Jeff Deyo Releases Fifth Worship Album, Moving Mountains, 08.07
Posted: Monday July 30th, 2012
Best known as the original lead singer of Dove Award-winning group Sonicflood, celebrated worship leader and solo artist Jeff Deyo releases his fifth worship album, Moving Mountains, on August 7th. The project seeks to encourage listeners to persevere in faith and trust God's goodness, even, and especially, in the midst of hardship and difficulty.
Produced by Otto Price (Nicole C. Mullen, BarlowGirl) and Mark Heimermann (Downhere, newsboys) Moving Mountains finds its inspiration from Mark 11:22-24, which talks about having unwaivering faith. Deyo explains, "Moving mountains is not about God fixing all our problems - you know, eliminating all obstacles from our path. It is about believing in the Lord Most High, even in the most impossible of situations. It is about trusting Him to care for me, to rescue me, to do what is best for eternity and for His Kingdom, which is inevitably best for us. It is about faith."
Moving Mountains, featuring co-writers Sarah Reeves and Jonathan Lee on select songs, blends pop rock with soulful groove and striking melodies with meaningful words in modern congregational expressions. Tracks like "We Delight" is an unabashed anthem of praise to the King, while "Rescue Me" expresses one's heart-cry for deliverance in desperate times. "The Perfection of Beauty" speaks to God's saving grace amidst our brokenness and "Moving Mountains" is a bold declaration of trust in His divine providence.
"In recording this CD, my heart burns particularly for people to be stirred in their faith to trust God for rescue in the hardest of times," says Deyo. "Nothing would please me more than if people would join me in singing these very personal, scripture-breathed corporate worship songs, with the sudden knowledge that they are coming into agreement with deep and powerful Biblical truths. Then, in turn, their faith would be stirred to believe for the moving of the mightiest of mountains."
Moving Mountains will be available via all digital music outlets. For more information, visit www.jeffdeyo.com.
