Morning Rises, Morning Rises, Aaron Shust’s second album for Centricity Music, is scheduled to be released July 16, 2013, with God of Brilliant Lights, the first single from the project, going for adds at radio on April 26th.
Acclaimed producer, Ed Cash, helped Shust deliver another very strong and focused project, delivering worship songs that glorify and lift up the name of Christ. The album marks the first time that Shust has used his touring band as the studio musicians, translating into performances that audiences will hear at his concerts across the country. The project is very uplifting, while chronicling some of the tough challenges Shust experienced over the last few months.
After experiencing the medical tribulations of his second son, Nicky, last year, Shust once again faced life-threatening medical situations with his son, Michael, who was born in January of this year. Facing a heart surgery shortly after he was born, being diagnosed with Down Syndrome, a second surgery for hearing issues and ongoing health issues, the experiences haven’t defeated Shust but instead renewed his passion for Christ.
Shust exploded onto the Christian music scene in 2005 with his first album, Anything Worth Saying, which led to the artist signing with Brash Records. The second single from the project, My Savior, My God, started generating airplay on its own and rose to #19 on the Christian Radio & Records chart before being released to radio. Once released, it shot to #1 on six charts by April of 2006. At the GMA Awards in 2007, Shust was honored with three Dove Awards for Song of the Year (“My Savior, My God”), Songwriter of the Year, and New Artist of the Year. Shust’s second studio album, Whispered And Shouted, released in June 2007 and in 2009, Shust released his third and final CD for Brash Records, Take Over. The project included the Christian radio hit, To God Alone. Shust signed with Centricity Music in January 2011 and released his hit-making debut project, This Is What We Believe in August 2011.
