NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Acclaimed Canadian singer/songwriter Matt Brouwer received two Covenant Awards—including Fan Choice Artist of the Year—at the 2009 Covenant Awards held Friday in Calgary, Alberta. The Awards were presented during GMA Canada’s Music Week.
"To receive the Fan Choice Artist of the Year Award is an amazing honor,” Brouwer said. “There are days when, as musicians, we wonder if anything we are doing is reaching people at all. To have my friends and fans rally to vote in this way is so cool and I am deeply grateful for the show of support."
Brouwer also received the Covenant Award for Folk/Roots Song of the Year for “The Other Side.” With appearances by Vince Gill and Amy Grant, “The Other Side” is featured on Brouwer’s latest studio recording, Where’s Our Revolution.
"Being recognized for your work is always an encouragement, but winning in these two categories both held special significance for me,” said Brouwer. “‘The Other Side’ is a song I wrote in tribute for my older sister Sandra who passed away a few years ago. In attempting to honor her life, and her impact on me as a person and musician, I could never have dreamed that the song would be recorded with Vince Gill and Amy Grant (one of my sister's heroes), or that it would be honored with a Covenant Award. It's a reminder in my family of the legacy Sandra left behind and another chance to honor her memory."
Where’s Our Revolution, Brouwer’s third studio recording, was produced by GRAMMY Award winner Michael Omartian. Re-released in August as a Deluxe Edition by Universal Music Christian Group/Fontana, the recording features 12 new songs written or co-written by Brouwer. The project includes the #1 singles “Beautiful Now” and “Come Back Around”; “I Shall Believe” and other bonus selections; as well as exclusive video content, including a free download of the “I Shall Believe” video.
Now residing in Houston, Brouwer debuted on Reunion Records and scored a hit with the single “Water.” His recent work has included more radio success with the singles “I Shall Believe,” “Surrender” and “Father I Adore You.” In addition to national and international touring, Brouwer is an Artist in Residence at Woodlands United Methodist Church in Houston.
