Pre-Order New Selah CD “You Deliver Me”

You Deliver Me

Hey everyone,

after almost 4 years we have a new CD, “You Deliver Me,” coming out August 25th!!  We are so excited about it!  When we started recording two years ago, it was to commemorate 10 years of music.  It’s a throw back to our first CD, Be Still My Soul, which was mostly piano/vocal, and hymns.

We started recording Be Still My Soul fathers day 1997.  We finished it in two weeks with a $2,000 budget.  We had borrowed some money from my mother, and Allan’s roommate Jason gave us a great deal on a studio.  It was suppose to be a one time independent CD.  We had no intention of doing it long term.  Nicol was signed to Curb Records as a solo artist and she gave a copy to the label.  When Mr. Curb heard it he called her the next day and said he would like to sign us as a trio!

We just started singing at churches which is what we’ve done most of our career.  We are so thankful to every pastor, music pastor, and promoter who would put in the effort and time to bring us in and allow us to share our music.  It’s incredible that  You Deliver Me will be our 6th release!  Not many artist get that opportunity!

This is the first full release with Amy Perry on it!  She is amazing!  She has been with us now for four years and we are so excited for everyone to hear her!

You Deliver Me includes:

Into My Heart/Fairest Lord Jesus, How Deep The Fathers Love, You Deliver Me, Hosanna, Standing On The Promises/Leaning on the Everlasting Arms, Beautiful Terrible Cross, The Lords Prayer, Unredeemed (Amy sings this beautifully, and I think it is such a powerful song), Down At the Cross, I Have Decided To Follow Jesus (my brother Jack and his wife Molly sing with me African style), Depth of Mercy, I Surrender All, God Be With You, and I Will Carry You (a song about my late daughter Audrey)

You can pre-order “You Deliver Me” now.  Just go here!  It comes with a 4 song EP and a 20 minute interview about the songs. Although you won’t receive the CD until August 25th, the 4 song EP/Interview will be mailed to you as soon as you order You Deliver Me!  All 4 songs are from the CD!

If you order 10 copies you will do your part in helping me save for my daughters college/wedding fund!!

Thank you for listening all these years,

Todd

  8. Oh goodness! Todd, you canNOT imagine the excitement my entire family has anticipating Selah’s new release! We are all pre-ordering it! I wish I could convey the words dear enough to explain what Selah’s ministry has had in my life. God is so good and has used the words, music, and testimonies to grow, change, and sweetly encourage me. Thank you…Thank you for following God’s leading in your life! How we praise Him and pray for each of you. God bless you!

    P.S. We had the God-given opportunity to finally attend a Selah concert this last December in Freeport, IL – It was absolutely the most God-honoring concert I’ve ever attended. Thank you for giving HIM all the glory!

  10. No problem, Todd! I just ordered mine. I was just thinking maybe it was a special deal for your blog followers! 🙂 When I saw you answered me, I kinda felt like how Angie did when Beth M. commented to her on the blog! :)) God bless you and your family.

  16. can’t wait for the new CD… I really love the music you guys do. So… you mentioned churches inviting you to come and sing – what would be involved in getting Selah to come to Albany, NY? I have an idea forming – but I need more info!! 🙂 Feel free to email if that it easier.

  17. Hey Todd. When I pre-ordered the cd from familychristian.com, they informed me that the cd would ship the same day as the full cd!

    I had the privilege to drive to an actual Family Christian store and preorder through them, and they HANDED me sample CD! (YAY!)

    Not sure if any others are having this problem, and perhaps I was misinformed by the familychristian.com rep, but I just thought I would let you know!

  18. Ok, Ordered my copy, do I have to wait til the 25th! Kidding, Can’t wait! God Bless and thank you for what you do! Your ministry is a blessing more than you will ever know!

  19. Hi Todd…have you heard if the 4 song EP CD is on hold? I pre-ordered my CD on June 15th but haven’t received the EP yet. Just curious if there was a hold on the release or if maybe something else is going on…? Sorry to bug you, I just can’t stand to wait any longer!!! 🙂

  20. Hello Todd, I want to thank you so much for your story about Aubrey. When I read your story, I thought I was reading my cousin’s story word for word. She too chose to deliver her son, Matthew, despite his having Potter’s Syndrome (kidneys not forming, low fluid, etc). He lived a total of 6 hours though the doctors predicted he would not live past the first few minutes of his birth.
    Do you know if there will be a soundtrack available of I Will Carry You? My cousin’s father and I would like to sing this for my cousin at her son’s memorial, however, have not been able to find the soundtrack yet. I cannot tell you what this would mean not only to my cousin, but to her father as well. Unfortunately this is the second child she has lost at birth, and her grieving process has been tragic.

    Any information you can give is appreciated!
    Love in Christ.

  21. Todd, your song “I will carry you” is a gift through your pain to a wounded world from our precious God! I do a holiday service of healing at our church in Johnstown, Colorado (tiny town north of Denver) and everyone I have shared it with finds such joy and comfort. Thank you for the beautiful courage to write this song. On December 6th we will have our service to light the candles in memory of those whose lights have gone out here but are glowing brightly in heaven. Maybe someday we will be honored to hear you perform the song in person. Bless you and your family as you have honored those who carry them!!!
