Slow Revival (1994)

Updated: Dec 14, 2023

Slow Revival is the seventh studio album by Christian singer - songwriter Bryan Duncan, released in 1994 on Myrrh/Word Records. The album is produced by Dan Posthuma with musician/producer Michael Omartian co-producing on three tracks.

Continuing the success of his previous album Mercy, Slow Revival is a more mature adult contemporary sound and contained more Christian radio hit songs like the lead single and music video "Traces of Heaven," "Things Are Gonna Change" and "United We Stand" featuring guest vocals by the Christian R&B vocal group Anointed. All three songs topped the Christian AC chart. Keyboard arrangements were once again handled by Omartian, Robbie Buchanan and Peter Wolf.

The album peaked at number 5 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart. In 1995, Duncan was nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year and Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year at the 1995 GMA Dove Awards.
