Nashville, TN (February 22, 2019)
Integrity Music announces the March 1 global release of Still:Volume 3, a new installment in the label’s critically-acclaimed instrumental series that features guest artist-producers delivering a unique sound and aesthetic to each album. For the 12-track Still:Volume 3, the producers and musicians of Franklin, Tennessee-based indie label and production studio The Creak Music (NEEDTOBREATHE, Ben & Noelle Kilgore, Brandon Heath) take the reins.
The Creak team, composed of Seth Talley, Brad King and David Leonard (formerly of All Sons & Daughters), deliver their interpretations of worship favorites, hymns and new songs, including “10,000 Reasons,” “Just As I Am,” “Know Your Heart,” “Reckless Love,” “Cornerstone” and “All The Poor And Powerless.” The result is a seamless, atmospheric and often cinematic soundtrack for moments of prayer and meditation for individuals and churches.
“We brainstormed, made lists and suggested some of our favorite songs or songs to which we could bring a new perspective,” says Seth Talley of the creative process. “It was fun mapping out the songs, pressing in to use different sounds to hint at the original melodies and blending our three very different production styles to create something unique that all three of us love. We hope listeners will feel the same!”
Brad King adds: “Working on these songs definitely forced us to see them in a new way. We didn’t want to just replay the melody… this process forced us to think outside the box and come up with additional melodies and textures to bring new life to the songs.”
In addition to producing/playing on Still:Volume 3, The Creak team pulled in guest musicians, including Cara Fox on cello and acclaimed guitarist Stu G, formerly of Delirious?, who plays on the beloved Delirous? track “What A Friend I’ve Found.”
The complete tracklist for Still:Volume 3 is:
1. “All The Poor And Powerless”
2. “10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)”
3. “It Is Well”
5. “Know Your Heart”
6. “Just As I Am”
7. “How He Loves”
8. “Reckless Love”
9. “What A Friend I’ve Found”
11.“In Christ Alone”
“The guys at The Creak are making some of the most amazing music right now,” says Andrew Osenga, Director of A&R for Integrity. “Their production work for others is fantastic and David’s upcoming album is absolutely phenomenal. After a year of such hard work serving others, it was thrilling to hear what happened when they just holed up in the studio together with no agenda other than to create something beautiful.”
The Still series of instrumental albums, which previously featured guest artist-producers Rivers & Robots and Bright City, was created to help listeners still their hearts before God in worship and prayer. Each volume in the Still series is available through retail outlets and digital sales and streaming platforms.
