The Psalms Project is excited to announce that our new album, Volume 3: Psalms 21-30, due out later this year, will feature guitar legend Phil Keaggy as a lead guitarist on Psalms 22 and 26 and worship movement pioneer Jeff Deyo (formerly of Sonicflood) as lead vocalist on Psalm 21.
Phil Keaggy is a world-renowned guitarist who has been performing worldwide for over 50 years and has released over 50 albums. He frequently appears on guitar publications’ lists of the world’s greatest guitarists. The two-time Grammy nominee and a seven-time Dove Award winner just released a new album, All at Once, on September 1st, 2016.

After leaving Sonicflood, Deyo release three solo albums on Gotee Records, including the #1 radio singles “More Love, More Power” (featuring TobyMac) and “Bless the Lord” (featuring Rita Springer).
