Aaron Shust – Songs, bio and news


Showcasing the beauty of simplicity in popular modern worship anthems including “My Savior, My God” and “To God Alone,” Aaron Shust thinks a song is best when it’s stripped to its bare bones and exposed with nothing to hide behind.

Aaron started writing tracks as he led worship at Perimeter Church in Duluth, Georgia, and as a result recorded his first independent album, Nothing Worth Saying in 2004. After attracting some attention because of his God-given talents, Aaron signed a record deal and suddenly airwaves were flooded with his breakout hit, “My Savior, My God,” which was the most-played song in 2006.

Following Aaron’s success, a slew of touring and promotional appearances would follow, providing a proper introduction to the artist who was always a little more comfortable being “underground” before.

Once the tour was a wrap, however, Aaron was determined not to simply ride the coattails of “My Savior, My God”. He returned to the studio a year later to record his much-anticipated second album, Whispered and Shouted. Fueled by a desire to write music that ministered to people outside the comfy confines of the church, Aaron penned 12 songs that were both challenging and worshipful.

Aaron has recently had to deal with the sickness of his son, Nicky. Nicky has been diagnosed with Eoniophilic Esophogitis and is only able to consume food through a feeding tube. For more information or to find out how to pray for the Shust family, visit their blog.

Shust’s most recent project, This Is What We Believe- featuring the song „We Are Free-” is an album about the journey back to the roots of artist’s faith, “Over the years, I’ve written a lot of songs speaking to my own soul the way David did in the Psalms: ‘Why are you downcast? Put your hope in God.’ But these new songs are a much bolder declaration,” Aaron says, “They come out of a difficult season, and these are declarations about who God is and who we are in Him because of His great love for us. This whole project is really about praising him simply for who he is.”

His latest song „We Are Free,” is a great reminder of the freedom we have in Christ that many of us take for granted, „I was reading Romans on the flight to Nashville- especially Romans 5 and Romans 8- and came up with this idea that we have so much freedom in Christ, and that we are more than conquerors. That’s how we came up with this concept of this song,” he said. „We are free to go above and beyond, we are free to love as God has loved us, we are free to forgive others as he has forgiven us, and that’s the freedom that we have in Christ.”
