The ear-worm from Chris Bray’s latest album is stuck in our heads

J-P Mauro - published on 09/06/17

“In the Name” is a great Christian-pop song you'll want to listen to again and again.

Chris Bray released “In the Name” on his 2017 album, Joy in My Heart. The song has a great pop guitar riff and wonderful laid back feel, which makes it a great candidate for the repeat button.

Bray has been an active musician since 2009, when his first release, The Worship Album, placed two of its songs in the #1 spot in the Canadian Christian radio charts. In 2011, he enjoyed more success when his album Let Hope Arise won Modern Worship Album of the Year.

He has spent time in Nashville writing songs with some of the biggest names in the industry, which he credits with his growth as a songwriter in an interview with All About Worship.

I felt like I had developed my song writing skills on my own as much as I could and that I had plateaued. So many songwriters stay in that rut, and write the same kinds of songs over and over again. Forcing myself to write with others (especially more talented writers) was like flexing my writing muscles, introducing new ideas that challenged me, allowing me to get stronger and nurture the gifts God had given me. I personally think it’s something that needs to be done continually.

Bray and his group travel across North America as worship leaders. They have performed and worked with a number of powerhouse Christian artists, including Matt Maher, Audrey Assad, and Peter Furler.
