    All the songs on the record are based on quotes, prayers, scriptures and characters throughout the history of the church that have been a prophetic voice.

    Multi-GRAMMY® nominee and acclaimed songwriter Matt Maher is slated to release his fifth studio album with Essential Records/Provident Label Group, Saints And Sinners. The album’s first single, “Because He Lives (Amen),” is already in the Top 5 at radio, currently sitting at No. 4 on the National Christian Audience Chart and No. 6 on the AC Monitored Chart. The songs for Saints And Sinners organically began to develop as Maher experienced a time of personal transition and went in search of inspiration. “I found myself in a real place of unknowing,” he shares. “So I naturally started gravitating toward writings and quotes from people having experienced the tension between certainty and mystery.”

    Inspired by leaders of faith who left profound marks on Christianity, Saints And Sinners boasts a collection of cuts highlighting influencers such as Martin Luther King and Mother Teresa. “All the songs on the record are based on quotes, prayers, scriptures and characters throughout the history of the church that have been a prophetic voice,” the artist explains. “It’s good to look at their lives in the context of our own, because it gives us permission to ask questions along our journey.”

    About the Artist

    “EVERY SAINT HAS A PAST, AND EVERY SINNER HAS A FUTURE.” -OSCAR WILDE

    Sometimes in order to move forward, you have to look back and remember where you’ve been. It was in that spirit that Matt Maher birthed his latest album, Saints and Sinners (Essential/Sony). The garage-turned-studio behind Maher’s home became a haven of reflection as he tirelessly transformed it into a creative songwriting space. “Every day, I’d go out there and dream a bit and ask, ‘God, what do you want to build here?’” Maher recalls.
