Brandon Heath, a five-time GRAMMY® nominee and eight-time Dove Award winner, will release Enough Already, his first full-length Centricity Music album, on April 22. The album features the top 25 and growing NCA Monitored Billboard radio smash “See Me Through It,” as well as eight other tracks that find Heath writing and recording with several producers and composers for the first time.
Heath enlisted GRAMMY-nominated producers Jordan Sapp and Jeff Pardo, as well as Apollo LTD, Kyle Williams (We Are Messengers), and Christian Hale, to mix select Enough Already tracks, as well as Doug Weier, Nick Rad, and five-time GRAMMY winner Dave Clauss. He further collaborated with multiple songwriters, co-writing with producers Hale, Williams and Apollo LTD’s Jordan Phillips and Adam Stark along with Paul Duncan, Ross King, Jonathan Smith, Mallary Hope, Molly Reed Grayson, Heather Morgan and GRAMMY Award winning Ran Jackson.
“I’ve heard music is medicine before, but I don’t consider myself as a pharmacist.” I’m not interested in being a healer. But I do consider myself as a sharer,” says Heath, a storyteller whose songs wrestle with faith and skepticism at the same time. “I can’t sit down and write a prescription for someone,” she says, “but I can offer some of my own grief and perspective, and I believe that connection is what allows others to feel the healing.”
Heath makes it a point in his music to not shy away from the difficult aspects of his story. Instead, he believes that his songs will have a newfound honesty and wisdom as a result of his decades of life experience.
“I feel like I’m building a repertoire that will be my legacy,” Heath says, adding, “Outside of being a husband and father, I have yet to find a finer feeling than writing a song and then hearing what that song is accomplishing in someone’s life one day by chance.” Nothing comes close to it. Nothing.”
That includes Heath’s recent journey to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro with Young Life Developing Global Leaders last month. While in high school, Heath was a member of Young Life, an outreach organization that provided a platform for him to express his songs and budding musical skill.
“I was singing songs for them over the summer,” remembers Heath during a The 700 Club interview. “I’d take my guitar and lead club songs, which are usually songs you hear on the radio, but then I’d start singing a couple of my own songs…”
The seeds of Heath’s new songs were sown in his backyard, where he has spent most of the last year thinking, praying, and mowing his steep plot of property, which contains a tiny creek, a play set for his young girls, and a fire pit for his men’s group. His upcoming album has essentially sprouted in his garden.
Heath spent a surprising amount of time in other people’s backyards after the epidemic shut off touring in 2020. He made the decision to perform small, safe outdoor events in select backyards across the country, by invitation only.
These “Brandon in the Backyard” dates were so enjoyable that Heath is making plans now to play an additional 30 backyards this spring and summer. Traveling with his family in an RV, Heath leads these events with his guitar; and more times than not, he’s completely unplugged.
Playing his hits and fan favorites, Heath will also play cuts from Enough Already while on tour. The full new album track listing follows:
