Aaron Keyes’ New Song

June 21, 2011

Atlanta-based songwriter, worship leader Aaron Keyes releases his sophomore album, Dwell, today from Kingsway. The album will be distributed by EMI CMG Distribution in the US and has gained much attention with Worship Leader, CCM, Worship Musician, NewReleaseTuesday.com and many others wowing at this modern collection of 13 songs composed in the battle of the everyday, Dwell was forged in the fires of sacrifice and sharpened by the iron of Scripture. The album follows Keyes’ acclaimed album, Not Guilty Anymore.

Keyes, who is worship pastor at Grace Fellowship Church in Snellville, GA, believes, without reservation, that the Word of God is central to worship, and this is the constant in his music that sets him apart. Pulling from 60 to 70 songs that Keyes “road tested” while leading worship, Dwell producers John Hartley (Matt Redman, Rebecca St. James) and Stu G (Delirious?) helped handpick the best of these anthems that are now gathering wide critical acclaim:

Based on Psalm 91, a prayer of protection, with a bridge from Isaiah 54:17, the new album’s title track, “Dwell,” is one of the defining moments on the record, Keyes says. “Our personal worship, our willingness to abide or dwell in the shelter of the Lord, it’s so connected to God moving on our behalf, moving for us, to the Kingdom of God advancing around us.”

For the last eight years, it’s that waiting room that fuels Keyes’ passion for and approach to worship. It is also one of the reasons why he and his wife, Megan, open their home to disciple young worship leaders for several months out of the year, dedicating their lives to reshaping worship leadership for the next generation.

“We want to shift what worship leading looks like,” he says, “from worship leaders simply leading songs to worship pastors leading people to knowing God better, to resting our hearts in Him, to expressing our hearts to him—physically, instinctively, fully, expressively... not just emotion, passion and excitement, but to declare the promises of God in the Bible with reverence and orthodoxy.”
