Multiple Grammy-nominated, Dove Award winning Sanctus Real lead vocalist Matt Hammitt is releasing his first solo album, Every Falling Tear on September 13th. Organically sparked by the rich joy and pain of life over the last year that strengthened Hammitts faith and solidified his resolve to lead his family well, these new songs are his most deeply personal to date.
Encouraged by his Sanctus Real band mates to release these tracks and to share his story through the songs that are meant to provide hope for people that are in crisis, Hammitts journey to t Every Falling Tear started with the current, critically acclaimed and best-selling Sanctus Real album, Pieces of a Real Heart. With songs like Redeemer, Keep My Heart Alive, Dear Heart, and Lead Me, the whole album become a prophetic glimpse into what the Hammitts were about to go through, and proved to a be a source of hope as Matt and his wife, Sarah, take care of Bowen, small victorious one, who was born Sept. 9, 2010 and has now gone through two heart surgeries, an infection and other complications since being born.
Born out of the heart of a father, wrestling with his pain, but buoyed by his faith and love for his family, Matts main impetus for writing the songs on Every Falling Tear was to play them at Bowens bedside in the hospital, with the hope that they would be a source of comfort for his family, as well as a reminder of Gods faithfulness in the midst of their uncertainty.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Every Falling Tear and its singles will go to benefit the Whole Hearts Foundation, a new foundation Hammitt has set up to help families going through similar challenges as himself.
