1977년 생, 미국 Illinois주 Downers Grove 출신으로 1997년부터 활동을 하며 가수보다는 오히려 작곡자로서 다수의 아티스트 앨범에 수록된 여러 좋은 노래들을 통해 더 유명한 편인데요, GMA 도브상에서는 주로 작곡자로서 "Song of the Year"에서 'More' (2005) - 'Only Grace' (2006) - 'Forgiveness' (2013) ; 2016년 Songwriter of the Year 등 여러 차례 후보에 올라 갔으나 아직까지 수상은 못하고 있습니다. * 2005년 [Happy] 앨범으로 "Recorded Music Packaging of the Year"만 수상


"God has spoken to me in a powerful way as I've spent time in the cabin, my place of solitude, to work on this new album, I had a hard time getting through the writing and recording process on this song without choking up - it brings me to tears and into a place of worship. The fact that God still uses me blows me away. There are a lot of times that I feel broken and unqualified for God to use me, but day after day He invites me into the gates and says 'I'm going to use you in a powerful way' because our God is in the business of using broken people and broken things."


올 가을에 발표될 새 앨범에 앞서 싱글이 나왔는데요, 들을 수록 참 멋진 곡입니다.



If grace was a kingdom I stopped at the gate Thinking I don’t deserve to pass through after all the mistakes that I’ve made ; Oh but I heard a whisper As Heaven bent down  Said, "Child, don’t you know that the first will be last and the last get a crown"


Now I’m just a beggar in the presence of a King I wish I could bring so much more ; But if it’s true You use broken things Then here I am Lord, I'm all Yours


'Broken Things' (2017) singles 

Jason Houser, AJ Pruis, Matthew West



The pages of history they tell me it’s true That it’s never the perfect; it’s always the ones with the scars that You use ; It’s the rebels and the prodigals; it’s the humble and the weak All the misfit heroes You chose Tell me there’s hope for sinners like me


Now I’m just a beggar in the presence of a King I wish I could bring so much more ; But if it’s true You use broken things Then here I am Lord, I'm all Yours


Grace is a kingdom With gates open wide There’s a seat at the table just waiting for you So, come on inside
