Contemporary Christian music’s prized four member family act, Ashmont Hill continue their praise-filled quest to conquer hearts for Christ by unveiling news of a forthcoming release THE MAZE (Axiom Records) set to release digitally on August 20th with marketing/branding powered by music industry executive Calvin Nowell’s Nside Entertainment (Gungor, B. Reith) and publicity efforts by The J. Hardy Agency.
The highly anticipated musical journey was catalyzed by the album’s lead single “Love Lifted Me” – the energetic, emotionally charged mid-tempo record that is currently garnering rave reviews at christian radio. Written by founding member Phil Thompson, the song’s inaugural rendition came as a collaborative effort by JJ. Hairston & Youthful Praise featuring Tye Tribbett.

Much like that version, Ashmont Hill’s take on the tune showcases the effortless sonic blending of christian pop and contemporary gospel stylings that have earned them praise from critics and fans alike. Lathering the accompaniment with soul stirring vocal displays, the song’s sincere delivery quickly resonated with listeners – skyrocketing to the top of Billboard Christian Singles’ Chart upper rankings and lifting “Love Lifted Me” to an 18 week consecutive run on the charts Top 15.
After 2 successful album releases, 2008’s self-titled debut ASHMONT HILL (#10 peak Top Gospel Albums, #16 peak Top Christian Albums) and its 2010 follow-up YOUR MASTERPIECE (#5 peak Top Gospel Albums, #17 peak Top Christian Albums, Top 50 peak Independent Albums), THE MAZE is on par to follow the inspirational trail blazed by its predecessors. Shining as proof of why Ashmont Hill, since their debut, have been regarded as leading examples for this generation’s worshipers.
Ashmont Hill will continue to promote THE MAZE by hitting the road this fall to share their new music throughout various churches and promotional events. Keep up with Ashmont Hill on Facebook and on twitter @ashmonthill
