I’ve been listening to a lot of Matt Maher lately. The catchy melodies and faith-filled truths are a great combination. They strike a chord with others too, since he won “Artist of the Year” at the United Catholic Music and Video Association’s Unity Awards 2010. (He also took top prize for “Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year” for “Alive Again” and “Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year” for his “Alive Again” album.)
Haven’t heard Maher before? Danielle Bean highlighted a video of his “Litany of the Saints” in a recent post.
(For Maher’s thoughts on songwriting, see this article of mine.)
