Songs for the Valley is excited to announce that we are hosting an evening of music with beloved Nashville recording artist and singer-songwriter Jason Gray. The concert will be on Friday, February 16 at Horizon Christian Fellowship in Harrisonburg, VA.
About Jason Gray:
Since his 2007 nationwide label debut, All the Lovely Losers, Gray has established himself as a true songwriter’s songwriter. The beloved Centricity Music recording artist has garnered multiple ASCAP Performance Awards for popular songs like “Remind Me Who I Am” and “Sparrows” and summited the radio charts with hits like his first No. 1 AC standard, “With Every Act of Love,” and chart-topping Inspo single “Nothing Is Wasted.” Throughout his celebrated tenure, Gray has shared the stage with genre leaders like Michael W. Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman, Third Day, TobyMac, Lauren Daigle and others, in addition to headlining tours of his own. Moreover, he’s the host of the popular Acoustic Storytime, a monthly writers-round radio show recorded at The Well Coffeehouse in Brentwood, Tenn., for SiriusXM The Message that highlights stories and songs from both well-known Christian acts and newcomers alike.
Jason’s New Album:
When Jason Gray sets out to craft an album, more often than not, he holds an image in his mind that helps guide the songs. For his latest full-length endeavor, Land of the Living, the critically acclaimed singer/songwriter says he envisioned Ray Charles standing on a stage, arms wide open. “I thought if I wrote with that spirit, of knowing your audience so well that you know how to love them, I could speak their language. I could break into their world and speak to them right where they are,” Gray asserts. “It could be more about loving them than about my own self-expression.
On Land of the Living, Gray is less of a host and more of a participant in the stories he’s telling. Rather than leading listeners on a journey revolving around a central theme like he did with 2020’s Order Disorder Reorder, this album serves up a batch of pop-friendly, radio-ready contenders primed for conversation.
“Concept albums tend to ask something of the listener,” he says in regards to Land of the Living’s predecessor. “This record is a little bit more, ‘Thank you for your attention. That was the meat. Let’s have a little dessert.’”
This cherry-on-top addition to his catalog is full of meaningful songs marked by Gray’s remarkable ability to plumb the depths of the human experience — all within the confines of a three-minute pop song.
