Chart-topping CCM artist Jonny Diaz returns with a 12-song album, Sweetness and Sorrow. Featuring six brand new songs, along with a handful of Diaz’s previous hits on the album’s Deluxe Edition, this new project is available now for physical purchase and on all digital platforms.
Produced by Jeff Pardo (Francesca Battistelli) and Scott Cash (Passion), Sweetness and Sorrow showcases Diaz’s signature easygoing melodies and classic sound. The singer-songwriter reflects on his journeys of faith and family, describing the importance of cherishing God in the ups, downs, and sweet in-betweens.
“Making this project was relaxed and fun,” Diaz reflects. “And in having fun, it resulted in some of the most creative work. None of those songwriting pressures– Will it be a hit radio song? Does it have mass appeal?– were even asked. We just focused on the question of ‘What’s God stirring in our hearts and how can we explore that truth and have fun with it?’”
