Crafting songs that make this happen was the goal with Whispered and Shouted, the follow-up album to Aaron Shust's chart-topping debut Anything Worth Saying. A life-long churchgoer, Shust grew up in Pittsburgh, where he started playing piano at 7. As a teenager, Aaron learned to play the guitar and was influenced by the sounds of the sixties and Motown. Attending Toccoa Falls College, Shust studied music theory, developed an aptitude for the likes of Bach and Mozart, and soaked in the sounds of more recent masters like his favorite band U2.
These contemporary influences come to bear on Whispered and Shouted. It's an exploration of new musical territory for what is at its heart another praise and worship album from this exciting newcomer.
