With two singles topping the inspirational and adult contemporary (AC) Christian radio respectively, Essential
Records’ band FFH has been greeting crowds across the country during performances and special appearances during the August 21
street week of both their new CD, Have I Ever Told You, and their book debut, Far From Home: Stories From the Road.
“Watching Over Me” rose quickly to the number one spot on AC radio, followed by a two-week run at number one for “On My Cross” at
inspirational radio. “Watching Over Me” is also in the top five at Christian hits radio (CHR). Both songs were penned by FFH lead
vocalist and primary songwriter Jeromy Deibler, who wrote or co-wrote nearly every song on the new project.
FFH kicked off a multi-week promotional tour with in-store visits and pre-sale events in Knoxville, TN, and Columbia, SC, in the
weekend prior to the release of the new album and book. Family Christian Stores, who hosted the Columbia event, noted that FFH’s
appearance was their largest in-store to date.
Approximately 3,000 people packed Ridgemar Mall in Ft. Worth, TX, on the projects’ street date of August 21 to see a free lunch time
performance by the band. FFH signed autographs for nearly an hour following the “Brown Bag Lunch” concert sponsored by
award-winning Christian radio station KLTY-FM.
“It was amazing to look out in the mall and see so many people,” said Brian Smith of FFH. “But the coolest part was when we all sang
praise and worship songs for ten minutes at the end of the set. It was unbelievable!”
In the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, FFH also visited the studios of nationally televised morning show “At Home Live with Chuck and Jenni,”
where they made their debut appearance on the show performing their number one hit “On My Cross.” In addition to showcasing their
trademark vocal harmonies as Christian pop favorites, Jeromy, Jennifer, Michael and Brian also discussed being first time authors,
each having contributed personal stories to Far From Home: Stories >From the Road.
