Celebrated singer/songwriter Matthew West has begun work on his latest project, The Story of Your Life, to release fall 2010. A natural continuation of his best-selling 2008 album, Something to Say, West’s upcoming project will tell the real life stories of his fans.

“Something to Say was written in the hopes of encouraging others that they really do have something to say...they matter,” says West. “God has created everyone to live a life that will tell a story of His love to the world in a unique and amazing way. I see now that these lyrics from the last record were pointing the way to where I would be heading with the next album: Your life is the song that you sing, and the whole wide world is listening.”

Beginning early March, West began collecting stories via his web site. In a month’s time, he has received thousands of submissions from fans sharing the most important moments of their lives. These stories will be the foundation for those songs on The Story of Your Life.

“Several months ago I had a vision of the inside of a cabin with thousands of stories from people printed out and spread all over the tables and floors and couches and chairs,” West explains. “I had a vision that I would be there in the cabin, reading the stories, praying for inspiration, and writing like crazy.”

That vision became a reality, as West spent the month of March in a cabin in Tennessee reading stories and writing The Story of Your Life. He will continue collecting stories and writing songs through late April.

“I’m excited to see what kinds of songs come out of this experience,” says West. “Even more, I am honored to share this journey with my fans.”

West’s latest single “Save A Place,” a follow up to his most played Christian song of 2009 “The Motions,” is currently climbing the charts at Christian AC radio. In addition to a music video, available for viewing at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_WynYBz-Ao, the single has prompted a web site (http://www.matthewwest.com/save-a-place-for-me) where fans can share memories of lost loved ones.

GRAMMY Award nominated singer/songwriter Matthew West catapulted onto the Christian music scene in 2003 with his debut single, “More,” the most played Christian AC song of 2003. The multi-Dove Award nominee has since released three critically-acclaimed recordings, Happy (2003), History (2005), and Something to Say (2008), while dominating radio as the most played Christian artist of 2003, 2008, and 2009, according to Radio & Records. All of West’s singles have charted in the Top 10, including memorable hits “Only Grace,” “History,” “Next Thing You Know” and “The Motions.”

Most recently, West's single "The Motions" held the No. 1 position on both the Christian AC radio chart for 14 consecutive weeks and the Soundscan Christian Digital Chart for 15 weeks. The song was ranked the fourth biggest song of the decade according to the 2009 Billboard Christian Year-End chart. Additionally, West was asked to pen the theme song for VeggieTales’ 2009 Christmas DVD release, Saint Nicholas – A Story Of Joyful Giving. West recorded “Give This Christmas Away” with best-selling, award-winning artist Amy Grant, who performed the radio single alongside Matthew on Fox News programs “Huckabee” and “FOX & Friends.”
