Black River Christian artist/songwriter Hannah Kerr announced the Sept. 13 release of her upcoming EP, “Listen More,” while also releasing "Ordinary," a featured track on the project.

Kerr is set to hit the road this fall on Jordan Feliz's “The Faith Tour,” which kicks off Sept. 12.

The project, with all six-songs co-written by Kerr, has a personal meaning behind each song.

“Each song is kind of a window into a different area of my heart or my life," Kerr said. “We all are complex people. I’m not just ‘confident Hannah’ and I’m not just ‘insecure Hannah,’ but both of those parts of me are coming into this project, and I think that’s exactly how God made me to be.” 

With a new confidence in her voice as a result of challenges that she has faced over the past few years, Kerr was forced to assume a new posture when she wrote this album. While her debut album, “Overflow,” came from a place of letting God pour into her, and her heart overflowing in worship, “Listen More” has come from a quieter place.

She explained, “I’m going just sit here for a minute and let God speak to me, and then I’m going to speak from that place of listening, rather than just speaking.”

Kerr said she is excited to share some of her new songs live when she joins “The Faith Tour” with special guests I AM THEY. The tour kicks off in Cleburne, Texas, on Sept. 12. For all of the tour dates, visit HannahKerrMusic.com.

While she has been an artist and songwriter over the past four years, Kerr was also a student at Belmont University. This past spring, she received a degree in Christian leadership. 

“I feel like God really grew me so much as a human being, not just as an artist,” Kerr said. “I understood more about him, I understood more about myself, and went deeper into my faith in a way that I hadn’t before. I feel like I know what I want to sound like, who I am as an artist, and I’m excited to share that with people."

Just last month, Kerr debuted a new arrangement and music video for her Top 20 radio single "Split The Sea." She partnered with award-winning composer David Hamilton (Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban). Watch the video here.

"Split The Sea" has earned more than 4 million streams while Kerr’s music has received more than 45 million total streams.
