HERITAGE, HYMNS OF OUR FAITH is the result of a shared vision between a singer and a musician. Sebastian Demrey & Jimmy Lahaie want to share their own musical heritage by revisiting the most beautiful hymns of the past centuries.

Wishing to keep a more organic sound, the duo decides to use acoustic guitars, mandolin, acoustic piano, string section, percussions and an upright bass. The project also features fellow canadian artist Genevieve Falleur and a renowned Montreal cellist, Carla Antoun who notably recorded albums by Celine Dion.

Our goal with this project is to highlight the lyrical and musical treasures that have impacted the faith of our parents and generations before us. Although we know that this music will touch the older generation,, we hope to reach the younger believers as well so that they can also discover these wonderful hymns.  »

Among the selected titles include I Surrender All, What a friend we have in Jesus, Amazing Grace, Nearer My God To Thee, Blessed Assurance and many more.

In the past 5 years, the Canadian duo has released 3 french albums, 1 Christmas album, one live DVD, and has been touring extensively in the french countries. After being encouraged by believers in the US and in the UK, they felt that it was now the time to release an English version of the project, the language in which most of the hymns were originally written.

Both Sebastian and Jimmy live in Montreal, Canada, and serve as musicians and worship leaders in their church.
