MercyMe is an award winning American contemporary Christian music band. Their most recent album, titled Inhale (exhale) released April 30, 2021. It is being described as a finely crafted album that offers hope and encouragement to a hurting world. From the one-minute opener “inhale” that urges us to “hold onto Jesus and breathe” to the rollicking anthem “Blessed” that reminds us of the power of grace to the “Bright Side of Broken”, a powerful anthem that acknowledges pain and struggle while reminding us there’s hope in such lines as “the bright side of being broken is in the hands that are holdin’ every piece, reminding me that it’s gonna be ok.” We want people to inhale the promise of Jesus and exhale just this joy. A lot of people are tired and kind of beat down by just being hit from every direction, whether it’s media or whatever it is. They just get bombarded,” Millard says. “One reason why we’re calling the album inhale (exhale) is we all just want to sit back for a second and take a deep breath and be like, ‘Okay this is what matters. This is what matters.’ I’m grateful that messages like that seem to resonate with people on a consistent basis because there is hope in that, and if they can still get fired up about what’s to come then not all is lost.” The fast-rising single “Say I Won’t” is a potent declaration of faith and perseverance colored by tragedy that struck very close to the band. Gary Miracle, a longtime friend that worked with MercyMe for many years, contracted an infection that resulted in having both his arms and legs amputated. His indomitable spirit in the face of such challenges was inspiring. It’s an overcoming song.” The band consists of lead vocalist Bart Millard, percussionist Robby Shaffer, bassist Nathan Cochran and guitarists Michael Scheuchzer and Barry Graul. https://mercyme.org/
