ANDREW GREER PRODUCES BEST-SELLING PARABLE RECORDING by Turning Point Media on 2015-01-29 11:38:07
Nashville, Tenn. — All is Calm, All is Bright: Songs of Christmas (Parable/Lucid Artists), a multi-artist compilation featuring some of the top names in Christian music, recently spent six consecutive weeks atop Parable Christian Stores National Retail chart. The chain’s best-selling 2014 holiday recording and exclusive release, the album was produced and arranged by Dove Award-nominated singer/songwriter Andrew Greer, marking his second #1 selling set for the retailer.
Showcasing a diversity of acclaimed artists, All is Calm, All is Bright includes classic and original selections from such names as GRAMMY®-nominated singer/songwriter Cindy Morgan, American Idol’s Melinda Doolittle, Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter Ginny Owens; pop/R&B duo Seth & Nirva; and Nic Gonzales of Dove Award-winning Latin/pop band Salvador.
The project is highlighted by Greer’s stirring new arrangement of “Ave Maria,” a duet with iconic GRAMMY® Award-winner Sandi Patty; multi-platinum vocalist Jaci Velasquez’s recording of the Greer co-penned ballad “Heartbeat Of A Baby,” which garnered network-wide airplay on FISH radio stations; and R&B legend Montell Jordan’s signature take on the beloved carol, “The First Noel.”
All is Calm, All is Bright is the follow-up to Greer's Parable-exclusive production debut, 2013's All Things Bright & Beautiful: Hymns for the Seasons, which topped Nielsen Christian SoundScan’s Instrumental chart for 25 weeks and earned a GMA Dove Award nomination for Instrumental Album of the Year.
The official music video for Greer and Patty’s “Ave Maria” (http://goo.gl/rmhSyW)—also from his critically-acclaimed 2013 recording, Angel Band: The Christmas Sessions—premiered last month on UP TV. In addition, he presented selections from both Christmas recordings during his annual “Angel Band Christmas Tour,” which featured Greer's frequent collaborator Cindy Morgan and hit such markets as Chicago, Dallas, and Nashville, Tennessee.
A lauded singer/songwriter, producer/arranger and acclaimed writer, Andrew Greer's popular Angel Band recordings collectively feature collaborations with some of the top names in bluegrass, Gospel and Christian music. He is the creator of the innovative "Hymns For Hunger" Tour, along with Cindy Morgan, which helps raise awareness and resources for hunger relief organizations around the country. Also a sought-after writer, Greer contributes to a variety of publications and pens the Gospel Music Association’s monthly “Full Circle” column, conversations with a diversity of Christian music history makers past and present. His first book is slated for release this spring from Thomas Nelson.
