Every once in a while something different happens, something that makes you pause, reflect and reassess. Chris McClarney is that "different thing". Unassuming, yet possessing a voice that could stop traffic, Chris McClarney has been blessed with a voice that is so full of life, so full of power and passion that it seems to come from within the listener themselves.
Chris is an underground phenomenon. From iTunes® charts to church movements, many, many people are talking about Chris McClarney these days. That underground swell has been going on for a while, but over recent months things have gone just a little more crazy than usual. Having given birth to the song "Your Love Never Fails", Chris has found himself as songsmith-of-choice for one of the most dynamic mass mobilizations of the day; the Redding, California-based Jesus Culture youth movement. Having adopted this song as the title track of their 2008 album, the army of believers singing of God's constancy in the midst of trials goes larger every day. "Your Love Never Fails" has earned over 1,000,000 views on YouTube alone.
There is no doubt that Chris is a worshipper through and through, one dedicated to drawing the eyes, heart and songs of the church up towards our heavenly Father and this August we will finally see the release of his brand new studio album Defender.
Defender contains 14 songs including two modern renditions of the classic hymns "Blessed Assurance" and "Immortal Invisible".
