Editorial Reviews

2012 sophomore album from the Christian singer/songwriter. Heart finds Audrey once again collaborating with other songwriters and producer Marshall Altman (Brooke Fraser, Natasha Bedingfield, Marc Broussard) crafting another collection of songs that mine the depths of both heart and soul as only Audrey can. The 27 year-old, Nashville-based singer/songwriter stepped into the spotlight with her debut album, The House You're Building, also produced by Altman. Released in the summer of 2010 to critical and artistic acclaim, Assad's fresh sound was named among the best of 2010 from Relevant Magazine, Rhapsody.com, Gospel Music Channel online and more and was even profiled on CNN Online.

Audrey has such a sweet and smooth voice. Her lyrics are contemplative which are good for meditation and prayer. I have listened to her previous album many times and always find some new fruit to enjoy. This album is the same, very good lyrics, great melodies, just a nice soothing album. Her last album contained a song ("Restless") influenced by St. Augustine's "Confessions." I was told that "Blessed Are the Ones" has influence from C.S. Lewis. If you read good material, then you'll produce good material. Also, I met her after a concert a few weeks ago and have to say she is down to earth and genuine. God bless Audrey and I look forward to her future work.

Heart by Audrey Assad is the 2012 sophomore album from the Christian singer/songwriter. The album finds Audrey once again collaborating with other songwriters and producer Marshall Altman crafting another collection of songs that mine the depths of both heart and soul as only Audrey can. The 27 year-old, Nashville-based singer/songwriter stepped into the spotlight with her debut album, The House You're Building, also produced by Altman which was one of my top 10 albums of 2010. Do you remember the first time you listened to your favorite album of all-time? For many years, that album for me was Jars of Clay by Jars of Clay (1995) and then Casting Crowns by Casting Crowns (2003). Add Heart by Audrey Assad to that distinguished list of landmark Christian music albums.

I can't get enough of Audrey's singing voice and the incredible and introspective messages of her great songs. "Blessed Are The Ones" is a wonderful opener which Audrey co-wrote with Derek Webb and Sandra McCracken regarding her expectations of marriage. The gorgeous bridge, "Love is all we need" leads to Audrey's sensational vocals literally rising to another level. I hang on every single note. Audrey's first year of marriage framed the entire writing process of this album as her husband learned he had treatable cancer and you can at times physically feel Audrey's soul-imploring emotions in these twelve flawless and compelling songs. Audrey wrote "What It Ought To Be" for her husband before they were married, and God has used their trials to bring them even closer to Him and each other than they could have imagined. "Even The Winter" and "The Way You Move" each feature phrases that give closer glimpses of Audrey's walk with God, with Audrey crying out "even the dark cannot disarm us...

After a facebook recommendation, I discovered Audrey Assad and her debut album, what seems like a lifetime ago. I played it to death. Her new album is likely to follow the same path. I've not wanted to wish the time away for an album release in a long time.

This album doesn't seem to have as strong a christian message as its predecessor, but the impact it has is just as strong. At this moment, I am on my 10th listen. As Audrey mentions, this album is more about heart.

A variety of tempo's and melodies had me foot tapping my way through each track, re-arranging the listed favourites in my head. All the songs offer something. Her song writing is second to none and the gentle sprinkling of faith a reminding taste of where she has come from and where she is going. New Song is a fine way to end the album (the bonus track is also a gem). I cannot fault this album.

Audrey stands out like a sore thumb in my music collection amongst rock and metal bands of old and new. She is my favourite female artist to date. And I am a 34 yr old man.

I would advise anyone who does not know of Audrey, believers or non-believers to take a punt on this. You will not be disappointed.

Thank You Audrey

Audrey Assad manages the neat (and very difficult) trick of musical refinement and lyrical growth while not sacrificing an ounce of accessibility on her sophomore project, Heart. I actually found her debut, 2010's The House You're Building, falling too far on the "commercial" side of the spectrum while noticing that Assad was a much better lyricist than many of her contemporaries. The trick would be to create music with the same creative ceiling as her lyrics without losing her audience. While cuts like "Sparrow", "No Turning Back" and "Won Me Over" retain a radio ready sheen, they are brimming with a new sophistication, benefiting from Assad's apparent love for Joni Mitchell and Carole King, as that type of expansive, jazz inflected songwriting gives Heart a depth and gravity not found on a lot of radio -friendly Christian music. Lyrically. Assad's songs read like a personal journal of sorts, a record reflective of her experiences and detailing her observations about the mystery of the human heart. She moves effortlessly from the simply introspective pop of "Blessed Are the Ones," "Even the Winter," "The Way You Move" to the downright stark, disquieting honesty of a quartet of piano-heavy ballads, "Breaking You," "O My Soul," "Lament," and "Slow", all deeply affecting cuts that don't hedge at showing a less than perfect side of the artist. Take these lyrics from "Lament": "I'm Mary and I'm Martha all at the same time / I'm sitting at his feet and yet I'm dying to be recognized." The impatience she feels is tied up exquisitely, two cuts later in the realistic response of "Slow" as she eventually discovers "Faith is not a fire as much as it's a glow / A steady, humble lamplight in the window.Read more ›
