(Baltimore, Maryland) The wait is finally over as Encounter Hymn, the highly anticipated project from Gary Stewart and Aaron Stewart better known as The Stewart Brothers heads to digital outlets for pre order on February 5th, 2021.
“Its our very own hymn revival”, says Gary Stewart. “Hymns have been the go to songs for people of faith for hundreds of years. They have stood the test of time. Whereas new songs have come and gone and are maybe forgotten, you are able to hold on to When peace like a river attended my way, whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say, It is well. These songs are rich with meaning and purpose and enable us to feel just a little bit closer to Jesus. We wanted to appreciate the standards of the church that we all know and love and put our interpretation on them. Encounter Hymn allows us the space and place to do just that”.
EMG Vice President Garland Miche Waller stated, “Its quite refreshing to see a group of young people dedicated to their craft fostering appreciation for the hymns of the church. We are grateful that this project exists and are elated to see them reach impact other generations with hymns”.
Lift Him Up, the first single has been serviced to radio and the Stewart Brothers head to Praise Chapel on facebook in the coming week to promote the disc. Encounter Hymn hits all digital outlets and streaming platforms on February 19th.
