Abby Robertson has recently released her brand new single "Sanctuary (Live from Ocean Way)." The song was recorded live at the famed Ocean Way Nashville Studio. Based on Psalm 150:1, the song speaks of finding God as a safe place when the world around is falling apart. Robertson reveals that song came from a difficult time when  her dad was suffering from a major health problem.

"I remember my mom reaching for a Bible when my dad was struggling with this health issue and randomly flipping to Psalm 150:1, which says, 'Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens.' Me, my Mom, brother & Dad all praised God in that moment--a moment that would later become this song." 

You gave me a place
Where I could find rest
Your love gave me strength
When I ran out of breathNobody knows me like you do
Jesus, I run to youWherever I am There You are
Whenever I fall it's into your arms
When clouds around me gather
You are my shelter 

"Music is memory muscle," Abby explains, "so I just remembered how to sing things and then I'd remember how to actually speak and read things....That's how it all started. It was me having a struggle, me loving music and [working through] that struggle with music."  

It is Roberston's goal to always craft music that goes deeper --- music that connects us with our struggles and with God. "My goal in life is to write music that resonates with everybody," says Abby, "not just that feel-good music, which is amazing, but a lot of times I need people to go deeper with me, and I need them to be real and tell me their struggles and tell me what they've been through." 

This is what listeners will find in Abby's songs--an honest voice, unafraid of telling the truth and pointing others toward it. 

As she says, "I'm a human, and I'm going through it, and I love Jesus, and that's what gets me through."
