Popular Christian rocker Todd Agnew is recording his fourth album at Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tenn. with producer John Hampton, who won a Grammy last year for his work at Ardent with The White Stripes. Agnew remarked that his new album, entitled Better Questions, is his most adventurous production so far.
Agnew cites studio owner John Fry, producer Hampton, engineer Curry Weber and assistant engineer Adam Hil as indispensable in achieving his goal.
“The theme for this album is that I have better questions than I do answers,” says Agnew, “and that that’s okay. It’s okay not to know everything; the questions themselves are important.”
The album features some of Memphis’ finest players: Steve Selvidge (guitars), Kim Trammel (drums), Dave Smith (bass), Jack Holder (guitars) and Jonathan Chu (strings). The record is slated for release July 17 on Ardent Records, with an accompanying DVD.
