Grammy-nominated, five-time Dove Award winning Female Artist of the Year, Natalie Grant is set to release the highly anticipated album, Hurricane on October 15, 2013 from Curb Records.

“I've journeyed through a lot over the past three years,” said Natalie Grant in a recent press release. “This record is full of my stories and is a reminder that no matter how dark the struggle may seem, I am not alone. And through writing these songs, I've been reminded that hope always wins.”

With award winning husband/producer Bernie Herms at the helm of her latest musical endeavor, Grant poured her heart into this record and wrote on eight of the 10 tracks. Based on her own real-life experiences , Grant addresses for the first time, her struggle with post-partum depression after the birth of her third child, her feelings of inadequacy when it comes to parenting; her feelings of guilt over the ceaseless balance of work, family, motherhood and faith. The project offers listeners a sense of hope, peace and encouragement.

"This record is full of music that is positive and bright, both musically and lyrically, which is almost the antitheses to how I have felt for the last few years, but it is the result of hope and faith,” Grant continued. "Even when everything seems dark, my faith keeps the light on. I feel these songs help me to tell that truth in a fresh way."

Hurricane is a follow up to Grant’s Love Revolution. Natalie's success is grounded in her abilities as a powerhouse vocalist, songwriter and performer. Several of her recent hits include “Your Great Name,” and the Grammy-nominated “Alive.”

Within hours of its release in May, the lead single, “Hurricane” hit number one on iTunes (http://bit.ly/Hurricane1), and exploded onto the Billboard and MediaBase charts, making it the fastest rising single of her career.

In the wake of the instant popularity of "Hurricane” at radio, Grant continues to prove she has strong support through social media. Reports indicate that she maintains the highest level of actual fan engagement in her genre on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. For the latest news and tour dates, visit www.nataliegrant.com.
