Recording artist and songwriter Chris Renzema announces the April 24 release of his sophomore, full-length album and Centricity Music debut, Let The Ground Rest.
With more than 35 million audio streams of his first album, I'll Be The Branches, over one million Spotify track saves over the last 12 months and Pandora naming him a 2020 "Artist to Watch," Renzema's acoustic, soul-stirring songs shift seamlessly from indie rock to folk worship to Americana; gritty but accessible, profound but listenable. His voice and lyrics cut to the bone as he sings about a hope that slices through life's inevitability, echoing the universality of both pain and praise.
"The heartbeat of whole album is the idea that growth comes from periods of rest, of barrenness. It's a process to see winter move to spring," conveys Renzema, reflecting on the theme behind Let The Ground Rest and first song he ever co-wrote, "Springtime," written with Hank Bentley. "It's a process to exist, to learn and understand God's love. While His love is not seasonal, we go through seasons as we understand and experience it. Spring is not spring without winter, and that process is a good thing."
