Singer/songwriter, worship leader, producer and former Chris & Conrad co-founder Conrad Johnson is poised for a new chapter in an already-acclaimed career, making his solo debut–known simply as Conrad–with a series of new songs this spring. Lead single "Never Let You Go," an upbeat, powerful testimony to the steadfast love of God--available now on all streaming platforms.
"'Never Let You Go' was written to encourage anyone going through dark and lonely times," Conrad says. "There are so many fighting anxieties and depression and my prayer is this song reminds them that no matter how hard life gets, God will never let them go."
Other songs from Conrad, "Won't Hold You Back," and "Holy" will be released on May 3rd and May 17th respectively.
"'Won't Hold You Back' was written during a Holy Spirit moment at my studio with my friend Corey Voss," Conrad shares. "We were discussing what God was showing us and realized we were hearing the same thing--holy boldness. I started playing some chords and this prayer and melody came out, asking for boldness to lead people to be set free. I believe there is nothing that can ever hold God back, but this song is more about us not holding back within ourselves and missing out on being a part of what God wants to do through us. It's a prayer for holy boldness to share His love and truth with those around us, even when it may be uncomfortable."
Rising to prominence as half of the former hit duo Chris & Conrad ("Lead Me To The Cross"), Conrad is also a sought-after songwriter, producer and engineer. As an engineer, he contributed to Michael W. Smith's 2019 GRAMMY®-nominated album Surrounded.
