Husband-and-wife duo Jared and Kat Hartmann knew early on that their faith and love of music would drive their future together. Today, that bond has helped to create a new album full of uplifting tracks that honor the passion and purpose with which they live their lives. Their first single, "In Awe," is the perfect embodiment of that spirit.
"In Awe" was written by Kat&Jared and inspired by the realization that the same epiphanies of faith that had moved them as individuals could be shared with a wider audience. The words flowed easily: "You are always chasing after/pulling at my heart/You see revival in me/Your light cuts through the dark." Add in Kat's soaring, luminous vocals, Jared's dynamically rhythmic guitar, and a brilliant soul-stirring melody, and you can't help but feel infused with energy that reaches all the way to your heart. Kat&Jared are going for adds with "In Awe" today via Play MPE at Christian, Christian CHR, Christian Praise & Worship, and Christian Hot AC formatted radio stations.
Before starting their family, the Hartmann's spent 8 years on the road touring with Jared's platinum-selling band, Flyleaf. Those long days of sold-out gigs and enthusiastic performances helped them hone not only their musical skills but their idea of what kind of music they really want to play. For this couple, there is a message, a mission, a desire to spread hope and light, and they're doing it with every heartfelt note. Kat&Jared released their debut self-titled indie/worship EP earlier this month.
