Pat Barrett is the writer of the RIAA certified Platinum “Good Good Father,” a worship pastor, and one of the primary vocalists with Atlanta based worship collective Housefires. Barrett’s new solo album puts him on the cusp of something new— a new work, a new thing God is doing. The future is not completely clear, but one thing is certain—when Barrett and his wife Meg had that initial conversation about a solo record, she made a prediction: “She said, ‘I think you’re going to feel things in a different way. It’s going to make you come alive,’” recalls Barrett. “She was completely right.”
