The Rock Music is a collective of singer/songwriters and worship leaders from Salt Lake City's The Rock Church. This weekend they released a new single titled "All Around," and it's now available. Featuring worship leader Steele Croswhite, the joyful anthem celebrates the omnipresence of God and encourages listeners to embrace the beauty He has bestowed through nature, human relationships, and the Church.
Penned by Croswhite along with Randal Topper, Joseph Young, Thomas Scribner, and produced by Nate Pyfer, "All Around" was inspired by Philippians 4:8. "With so much uncertainty in our world, troubling news, and division that can easily bog us down, it's so easy to fix our minds on things that are not admirable, not lovely, or not excellent," Croswhite explains of the song's meaning. "The Philippians verse challenges us to fix our eyes on what is true, honorable, right, pure, lovely and admirable; to think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise."
"If we stop to consider this, we find God's amazing love all around us," Croswhite adds. "We recognize His love in creation, in our relationships, in the Church, through the grace of Christ, and in the Father's love and the fellowship of the Spirit. His love is truly all around, we need only to stop and realize it."
For nearly two decades, The Rock Music has been dedicated to writing, recording, and performing Christ-centered music without compromise. The collective--helmed by singer/songwriter, worship leader, and pastor Steele Croswhite--has released 13 full-length recordings and seven EPs. In addition, selections from The Rock Music are showcased on DREAM Records releases God's Not Dead: A Light In Darkness and Samson, compilations featuring songs from and inspired by the motion pictures.
The Rock Music is a ministry of The Rock Church, a suburban Salt Lake City congregation on a mission to share the hope and grace of Christ in Utah--a state with among the fewest Bible-believing Christians in the country. Through outreach efforts in the community, including to those from Mormon/LDS backgrounds, the church seeks to work together, in unity, to reach the world for Jesus Christ.
Signing his first record deal at the age of 21, Steele Croswhite began his career as the lead vocalist, songwriter, and guitarist for the acclaimed rock band Silvercrush. While the group earned Billboard chart success and toured with such artists as Sheryl Crow, Foo Fighters, and Maroon 5, Croswhite's life was falling apart. He drifted from his Christian upbringing, lured by the trappings of fame and reeling from his father's untimely death. Encouraged by his sister to visit The Rock Church, it was there Croswhite experienced the true grace of Jesus Christ and rededicated his life to the Lord. Today, he serves as a pastor and worship leader at the church.
