Hymns & Inspiration
Andrew Farstar, Pop & Smooth Jazz singer and songwriter, who is best known for his song “I Don’t Want to Lose Your Love” releases his new album “Hymns & Inspiration”, this Spring just in time for Easter.
So why a hymns album? “I want to connect with the Christian audience out there. As a Christian, I grew up with these songs…it is just natural for me to explore this music and to interpret these classic numbers” Andrew says.
“I love the Old English words in hymns. They sound elegant and poetic to me. Some of these songs have also given me peace and comfort in difficult times and I hope these songs will also do the same for my listeners. Life can be painful and full of suffering, but let these songs remind us about God’s love and grace, which will guide us through it all…” Andrew continues.
In this album, Andrew showcases his ability as a music producer, singer and songwriter. Singing from Pop to Classical style, his smooth voice flows quite naturally throughout the album, which also contains a few of his own compositions.
“I always put my heart and soul into my music projects” Andrew explains. “In this album I just felt the need to be in both Pop style and Classical style and I adjust the way I sing them according to the demands of the music”
More than a year in the making, this album shines a fresh perspective with new interpretations of old favourites. Christian listeners will be quite familiar with some of the pieces in the album such as: “It Is Well With My soul”, “Abide With Me” and “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms”. “Hymns & Inspiration” is available now in both digital and CD format.
