Nashville, Tenn. October 6, 2009… After nabbing the No. 1 position on the iTunes ® Christian and Gospel Album chart and the No. 22 spot on the overall iTunes ® album chart upon its release, Fee’s Hope Rising streets today with the radio single “Glory to God Forever” mounting on the charts and media giving acclaim to the band’s latest efforts.

Below is just a sample of the media’s response to Hope Rising:
Hope Rising is a definite necessity for any avid CCM or praise & worship fan. It once again shows us how powerfully talented the group is, which is no big surprise for existing Fee fans out there.” –

“I can’t get enough of this album and every song is worshipful, totally catchy and instantly sing-able.” –

“The sort of anthemic, powerful worship album that makes you want to jump up and kneel at the same time. “ – Group Magazine

“... a cut above much of what you'll find in an overcrowded worship music industry.” –

5 out of 5 stars! “Their follow-up, Hope Rising, will make you forget the term, “sophomore slump.” Now that the worship music genre has established itself as its own entity, Fee has claimed a spot as front-runners and trendsetters.” –

Fee’s current single “Glory to God Forever” is at the No. 21 spot at AC and is No. 8 on the Soft AC/Inspo charts. To watch the making of Hope Rising as well as hear more about new songs such as “Glory to God Forever,” visit:

The Atlanta-based band is teaming up with multi-platinum and GRAMMY® nominated group MercyMe as well as newcomer Jonny Diaz as they visit auditoriums and churches across the country this month. All tour dates listed below.

Produced by Jason Hoard and lead singer Steve Fee, Fee’s newest release Hope Rising contains twelve original tracks. Though the band continued with their signature worship sound on the record, Hope Rising also includes statement songs that the band hopes will transcend one style of music.

From national worship conferences to local youth group meetings, Fee has brought a new level of abandon and talent to rock worship, gifting today’s church with riveting songs of praise. Known for amazing live performances and the No. 1 hit "All Because of Jesus" plus "Glorious One," and Christmas song “All Creation Sing (Joy To The World),” Fee continues to inspire the church musically with this all-new release of soon-to-be modern classics. The band has been associated with some of today’s most forthcoming faith-based events including Passion, 7:22 and Catalyst conferences. Fee released their debut INO project & GMA Dove nominated We Shine in September 2007. The band’s hit single “All Because of Jesus” also garnered the No. 10 spot on R&R’s AC Songs of the Year. Fee Front man Steve Fee was also selected to lead worship at the 92nd annual Indianapolis 500 chapel services in 2008, the biggest event of the Indy Car Series. Hailing from Atlanta, GA, Steve Fee, Matt Adkins, Heath Balltzglier and Brandon Coker still lead worship at the North Point Community Church.
