Featured Artist: Planetshakers

May 01 2015

Planetshakers Band is passionate about uniting generations worldwide through worship and is known for favorites like “Like A Fire,” “Endless Praise,” “Nothing Is Impossible,” “This Is Our Time” and “The Anthem.” As Australia’s largest youth/young adult Christian movement, Planetshakers’ goal is to see people encounter God, be transformed by His presence and empowered to make a difference in their world. While they tour internationally, the team remains based out of Planetshakers Church, a multi-campus, 12,000-plus member congregation based in Melbourne, Australia that is pastored by husband and wife, Russell and Sam Evans.

In addition to the music and message, Planetshakers Church is involved in numerous community and charitable causes including prison ministry, school programs, refugee outreach, disaster relief and welfare assistance. It also partners with World Vision to assist in urgent humanitarian crises around the world, and runs Planetshakers College in Melbourne, which equips local and international students to impact their world for Christ.

The worship team from Planetshakers Church, one of Australia’s fastest growing churches in history, is set to release Outback Worship Sessions globally through Integrity Music May 12, 2015.

Outback Worship SessionsWhat started as a project to re-craft Planetshakers’ most-loved worship anthems into a form accessible to worship teams representing the wider church body has since grown into a studio recording that is, as Aristotle might say, “greater than the sum of its parts.”

For the new album, Planetshakers tapped into the expertise of Grammy Award-winning, four-time Gospel Music Association Dove Award-winning “Producer of the Year,” Ed Cash. Taking Outback Worship Sessions under his wing, and with church worship teams in mind, Cash gave a new, intimate ‘voice’ to Planetshakers’ best-loved anthems. He not only brought out the best in the Planetshakers team, but also wrote and produced three brand new songs on the 11-track album.

"The moment I began co-writing with Bj over Skype, I knew that Heaven was going to fall heavy on this project,” says Cash. “It became increasingly clear that the Planetshakers family has habitually drawn near to God, and in His matchless covenant fashion, He has drawn near to them!"
