 Our Description

By award-winning contemporary Catholic singer/songwriter Matt Maher.

A musical testament to God's overflowing blessings, these 14 songs speak powerfully of what it means to be Christian in the third millennium.

It exceeds every expectation
Matt Maher's latest album exceeds every expectation. As one industry insider put it, it "crackles with energy." A musical testament to God's overflowing blessings, these 14 songs speak powerfully of what it means to be Christian in the third millennium.

Cool, playful, driving sound
The title track is a cool, easy-paced piece inviting God -- in his word and sacramental presence -- to overflow in us. Bursting with joy, "Resurrection Day" jumps and hops. Its playful, driving sound and unforgettable refrain draw you in to savor the freedom Christ won for us.

A breathless, thrilling ride
Matt really cuts loose on "Everything You've Done." A celebration of God's gifts, it starts out innocently enough. But suddenly he doubles its two-beat rock tempo and you're whisked away on a breathless, thrilling ride that ends with a flurry of guitars and musical fireworks. You can't help but "dance for the Lord."

Lush, alternative-rock arrangements
"Timeless" is a brilliant adaptation of Suzanne Toolan's "Jesus Christ, Yesterday, Today and Forever." Matt weaves the refrain from that haunting, Taizé-style song into his own lush, alternative-rock arrangement.

Intense, full-blooded covers
Two of the biggest surprises are "Come to the Water" and "Adoration." You just wouldn't expect to find "Tantum Ergo," a traditional eucharistic hymn, and a 1978 John Foley song here. But Matt pulls it off -- and then some. His intense, electric, full-blooded versions take these classics to a new level -- without squandering any of the original reverence.

Pop masterpieces
"Hear and Now" is a pop masterpiece assuring us that God's kingdom is here "in our midst," not some pie in the sky. Opening with a wispy, acoustic guitar, "Unwavering" eases you in to rest in God's "unwavering hand."

With Overflow, Matt's visionary songwriting once again leads listeners closer to the heart of God.

I love Matt Maher’s CD, Overflow. I first heard about Matt Maher on LifeTeen where he’s done some videos and I was excited to get a chance to listen to an entire CD of his music. I stuck the CD in the player almost immediately after its arrival and fell in love with the music. This CD is a mix of styles; but primarily contemporary Christian with Catholic themes.

Overflow, the title track, is a prayer to God asking Him to fill us. There are fast paced songs such as Resurrection Day which glorifies the resurrection; you can’t help but dance with joy when you listen to it. So many people think of Catholic music as monk chants, so a fast paced song like this is a nice change. And there are a number of slower songs such as Timeless, Alive in You, Behold the La Full Review...
