I have some great give-aways today. Today’s BIG give-aways include some cool stuff from some friends of mine, christian artists Shane and Shane. If you are not aware of their music, you should be, these guys are the real deal. We recently hung out and I just love these guys genuine hearts and passion to share their gospel and impact the community.
Shane and Shane has sold over a half a million records and now they have a new project which is their first studio release in two years, The One You Need. Available Oct. 4, the project’s debut single and title track is quickly becoming a hit. As a matter of fact just yesterday, on my way to an client appointment, I had to sit in the car and finish listening to “The One You Need” before on The Message satellite radio station before going into the meeting.
After a brief hiatus from recording, Shane Barnard and Shane Everett have returned to the studio with two years worth of new material, all self-written and self-produced. The duo, who has been playing together for 13 years, has joined efforts with Fair Trade Services, home to top artists including The Afters, MercyMe, and Derek Webb, for this new album.
The Shanes, now both married with children, created this latest record through the lens of fatherhood and community. In fact, Barnard penned the title track—a poignant letter from daddy to daughter—a week before his daughter Lucy was born. Having also recently assumed the role of worship pastors at their local church, The One You Need additionally contains songs intended to minister to those hurting around them.
Although it doesn’t release until October 4th, I already have the new album in my iTunes (I got the hook up… keep reading, you can also get the hook up). It’s an awesome project that really compliments the Shane’s unique style and unique sound. Some of my personal favorites include: Grace Is Sufficient, Your Love, Praise Him, Miracle and the title track “The One You Need” which is featured in the above video. As a parent it will break your heart and make you re-focus at the same time.
