DONALD NIGHT – Broken: A Sermon in a Soundscape

Christian & Gospel artist, DONALD NIGHT, released his soulfully sermonic single, Broken, earlier this year; with old school blues nuances feeding into the melody behind the stridently passionate vocals as they instil hope and resilience in the listener, Broken succeeds in lifting spirits to the same level as NIGHT’s.

With so many people out there self-diagnosing themselves as broken, DONALD NIGHT’s single is a timely triumph as it reminds listeners that giving up is never the only option. Even those who don’t find themselves religiously inclined will find salvation in this single. For the pious, Broken has all the makings of a mood-boosting playlist staple.

Broken is now available to stream on YouTube.

Prayer Can Be Fun: Texas-based Christian hip-hop artist BC reminds the kids of the classic dinner table tradition with ‘Say Grace’

As she realizes that getting kids attention with all the distractions and over-stimulation from the internet that these young minds are facing, BC thanks the plate that we are blessed to receive on her new single aimed to help the youth stay grounded with ‘Say Grace‘.

BC is a soulful Christian hip-hop artist who is based in Bryan, Texas. She makes an introspective blend of music that speaks about important messages from the Bible, that have made her so inspired to express through her chosen art form.

The mission is to teach Bible stories and Christian morals to the next generation.” ~ BC

Rapped with a smooth atmosphere and educational bars that are consistent and full of energy that only wants to help the youth – as their valuable attention can be swayed so easily with modern technology – this is a take-time-to-give-thanks cue we can’t forget.

Say Grace” is more than a sing-a-long at the dinner table. With everything grabbing children’s attention these days, it’s a fight to help them stay on course. “Say Grace” was carefully and creatively designed to plant the seed of Jesus into as many children as possible. BC’s overall goal with her upcoming track is to remind kids to Say Grace and thank God for blessing them with their daily bread.” BC

Say Grace‘ from Bryan, Texas-based Christian hip-hop artist BC, is that true message about giving thanks for what we have in life. Created as a way of reminding the kids of today about core values in this wild world full of temptation, this is a soulful single full of good intentions and love.

Embrace the good vibes in Beanie Duhh’s electronically cathartic single “Open to Christ”

https://open.spotify.com/track/2ACIUxinUs4f065JVOExfy?si=Q6CgJxJeR3KU0Bm9gUKdbQ

Prepare to have your preconceptions about Christian music shattered by up and coming artist Beanie Duhh’s Electronic hit “Open to Christ”.

Open to Christ is just one of the singles which you’ll find on the artist’s mould-breaking 2020 album “A Reflection” which provides 42-minutes of cathartic aural escapism.

Open to Christ has the perfect tone, momentum and vibe to feed you tranquil aural ecstasy. The instrumental mix never needed lyrics to convey the feel-good essence of the soundscape. Beanie Duhh’s intent when he crafted the short and sweet ambient jam is all too apparent in the deftly crafted melodies.

We’ll definitely be putting Beanie Duhh on our radar to see what follows their seminal release.

Artist Mek shows her spirit with new release ‘Number One’

Christian and worship R&B artist Artist Mek has released her new praise-filled single ‘Number One’ – along with a music video. 

Artist Mek shows her fans what it means to sing a song of praise in ‘Number One’. A delicately chorded piano sets up an R&B groove that feels inspired by the likes of early Destiny’s Child. Her vocal performance is equally inspiring as she powers through lyrics inspired by her faith and her own life. 

It’s a track that’s sure to inspire those who believe in the power of faith, and it’s a nicely recorded piece – even if it doesn’t hit number one, you should still check it out. 

You can check out Number One on Artist Mek’s YouTube channel here.

Marcus Brookins – So Will I: Resoundingly Visceral Pop Rock

The amount of conviction found in the title to Marcus Brookins’ latest Pop Rock single “So Will I” is a drop in the ocean to what is in store for you if you hit play on this compelling feat of Christian & Gospel.

The thought-evoking lyrics, the sheer sincerity of the vocal delivery, and resounding genre-transcending instrumental arrangement which defies the concept of genres will leave you arrested at each progressive evolution in the soundscape. And those are just a few of the reasons why you should embark on the epic aural journey this 7-minute track will take you on.

I can guarantee your soul will feel lighter by the time you get to the outro. It’s not only instrumental build-ups which you’ll experience as So Will I progresses. The emotion consistently amplifies before leaving you with the more quiescent melodic instrumental fills to give the lyrics chance to truly resonate. Radio-Ready tracks don’t really come much more powerful than this.
