Creating Songs of Heaven & Earth In God’s Perfect Timing
Integrity Music announces the July 28 global release of the live recording Songs Of Heaven & Earth: Volume 1 from Tennessee-based songwriter and worship leader Corey Voss.
Corey, the Worship & Creative Arts Pastor for Gateway Church in Shelbyville, has written songs recorded by Selah (“I Got Saved”), Paul Baloche (“Psalm 92” / “We Come To You, Jesus”), Jaci Velasquez (“Praise The King”) and Dustin Smith (“How Great” / “Consume Us”) among others.
For Songs Of Heaven & Earth, Corey recorded at Gateway, working with producer Kyle Lee (Aaron Shust/Bryan & Katie Torwalt). The five-track EP features the song "Canyons," which he co-wrote with Dove Award winner Krissy Nordhoff, “Don’t Ever Let Me Go,” a co-write with Dove Award winner Jennie Lee Riddle and “The King Is Here” a co-write with Rhyan Shirley.
The project is rounded out with songs from fellow Integrity writers: “As It Is In Heaven,” penned by Alisa Turner and Dove Award winner Michael Farren, and “God Who Moves The Mountains,” penned by Dustin Smith, Richie Fike and David Leonard (All Sons & Daughters).
As one might expect from the title, Songs Of Heaven & Earth reflects aspects of both the Creator and His creation. But, Corey, an avid hiker who draws inspiration and lyrical imagery from nature, said the story goes even deeper.
“Years ago, a friend shared a prophetic word that God had given her for me,” he explains. “She said that the Lord had called me to ‘execute something from Heaven that would be new in the earth.’ That has stayed in my heart all these years. So, when my friend and co-writer Rhyan Shirley was praying for me and said, ‘you should call your next project Songs Of Heaven & Earth,’ I realized that we had come full circle. It just seemed the perfect title and God’s perfect timing.”
