PORTLAND, Ore., May 2, 2013 – Debuting at #12 on the iTunes Christian/Gospel Charts, Make Your Home In Me, from spiritandsong.com musician, Ben Walther is now available. Backed by Christ-centered lyrics and edgy yet inviting vocals, this 7-track CD showcases one of Ben’s most prominent pillars of ministry: The beauty of faith is found in simplicity.

“Just one of the exciting things about Ben and this record is the place his songwriting is coming from,” says Robert Feduccia, General Manager of spiritandsong.com. “There’s a kind of purity from a committed prayer life and real encounters with the simple Christ that shines through in his music—it’s alluring and speaks to each of us that are looking to find a home in the Lord.”

With the title-track-single already reaching the top 5 on Christian Radio Weekly’s (CRW) charts, its clear that contemporary worship music listeners, all over the U.S. have embraced and are eager to share in Ben’s unique perspective and blended acoustic style.

Make Your Home In Me is one of those songs you will want to consume over and over again…musically it is catchy and beautiful and prayerfully it is powerful and humble.”

–Will H., iTunes reviewer

Using electric guitars and piano to round out a modern worship sound, the CD is perfect for personal listening or group events. However, the wide variety of theologically sound songs like, “The Wonders of Your Love”—inspired by Pentecost—make this album ideal for Liturgical celebrations.

Make Your Home In Me bridges the gap between form and function. The songs serve a definite Liturgical and missioning purpose while encompassing the marks of real artistry: truth, beauty and goodness” explains Feduccia.

Deacon Pedro Guevara-Mann, producer of the Salt + Light radio program says, “it’s refreshing to hear someone who is creating excellent music that can be used both in Liturgy as well as for worship. Ben Walther—and this album—are great gifts to our church.”

Listeners can purchase the digital version Make Your Home In Me on iTunes, Amazon or at www.spiritandsong.com. The extended hard-copy version, featuring bonus materials including videos and links to chord sheets is also available today.
