Consumed by Fire stopped by our Song Discovery studios and recorded an acoustic version of their successful radio single, First Things First. The song reached No. 7 on the Christian radio charts and continues to climb and represents the first top 10 single for Red Street Records. They also released their long-awaited EP, which is also titled First Things First, and is now available everywhere.
Band member Jordan Ward shares his enthusiasm for the EP, saying,
“We’re so fired up for this collection of songs to be released! We’re just praying and believing that people will be filled with hope and that their faith will be stirred as they sing these songs over themselves and their families!”
The six-song project compiles previously released tracks It’s a Yes, Goodbye Ole Me, First Things First, and Hope Says, and includes new tracks Walk with Jesus and a newly recorded piano version of First Things First. Additionally, a new lyric video is available today for Walk With Jesus, which can be viewed below.
Produced by Scotty Wilbanks, the EP sings of an undeniable hope and trust in Jesus, giving listeners a fresh anthem of faith through powerful lyrics and sound melodies. “Red Street Records is excited to release Consumed By Fire’s new music to the world!” Red Street’s Chief Operating Officer, Kelly Rich, shares. “The Ward brothers are a trio of astounding songwriters, vocalists, and musicians, and consumers are in for an incredible listening experience.” Label VP of Christian Artist Development, Ronn Tabb, adds,
“The Ward family’s incredible life of ministry has helped shape who Consumed By Fire is today. The songs they write and perform reflect their authentic desire to encourage people in their faith and their walk with Christ.”
Consumed By Fire also received their first-ever Dove Awards nomination for Goodbye Ole Me as Rock/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year. Written by band members Caleb and Jordan Ward alongside Red Street Recording artist Iveth Luna, the single has attained over one million lifetime streams and continues to climb.
