The Maker [edit]
by Chris August | Genre: AC/Inspo | Release Date: April 07, 2015
 

To capture the most authentic sound and genuine emotion possible, Chris and producer Ed Cash opted to track the third studio album from Chris live--pretty much the opposite of most music that's recorded these days.

Working from scratch tracks, they pretty much "pressed record and just played the music." The resulting songs are soulful and honest, not to mention, a lot of fun to record.

Making A Mark | Posted February 18, 2015
What do you get when you mix a witty sense of humor and insane talent with a humble spirit and soulful voice? For CCM fans, Chris August's name should come to mind immediately.

Since his "Starry Night" days, the GMA Dove Award winner has been adding a special something to Christian music, and with his latest effort The Maker, he continues to make a mark on the genre.

Recently released title track "The Maker" has been met with an overwhelming approval and excitement for the rest of the album, boasting the confident lyrics "I never have to wonder if somebody cares for me / I love the Maker / and the Maker loves me."

On the personal side of the album, "I'm In Love With You" serves as a sweet love song, while "Paradise" tells the story of a lost loved one and the hope of seeing them again in Heaven.

Upbeat "He's Still Here" challenges listeners to have faith in a God who still works miracles, and lyrically power-packed "Drop Your Stone" is a call to stop judgement and show grace to others.

"Gotta Be A Change" brings a different sound into the project, speaking of the change that happens in us when we accept Christ's mercy. Easily the standout track featured here, "Find You To Find Me" shows off Chris's silky smooth vocals and compelling way of telling his life's story within a song.

"Just The Same" visits the more worshipful side of this album and praises God for His amazing grace over all our mistakes. Closing out the album, "Superhero" and "Something" are a few more love songs, sure to make all the ladies appreciate Chris's charming songwriting ability.

Closing Thoughts:
Lyrically, The Maker is August's strongest effort to date. It's a project hard to find fault with, combining his captivating voice with different sounds and powerful lyrics. Fans of Chris will recognize the same style they've come to love from his music in these new songs while at the same time appreciating the evolution we're hearing as he becomes quite a seasoned artist. The Maker succeeds as a well made record, while Chris August continues to make a mark on Christian music.
