Today is the day! Eric has released his first worship album, Whoever Is Wise. It’s a beautiful compilation of covers and original arraignments of hymns and praise songs that have significantly impacted his faith. Inspired by Psalm 107: 43, “Whoever is wise, let him attend to these things and consider the steadfast love of the Lord.”
Its been about 6 months that Eric has been working on this album; writing the arraignments, recording, and creating the album art. He’s been completing this in his free time which shows how passionate he is about music and loving the Lord through his art. These songs offer uplifting themes of adoration, love, perseverance, and hope. He wanted the tracks to sound as though they were being sung in his Father’s house, which is why most of them were recorded in our church. One of the tracks even features all of the members of our church worship team.
I am so proud of Eric and his hard work on this. He has put an incredible amount of time, thought, and effort into making this the best it can be. Something super unique about this record is that Eric has included a simple devotional guide to include with it. This guides the listener through specific Scripture passages that relate with and set up each song. Eric and I had a chance to go through the devotional over our weekend away and we both really enjoyed it. Listening to the hymns and praise songs between passages gave me a chance to think deeper about what I had just read. Furthermore it helped me appreciate how these songs are Scripturally based.

If you’d like to take a listen to the album, you can download it for free at Bandcamp.com, or stream it on Spotify, or purchase it on iTunes or Amazon. Our prayer is that these songs might be a blessing to you in your walk of faith. Thank you for reading!
