Celebrated acoustic duo Shane & Shane releases its seventh career studio project, Everything Is Different
, Nov. 3, 2009. The record’s debut radio single, “My Hope Is Built,” will vie for adds at Christian Adult Contemporary radio beginning Nov. 6.
With contributions by star producers Peter Kipley (Mercy Me, Kutless) and Jason Hoard (Fee) as well as audio engineering legend Steve Churchyard (The Eagles, INXS, Kelly Clarkson), Everything Is Different
was recorded both in San Diego and Dallas. Heavily influenced by Shane & Shane’s role as worship leaders at their home church in Red Oak, Texas, the album’s content is Scripture-focused, while its style and sound are worshipful in nature.
Also unique to Everything Is Different
, Shane & Shane recorded most of the entire album live, tracking all of the basic instrumentation simultaneously. “We set up some mics on the acoustic guitars and the drums and just played,” describes Shane Everett. “We did very little editing, and we loved not just the process but the feel of the record.” The duo also engineered the bulk of the project at their own Spaceway Studios.
The lead single from Everything Is Different
, “My Hope Is Built,” was originally written and recorded for a CD the twosome is producing and engineering for its church. The song, a modern take on a classic hymn, will be heard by national audiences via Christian radio starting Nov. 6.
“In essence the record has our hands all over it and is truly an expression of our heart,” says Shane Everett. “Our hope is that people are blessed by our efforts and that the spirit of the Lord moves hearts to love Him more. If that happens, it is a miracle--because when lives are changed by Jesus, everything is different.”
Shane Everett and Shane Barnard formed the duo, Shane & Shane, after meeting at Central Baptist Church in College Station, Texas in the late 90’s. In December 2001, Shane & Shane signed with Inpop Records, home to such notable acts as newsboys, Superchick, Mat Kearney and others. Since then, the acoustic-guitar wielding pair has become a college-circuit favorite with six label releases to its credit, and countless hours logged on the road, including tours alongside Bethany Dillon, David Crowder Band and Robbie Seay Band, among others. In total, the band’s career sales exceed nearly half a million units. For more information on Shane & Shane visit: www.shaneandshane.com
