MEMPHIS, Tenn. (November 15, 2017) - Chart-topping, seven-time Dove Award-nominated singer, songwriter and worship leader Todd Agnew has signed an agreement for representation by respected booking agent Scott Huie of H2O Artist Agency. Agnew joins the agency's growing roster of Christian artists that includes Platinum®-selling, GRAMMY®-nominated Newsboys, GRAMMY®-nominated recording artist Peter Furler; GRAMMY®-nominated singer/songwriter Ryan Stevenson; Dove-nominated band Rush of Fools; hard rock mainstay Seventh Day Slumber; and up and coming new artists Ashes Remain, Austin French, and DJ Maj.

"I'm thrilled to join forces with H2O Artist Agency," says Agnew. "Scott Huie has a stellar reputation in the industry as a man of vision and integrity, and I'm extremely honored to be working with him.

"It's one thing to have commercial success, but quite another to achieve the depth of insight and musicality that comes with years of experience. Todd Agnew has both," says Huie of his newest artist. "If you're hosting a concert or event and want an artist who can engage your audience with compelling music, authentic worship, and transformative insight, Todd Agnew is definitely an artist to consider."

A steady buzz has been surrounding Agnew's new project, From Grace to Glory: The Music of Todd Agnew, since the release of the first single, "Glory to Our Great Redeemer." Called a "spine tingling new hymn" by UK publication CrossRhythms, the single has gained traction at Christian Soft A/C and INSP radio formats, showing up as one of the Most Added songs on Billboard's Christian Soft A/C chart, and landing in the Top Ten on both the Christian Music Weekly's (CMW) Worship and INSP charts. Another song from the new project, "When Love Comes to Town" (Agnew's U2 cover from the benefit album, In the Name of Love: Artists United for Africa) landed in the Top Five on the CMW Christian Country Chart. 

Agnew's studies at Dallas Theological Seminary (where he is nearing completion of his Masters degree) led him to pen "Glory to Our Great Redeemer." The song reflects Agnew's deepening spiritual, theological, and musical maturity through the process of getting married, embracing fatherhood, moving to Texas and delving deeper into the formal study of God's Word at seminary.

"The song talks about ransom, redemption, adoption and more," Agnew explains. "Our worship grows deeper as we understand more fully all God has done on our behalf."

"There are certain artists whose voice seems to cut through the clutter of our lives and stop us in our tracks," says James Riley, VP of Promotions, Shamrock Media Group. "Todd Agnew is one of those artists for me and I'm honored to help bring this new single, "Glory to Our Great Redeemer," to radio. From the opening moments of the song, you're engaged. I couldn't even respond to the email asking if I'd be interested in working it to radio for a while, as I was too busy hitting 'repeat.' It's so great to have Todd back in front of radio!"

About From Grace to Glory: The Music of Todd Agnew: 

From Grace to Glory is a musical chronicle of singer/songwriter and worship leader Todd Agnew's journey of faith and ministry. It is a time capsule of moments, both profoundly intimate and exuberantly bold, that captures the essence of walking out the gospel hand-in-hand with friends and family, through good times and hard times. It is the journal of one man's transformation from a young singer/songwriter to troubadour theologian. 

Along the way, Agnew has emerged as a seasoned scholar and mentor in the fields of worship theology and worship leadership. Adding "college professor" to his list of titles, Agnew joined the faculty of Visible Music College's Dallas campus in 2015 and was recently tapped by Dallas Theological Seminary as a guest lecturer for its 2017 Shaped by the Future conference. He is increasingly sought after as a guest speaker at churches and conferences across the country.

Family and friendship have always played a huge role in Todd Agnew's life, music and ministry, and those relationships run like a thread throughout From Grace to Glory. In addition to "Glory to Our Great Redeemer," Agnew collaborated with his long-time friend Chris Collins (Agnew's co-writer on "Grace Like Rain") on the other new song on this project, "Nearer Home."

Along with the new material, the prolific singer/songwriter layers into From Grace to Glory a collection of some of his most cherished songs which are not part of his Ardent Records discography, most of which have not been previously released. He includes "Beautiful," the original version of a song written by Mercy Me's Nathan Cochran, which Agnew rewrote and originally recorded in 2005 as "Unchanging One" during the Reflection of Something sessions. He pulled another unreleased track from the vault, and invited talented Visible Music College student Trulah Maloy to join him for a duet, making "His Eye Is On the Sparrow" a truly special addition to an already exceptional project.

Additional unreleased or alternate tracks include:

*    "On A Corner in Memphis" (original demo from the Better Questions sessions)

*    "Martyr's Song" (original Matt Bronleewe production of a song Agnew wrote as an accompanying piece for best-selling author Ted Dekker's novella, The Martyr's Song)

*    "This Is All I Have to Give" (alternate version from the Do You See What I See? Christmas record with Agnew on lead vocal)

*    "When Love Comes to Town" (U2 Cover from the benefit album, In the Name of Love: Artists United for Africa).

Finally, the cornerstones of From Grace to Glory are four immensely popular songs from Agnew's first two records. "Grace Like Rain" and "This Fragile Breath (The Thunder Song)" from his debut project, Grace Like Rain, both hit Number 1 at Christian radio. Agnew was honored with Dove Award nominations for New Artist of the Year, Best Rock/Contemporary Album of the Year and Best Rock Contemporary Song for "This Fragile Breath (The Thunder Song)." "In The Middle of Me" and "My Jesus," both from Agnew's sophomore project, Reflection of Something, also garnered significant radio airplay.

Agnew builds on that foundation with four more fan favorites:

*    "Isaiah 6" (a breathtaking worship song inspired by Isaiah's vision of the Lord)

*    "Did You Mean Me?" (a confessional ballad about what it means to be chosen, called, and loved)

*    "The One That You Want" (co-written by Agnew and multi-Dove Award winner Jason Ingram)

*    "Our Great God" (written by Fernando Ortega and Mac Powell, featuring a duet with Grammy winner Rebecca St. James).

From Grace to Glory: The Music of Todd Agnew is the story of God loving and leading one man to accept the grace given him and teaching him to extend that grace to others. "From Grace to Glory is the gospel," Agnew declares. "We come to faith by grace. We live our lives by grace. We enter eternity by grace. And--from first to last--it's all for God's glory...that His character and mercy might be revealed and worshiped, both now and evermore."

About Todd Agnew:
Todd Agnew exploded onto the contemporary Christian music scene in 2003 with a pair of Number 1 radio hits, "This Fragile Breath (The Thunder Song)" and "Grace Like Rain," the title track of his debut Ardent Records album. Ironically, Agnew never set out to be a national recording artist. He just wanted to record a custom project for the camps and conferences where he was a frequent minister.

More than a dozen years and seven albums later, Agnew is still focused on ministry, using his music to proclaim the gospel. In addition to being a chart-topping singer/songwriter, worship leader and minister, Agnew has recently added "college professor" to his list of titles. Since 2015, he has

been a faculty member of Visible Music College's Dallas campus, teaching worship theology and worship leadership. He was recently tapped by Dallas Theological Seminary as a guest lecturer for its 2017 Shaped by the Future conference.

Agnew's newest CD, From Grace to Glory: The Music of Todd Agnew, released May 26, 2017 from Ardent Records and Provident/Sony Music Distribution. For more information about Agnew and From Grace to Glory: The Music of Todd Agnew, visit toddagnew.com.
