INOV8 Music Group artist Meredith Kinleigh, who has spent much of 2016 touring with the likes of Grammy Award-winning vocalist Jason Crabb and platinum-selling band Kutless, announces today’s release of a new single. The song, titled “Living Sacrifice,” was written by award-winning songwriters Mike and Deanna Geier. “Living Sacrifice” is being serviced to Christian INSPO and Christian AC-formatted radio stations and is available on iTunes, Google Play and all digital outlets.
“I’m so, so excited to release ‘Living Sacrifice’ to radio and to digital stores today,” Kinleigh said. “It's been such a fun journey receiving and working on this project! The song, written by the talented songwriting duo, Mike and Deanna Geier, is a wonderful song that is absolutely my heart and prayer. I found it amazing that the song resonated so much with me even though I did not write this song myself. I pray that every person that hears ‘Living Sacrifice’ will be captured by the message as much as I was!"
“Living Sacrifice,” produced by Sean Hill at Uphill Recording Studios,” follows the success of “Sail On,” the first single released from Kinleigh’s debut EP, “Beautiful Mess,” and “Beautiful Mess,” the title track. “Sail On” aired on more than 1,500 radio outlets worldwide and was the No. 2 song of 2015 on the Christian Radio Chart (CRC).
Mike and Deanna Geier, who penned “Living Sacrifice,” are a husband and wife duo who began their music careers more than 15 years ago in Hollywood, California. The couple works out of The Hidden Studio and have a placement studio named Velvet Rope Records. The songwriters have written and produced songs for independent and major label artists, as well as writing theme and background music for shows appearing on NBC, The CW, ABC, NICK, MTV and VH1. Their music also has been featured on national movie trailers and commercials.
