Award-winning, inspirational songwriter Nate Brown announces the release of "Your Love," the highly anticipated single from the forthcoming album "Open Heaven." The single was recorded live in Venice, alongside Italy's prestigious Veneta Philharmonic Orchestra, which will be performing this fall with Grammy-nominated artist Andrea Bocelli. "Your Love" captures the wholesome and organic sound fans can expect from "Open Heaven" by Nate Brown & Friends, which will launch this fall.
Sublimely orchestrated, the song is an artistic expression of the overwhelming feeling of God's unconditional love, explains Brown. "I want to remind listeners that 'Love' itself is the greatest commandment from God," he adds, "and His love for us reaches beyond the human imagination. When you've experienced the true love of God it becomes indescribable and undefined. God's love cannot be contained within our human understanding of what love is; we'll never understand why He loves us so much. He just does, and He does so in spite of our many imperfect ways."
Brown is the founder and CEO of Gentle Giant Music Ministries, an international artist management company based in Maryland. He's earned a positive reputation for his music and production throughout Europe, having performed in well-known theaters and churches, as well as making multiple appearances on RAI Television. Brown studied at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, Berklee College of Music and the University of the Arts.
"Your Love" features lead vocals from Christie Dashiell, who entered the public eye as a contestant on NBC's hit show "The Sing-Off" as part of the group Afro-Blue. The Veneta Philharmonic Orchestra is conducted by the renowned Diego Basso. Background vocalists on the single include members of Gentle Giant Music Ministries, regional winners of the Verizon Wireless How Sweet the Sound competition in 2013. "Your Love" was mixed by award-winning engineer Ken Lewis and produced by Stellar Award nominee Christopher Leach.
An experienced and award-winning songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Nate Brown has worked with the likes of Wynton Marsalis, Roy Hargrove and the late Grover Washington, Jr., among many others. As the founder of Gentle Giant Music Ministries, Brown has been at the helm of one of the fastest-emerging Christian/Gospel music companies in the US. Gentle Giant Ministries has embarked on six European tours, and the company's debut album – "Open Heaven" – will be available in fall 2016.
