Until. Lovesongs & Worship
Until was named in Christianity Today's 'Ten Independent Artists You Should Know'(Fall 2005) by Russ Breimeier at Christianity Today! Until was in '...a list of the ten best of hundreds of albums sent to us (Christianity Today) in the last year'. Christianity Today's Russ Breimeier stated: '...The album is spearheaded by Hal Leath, a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Grand Rapids, Michigan with a voice similar to Rick Elias, Tommy Walker, and Five for Fighting's John Ondrasik. Joined by a talented team of local musicians and vocalists, he's crafted an album that's relatively varied for quiet and reflective inspirational pop. 'Until Your Day Breaks' is a beautiful piano and strings ballad, Carla Moore's smooth and silky vocal carries the jazzy 'Arise My Love,' and 'To Touch Your Face' makes an effective praise chorus similar to 'More Love, More Power.' '...Until is more soothing, engaging, and original than other bigger budget worship projects.' 'Until' is also available in many Digital Download formats online such as: iTunes, Bitmunk, Ruckus, Sony Connect, MP3tunes, MSN Music,...and many more! Produced, Recorded, & Mixed by Hal Leath at Light of the World Studios, Kentwood, Michigan. Hal Leath: Vocals, Piano, Keyboards, Classical & Acoustic guitar, Bass, Percussion, Drum Prog. GTRVoilin.
