Label: Centricity Music (CEY)
This release by Aaron Shust was deeply colored by his two-year-old son Nicky's illness and surprise healing -- something that impacted his faith and songwriting. Helmed by Ed Cash, whose production credits include Chris Tomlin, Leeland and Chris August, This Is What We Believe is deceptively simple. Listen again and you'll find a poetic, multi-textured project that only seems effortless. The songs are permeated not just by what Shust believes, but by who he is. It's thoughtful music for anyone who realizes that living itself is an act of faith. Don't miss "My Hope Is In You."
