Venture3Media (V3M) continues its Simple Hymns series with today’s (Feb. 7) release of Simple Hymns: Songs of Easter featuring such well-known worship leaders as Chris Eaton, Kelly Minter, Leigh Nash (Sixpence None the Richer), London Gatch (Elevation Worship), Joanna Beasley (American Idol), Stephen Petree, Brian Ortize and more. The 10-hymn album is available on CD and at iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, Google Play, Deezer and additional digital, streaming and physical retail outlets globally.
The songs in this Simple Hymns installment are all centered around Easter, and include classic hymns written by Isaac Watts (“At The Cross"), John Newton (“We Knew Not What We Did”) and Charitie Lees Bancroft (“Before The Throne Of God Above”) as well as the Keith Getty, Kristyn Getty and Stuart Townend-penned "Behold The Lamb (Communion Hymn)” sung by London Gatch.
The hymn by Charles Wesley, “Christ The Lord Is Risen Today,” receives fresh interpretation by Abby Eaton, Chris Eaton and John Hartley, and is sung by six-time Dove Award winning Chris Eaton.


 Along with the new music, compelling acoustic videos of six of the songs being sung by the artists were recorded and are featured on a companion Simple Hymns: Songs of Easter (Deluxe Version) of the album that is exclusively available from Apple Music and iTunes.
Songs of Easter is the fifth of several new recordings in the Simple Hymns series to release in the coming months. It follows the Songs of Communion (Jan 10),Songs of Thanksgiving (Nov. 8), Songs Of Worship (Oct. 4) and Songs Of Redemption (Aug. 30) albums that are available now at Christian retailers and These recordings feature such acclaimed worship leaders as Pat Barrett (Housefires), Mack Brock (Elevation Worship), Derri Daugherty (The Choir), Chris McClarney, Paul And Hannah McClure (Bethel Music), Dan Koch, Aaron Keyes, Anthony Skinner, Sean Carter and many more.
Each new recording in the Simple Hymns series combines classic Hymns with a fresh interpretation, some with additional lyrics, as well as new songs that have been written and recorded in a hymn-like style and focusing on the Majesty and Greatness of God.
“These hymns and videos are purposefully simple with acoustic instrumentation, nothing overproduced to allow them to be sung by worship leaders in the most unplugged setting, or added to the worship music song selections in any sized church,” says Venture3Media President and Founder Steve Nicolle. “Simple Hymns are also well suited as a background for personal worship, reflection and devotions.”
“Simple Hymns is a response to those that long for a return to a richer and more lyric focused worship expression, combined with a simplicity of musical instrumentation,” Nicolle continues. “Worship music shifts in style from decade to decade, along with shifts in lyrical themes and focus. What makes the hymns so unique and special is their ability to stand the test of time. When times become more turbulent or uncertain, we tend to hold to things that have endured. Hymns give us that anchor and remind us that God’s love and His nature are unchanging."
Future Simple Hymns releases that are already being developed will feature hymns set around praise, Christmas and more.
