Nashville, TN (August 15, 2019)
Bowyer & Bow/Capitol Christian Music Group artist, songwriter and worship leader Pat Barrett will be releasing his first live project, Canvas and Clay, on August 23rd. Barrett’s live album follows his highly acclaimed and successful self-titled debut from 2018 that included the No. 1 single “Build My Life.”
“Canvas and Clay is about trusting the process of formation in our lives. I love the picture of God being a master artist. It makes verses like in Romans 8 He makes all things work together—so dynamic. He uses every aspect of our lives and He doesn’t do waste. Jesus didn’t invite people into a quick, easy transformation. There are times when it feels like two steps forward and one step back, and it’s in those moments that we get to remember that He is still forming us even today. We get to grow in love, kindness, forgiveness, goodness, self control, and more. I hope that this song helps people along in that journey.” —Pat Barrett
This live album was captured in Atlanta at 1971 Sounds Studio and became less about making a live album and more about having a night of worship and sharing the songs and moments that happened.

“There is just a really beautiful thing that happens when you experience songs in a live setting,” explains Barrett. “It’s like anything can happen. Some of the songs went longer than we planned and there were spontaneous moments that we felt were important to keep and share. Our relationship with God is such an experiential thing that is filled with the unknown. There are things that we prepare for and things that happen that you could never prepare for. I always love the posture of leading worship that says we have some songs planned, but this isn’t about songs…it’s about us connecting with God…so let’s see what happens. I love that we were able to capture and share a night like that.”
