Has this happened to you or is it just me? I thought I’d “discovered” a new artist/musician. Mind you, I discovered her on iTunes where they were promoting a FREE Indie Download that turned out to not be free (sometimes the expiration of “free” forgets to trigger the disappearance of the offer graphics) so someone on iTunes obviously discovered her before I did. But still, it was before 6 am on a Tuesday and I was feeling confident that I was about to bring breaking news to my blog.
Time for a bit of research — mostly motivated by a search for a graphic to share so you have something to look at on here. Found a website with links to all the standard social media, including Facebook. All of this is being done while I’m listening to the album purchased and downloaded from iTunes onto my iPhone before I even got out of bed — now transferred onto my iMac.
By now I’m thinking that it would be cool to see if she might be coming to Orlando any time soon – thinking that seeing her in concert would be sweet. Then I read the wall post on her Facebook fan page about the concert in Orlando. 4 days ago. At Northland.
And as I keep listening (really enjoying this music) I realize that the song we sang at Northland on Sunday morning that I really liked and which intended to come home and Google so I could maybe download it from somewhere is one of hers.
Further poking about on Google reveals that she’s been interviewed and those interviews shared via a few reputable media outlets. She’s toured with names you’re likely to know if you are even casually familiar with worship music, for instance. So, I’m FAR from the one who discovered Audrey Assad. I will not be able to take credit for launching her career and that’s really fine. It’s likely better for me and absolutely better for her.
If you use iTunes, it’s a great download–currently $7.99 for the album (11 songs).
