Aaron Senseman Releases Solo CD 'More Than Anything'

Aaron Senseman's new album of original worship music, More Than Anything, is set for release next week. The record catalogues some of his best original worship songs and modern hymn arrangements, including a remake of the Senseman-penned Caedmon's Call favorite, "Let Me Be."

Produced by Jonathan and Joel Camey (Cindy Cruse, Lauren James), More Than Anything is a versatile offering with cuts ranging from the energized pop-rock of the title track, to the subtle hints of folk and jazz found in Senseman's arrangement of the hymn classic "Just as I Am" and the world music influence heard on the redemptive "At His Feet."

Josh Moore (Caedmon's Call, Bethany Dillon) mixed the record and Cliff Young, Derek Webb and Garett Buell (Caedmon's Call) all make appearances as well as Gabe Scott (Bebo Norman, Andrew Peterson) and Lauren James.

Senseman's past work has garnered a notable list of industry nods. Among those are a number one radio single ("Before There was Time"), ASCAP Christian Music award and a Dove award, but he had this to say of his success, "I try not to lose sight of why I started writing songs like these. I lead church music, and these songs are expressions of what God is doing in my heart or in my pastor's or in my church community. That's the vital thing, connecting with my congregation on a level that shows I'm invested in them, giving them a new song to sing that says something good and true about who God is, what he's done and what he's doing in our midst. Whatever happens after that I can take or leave."

Senseman has spent the past ten years as a worship leader in congregations throughout the Houston area and elsewhere. He has toured nationally with Bebo Norman as well as Caedmon's Call, and he's written dozens of songs. Apart from attending one of his worship services there just wasn't a way to hear most of them, until now.

More Than Anything is available through AaronSenseman.com or for download at Digstation and will be on iTunes and CD Baby later this month. For those in the Houston area, a free release concert is being held this Friday, November 7th at 7pm, hosted by Crosspoint Church in Bellaire where Senseman serves as the Contemporary Worship Pastor and Minister to Single Adults, 4601 Bellaire Blvd, TX 77401.
