Chris August’s The Maker debuts April 7, 2015 to eager anticipation and critical acclaim. This, the third studio album from the Dove Award-winning Male Vocalist of the Year, reveals a deeper side of the artist who swept the Dove Awards following his debut in 2011. A skateboarding accident in 2012 could have claimed his life; instead, it launched a period of personal growth and spiritual maturity that courses through each track on The Maker, which largely came together while Chris was touring with labelmates and friends, Big Daddy Weave, who witnessed first-hand the work God was doing in Chris’ life–work that underscored much of The Maker.
Just a few days before the release of their eagerly anticipated new album and first covers project, Directions Home (Songs We Love, Songs You Know), GRAMMY®-nominated vocal group Point of Grace takes fans inside the creation of their album, debuting exclusively on CountryWeekly.com.
