The notable artist/drummer/songwriter, Michael Feighan, will release his solo project, Someone Prayed, on October 15. Aside from delivering great vocals and music, Feighan has assembled an incredible team for the project. Matt Bissonette (Elton John, Ringo Starr) joined as the producer for Someone Prayed, while his brother, Gregg Bissonette (Ringo Starr), added his drumming expertise for the EP. The five-time Grammy® Award-winning engineer, Chris Lord-Alge (Bruce Springsteen, Tina Turner, Tim McGraw), also brought his talent to the mix.
The first single, "I Still Believe," was released on August 27 and it's available now on all platforms. It's a patriotic song that honors our military during Labor Day, September 11, and any day that salutes our nation. The song fulfills Michael and his dad's love for our country.
"Working with Michael has been an amazing blessing in my life," said Matt. "Our friends from Label Logic put us together, and we began writing songs together. I knew Michael was a really good singer and a great drummer, but I was blown away at what an amazing performer he is in the studio. He brought all the songs to another level, and his lyrical skills really made it easy to write the songs. But more important than that, he is a great human being with a desire to honor God in everything. God first, everything else follows. It's a great motto and principle that humbled me and made me want to do the same. What an amazing honor it is to work with this blessed man."
Someone Prayed is a four-song EP that includes the title track and "I Still Believe," along with two additional songs that were written for his wife and daughter. "Joy of Life" centers on the difficulties that his wife Christie faced during a rough time, and Michael's musical message centered on the joy of Christ. "Before Time Began" is a loving message to his daughter, Tatiana, after Michael and Christie flew to Russia and brought their daughter home to Texas after her adoption.
"Writing with Matt on this project was a dream come true, and one of the songs we did together was especially rewarding," said Feighan. "I had some previous lyrics that I had written about my daughter, Tatiana. My wife and I adopted her from Russia, and I thought it would be great to have Matt talk about his son in the second verse. He came up with the idea for the third verse that puts it all together and how we are all God's adopted children--and one day in heaven, He will be looking back at us. This song came out very powerful."
