Christian Music Legend John Michael Talbot Announces New Album The Inner Room
NEW YORK, Sept. 7, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ -- GRAMMY / Dove award winning, multi-Platinum selling Contemporary Christian Music legend John Michael Talbot announces his new music project, The Inner Room, releasing September 23.
A HIGHER PURPOSE
"The Inner Room," Talbot's highly anticipated 55th career recording, is a music project with a higher purpose.
Talbot shares, "The world today is chaotic and unstable, many people are frightened, insecure, discouraged, and even angry about the future. This recording is a call to go to 'The Inner Room' with Jesus to find healing, hope and revival - and with these, then, to go forward in Christ believing that 'All Things Are Possible With God!'"
Talbot continues, "The heart of the project is Jesus' Sermon on the Mount - the teaching core of the New Testament where Jesus shows that His way is quite different from the way of the world. I also used some of my favorite Psalms, and one devotional text from a traditional prayer, the Act of Contrition. The songs take us on a journey beginning with the Sermon on the Mount, to Calvary and the Empty Tomb, to the House of God. Though the Name of Jesus is only mentioned once, he is present everywhere."
"The Inner Room" features ten classic Talbot compositions integrating Middle Eastern sounds, Americana Roots music and contemporary styles masterfully orchestrated by long time Talbot arranger and producer Phil Perkins and Jim Gray (whose credits include Josh Groban, Amy Grant, Casting Crowns, and more). Talbot was joined in the studio by three legendary figures: Multi-Grammy Award winner and Bluegrass Music legend Ricky Skaggs (Mandolin, Fiddle), Multi-Dove Award winning guitarist Phil Keaggy and mixdown consultant Bill Halverson, whose credits include Producer / Engineer for Crosby, Still & Nash, and Eric Clapton among countless others).
"The Inner Room" releases on September 23, 2016. More information, including personal song descriptions from Talbot and sound samples are available today at www.JohnMichaelTalbot.com/TheInnerRoom.
