Music runs through SCOTTY INMAN’S veins. A second-generation vocalist, Scotty’s music career has taken him around the world and allowed him the share the message of Christ on stages that many only dream of. While his nearly two decade tenure with the fan-favorite Triumphant Quartet has afforded him opportunities and accolades too numerous to count, the 4-time BMI awarded singer/songwriter found himself with a considerable catalog of songs personal to him; songs about faith, family and life. These songs birthed the inspiration behind his debut solo release, Anywhere Jesus Is.

“I have been blessed to have cuts by not only Triumphant, but several other artists within the genre. However, I realized that some of the songs were messages that I needed to share myself,” shares Scotty Inman. “A solo project is the perfect opportunity to speak my heart and produce music that might not fit the mold of what I do with Triumphant, but I’m excited to branch out and let listeners get a glimpse into another side of who I am!”

he first single and radio release from the project, entitled ‘Grow Up Slow,’ conveys a father’s wish for his children in a way in which every parent or grandparent can identify. The accompanying music video features the subjects of the song; Scotty’s children. “I wrote ‘Grow Up Slow’ specifically about my two kids, however I feel as though it is the heart of every parent. Getting to, not only write this song with Sonya Isaacs Yeary & Becky Isaacs Bowman for my kids, but also being able to feature them in this music video has been incredible,” adds Inman.   https://www.scottyinman.com

ANDY FLANNAGAN, one of the UK’s top worship artists, has released ‘Not Made for the Harbour’, a new song commissioned by the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity (LICC) and Thy Kingdom Come.

Perfect for Sunday worship, it uses the metaphor of sailing out of the harbour to encourage Christians to join in God’s work in the world rather than just in our safe Christian bubbles – leaving his mark in town halls and factories, fields, and offices, markets and schools.

It’s a call to be bold in the power of the Spirit, to trust him even though life can be ‘cold and dark’, and to pray that ‘this worn world would be transformed’ as he works through us in our ordinary places.

The song is released with a fun animated music video showing what that might look like in practice, as God works through three Christians – a factory employee, a school pupil, and a local councillor – to bring justice, mercy, and reconciliation in their everyday contexts.

Andy Flannagan commented: ‘This song is all about joining in God’s work for the benefit of the people he’s put us alongside and the places he’s put us. Because we have a Saviour who left the safety of heaven to change the world – and he invites us to follow his example.”   https://andyflan.com/

On Friday, June 17, GRAMMY award-winning music collective MAVERICK CITY MUSIC and 16-time GRAMMY winner KIRK FRANKLIN will bring the injustices around mass incarceration – and the voices of 1,300 inmates – to centerstage with the release of their collaborative album KINGDOM Book 1, out June 17th via Tribl Records and Fo Yo Soul Entertainment / RCA Inspiration.

Taking the idea of “prison performance” to another level, the genre-transcending, 11-track project made entirely from the grounds of a Florida prison, features Maverick City Music and Franklin recording the experience alongside more than ninety-percent of those who remain incarcerated at the location.

Joined by men from every walks of life – different gangs, races and backgrounds – ‘Kingdom Book 1’ evolved from an unfiltered message of love and universal acceptance and became a passionate, powerful movement that embodies the collective’s core beliefs of inspiring and helping others.

“I think this album is for every fan that loves music, and our hope is that these songs and the stories behind them will serve as a way to raise awareness to the challenges that people face everyday – many of which are forgotten about,” Maverick City Music’s Jonathan Jay explains. “For me, the most impactful part of this experience was the prisoners’ reaction to simply being remembered as humans. It was an overwhelming sense of gratitude and excitement that carried through every day we spent with these men. It was unbelievable, and I think if more people would just become aware of these feelings, they would want to help find a solution for the issues that come with incarceration.”  https://www.maverickcitymusic.com

Tennessee-based worship leader and songwriter COREY VOSS returns with a brand new EP. Looking for the Light features four brand new worship songs, including "Hold On" a song that is gaining traction with radio.

Voss speaks of the new record, "I've been sitting with these songs for a while now and to be honest I've been nervous to release this project because it's not what people are accustomed to hearing from me...(a studio project rather than live). It's a side of worship I've wanted to explore for a long time. I've asked myself and the Lord a lot of questions and wondered how it would be received. It's been a vulnerable process!

"Not only is this project important for my own journey of healing from a hard season but I believe God is going to use it to breathe hope into people who have had the wind knocked out of them. I'm praying that it speaks to those who have felt crushed by their season of life. I've wanted to be of help to those who don't know where their feet are going to land and who are trusting God for a new beginning. So here comes LOOKING FOR THE LIGHT."   https://coreyvoss.com


American Music Award-winning, GRAMMY-nominated pop vocal group AVALON has long been admired for show-stopping, mega-hits like “Testify To Love,” “Can’t Live A Day,” and “Adonai.” While these iconic compositions have shaped their legacy and remain close to their hearts, the members of Avalon – Janna Long, Greg Long, Jody McBrayer, and Dani Rocca-Herbert – are ready to explore a new musical direction.

With the release of a self-titled, brand-new project, the group has officially announced a name change – Avalon Worship.

Produced by Don Koch, this new Red Street Records project – Avalon Worship – reflects who they are as individuals as well as a worship collective.

“For the past eleven years Greg and I have been staff worship leaders at a local church north of Houston,” Janna says. “Jody’s also a staff worship leader at a church in Ohio. Dani became a worship leader right out of high school. Leading worship has been a natural progression in our personal lives, so it made sense to extend that into our recording world.” “We’re all personally in a place where we need the connection only genuine worship can bring,” Jody adds. “There’s real healing and safety in the presence of God. These songs are where we are as adults and as Christians and believers.”   https://www.instagram.com/avalon.worship/

Nashville based Indie pop duo, CLEMENCY, return with a new single inspired by the beauty of God’s creation. “Amazed,” available everywhere now, invites listeners on a journey of wonder. The soaring vocal melodies and western tinged guitar conjure up an adventure under the stars, while its heart-stirring lyrics point listeners’ eyes to the sky in awe of its creator.

“There is nothing that can invoke wonder and awe in the human heart quite like the night sky.” Says Jason. “Laying under the stars always gives me a sense of place and purpose and at the same time makes me feel incredibly small. When I look up at that beautiful, vast expanse, these words are whispered in my ear, ‘The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands,’ and, ‘What is man that you are mindful of him?’”

The song serves as another chapter in the cinematic narrative that Jason and Paul endeavour to tell with their music — a soundtrack for the voyage of the human heart in this life. “The songs we write are reflections of the life, love, hope and beauty we seek” said Paul and Jason.   https://www.facebook.com/Clemencyduo/
