New song and title track, ‘Hidden Here,’ available now
Worship leader and songwriter Tiffany Hudson will release her solo debut album, “Hidden Here,” on July 21. Celebrating the new project, Hudson has released the title track Friday, along with a music video for “Hidden Here.” Listen here and watch the music video below.
As an award-winning songwriter (“Graves Into Gardens,” “Wait On You,” “Never Lost,” among others), a member of the Grammy Award-winning group Elevation Worship, and a worship leader at Elevation Church, Hudson didn’t dream of having a solo artist career. It wasn’t until she felt an invitation from the Lord in early 2022 that she even considered releasing her own songs.
“After a season of what felt like a creative drought, I sat down at my piano and felt the Lord begin to download songs and themes that felt very important to him,” Hudson explained. “This began a journey of sitting with him, writing, co-writing, and desiring to write on the things he had placed in my heart. I pray that these different themes and sonic treatments would ultimately lead the listener to the true treasure at the end of all this: Jesus.”
“Hidden Here” will be released on Elevation Worship Records (home to Elevation Worship and ELEVATION RHYTHM). This project highlights a personal and devotional style with the various sonic elements weaved throughout the album. The title track draws on poppy musical elements and inspiration from the scripture from Psalms 91 encouraging us to remain hidden in Christ.
Hudson said, “ ‘Hidden Here" deals with the tension we face in desiring to be seen and known by others. I often think of the secret place when referring to hiddenness. The time with God that no one else sees is often the most sacred and holy. There is such a priceless value in remaining under the shadow of the Almighty. I pray it encourages the listeners to remain hidden in him and find their true reward in him. We don't find our reward in external things like opportunity or acknowledgment, but we find, in the hidden place, that Jesus himself is our reward.”
Hudson’s solo debut also features special guest appearances from worship leader Steffany Gretzinger, Mitch Wong and Joe L Barnes. The project is produced by Josh Holiday, Bubele Booi and Jason Ingram.

More About Tiffany Hudson
Tiffany Hudson grew up in the church as a pastor’s kid, always knowing she wanted to be in ministry. It was also at her parent's church where she started honing in on her worship-leading skills, learning to play multiple instruments and write songs. As a songwriter, any time Tiffany gets the opportunity to write is, as she explains, “It’s a humbling experience to try and pen God’s wonder. It’s a weight and a responsibility to put confessions in other people’s mouth’s to say to God.”
Tiffany has also been honored to be part of the numerous accolades Elevation Worship has received: RIAA Gold certification, a Grammy Award, two Billboard Music Awards, and two GMA Dove Awards.
