I first came across Laura Story when the song Indescribable was released. She was the songwriter that penned the song. After Great God Who Saves, Blessings, and God of Every Story, Laura is releasing her seventh solo album: Open Hands.
There were three musical themes I noticed in this new album. The first part contains catchy and driving pop/rock songs. The second part was an ode to the great hymn: A Thousand Tongues To Sing. Finally, the third part contains slower and more reflective songs.
From worship songs written to be sung for entire congregations to songs that can be led in a small group setting to songs for an individual, this album has something for everyone.
About Laura Story
GRAMMY® award winning artist, speaker, songwriter, author and worship leader Laura Story has a gift for penning songs that connect with people all around the world. Among her successes as a solo artist with her smash hits “Mighty to Save” and “Blessings,” Laura has also penned hit songs for other renowned artists including Chris Tomlin’s “Indescribable.” Her solo artist music debut in 2008 with Great God Who Saves led to four Dove nominations and the award for “Inspirational Album of the Year.” In 2011, Laura released her sophomore project Blessings. The album and the emotionally powerful title was inspired by her real life trials and adversities, primarily her husband Martin’s diagnosis of a brain tumor. The album resonated with a huge audience and led to whirlwind career highlights for Laura. She recently released a new book and bible study curriculum *When God Doesn’t Fix It: Lessons You Never Wanted to Learn, Truths You Can’t Live Without. She has a graduate degree from Covenant Theological Seminary and has served as a worship leader at Perimeter Church in Atlanta since 2005, but her greatest joy is being a wife to Martin and the mother to Ben, Griffin and Josie.
