Atlanta-based singer, songwriter Harvest is unveiling Preachers (GoForth Sounds, Heritage Music) today. The self-taught pianist delivers a bold collection of nine songs that bypass the need for louder, bigger and technical. With piano and string orchestration by The Brilliance along with the drive and passion of producer, Daniel Bashta, this album invokes a raw, yet reverent response that deconstructs surface level worship. Mixed by GRAMMY award winner, engineer Darrell Thorp, every song is a sermon that invades the heart.
“The vision for this album is that God is raising up preachers from all over the earth – from mothers and doctors to school children and athletes,” she explains. “God has let this gift come out of me, and the more I’ve been obedient to His promptings, the more doors that have opened. It’s been amazing to experience, and I can’t wait to see what else He has in store.”
At the age of 16, Harvest thought she would be a preacher. The more she performed, the more she began seeing music and songwriting as instruments in and of themselves to do what she longed to do – that is, to preach. With her dark, metallic voice set against the soothing sound of strings, Harvest creates simple, haunting melodies that hit the heart and remain there found on songs including “Anchor,” “There Is A Peace,” “Pursuit” and more.
Preachers marks Harvest’s debut with Heritage Music, and the continuation of a fruitful, though unexpected journey.
