Christian Singer/Songwriter Yvonne Hartman has been inspiring believers with her guitar and heartfelt songs for years now. Releasing five albums since her start in the Christian music industry 10 years ago, she describes her musical style as “inspirational/situational”, a genre which conveys lyrics containing real life situations accented by a faith-based focus. Celebrating her decade in music ministry, Yvonne is releasing a brand new single, “The Journey”. The Christmas song, produced by Kevin McNoldy (Dave Matthews, Mary Chapin Carpenter), dropped on September 30, 2016 and is available on digital music outlets including iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.
Yvonne’s creativity shines in the music and the words of the new single. The song centers around the journeys that each person involved in Jesus’ birth encounters. Key people like Mary, Joseph, The Innkeeper, The Wisemen, and The Shepherds each tell their stories and how Jesus’ beginnings on this earth impacted their lives. “The Journey”, an up-tempo, festive track, showcases Yvonne’s guitar skills and vocal talents along with her gift for songwriting. The message, the birth of Christ The King, is a great reminder of the real meaning of Christmas.
A singer all of her life, Yvonne Hartman could always be found in the church choir. She also lent her vocals to her high school chorus. Following that, she trained vocally taking singing lessons and appearing in school musicals. It wasn’t until later in life when she decided to pick up the guitar. Her father played when she was a child and she recalls fond memories of songs being played by the campfire. Her path to playing was not a straight one, however, and through many trials – and some divine intervention – she became quite skilled at the instrument. Since that time, she stepped into the studio and delivered 5 CDs, her latest being ReMade. She’s released two concept music videos, “I Need You” and “Not Ashamed”. Yvonne is currently a member of her church’s worship team. She and her husband, a dairy farmer, live on a farm in Pennsylvania.
Here’s what people are saying about the music ministry of Yvonne Hartman:
“Yvonne Hartman is indeed ‘The Real Deal’…about as fresh and genuine as they come. She truly wears her faith on her sleeve, in clear view, and is a living testimony of what is possible when you put your complete faith and trust in Jesus Christ. As she very clearly sings and coveys via her song “More Like Him”, true victory, along with the ability to overcome whatever life throws at us, can only be achieved if, like Christ, we are willing to ‘Dine with sinners, just like Jesus did, forgive our Brothers, forgive and be forgiven. Love our neighbors…love like Jesus loved, to be more like Him’. Kinda sums up Yvonne’s whole outlook on life, love, and her entire music ministry.” – Rev. John A., Philadelphia, PA
“Wonderful uplifting music! Yvonne clearly puts her heart and Jesus Christ into every one of her songs. I love listening to my kids sing along to her music in the back seat of the car or when they are getting ready for school! Her music is relatable and always reminds me to put my focus back on God. Without a doubt, one of our favorite albums!!!” –Stacy H., Reading, PA
“She has the most beautiful voice. I could sit and listen to her for hours.” –Sue G., Lenhartsville, PA
