With numerous songs published by Vineyard Music, Sheri Carr has been featured on some of Vineyard Music's most popular worship recordings including Dwell, More Than Ever, and Stand In Awe.
For her debut solo release, FEARLESS NOW, veteran producer Nathan Nockels and a talented group of musicians have joined with Sheri to create a project that highlights her incredible songwriting and vocal abilities, while consistently focusing the listener on the Father. "I have been so humbled and blessed by the incredibly talented musicians that have contributed to this project," says Carr. "God is amazing to orchestrate it all the way He has." So often referred to as "that girl on the Vineyard record", listeners will finally be able to put a face and a name to that voice when Fearless Now, the solo debut from Sheri Carr, hits store shelves on May 6th.

SOARING VOCALS PROPEL SEASONED WORSHIP LEADER| Posted September 24, 2008
In keeping with the times, pioneering worship label Vineyard Music introduced its Varietal imprint to catch up to the artist-driven nature of the American worship scene. In the past, the label was content with simply introducing songs for the church, never individual worship leaders, but the times they are a-changin’.
Though new to Varietal, worship leader Sheri Carr is a seasoned vocalist for Vineyard—10 years worshipping with them and counting. But not too fast: Carr’s national debut, Fearless Now, is fiercer and more radio-friendly than anything she’s recorded in the past, coming across like a caffeinated, high-powered version of Passion’s Christy Nockels…and then some.
The Nockels comparison isn’t too farfetched. The project was helmed by Christy’s husband, Nathan Nockels, a longtime Passion collaborator and worshipper who knows a thing or two about producing worshipful pop acts. Carr herself is one heck of a pop singer, a powerhouse who can soar to insurmountable heights in one song (“Sing Your Praise”) only to deliver a fragile prayer in the next (“Just as the Angels”).
The latter is perhaps Fearless Now’s most congregational tune—most everything else is too performance-oriented to leave a mark in corporate set lists. Still, the album packs enough emotional punch and is carried by such a strong vocal from Carr, one can readily forgive the fact that, more often than not, the tunes are melodic to the point of overload. –Andree Farias
