JUSTIN JARVIS JOINS JOHN MARK MCMILLAN FOR "ARE WE ALL ANIMALS TOUR" by Hoganson Media on 2014-09-09 11:53:54
For over ten years, Justin Jarvis has overseen and continues to direct the music and creative culture of The Harbour Church in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Lauded by artists like Kim Walker-Smith, John Mark McMillan, Leeland Mooring and Jonathan David Helser, and discovered by Jesus Culture Music, known as one of the most influential youth and young adult movements around the world, Jarvis’s music is now traveling internationally. Jarvis’s first full-length album, Atmospheres (Live), releases Sept. 30 globally at digital and physical retailers everywhere through Fuel Music.
Taking the songs from the new album, which were recorded live with Jesus Culture band, Jarvis will hit the road across 19 Western, Central and Southern US States, joining John Mark McMillan on the “Are We All Animals Tour.” The tour launches Sept. 14 in St. Louis and travels to major markets, including San Francisco, Denver, Dallas, Minneapolis, Kansas City, St. Louis, and more before wrapping up Nov. 23 in Birmingham. See below for all the tour dates, with the latest tour updates available at www.justinjarvis.com.
Prior to the tour and available this week only, Jesus Culture Music is giving away the first single from Atmospheres (Live), “Heaven's Light,” through Noisetrade. The full 10-track album, featuring over 60-minutes of music, is also available for pre-order at iTunes beginning Sept. 16.
With both indie and arena rock sensibilities, this dynamic album, recorded by acclaimed producer Jeremy Edwardson (Kim Walker Smith, Kari Jobe, Michael W. Smith), features songs all written and sung by Jarvis. Jesus Culture band members Chris Quilala (guitars), Jeffrey Kunde (Guitars), Ian McIntosh (keys), Josh Fisher (drums) and Brandon Aaronson (bass) join Jarvis to create a powerful soundscape throughout the album. Unapologetically focused on Jesus, Justin’s unique voice leads the engaged audiences in worship while, at times, drawing comparisons vocally to Chris Martin (Coldplay) with an urgent cry similar to Win Butler (Arcade Fire).
Showcasing subtle and massive arrangements that hint at inspiration from rock greats like Coldplay and The Killers, Atmospheres (Live) speaks to the shifting of atmospheres that takes place in us and through us every day because of the love of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit. "Our mandate is to shift the atmosphere with the love of Jesus in our cities and the nations,” explains Banning Liebscher, Director of Jesus Culture. “As we lift up our voice in worship, the reality of Heaven is released in our midst."
From the soaring title track, "Atmospheres," and the epic instrumentation of the modern hymn, "Heaven's Light," to the intimate reflection of "Born of God," every song at its core is written in and for the local church, inspiring a journey into the fullness of God's heart. "This live album embodies the heart and hunger for God's presence through deep lyrics and passionate expression,” says Kim Walker-Smith, President of Jesus Culture Music.
Marked with a passion for Jesus, Jarvis is a worshiper and songwriter who carries a unique sound born in and for the local church. Be it soaring anthems or intimate reflections, his distinct voice delivers an authenticity that opens the heart, while his music inspires with an edge that is refreshing in modern day worship. His songs are characterized by theological depth that draws inspiration from the love and power of God, carrying the signature of revival. From his family, including his wife Janette and three children, to his music, Justin desires to see this generation impacted in a life-changing way by God's presence.
