More Than Conquerors has been on Hannah Rose's heart since she was just fifteen years old, and it finally hit the airwaves Tuesday morning. The debut EP from the young Sand Springs singer is available now on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play.
"When I was fifteen years old, I rededicated my life to Jesus," said Rose. "When I was first reading the Bible I came across this passage in Romans titled More than Conquerors...it was like a foundation for me, for my music career. "
Rose sings in the Word of Life church worship band on Sunday mornings, the Forward Youth Ministries worship band on Wednesday nights, and has been working her way around the Tulsa coffee shop scene for the past year. She graduated from Charles Page High School in 2013.
She released her first single, "Another Day Closer" in 2015 and followed it up with "Worth More than Gold" last March. More Than Conquerors is her first full EP and features six songs, including "Nothing Can Separate," which she spent the last several months recording a music video for.
More Than Conquerors was recorded at The Closet Studios in Bixby by producer Kendal Osborne, who has also worked with Sand Springs bands The Fairweather, AfterMidnight, The Moon & Antarctica, and The Darin Shipley Band.
Sand Springs photographer and classmate Holly Felts created the album artwork.
Capital Lights guitarist Brett Admire, who owns a photography/video company, did the production behind the "Nothing Can Separate" video, which will debut Tuesday at 4:00 p.m.
Rose worked with Capital Lights vocalist Bryson Phillips and Run Kid Run guitarist Neil Endicott to workshop the vocals and lyrics, most of which were written in October of last year. "I was going through a lot of changes and I kept going back to that verse. I had to write a song about that."
The "Nothing Can Separate" video incorporates the More Than Conquerors theme of being able to get through anything by placing faith in God. "That's the kind of message I want people to know. They can conquer anything. Jesus's love is so powerful that nothing they're going through can separate them from it."
"Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus Our Lord." Romans 8:37-39.
