Kim Walker-Smith & Husband Skyler Top Charts With New Album ‘Home’

Kim Walker Smith & Husband Skyler Top Charts With New Album Home

Eighteen months in the making, Kim Walker-Smith and Skyler Smith released their highly anticipated and first musical collaboration, ‘Home,’ a worshipful, modern Folk-Pop collection from Jesus Culture Music. Already gathering critical acclaim, the album spent all week on top of the iTunes “Christian/Gospel” chart while climbing all the way to No. 8 on the iTunes overall “Top Albums” chart. The album also lands this week at No. 1 on the overall Christian/Gospel Current Digital Albums and Worship Album Billboard retail charts.

Produced by Jeremy Edwardson and Jason Borneman, the music of ‘Home’ was carved out of Kim and Skyler’s unique love story, the worship life they’ve aspired to as individuals and the ministry they’ve shared as part of Jesus Culture. ‘HOME’ explores the intimacy of time alone and together in the presence of God, and that sense of belonging as a universal metaphor for our relationship God pursues with his children.

“Calling this album ‘Home’ took on so many meanings as the project progressed,” explains Skyler. “We’ve always traveled so much, we’ve known that ‘Home’ would have to be wherever we found ourselves. We didn’t want to force anything, but we wanted to come together as a couple and say something personal and honest about our lives in relationship with each other and in relationship with God.”

“From the beginning of our marriage,” Kim adds, “we’ve been very intentional about blending our lives, taking every opportunity to be 100% completely together, so this album really is a defining moment for us, a creative endeavor that represents who we are as a couple and as worshipers who desire intimacy with our Creator.”

A studio recording where 11 of the 12 tracks were written collaboratively by Skyler and Kim, ‘Home’ is a departure from the live, corporate worship experience captured on the Jesus Culture records, on which Kim’s voice is most often associated. This more intimate offering is already resonating with critics.

Widely known for her passionate and contagious pursuit of God’s Presence in worship, Kim, along with her husband Skyler, lead, teach and impart worship around the world. Named one of the “Emerging Leaders of Tomorrow’s Church” by Charisma magazine (2010), Kim’s rendition of the John Mark McMillan song, ‘How He Loves,’ has been viewed over 9.5 million times on YouTube, while her version of Brian Johnson’s ‘Where You Go I Go’ has over 4 million views.
