EDITORS’ NOTES

Reflecting on both his recent marriage and his relationship with God, Matt Brouwer infuses Till the Sunrise with a sense of gratitude and hope. He explores the ties of love and companionship that bind families together while drawing on Scripture to reaffirm his enduring faith. Producer Michael Omartian (Whitney Houston, Rod Stewart, Amy Grant) surrounds Brouwer with sparse, acoustic-centered arrangements, letting the material's eloquence speak for itself. “One in a Million,” “Tonight," and the title tune glide on easy grooves as they celebrate the joys of domestic life. “Someone Else’s Arms" (a cry of loneliness with a classic country feel) and “Thornside” (a moody vignette steeped in Appalachian balladry) add some shadows to the album’s pervasively sunny mood. As on past releases, Brouwer’s treatment of Biblical themes (especially in “Ocean” and “Everlasting”) is subtle yet spiritually resonant. “Outside, Inside” (a meditation on tragedy and healing) lends the album a bittersweet coda. Till the Sunrise celebrates a new chapter in Brouwer’s life.
