Jacksonville, FL – After nearly a four-year absence from radio, the Frye Family Band (Nashville) makes their return with the new single “Better Things” from their latest EP, Things Unseen.
The new project is produced by Michael Farren who has written songs for artists such as Laura Daigle, Reba McIntire, and Michael W. Smith, to name a few. “Full Moon” was co-written by Maggie Frye Neal and Rhyan Shirley (Colton Dixon, Corey Voss, Dustin Smith, Cityalight).
“Rhyan and I (Maggie) met up to write a song one late summer night in Nashville. That had been the end of a very difficult summer for me where I felt it had cost me everything to follow Jesus, and I had no idea where He was leading me. To be honest, I was exhausted. As we sat and sipped sweet tea, we talked about how merciful God is. Because it’s in the darkest times that His light is the brightest. While still recognizing that the pain and the darkness are real, this is a song of hope to the One who is in our pain and darkness with us.” “This new recording has been our most deliberate project to date,” says Tom, “from the song selection and writing process, all the way through the production. Moving forward with this project was a huge step of faith for us, but in this process we have seen God at work in ways we would have otherwise missed.”
The band has expanded their reach in their various events, offering resources for families that go well beyond music.
“In addition to concerts, we have created what we call Deliberate Family events through our Family First Ministries,” says Tom. “These events are
flexible enough that they can focus on men, women, couples, parents, or families. I also have written small group studies for post-event use. Lisa and I have seen first-hand the blessings of focusing less on raising children and more on raising disciples.
These events, by and large, are an effort to pay that forward. Additionally, I also offer Worship Workshops for churches. They include a session on the role music plays in our worship services, hands on coaching, accountability materials which I developed while serving as a worship pastor. At the core of both the Deliberate Family Events and the Worship Workshop is the desire to see others grow as both disciples and worshipers of Jesus.”
