Keep No Secrets (1984)

Updated: Mar 7


Keep No Secrets is the second release and national debut album by Christian singer -songwriter Morgan Cryar, released in late 1984 on Star Song Records.


Keep No Secrets was, according to Mark Allen Powell on his book Encyclopedia of Contemporary Christian Music, "an acoustic pop masterpiece." There was nothing acoustic about the album. It was more of a contemporary pop album featuring programming and drum machine arrangements. Produced by Jonathan David Brown who is best known for producing albums by Twila Paris and Petra. The album featured radio hits "I Get Carried Away" and "A Few of My Old Friends" and did moderately well on Christian radio. It also features the ballad "Holy Fire" with guest vocals by Jayne Farrell of the husband and wife duo Farrell and Farrell and written by Cryar and Paris. The album has not been released on CD. The tracks "Holy Fire," "I Get Carried Away" and "A Few of My Old Friends" are the only tracks to appear on CD and digitally on his 1998 compilation album What Sin? A YouTube link to listen to the album is posted below this article.
