A new adult-focused worship album by Yancy, whose songs are featured in the latest Standard Publishing Vacation Bible School (VBS) curriculum, was released this week.
Roots for the Journey started as a Scripture-based lullaby project for her son, but then evolved from there for the artist known as Christian music's "Queen of Diversity" for her eclectic music.
"Roots for the Journey is incredibly different musically from what I've done these past few years," Yancy said. "I'm so excited about this music that is unplugged, organic and simple. The songs are all based on Scripture and the outcome is a really nice, chilled-out worship experience."
Produced by Stephen Leiweke (Sara Groves, Jars of Clay), the album features Leiweke on guitar, Chris Donohue (Emmylou Harris, Bart Millard) on bass, Matt Stanfield (Kutless, Norah Jones) on keys, Ken Lewis (The Civil Wars, Amy Grant) on drums and Sixpence None the Richer's Matt Slocum on cello.
God's Backyard Bible Camp VBS includes mini-concerts from Yancy, who sang several of songs she wrote for Standard's 2013 VBS curriculum.
