Sanctus Real's Matt Hammitt To Release Solo Album September 13th
June 7, 2011 at 8:37 AM (PT)
SANCTUS REAL lead vocalist MATT HAMMITT will release his first solo album, "EVERY FALLING TEAR," via SPARROW RECORDS on SEPTEMBER 13th.
The songs on the album reflect the past year in HAMMITT's family life after the birth of MATT and his wife SARAH's son BOWEN on SEPTEMBER 9, 2010. BOWEN has had two heart surgeries, an infection and other complications since being born.
HAMMITT's main reason for writing the songs on the album was to play them at BOWEN’s bedside in the hospital. The songs were meant to be a source of comfort for the family and to serve as a reminder of God’s faithfulness in the midst of their uncertainty.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of "EVERY FALLING TEAR" and its singles will go to benefit the WHOLE HEARTS FOUNDATION, a new foundation HAMMITT has set up to help families going through similar challenges as himself. The foundation will provide assistance for families of children affected by congenital heart defects. Additional details on the foundation will be announced soon.
