Review | Aaron Shust: Anything Worth Saying

When we first featured Aaron Shust at worship.com back in 2004, his debut CD Anything Worth Saying had not yet been picked up by Brash Music and was still largely undiscovered.  And when we noted in 2005 that the song My Savior My God was a good song you might expect to sing during Sunday worship services, the CD had not yet hit the Christian music charts.

Now, in 2006, songs from this CD have rocketed to the top of the Billboard Christian Music charts, and Aaron has toured and/or opened for major artists including Nichole Nordeman, Shane & Shane, Casting Crowns, and Jars of Clay.

Anything Worth Saying is one of those rare CDs where every track is a keeper, yet each song is different in style and sound.   Passion fans will be interested to know that Candi Pearson (Passion:OneDay) accompanies Aaron on one track (One Day).

Bio Info

Like every other boy from Western Pennsylvania, Aaron Shust had aspirations to play for the Steelers. His backup plan was to be a professional beach volleyball player or surfer. But the beach scene isn’t happening in "the Burgh" and at his size, pro football wasn’t going to happen either. However, God had His own backup plan. Aaron sang his first solo in church when he was 4, started playing piano when he was 7, wrote his first song at 10, and picked up the guitar at 14. He studied music at Toccoa Falls College and loves to hear people worship God from the depths of their hearts, whether he is simply leading them from a piano or guitar, or with a full band. 

For the last five years, Aaron Shust has served as a full-time staff member and worship leader at Perimeter Church, a progressive, 27-year-old congregation in Atlanta, GA. Beyond that community, Aaron leads worship throughout the United States at new churches, adult retreats and youth camps, placing his songwriting fingers firmly on the pulse of the church’s devotion.

His debut project, Anything Worth Saying, was recently released to rave reviews with his first radio single, “Matchless,” quickly becoming one of Christian radio’s most added songs. Shust is managed by Blanton Harrell Cooke and Corzine, and joins the company’s roster of best-selling, award-winning artists and authors such as Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Frank Peretti, Joy Williams, Bebo Norman and Point of Grace. Additionally, Aaron recently signed an exclusive booking agreement with Third Coast Artist Agency (MercyMe, Jeremy Camp, David Crowder).
