October 20, 2023 – Nashville, TN Multi-artist community Anchor Hymns introduces "The Beauty of The Heart of Christ," a brand-new EP that they describe as "simple songs that tell of God’s nature and that can be passed down through generations."

The new project is inspired by the collective’s love for the hymnal tradition and their passion to reignite fresh songs in line with this rich Church heritage. It features six songs that are all meditations on how Christ compels us to love him by loving one another. Recorded live in one take as friends gathered around a piano and an acoustic guitar, the project sought to incorporate an element of "call-and-response" at its core. A detail that is meant to encourage listeners to actively participate in singing, and to do so particularly in community.

"It’s a beautiful river of friendship and melody, winding down the hill from the wellspring of Scripture," said Andrew Osenga, founder of Anchor Hymns.

"The Beauty of The Heart of Christ" is rooted in 1 John 3:16, "This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us […]," encouraging the Church towards a response of mercy and generous living out of the abundance of God’s love.

Anchor Hymns is a multigenerational collective of artists creating new songs following the rich hymnal tradition of the Church. Drawing from Neo Soul, Indie Rock, Brooklyn Fusion, (Blues, Jazz, RnB, Soul), their songs are unafraid to tackle the sounds of suffering and grief, as well as joy and celebration. Anchor Hymns is made of Paul Baloche, Leslie Jordan, Taylor Leonhardt, Jasmine Mullen, Dee Wilson, Antoine Bradford, Sarah Kroger, Jess Ray, Tim Timmons, Garrett Tyler, Lucy Grimble, Dwan Hill, Sandra McCracken, Chaunda Jefferson, Brian Eichelberger, Ricky Vazquez, Brent Milligan, and Andrew Osenga.
