Album Cover
#4. Audrey Assad
Evergreen

Release Date: February 23, 2018
Audrey Assad had her fingerprints on two of the best albums of last year (The Porterís Gate worship project and an epic vocal hook on Propagandaís Crooked), and she continues to put out great album after great album. This indie force-to-be-reckoned-with has forged her own path, and the early songs from Evergreen are great. Mixing a David Gray sonic pallet with a Sarah Mclachlan soulfulness, Assad might have an íalbum of the yearí candidate on her hands, and a great album for the winter months ahead.
        - Alex Caldwell

Audrey Assad is one of the few artists in the worship game that continually pushes her creativity into new territory. There's no doubt that this next release will be good, it's just a matter of what kind of good that we'll be getting that is the question.
        - Mason Haynie

As a fan of fellow and similar musicians Nichole Nordeman, Sara Groves, and Assadís previous work Inheritance, I have big expectations for Audrey Assadís soon-to-release Evergreen. My hope is for thoughtful commentary on life, love, politics, and the Kingdom around simple but catchy piano melodies.
        - Josh Balogh

I donít follow Audrey as closely as I feel I should, but Iím eager to hear new music and see if I finally take the fortunate fall into fandom.
        - Scott Fryberger

Can you beileve it has been four-and-a-half years since we've gotten a full-length original album from Assad? Considering how many EPs, features, hymns, and other creative endeavours we've seen from her, it hardly seems like we've waited for anything at all from our favorite Catholic CCM artist. But that also means she's gonna have a pretty high bar to clear with Evergreen. Here's to hoping!
