Contemporary Christian/Gospel artist Katy Crawford has released her newest EP entitled Dwell, which takes listeners on a journey through the Book of Psalms.
Produced by Billy Smiley and recorded at Sound Kitchen and Red Street Records outside of Nashville, Dwell is a six-track collection of songs written during a time when Ms. Crawford felt the Lord calling her to read through and write a new song from Psalms every day. Her fresh and sincere take on these scriptures allows the listener to feel a deeper connection with those ancient words, many of which focus on glorifying God in times of distress.
“This EP is particularly relevant during this season around the globe,” said Ms. Crawford. “My hope is that this offering will minister to those who need a fresh touch from the Lord in these difficult times. It was truly a blessing to create this EP and I pray that the message of strengthening and encouragement from God will bless listeners as well.”

About Katy Crawford
Katy Crawford is a Contemporary Christian/Gospel singer-songwriter who has led worship both at her church in the United States and within many French-speaking countries and South America. Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, she grew up in church, ministering alongside her family. She strives to bring the songs the Lord has given her to people around the world.
Her ministry within France and other French-speaking countries led her to the 2015 release of a French language worship EP, Pour Te louer, which was her first professionally-produced EP. Having seen the deep need for God in today’s Europe, she felt the call to release the new songs God was giving her to a people in desperate need of His Spirit.
Gleaning inspiration from her love of many genres of music, including jazz, bluegrass, and pop, her first full-length album, Our Love Story, released in 2016, displays a personal journey with God, beginning with the realization of His goodness and love through times of difficulty and favor.
Ms. Crawford’s music demonstrates the depth and passion of falling in love with the God who is love. The mission for her next English-language EP, Closer, released in 2017, is no less passionate and heart-felt than that of her previous work. This album expresses the earnest desire to be closer to God and to maintain complete focus on Him.
Working with renowned Nashville producer Billy Smiley, she released two singles, Grace That Saves the World and By My Side. The first, released for Christmas in 2019, is a melodic and powerful song about accepting and partnering with God in His plan for this Earth, much in the way that Mary accepted the call to become the mother of Jesus. The second, released in March 2020, is an intimate prayer to the Lord from a place of brokenness, expressing the need to continue to find our identity in Him no matter what circumstance.
Ms. Crawford’s newest project, Dwell, once again produced by Smiley, is a true message of hope and God’s faithfulness taken directly from the Book of Psalms. It is the latest in a collection of releases by Ms. Crawford that reflects her heart for ministry and dedication to the calling the Lord has placed on her life to reach the nations through music.
