open hearts, ready to receive God. When we joined together, singing songs that had been written solely to honor Him, the experience was unlike any other, and I was so blessed to have seen firsthand the movement of God in those times of worship.”
