(the autumn) is a Christian worship band led by Chris Shalter and Ali Roth. The heart behind (the autumn) is to spread the Gospel of Christ through song. In a world surrounded by music they aim to use their platform to give depth and bring to light the glory, grace, mercy, hope, and love of Jesus.
On June 3rd, 2016, their first single, “Power In Your Name,” was released and was followed by their first full-length worship album, “Glorious Light” which was released on May 12th, 2017. Michael Weaver of JesusFreakHideout.com notes that “The album sets out to be different from the masses of worship artists and releases from a musical perspective” and “Glorious Light is a nice little reprieve from everyday worship tunes heard on the radio and should be enjoyed by those who love worship music.” A follow-up single, “All That I Desire” released on July 28th, 2017.
The naming of (the autumn) is intentional in two ways. The first is that the words “the autumn” describe the season of change that we see happen in nature as the old passes on to make way for the new. The parenthesis represents “internal.” Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” And so, (the autumn) is the internal change we experience in our lives when we experience the redeeming grace, love, and power of Jesus Christ.
