NASHVILLE, Tenn.— “Love Is The Compass,” the latest single from Australian singer/songwriter and eOne Christian Music recording artist Nathan Tasker, was recently the #1 Christian song in Australia for three consecutive weeks, according to the TRAA (The Rock Across Australia) Contemporary Top 30 chart.
Co-penned by Tasker and Jason Ingram, “Love Is The Compass” marks Tasker’s fifth #1 hit and eighth Top 10 single in Australia.  Earlier this year, his “Something Beautiful” also topped the TRAA chart for three consecutive weeks. 

“I was going through a real moment of trying to work out if the music I made was going to make a difference,” Tasker says of his inspiration for “Love Is The Compass.”  “I asked Charlie Peacock, ‘What does it mean to be an authentic artist as a believer?’  He turned to me and he said, ‘at the end of the day, you have to let love be the compass.  That’s the thing that inspires and shapes what you do.’”

“Those words were a great reminder of the new reality that Jesus ushers in, as He shows us what love looks like, by ‘humbling Himself to the point of death on a cross’ to save us, to serve us,” Tasker continues.  “And it doesn’t end there for those who trust Him.  The way people will know we follow Him is by the love we have for one another. Love truly is our guide and compass.”

One of Australia’s leading Christian recording artists, Tasker has three best-selling albums and numerous accolades to his credit.  Now living in the U.S., he was named among "2011: New Artists to Watch” by Gospel Music Channel’s watchGMCtv.com.  Tasker was featured at this year’s National Religious Broadcasters Convention and Evangelical Press Association Convention, in addition to performing at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall.  His stateside debut, Home, which includes “Love Is The Compass” and “Something Beautiful,” released in May from eOne Christian Music.
