Today is the day! Jonny Diaz's anticipated self-titled project releases is now officially available in stores and online. From descriptions of "authentic" and "inspiring," to "encouraging," "refreshing" and "honest," Jonny Diaz releases to much critical acclaim. If you haven't yet heard the heartfelt songs from this inspiring songwriter, you will after you see what the critics are saying. Read on...

"Throughout the entirety of the album there is a positive, inspirational ambience...if you’re looking for a healthy dose of encouraging songs, few albums will do the trick better."

“Jonny Diaz is a strong follow up that will more than satisfy fans of More Beautiful You, and it has moments of originality and honesty that are quite good.”
- The Sound Opinion

"...The center of the album is a worshipful heart that beats strong and steadfast."

“One unique quality I do enjoy about the way he presents himself in his music is you can feel the authenticity behind what he is singing...that he is really doing his work for the kingdom....a must buy for anyone with a love for acoustically-driven artists."

“Believers will find this album inspiring and encouraging....the twelve song release keeps God at the forefront throughout, which is sadly becoming more rare today....Diaz puts together an impressive and refreshing album."

This INO Records' singer and songwriting talent is excited to be promoting his highly anticipated CD and its first single, "Beauty of the Cross." The other songs from Jonny Diaz also encompass a full range of human emotions – from the heights of love to the depths of grief; from praising God to a cry for those whose lives are broken. Through his music, the Church receives challenging and encouraging reminders that every broken human life can find redemption in God’s love.

Continuing to heavily promote his new music throughout street week, Diaz ran a big Facebook promotion over the weekend and is currently calling more than 70 radio stations to talk about the record, chatting with outlets such as American Family Radio, KCMS Seattle, WONU Chicago, WAWZ New York, KFIS Portland, WCSG Grand Rapids, and WVFJ Atlanta. The first radio tune, "Beauty of the Cross," is currently #8 on Billboard’s Christian AC Indicator Chart. It is also No. 2 on Soft AC/Inspo and #18 AC Monitored and new stations are coming on board each week.

Jonny Diaz was produced by Ed Cash (Dave Barnes, Chris Tomlin), Chris Stevens (Toby Mac, Sanctus Real), Jeff Pardo (Josh Wilson, Denver and the Mile High Orchestra), and Steve Wilson (Josh Wilson, Leeland).

There is no question that Jonny Diaz is an artist with a mission - to serve the Body of Christ. And from the very beginning of his music career, his desire has always been to write songs that encourage and entertain, yet challenge fellow believers. His latest CD compilation definitely accomplishes that mission.

“I attempted to break free from some of the traditional confines of Christian music, but I couldn’t get away from the fact that most of my songs revolve around my relationship with Christ," Diaz shares. "He is the focus of my life, and I find it impossible to honestly record my emotions and my journey without including Him. The people who truly understand my music share this same kind of relationship with God.”
