Broken With You, the Burtonwood Records debut from singer/songwriter Nathan Sheridan, will release September 14. Featuring 11 songs written or co-written by Sheridan, the collection draws from the young artist's powerful life story of overcoming profound adversity and loss.
"Through my music and ministry, I really just want to share my story," Sheridan says. "So many are walking through seasons of loss or dealing with broken family relationships. I want them to know they are not alone, that they can hold onto hope in the darkest of situations. Whether it is through my words or songs, I ultimately want to point anyone listening to the true Hope we have in Christ."
Produced by Jeremy Holderfield (Seventh Day Slumber), Broken With You features "Loves Like That," the project's buoyant first single. "Even when you don't feel perfect or you don't feel like you're worthy of love, you've been made in God's image, and He loves you because He created you," Sheridan explains of the song's message. "When you can't find love in other places, you can find love in Him. You don't have to be perfect to be loved perfectly."

A Timely Contemporary Pop Offering| Posted September 11, 2018 What You Need To Know
Rising from the challenges of a childhood filled with loss, Nathan Sheridan offers a pop debut that draws on the sonic footwork tread by many of his contemporaries, while employing an honest perspective that gives the production a fresh angle.
What's It Sounds Like
Mixing some slightly bluesy toe-tapping pop in the first few tracks with quieter reflective moments and more standard contemporary fare, the songs here never cease to be accessible to fans of modern Christian radio. The varied styles keep the album from becoming stale, and debut single "Loves Like That" is a fine example of Sheridan at his best with a catchy and rousing number.
The album's primary theme is encouragement, whether it's dealing with struggle ("Minute By Minute") or what it's like to be loved by Christ ("Loves Like That"). But, the album also deals with calls to action ("Starts With You and Me") and rejecting the need to live for the opinion of others ("Don't Get It"). These are all fairly standard CCM themes, but Sheridan's background and emotive voice sell the familiar messages in a fresh, new way.
