THE HAPPENING


Gospel music sensation, JOI MOR has released a brand new single titled “Never Stop”.

Never stop is a song of gratitude birthed from an everyday personal experience with God.

How he is mindful of every little thing we do, how he constantly shows up for us in the nick of time and all the miracles he performs that we sometimes consider as just being lucky.

JACK ROBSON is a Levitical singer-songwriter who writes and crafts music that represents snapshots of life, spirituality and faith, all entwined together.

While the songs that are now part of the album “Curated” have been written over the last decade or so, it was only a year ago that Jack felt the nudge to draw them together – old and newer songs alike – into an album, a soundscape gallery.

“It is because of something specific [God] said to me last year that the concept of this music project even came into being. He asked me to mine through old songs I had saved away on file as demos or that I simply had as a handwritten note in my guitar case. From these He then asked me to start curating, to imagine I was putting together a room in an art gallery. And so that’s what I did, with Him. What did we want on display? What did we want the story to tell? What did we want the themes to provoke and evoke in people? And that was that! This project had thus begun.”

Produced at the Woolly Hat Studios in Surrey, some of these songs have drawn other artists into the journey of writing and recording the lyrics and melodies. “Working with such incredibly talented friends and artists has made the process of creating and producing this album an incredibly special experience.”


Apostle Dr. ADEKAYODE SALAKO, a Mayor of Peace (UN-POLAC) has released his very first much-anticipated song titled “e tobi loba” which was inspired by Psalms 19.

“The song  is a call to thanksgiving; which came as a revelation of the magnanimity of God’s awesomeness. Indeed the faithfulness of God can’t be fathomed. Thanking God for granting me Grace to live above the realm of limitations and constraints in my life, family, and ministry.”

Produced by Ekundayo DBass, the song was released as Adekayode Salako, Pastor of RHIM Dominion Christian Centre, celebrated his birthday.


JAMES FORTUNE has released the highly anticipated single, “Never Let Me Down”. Now residing in Birmingham and a living testimony of God’s grace and forgiveness, Fortune is ready to share his story of redemption and triumph with the world and how he is finally, “Dreaming Again.” GRAMMY Award nominated singer James Fortune understands that if you’re going to preach redemption in the 21st century, you’re going to have to make a production of it, and his albums are a bit like urban gospel hip-hop soul revues all done up in showbiz style on Broadway, complete with Fortune’s spoken, sung, and shouted encouragement.

Fortune’s 2019 LP, Dream Again, and 2020 LP, Dream Again: Live from Rock City, spawned the massive #1 hit, “I Am,” and “Nobody Like Jesus” (feat. Lisa Knowles Smith).


Singer, songwriter and gospel recording artiste, KATE PEE celebrated her birthday by putting out a brand new single titled “Michi Holo” which translates as “I Worship You” in Gbagyi dialect of middle belt, Nigeria.

Produced by her award-winning spouse, Sunny Pee, “Michi Holo” is a sweet-sounding worship song you’ll love on the first listen.

BRIAN FALLON is celebrating the Yuletide season with the release of his all-new holiday album. An intimate collection of classic hymns and carols, Night Divine is available everywhere now via Lesser Known Records/Thirty Tigers.

Produced and recorded by Fallon at his New Jersey home during last year’s quarantine, Night Divine comprises singular renditions of such beloved Christmas carols as “O Holy Night,” “The First Noel,” and “Silent Night,” alongside deeply personal takes on the timeless hymns and spirituals that form his earliest musical memories.

"In some ways, I've been working on this record in my head since I was a kid," says Fallon. "These songs are some of my most cherished musical memories, and I hope that people are able to turn to them not just in the coming weeks, but any time they're in need of a little peace or comfort."

Coming barely a month after the release one of the latest prophetic sound “Miracle” MOSES BLISS shares his new single “iPrepare“, an awakening call to believers all over the world on the coming of the Lord.

Living in the world where distractions and the devil is doing all he can to turn many away from the goal of eternity with the maker, iPrepare is a sound that is relayed as a call to refocus our gaze on the reward that is ahead of us.

For the Lord said I have gone to prepare a place for you and I will return to take you with me. Are you prepared to meet with Him? A time of reflection and consecration, living a ready life awaiting his return is the goal.

When we look back — on our lives, on the last few years, or even just on today — can we trust our memories? Particularly the ones that may have been forged in the fires of chaos, confusion, and conflict? Have we perhaps forgotten as much, or more, than we remember?

That’s the question at the center of the just-released album from veteran singer/songwriter SARA GROVES. What Makes It Through, her 14th album and first collection of original songs since 2015’s Floodplain, is a reflection on an unsettled world, especially in recent years, and a step toward healing.

Groves, an avid reader, was inspired by a number of books in making this album. She cites Kazuo Ishiguro’s The Buried Giant as a source for the album’s prevailing theme.

In Ishiguro’s book, “the two main characters are coming out of a fog of forgetfulness, waking up to their own histories — the ways they have been wounded, and have caused wounds,” says Groves. “The story inspired me to explore the role our memories play in forgiveness and reconciliation. What do we remember, what do we forget, and what do we memorialize? How can we move toward each other when we are telling different versions of what happened?

“We are imperfect witnesses to our own lives and histories,” she continues. “And in the end, it is really hard to tell ourselves the truth.”

Working on both an interpersonal and communal level, the nine songs on What Makes It Through consider the distance to truth and reconciliation. Whatever that distance, it’s never an easy road, but a necessary and worthwhile one.”


PROVIDENT LABEL GROUP NEWS…..After back to back debut #1 songs, CAIN return to take 2022 by storm with their new single ‘The Commission.’ Featured in the theatrical FATHOM event, “Christmas with the Chosen : The Messengers”, this special song reminds us of the true calling on Christians to go and tell the world about Jesus. Let this incredible song encourage you to start the New Year with the right mind-set. Release date 31st December.


Hot on the tails of multiple DOVE Award wins, GRAMMY nominated, internationally renowned artist collective BETHEL MUSIC has released their follow up to last year’s Dove nominated album Peace -Peace, Vol. II. Using bi-lateral audio, with frequencies scientifically proven to reduce stress and anxiety, the twelve songs on the album were recorded with the intention of creating a peaceful atmosphere for listeners to experience God’s presence. Much like the first Peace album, Peace, Vol. II features many familiar Bethel Music artists as well as special guests Phil Wickham, Lauren Daigle, We The Kingdom, and Pat Barrett Peace.

“I’m so thankful for the ocean, the birds of the air, the mountain breeze, a gentle rain and how God brings healing to us through His wonderful creation,” shares Ed Cash, co-producer of the album. “Peace, Vol, II was a joy to work on - combining God’s healing sounds with calming versions of deep songs inspired by the Word of God has been one of my favorite projects to work on. The science behind using bilateral panning to help bring healing to all kinds of trauma is fascinating. We pray God will bring the healing you need as you listen!”


HULVEY is a twenty-two-year-old Brunswick, GA native, went from dropping out of college and working a low income job at Publix to becoming Reach Records latest hip hop rising artist. His label debut EP BRKNHRT released in 2020 and immediately garnered him national praise.

“Behold the morning light, The Son has arrived” are lyrics on the title track of Hulvey’s new album, COMA. The intro song tells the story of a man who has drifted out into the ocean, and falls into a deep sleep, a coma. He is literally in the midst of peril, darkness, and is jarred awake finding himself on the shore. Confused, he realizes he’s awake, but he doesn’t know how he got there. “That’s the story for most believers,” shares Hulvey. “Sometimes we fall asleep on our faith, drift away so far from God that when we eventually realize, we don’t know where we are or how we got there.”

Throughout COMA are similar analogies that Hulvey explains were written for, “any believer or person who feels like they’re asleep or who feels dead inside or feels far away from God or numb.” He describes COMA as “re-awakening, a moment of full self-awareness when you come to realize God is the one who can wake you up.” For Hulvey, so much of his reawakening happened in the middle of pandemic, “When everything shut down and quarantine started, I reawakened. I grew so much with God because I had quiet time. It was me, HIM, the isolation and different moments where I could focus on my relationship with Him because there was nothing else to do."

I spent a lot of time unrooting a lot of things and the isolation drew me closer to HIM. God clearly laid out my mission and reminded me what this was all about. Hulvey shares that his mission is to create music that “helps people to truly come to know God!”


Zambian based, International award winner PAUL PAYNE837  premieres his new single “Chinjako step.”

Chinjako is a bemba word that means “Change.” The release of “Chinjako step” will follow the unstoppable success of his recent joint mixtape TBA with EDM producer Dmstry (as well as emerging winner of the Best International Artist of the year at the GX Awards UK).

The song is a compelling blend of Afro, hip-hop, and dancehall with meaningful lyrics that inspire change and truth. It reminds us of a time where people dream of change at some point in their life but do not change their bad habits. The chorus in particular draws you into a place where you realize that if you want something to change you have to take a step in what you want to do but reminding yourself to put God first and trust in him always.

“His Promises and His Word over our lives are guaranteed in His Name cos What God cannot do, does not exist. We certainly have a Loving Father who can NEVER FAIL” – says Nikki Laoye


Urban Contemporary Gospel group HALF MILE HOME pulls the covers off of the things that go down in the closet! Often known as a place of obscurity and anonymity, the group has repurposed the closet for the place to meet God in secret for prayer, strength and courage to deal with the issues of life. Drawing upon their own personal experiences, the room once known as the hidden den is morphed into the prayer palace and people of faith are challenged to bring all their needs for a one on one audience with the original Master of the Universe.

Matthew 6:6 says, But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. Using scripture as the backdrop, writers Todd Burton and Dave Felder crafted this musical masterpiece to encourage people of faith to seek the Lord for direction and guidance in these days of uncertainty. “Prayer is the answer”, says Burton. If we acknowledge God, he has promised us that he would direct our paths. We wanted to share this powerful truth with everyone who would hear it.
