The blurb on this debut release from Sheri Carr links her sound with the likes of CCM stalwarts Jennifer Knapp and Nichole Nordeman. In reality, the US singer/songwriter and Vineyard contributor has a style all of her own and she shines in this collection of mostly self-penned songs of devotion. Possessing a strong voice that more than stands up to all that renowned producer Nathan Nockels (Matt Redman, Chris Tomlin) throws at it, Carr is most at home in the guitar-driven rock of "Sing Your Praise" and "Shout Aloud". Betraying an adept versatility though, Carr glides effortlessly into quiet, meditative offerings such as a version of Jesse Rowell's "You Are So Beautiful" and the memorable "This Heart Of Mine" before bravely finishing on a more minimal note with a Celtic-tinged cover of Daphne Rademaker's "Serving You". Carr describes this release as a snapshot of the ups and downs of her walk with God and, with songs such as the title track calling us to trust God in times of uncertainty, this is a relevant collection of songs that will encourage many listeners in their relationship with Christ.

For her debut solo release, Fearless Now, veteran producer Nathan Nockels and a talented group of musicians have joined with Sheri to create a project that highlights her incredible songwriting and vocal abilities, while consistently focusing the listener on the Father. "I have been so humbled and blessed by the incredibly talented musicians that have contributed to this project," says Carr. "God is amazing to orchestrate it all the way He has." So often referred to as "that girl on the Vineyard record", listeners will finally be able to put a face and a name to that voice now that Fearless Now, the solo debut from Sheri Carr, is available.
