Nov. 20, 2009…Nashville, TN…INO Records’ critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Phil Wickham’s latest record Heaven and Earth (November 17) is already receiving much praise with among others naming it one of the top albums of 2009:

“Wickham is moving in a fascinating direction with his sound, and with this album he seems to be testing the waters a bit. It makes the prospect of future material that much more enticing. But until then, we have this fine album—one of 2009's best—to keep us company.”

“This is definitely Phil Wickham’s best overall album and one of my top 10 albums of 2009. These melodies are off the charts and any test audience will have a hard time not giving these songs 5 star ratings. This is a 5 star album.”

“Wickham pulls off an excellent hybrid of interesting lyrics, great vocals and fantastic music… Heaven And Earth is easily one of the finest worship projects of the year.”

In addition to the rave reviews, radio stations across the U.S. agree that Wickham’s album is something to talk about:

“The first time I listened to Phil's single ‘Safe’, I was amazed over how the message connected and really appreciate its relevance to all that is going on in the world these days,” says WAY-FM Network Program Director, Tate Luck. “The sound is fresh and Bart Millard's participation is a great touch!”

Wickham’s current single “Safe” features MercyMe’s frontman Bart Millard. While only out 8 weeks, the single has already made it into the top 20 on Billboard’s Christian AC and Soft AC/Inspirational charts. Currently there are already 75 reporting stations that have added "Safe."

Heaven And Earth has already enjoyed early success on the iTunes ® music charts. The album claimed the No. 2 spot on the Christian/Gospel album chart on iTunes ® while “Safe” topped the Christian/Gospel singles chart at No. 1.

Phil Wickham is at his core a humble and sincere artist who writes songs and worships God using the medium of music. It is with that brush that he paints images of a loving and creative God across the canvases of listeners’ hearts and minds. The evidence of this gift was apparent on Wickham’s debut INO Records release, his sophomore album Cannons and his LIVE Singalong digital release, he continues to prove this on his third studio album Heaven and Earth, which releases November 17.

Heaven and Earth is the follow-up release to the critically acclaimed album Cannons, which debuted with more than 40 percent of album sales in digital and the album remained in the Top 10 on iTunes Christian album chart for several weeks peaking at No.3.
