“All Around,” the latest single from The Rock Music (DREAM Records) – a collective of singer/songwriters and worship leaders from Salt Lake City’s The Rock Church – is now available.
A press release stated, “Featuring worship leader Steele Croswhite, the joyful anthem celebrates the omnipresence of God and encourages listeners to embrace the beauty he has bestowed through nature, human relationships and the church.”
Penned by Croswhite, along with Randal Topper, Joseph Young and Thomas Scribner, and produced by Nate Pyfer, “All Around” was inspired by Philippians 4:8.
“With so much uncertainty in our world, troubling news, and division that can easily bog us down, it’s so easy to fix our minds on things that are not admirable, not lovely or not excellent,” Croswhite explains of the song’s meaning. “The Philippians verse challenges us to fix our eyes on what is true, honorable, right, pure, lovely and admirable; to think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.”
He adds, “If we stop to consider this, we find God’s amazing love all around us. We recognize his love in creation, in our relationships, in the church, through the grace of Christ, and in the father’s love and the fellowship of the Spirit. His love is truly all around, we need only to stop and realize it.”
For nearly two decades The Rock Music has been dedicated to writing, recording and performing Christ-centered music without compromise. The collective – helmed by singer/songwriter, worship leader and pastor Croswhite – has released 13 full-length recordings and seven EPs. In addition, selections from The Rock Music are showcased on the DREAM Records releases “God's Not Dead: A Light In Darkness” and “Samson,” compilations featuring songs from and inspired by the motion pictures.
A press release stated, “The Rock Music is a ministry of The Rock Church, a suburban Salt Lake City congregation on a mission to share the hope and grace of Christ in Utah.”
Signing his first record deal at the age of 21, Croswhite began his career as the lead vocalist, songwriter and guitarist for the acclaimed rock band Silvercrush. While the group earned Billboard chart success and toured with such artists as Sheryl Crow, Foo Fighters and Maroon 5, Croswhite’s life was falling apart. He drifted from his Christian upbringing, lured by the trappings of fame and reeling from his father’s untimely death. Encouraged by his sister to visit The Rock Church, it was there Croswhite experienced the true grace of Jesus Christ and rededicated his life to the Lord. Today, he serves as a pastor and worship leader at the church.
