WALDORF, MD, September 18 – Christian and Gospel singer Amy Lloyd released today a new collaborative digital single, “Here Is Your God (Dylan Galvin Remix),” that was created virtually during the COVID-19 stay-at-home order.
The track is available for downloading and streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, and other popular music services. Listeners can visit https://amylloydmusic.hearnow.com to find a link to the single on their favorite platforms.
“Here is Your God (Dylan Galvin Remix)” started as a quarantine project. Dylan Galvin, a Southern Maryland native now living in Los Angeles, CA, added lead guitar, keyboard, and percussion and then remixed the song. The original, a track on Amy’s freshman album All I Need was released in 2013, was recorded at Nightsky Studios in Waldorf, MD, by audio engineer Matt Hinshaw. Antony Zwerdling played acoustic guitar.
“This original song was a track that didn’t receive much attention on my first album,” said Amy. “Dylan is such a creative musician. I approached him about remixing the song, and he did an amazing job. We were excited to produce this single from opposite coasts during the stay-at-home order.”
In August, Amy hosted a pre-release premiere streaming event of the single with a lyrics music video created by Christopher Apperson of Waldorf, MD. The video is available for churches to use for their services and can be viewed on YouTube at https://youtu.be/hA1U-R8_l7Q.
The song, written by Pastor Michael Foster of Silver Spring, MD, includes references to one of Amy’s favorite Bible verses, Isaiah 40:31: “but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”
“It seems that during these difficult times, we could all use a little more renewing of our strength,” said Amy. “I hope this song turns our hearts to the comfort and hope that only God can provide.”
