On September 10, 2020, singer-songwriter Rorie will release an EP called ‘Resonate’: a collection of hymns and spiritual songs. The project includes four original songs and two classic hymns, with the title track and main single “Resonate” produced by Nashville based and grammy nominated producer Jordan Sapp (Jeremy Camp, Tauren Wells, Riley Clemmons) available now HERE.
The songs on this EP were written within the turbulence of year 2020, which ended with Rorie and her husband going through a heartbreaking miscarriage. The title track “Resonate” is a worship anthem, filled with the hope of the gospel. Other songs such as the honestly acoustic “Cry for Joy” and ethereal “Night Watch” (inspired by Psalm 63 and 46) get personal: addressing anxiety, insomnia, miscarriage, and the fight for joy. The reflective “Nicodemus” draws a parallel from the modern-day journey of a believer to that of the religious leader in scripture who went to speak with Jesus secretly. She closes the EP with her own arrangement of two classic hymns, which have been requested by many listeners over the years.
“As an artist, I always promised myself that the music that I wrote and released would be honest. I decided that if I created art that came from a real place, then those who resonated with each individual song would eventually find it, somewhere along the way.” Most of the Resonate EP was produced right in Rorie’s apartment, with the exception of the lead single “Resonate,” which was written by Rorie at home but produced by 2021 Grammy-nominated Jordan Sapp at his studio in Nashville, TN. “This was exactly the music that I needed to create during this past year while processing both pain and hope. It’s a glimpse into my prayers, worship, and very real moments of my life. It was a way of singing truth to myself in moments when I needed to believe it most. If I can share even a hint of God’s amazing love with someone who hears these songs, then it will be worth it.”
