The name Aaron Shust is attached to many of the great worship songs that have emerged over the past 12 years from his first hit "My Saviour My God" to 2011's "My Hope Is In You". This year sees him releasing his first live album and it is no disappointment to his prior catalogue of work. Both of these aforementioned songs feature on 'Love Made A Way' in slightly different arrangements to the originals. "My Saviour My God" returns with the full-bodied sound that comes with an accompanying audience including a lovely little electric guitar solo towards the end of the track. This song continues to mature and resound with praise rather than being left behind in the previous decade. Choosing songs from his previous records and intermingling them with a couple of covers, such as Bethel Music's "Ever Be" and Hillsong's version of the classic Edward Mote hymn "Cornerstone", plus some new releases, Shust has succeeded in producing a well-rounded record which echoes with celebration for a very faithful God. The album concludes with the up-beat tempo, thrilling drumbeats and charging lyrics of "Lead On", leaving the listener in no doubt that the future is for following Christ alone. Recorded live in a studio in Nashville, 'Love Made A Way' is sonically impressive and runs seamlessly from start to finish.

Product Description
All new live album from singer songwriter Aaron Shust. After years of touring and the early success of songs like My Saviour, My God which became one of the most played songs ever on Christian radio Aaron Shust returned to his roots, both musically and geographically. In 2010 Aaron moved his family back to his hometown of Aliquippa, and he accepted the position of volunteer worship leader in the small church where he had grown up. Even as he recorded two new records for Centricity Music he was rediscovering the notion that he was a worship leader rather than a performer, and that the songs he wrote should be offerings for the church more than attempts to get songs played on the radio.
