Fortunate Fall features eleven songs in three movements - one movement each to explore Man's need for God, Christ's humility as the good Shepherd, and the Holy Spirit as Light and Revealer of the Love of God.
In a manner befitting church use, Fortunate Fall explores the mystery posed by St Augustine when he said, "God judged it better to bring good out of evil than to permit no evil to exist." - Enchiridion (c. 420 ), Ch. 27
Influences on Fortunate Fall range from the Anglican choral tradition and harmony-laden hymns of Audrey's youth to Catholic liturgy and charismatic prayer. The title is an alternate translation of the phrase "O happy fault," which appears in the Exsultet: "O truly necessary sin of Adam, destroyed completely by the Death of Christ! O happy fault that earned so great, so glorious a Redeemer!"

Audrey Assad was born in New Jersey in July 1983, and was raised in a religious Protestant household. She started to play the piano aged 2 and spent her youth moving around New Jersey before settling in Scotch Plains until she was 18. Audrey spent her adolescence being homeschooled, working at her father's businesses, and attending church events.
When Assad was 18 her family moved to Florida and she spent the next six years there. At 19 she briefly attended college and supported herself with odd jobs while beginning her musical career, writing and composing songs for the first time. Assad spent the next five years playing at various venues performing original songs and covers.
Before the release of her debut album, Audrey released a three track taster EP called 'For Love Of You', this was a way of introducing people to Sparrow Records' newest female soloist. At the time Audrey was already well known to a number of popular Christian artists, having recorded a song with Jars of Clay for their album, sung vocals on several songs on Matt Maher's 'Alive Again' album, and had her song 'Winter Snow' appear on Chris Tomlin's Christmas album.
Her own debut album, 'The House You're Building', drew attention from CNN and was named Amazon.com's 'Best Christian Music of 2010', while iTunes awarded it 'Breakthrough Album of the Year' for the Christian & Gospel genre."It's so simple and yet so beautiful a picture, to know that my life is witnessed in all its frailty and wonder by God - and all of it, even my most secret suffering, matters. It really does."
