"Silence is almost the antithesis of modern life; we are the most over-stimulated generation in the vast history of humanity," shares Ellis, revealing the impetus behind Growing Silent. "When we stop our endless torrents of words and noise that we throw at God all day, every day, we are able to stand silently before God and only then really get to know Him.
"We are repeatedly encouraged in the Bible to be still and silent, things which seem more difficult to do now than ever before," continues Ellis. "Silence of the heart, silence of the mind, even silence of the tongue, these are the foundations of a contemplative way of life, which is where the deep things of God truly reside."
Featured on Growing Silent are three songs written in 2005 with multiple Grammy Award-winning Matt Redman: "Hope Springs Eternal," "Rose Again" and "Anywhere and Everywhere." It also includes the Ellis-penned "If God," first featured on Tree63's 2015 reunion album, Land.
