Sara Groves Releasing 13th Studio Album 'Abide With Me'

Oct 27 2017

Sara Groves releases her 13th studio album 'Abide With Me' on November 17th. The project follows her critically acclaimed 'Floodplain', and includes songs carefully selected from Groves' personal list of hymns, with each song having provided a source of healing and comfort to the singer/songwriter throughout the years.

Fittingly recorded in a 105 year old church converted into a studio by Groves alongside her bandmates, Groves' latest is both personal and congregational, with songs like “Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus” staying close to the original hymn, while others such as “Oh My Redeemer What a Friend You Are to Me,” and “Fairest Lord Jesus” take on their own creative flair.

"My last album found me on the Floodplain reflecting on the kind provision that comes when I find myself in a place where I cannot rescue myself," says Groves. "Abide With Me is a collection of hymns and songs that were with me on the Floodplain. A highlight for me was re-tracking 'He’s Always Been Faithful' with piano, upright bass and woodwinds. My bandmates and I guesstimate that we have played that song well over 1,000 times, and these days it is loaded with the memories of 20 years of making music."

Sara Groves is a mom, wife, singer/songwriter and recording artist with a passion for justice and a heart of mercy. She has joined forces with International Justice Mission to advocate for victims of human trafficking for the past 12 years. Groves, her husband Troy, and their three children (Kirby, Toby & Ruby) reside in St. Paul, Minn. where they cultivate an artist support community out of a 105 year-old church called Art House North. Abide With Me marks her tenth anticipated release with FairTrade Services.
