Matthew West teams up with fellow artist David Leonard to remind us of the power of God’s love, and that through him all things are possible, in the moving new visual for “Maker.” Surrounded by a sheet-draped room, the simplified backdrop allows for lyric and performance by both West and Leonard to be the visual’s focus. Penned by West, Leonard, and AJ Prius, the track comes from West’s recently released double album, MY STORY YOUR GLORY that the “Christian music star” (FoxNews) released last month. The album’s title track and current single is climbing the Top 10 on both the Billboard Christian Airplay Chart at number 7 and number 6 on the Mediabase Christian Airplay Chart. The songwriter also holds the number 1 spot on the Billboard Christian Airplay chart for 3 weeks and counting with Micah Tyler’s “I See Grace” which West co-wrote.
“I’ve been overwhelmed by the response to the new album, and it feels like we are just getting started,” shares West. “Our team had a vision to create many different types of content around the songs and the messages of My Story Your Glory, and I’m excited to share this new video with the world for a special song I got to create with my friend David Leonard. The story of this song is the story of a God who makes all things possible. It’s about perspective, and how I might see an impossible situation but God sees the breakthrough coming. For anyone staring down an impossible situation, I hope this song and video remind you that nothing is impossible with God.”
The five-time Grammy nominated artist is poised and ready for an impressive 2023 after a monumental 2022 – his prior single “Me On Your Mind” spent 6 weeks atop the Mediabase Christian Airplay chart and graced the top the Billboard Christian Airplay Chart for 5 weeks. The track was his fifth consecutive chart-topper and marked West’s 25th number one song combined as an artist and songwriter – now up to 28. He was named NSAI’s Songwriter-Artist of the Year following the footsteps of artists including Luke Combs, Luke Bryan, and Taylor Swift to name a few. West is notably the first predominantly Christian artist to win the award in over 20 years. He released his sixth book “The God Who Stays,” an engaging and thoughtful exploration, balanced with West’s trademark wit and humor, that helps us reconnect to the Biblical truth that God is with us. In his most personal book to date, West was inspired by the dramatic events of 2020 to go on a spiritual journey of rediscovery and revival inspired by the words of his hit song “The God Who Stays.” The proven storyteller finished out the year with a partnership with Great American Family to highlight “Come Home For Christmas” on their channel all holiday season and a high profile appearance of the carol on The Kelly Clarkson Show – watch here.
