Aaron Shust is in relentless pursuit of beauty, and it is that which lies behind his musical experimentation, his writing, his public ministry, and his tenacious grip on God’s word. It has driven his music since the beginning, well before his early success when he was named the 2007 Songwriter of the Year and New Artist of the Year and wrote the Song of the Year, “My Savior My God.”
His muses are a deep love for the Bible, instilled in him at an early age, the glory of creation, and the nurturing community of his family. He loves the promises of God, which have carried him through diagnoses of Down Syndrome and chronic illness for two of his sons as well as the deaths of loved ones, and have inspired his recording of the anthems of faith “My Hope is in You,” which spent 14 weeks at #1, and “No One Higher,” as well as resolved declarations of worship like “Ever Be,” which debuted at #3 on the NCA chart.
Shust’s commitment to the fulfillment of the beauty of the Gospel has led him around the world to lead worship with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. With Will Graham, the artist has traveled to Canada, Romania, Hawaii and Scotland. His travels yield a celebration of global sounds, such as ukuleles, bagpipes, brass, and Middle Eastern percussion, all featured in his new album, “Nothing to Fear.” He has spent considerable time in ministry and collaboration in Israel, where he again declares God’s promises for his people in the song, “Zion.” In 2014, Aaron recorded his Christmas album, “Unto Us,” with the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, which has been hailed a “musical masterpiece.”
Despite Aaron’s celebration in worship that leads him to far-flung corners of the world, his heart is at home in Nashville, Tennessee, with his bride Sarah and their sons Daniel, Nicky, and Michael.
