What's Goin' Down? (January 2022 Edition)
January 23rd, 2022
Hello humans! I can't believe I've been in Austin almost a year! As a result of COVID, I suppose I haven't connected with as many people locally as I'd have liked to... but I've been blessed to have some pretty cool opportunities since I've been here; opportunities to produce artists, play a few shows, lead worship, and meet some very nice people.Madler Music MattersSONGBack in 2020 I wrote a song...

Happy 1st Birthday Collective Worship!
March 13th, 2021
Y’all, I can’t believe it. It’s been ONE YEAR since the release of the Collective Worship album.

August 26th, 2020
Very excited to announce that Milo Deering, Mark Herrera (of Jesus Painter Ministries), and I have collaborated to create a video for my new song “Peace Prayer”! Mark did a live painting while Milo and I played through this acoustic song, and I’m so moved by the final video (beautifully assembled by Kyle Isenhower of Isenhower Productions). The video and song itself with both go live on 9/4/2020, ...
Collective Worship is a corporate, vertical worship album for the church. It's a collection of polished studio songs and authentic, raw, live recordings featuring worshipers from across the region. The songs range from adoration to lament, joy to desperation, faithfulness to faithlessness - all within the context of both original music and reimaginings of old hymns.
There is such beauty in worshiping collectively – across denominations, cultures, ages, and life seasons. Everyone brings their own personal stories – of victory and defeat, joy and sorrow, anxiety and peace – and yet we can set those things aside, declaring with one voice that Jesus is better. -Matt Adler
