Nashville-based singer/songwriter Abby Robertson released today her most personal track to date, “Sanctuary,” written during a trying time when her dad was suffering from a major health problem. Robertson was able to turn inward and find peace the only way she knows how – through the power of God. The chilling, uplifting tune, which showcases Robertson’s powerful, angelic vocals, was co-written with Tyrus Morgan (Unspoken, We Are Messengers), Dave Lubben (Halsey, Carly Rae Jepson, Corey Harper, TobyMac), Kevin Mac and Andrea Robertson, and is being released via her new deal with Big Future Music Group. “Sanctuary” is available now to download or stream.
“I remember my mom reaching for a Bible when my dad was struggling with this health issue and randomly flipping to Psalm 150:1, which says, ’Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens.’ Me, my mom, my brother, and my dad all praised God in that moment—a moment that would later become this song.”
Though still early in her career, Robertson has a lot to be proud of: she’s opened for names like The Beach Boys and Switchfoot and has performed at international music festivals in Israel, Malta, and Ethiopia. She’s released pop songs and even had a stint in country music—all before age 21.
However, if you ask Abby what her proudest career moment is so far, it’s not the festivals, or big-name openers, or the impressive number of Spotify downloads. What Abby is most proud of are the moments she’s been able to be her authentic self with her music and on stage. As she explains it, “Not worrying about what people think about me and being raw and real.” Not an easy task, especially for a female recording artist navigating the current cultural landscape.
Robertson is thrilled to be the first artist to sign with Big Future, where she plans to continue releasing songs that ring true to her authentic self and provide inspiration and healing for all who listen.
