Devin Williams, a six-time Billboard Top 30 Christian Rock charting artist, takes the #1 spot this week with the “Christian Rock Most Added” song on the Billboard charts according to Nielsen BDS with his latest release Like a Fire. The rock version of Devin’s single is currently available on i Tunes, Spotty, Google Play, Apple Music and Amazon. The song is also featured on Devin’s new project Devin Williams with String Quartet-which can be pre-ordered by clicking here and will be available on all on-line retailers on Friday, August 31.
“I’ve always felt, since we recorded the original rock version, that Like a Fire was a song that people needed to hear,” says Devin. “With everything going on in the world, just turning on a news broadcast or opening a social media application can be overwhelming, but this song is a reminder that God’s truth and lessons remain. As I sing in the chorus — ‘You can’t stop this light from burning.’ I’m excited for everyone to hear the new version that we have on the string project, too. The quartet and the new arrangements are shedding a whole new light on these songs.”
Devin reimagines five of his six Billboard Top-30 Christian Rock hits in this new collection Devin Williams with String Quartet, featuring the lush arrangements of a string quartet. This project is mastered by Brad Blackwood, the Grammy Award winningengineer behind projects for Maroon 5, Korn, Skillet, Sara Bareilles & Alison Krauss. In addition, he honors his new dual citizenship status with the release of his first song in Italian Qui Per Te (Here for You). He most recently wrapped a two night headliner run in the Middle Tennessee area at the Robertson County Fair.
