It has been a long time coming but I'm excited to say that my new EP, Why We Sing is now available! After 10 years of making music, it feels right to release this collection of songs that are a reminder to me, and hopefully to you who listen, why it is we keep singing.
Last fall, with several family members, I witnessed my grandfather transition from this earth into the forever kingdom of God. He passed away in a hospital bed as we sang the words to the final verse of the modern hymn “In Christ Alone”. 10 minutes after his passing our family sang the doxology around his bed. Praise God from whom all blessings flow... praise Him all creatures here below...praise Him above ye heavenly hosts...
I learned a great lesson in Praise on that day. In those moments of loss there is nothing to lean on but the power and promise of a loving God.
It has been experiences like these in the last couple years that have led me to record “Why We Sing”, an EP of hymns and worship songs.
I hope that as you listen, no matter where you are on your journey, you will be inspired to sing. Because the journey itself, with all of it’s uncertainty’s, is one of the reasons why we sing. And my heart needed to sing these songs.
I hope you enjoy the new EP! Click here to check it out in the store section of allirogers.com. Also please check out some of the other work by Scott Erickson who painted the artwork for the cover, I'm a huge fan!
