  • NINE LASHES: WORLD WE VIEW
    variances created just the right sound and combination for the album We just began writing what we felt and the diversity within our band translated itself right onto the record states Jeremy Dunn vocalist The result was their indie debut album Escape Getting discovered and signed to a major label was in the words of Dunn completely a God thing Hoping to increase their visibility via a performance at Gardendale Alabama s annual Magnolia Festival Jon sent a copy of Escape to Joe Posey the festival s promoter Posey liked the album and decided to attend one of the band s concerts to see if they could play live Even more impressed by the band s live performance he forwarded his copy of Escape along with a recommendation to his longtime friend Trevor McNevan of Thousand Foot Krutch Unexpectedly he had to be rushed to the hospital to get his appendix removed Because he had some downtime to recover he had time to listen to our music We thank Trevor s appendix for being discovered laughs Jonathan Jefferson guitarist McNevan shared Posey s enthusiasm passed the album on to Brandon Ebel president and CEO of Tooth Nail Records and in June 2011 Nine Lashes signed with the label Their second album and big label debut World We View was released earlier this year and has already yielded three radio singles First off was Anthem of the Lonely a band self description about taking a stand for your beliefs even if that means that you are standing alone Right now Never want to leave this place Right now See it in a different way So Right now Even if you take me on I ll stand the lonely Stand the lonely This track is filled with strong guitar riffs and thumping

  • REGINA BELLE READY TO GO HIGHER!
    There are some places that Regina Belle can go that others even church folks can t go God said I can trust you and so here we go The new project which features duets with Lowell Pye Men of Standard powerhouse vocalist Kathy Taylor and the one and only Pastor Shirley Caesar is a powerful offering of the best of Regina Belle both personally and vocally Recorded in Houston TX under the watchful direction of Chris Walker my spiritual brother and sounding board Higher is a collection of stunning ballads and it takes a few musical turns that will both surprise and please Belle s loyal and faithful fans The lead single Make An Example Out Of Me is a pure and powerful testimony from Belle who suffered from an illness recently that caused her to have two different surgeries and kept her from traveling for almost a year After I had gone through the surgery I didn t know that God was using me as an example But what I did know was that my illness didn t define my relationship with God but my response definitely would She knew it was time to go higher and Make An Example Out Of Me was Belle s forceful declaration as she prepared to get up Another powerful song on Higher is Mighty In Battle which Regina co wrote This song reminds me of a war cry It s almost like an anthem The cry of Right now now now now now kept speaking to me When Chris Walker heard the playback of what we had put down in the studio he broke it open and put that thing back together and it s anointed Lowell Pye gave the song exactly what it needed The track is strong and solid but with a very percussive groove that s sure to set the church and the charts on fire Songs like Coming Back and God Must Have Been With You are standout tracks that are perfect for the soaring alto that has made Regina Belle a crowd favorite and anointed vessel since her 1987 debut on Columbia Records Coming Back a sweeping ballad of reclamation and restoration is vintage Regina Belle offering her pure vocals over a beautiful melody God Must Have Been With You is also in the vein of the style of the beautiful song stylist These songs are more of who I am lyrically in the gospel realm but musically in line with what God has always done with me Being able to finally record with her musical mentor and spiritual mother Pastor Shirley Caesar is a dream for Belle one that should have been fulfilled on her last offering except that Regina was too nervous to reach out to the anointed storyteller When I saw Pastor Shirley she asked me why I never called I wasn t going to miss that opportunity twice The phone call gave birth to Been So Good To Me which is a combination

  • ANDY CHERRY: NOTHING LEFT TO FEAR
    And Nothing to Fear with its refrain of Why should I worry When Your love surrounds me grounds the album s overarching sense of the comfort and hope that comes with faith the knowledge that worry is needless that God will sustain you But Cherry also funneled the struggle and uncertainty that lingers and the honest questioning that comes with both into Nothing Left to Fear Opening track City of Light a lush melodic rock anthem ended up a treatise to God that asks Him to awaken our hearts and for that to be recognized It started as the expression of a personal breaking point when Cherry was confused and lost and needed to be reminded that a new day would dawn That song and others He Has Done it All about how God has made us complete Beautiful Morning in which Cherry sings I need nothing but Your love aren t just proclamations of devotion but reminders and sources of comfort to Cherry himself To Cherry there s strength and closeness to God in admitting that you haven t figured it all out Nothing Left to Fear is his admission and his invitations to question learn grow and worship with him together The reason I do what I do is because I want to compel people to a deeper walk with God says Cherry Through my work in churches I ve witnessed people for whatever reasons shy away from asking hard questions I think this hesitancy or fear keep them from a closer relationship with God Through these songs I hope to help people work around that fear and find the love He intends for each us He continues There s an understanding that comes when you start looking at yourself through God s eyes and when you re finally able to communicate with Him on an honest level I think you re able to see yourself without a filter He finds inspiration toward that intent in the pretty extensive example of worship music we have in Psalms He takes on a very famous hymn on Nothing Left to Fear Nothing But the Blood repackaging and modernizing it as a propulsive layered sonic celebration Beyond the poetry and praise in the hymn you also find real struggle and real honesty I m sure we ve all had moments where we ve felt like we ve been attacked even forsaken Cherry says The moments where you just want to say My life is really messed up and I think You have let this happen to me God can handle that He s got really broad shoulders and He handle your honesty and confusion even your anger His feelings aren t going to be hurt He doesn t need us to sugarcoat things because He knows what we re feeling So when we dancing around what we re actually feeling towards Him I think we do ourselves a disservice In my writing and playing I hope to point people to a

  • TYE TRIBBETT: GREATER THAN
    tell you what I think about you and then he proceeds to praise God with an attitude that is absolutely joyful and completely infectious That same celebratory spirit echoes throughout Greater Than Tribbett re imagines and revives one of George Harrison s most enduring pop songs and turns it into the buoyant God loving anthem Stayed on You I use to hear that song when I was growing up Tribbett says Three or four years ago I took time and went away to shut down and realign myself with the Lord Every day I had music playing that would keep my mind close to the Lord and every day George Harrison would sneak into my devotions I thought that s weird but I decided to record it Hopefully young people and old alike will be singing these words and realizing that they are making a declaration to the Lord I ve got my mind stayed on you The title track boasts a smooth soulful groove and a potent lyric that reminds believers that our God is greater than anything that can come against us Overcome is a beautiful ballad originally recorded by Jeremy Camp that gets a fresh treatment in Tribbett s capable hands He Turned It is another celebration of God s power and constant faithfulness Throughout the album each song resonates with encouragement as Tribbett testifies to what God has done in his life A native of Camden New Jersey Tribbett s music ministry is the continuation of a powerful family legacy Our church was right there in Camden My father was a pastor but before that my grandmother was the pastor he shares My father played the organ so I started picking on the piano a little My first song was Lean On Me with one finger I added a little harmony to it and the next thing I knew I was playing with both hands by ear so I started playing in church and I loved it That was my passion Young Tye would invite other aspiring singers and musicians to his home and the family garage became the place to jam Then every Sunday I would stand in front of the choir and eventually the music that we were playing in the garage became full instrumentals Tribbett recalls I started putting words to some of the music and I was like Oh my goodness I think we re writing here So we d get together on a Saturday and teach the songs and perform them in church the next day Tribbett s skill as a songwriter musician and choir director began generating a buzz in the area He and his choir began winning national talent competitions Dreamworks recruited Tribbett and his group Greater Anointing for several tracks on the inspirational album that accompanied the animated film The Prince of Egypt including Let Go Let God a collaboration with Mary Mary Tribbett s career further gained momentum when he accompanied a friend who was auditioning for

  • DAVID JOOSTE: ANSWER TO THE CALL
    real strength tracks such as We Have Been Called and Answer To The Call are extremely good and I am sure that if they were secular songs they would get some decent airtime on mainstream radio I do feel that the vocal recordings on the album could have been stronger at times it almost seems as if Jooste is singing to a more subdued backing track than the one we
