The Love In Between, Matt Maher’s new studio project demonstrates the evolution of an inspired artist. This Canadian, and CCLI mainstay, is well known for moving worship anthems including, “Your Grace Is Enough,” “As It Is In Heaven,” “Hold Us Together” and “Christ Is Risen.” While holding strong to his calling as a musical missionary, The Love In Between unveils a side of this new husband and father that delves more deeply into the ideas of suffering, grace, redemption and hope. These concepts are neatly swaddled in a new folk-Americana, or in Matt’s words, a “Blue Collar Gospel” sound introduced by his 2010 hit “Hold Us Together” - featured on Alive Again (9/21/09) - which fuses the best elements of this accomplished musician drawing from years on the road as a touring artist and worship leader.
Matt, a man with striking conviction and the ability to relate that passion and conviction to listeners ranging from the studied theologian to the lay person, has delivered an album that takes church from within the four walls to the handshake between two people. The Love In Between defines Matt as a singer, songwriter and worship leader. It is encouraging, hopeful, authentic; the articulation of who Matt is as a man, husband, father, brother and follower.
