Multiple Grammy-nominated, Dove Award winning Sanctus Real lead vocalist Matt Hammitt is releasing his first solo album, Every Falling Tear. Organically sparked by the rich joy and pain of life over the last year which has strengthened Hammitt’s faith and solidified his resolve to lead his family well, these new songs are his most deeply personal to date.
On April 12 Matt and his wife found out that their son was going to be born with a severe congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Every Falling Tear became a prophetic glimpse into what the Hammitts were about to go through, and proved to a be a source of hope. Born out of the heart of a father, wrestling with his pain, but buoyed by his faith and love for his family, Hammitt’s main impetus for writing the songs on Every Falling Tear was to play them at his son’s bedside in the hospital, with the hope that they would be a source of comfort for his family, as well as a reminder of God’s faithfulness in the midst of their uncertainty.
