JASON GRAY RELEASES LONG-AWAITED REORDER EP TODAY

JASON GRAY RELEASES LONG-AWAITED REORDER EP TODAY

18-song Order Disorder Reorder LP Releases Oct. 23

American Songwriter Features Gray As He Becomes

Centricity Music’s Most Active Touring Artist

Centricity Music recording artist Jason Gray has combined insightful and heartfelt lyrics with infectious pop melodies for over a decade. This bestselling, multiple No. 1 and Top 5 hitmaking songwriter releases his long-awaited, seven-song Reorder EP today (Oct. 2) to digital and streaming outlets globally. The EP is the third volume of his 18-song Order Disorder Reorder LP that releases Oct. 23.

Part one of his new album, Order, released just over a year ago, features the Top 10 Billboard Christian AC chart radio hit “I’m Gonna Let It Go” and explores topics “when things are more or less going the way you hope.” Part two, Disorder, released March 20, features the Top 20 Billboard AC Indicator chart hit single “Remind Me You’re Here” and is a group of honest, transformative songs about when order falls apart. The final chapter of Gray’s new album, Reorder, features the hopeful declaration “Right on Time” and the radio single “Glory Days,” and is about coming out the other side of our hardship “as wiser, stronger, more humble and compassionate versions of ourselves.”

“I released the Order EP a year ago. Then, as fate would have it, the Disorder EP released the week we went into national lockdown (sorry everybody—I didn’t realize how much power I had). Since then, I’ve been working hard to do my part and get Reorder finished and out into the world to see if it’ll help,” laughs Gray.

“All joking aside, I do hope the music is helpful for people. That’s why I wrote them,” he continues. ”Reorder brings the Order Disorder and Reorder cycle to completion with seven new songs about lessons learned on the other side of adversity. This was the part of the story I’ve always been most excited about.”

The cascading release schedule of Order Disorder Reorder has been divided into three parts “to give time and space to reflect on one part of the journey before digging into the next,” Gray says.

The full Order Disorder Reorder track listing follows:

01 Becoming

02 Maker of Mornings (I Am Loved)

03 Wonder

04 I’m Gonna Let It Go

05 Order Disorder Reorder

06 Through

07 Remind Me You’re Here

08 Honesty

09 Fight For You

10 New Song

11 Hard Times Prelude

12 What the Hard Times Taught Me

13 Glory Days

14 Bring It All

15 Tethered

16 Again And Again

17 Right On Time

18 Every Moment Belongs

* Order (tracks 1-5), Disorder (tracks 6-11) and Reorder (tracks 12-18)

Playing the new music and fan favorites outdoors in non-traditional, socially-distanced atmospheres or indoors for churches with less than a couple hundred in attendance, Gray has become one of Centricity Music’s most active touring artists. Following the cancellation of his full-production tour with another band due to COVID-19, Gray is able to effectively lead events with just a guitar, pedalboard and a bevy of hit songs.

“While touring schedules have come to almost a complete halt, Christian artist Jason Gray found a way to deliver intimate, small, live performances that he said met a need for community and connection,” shares American Songwriter in a story on Gray’s touring that ran today.

“I wanted to build handrails for people in the storms of life,” Gray shares in the article. “Handrails to give them a sense of being secure and anchored, something to hold onto that hopefully might reduce their anxiety and sense of confusion.”

Following all local pandemic guidelines, and with upcoming events in nine states and more concerts being added regularly, Gray’s current itinerary is listed below:

Those movies were an overnight success and went on to sell more than ten million copies on VHS and DVD.  In today’s climate of uncertainty, these stories are more timely than ever, with the ‘plotlines’ mirroring our news headlines.   The fear and uncertainty of the Book of Revelation comes to life in the LEFT BEHIND TRILOGY.

It’s really happening, exactly as the Bible predicted thousands of years ago.”   The LEFT BEHIND TRILOGY was directed by trio of excellent directors Vic Sarin, Bill Corcoran and Craig R. Baxley.

GRAMMY® Award-nominated rock band NEEDTOBREATHE has returned with an official music video for “Who Am I”. The video, which premiered earlier today on Parade.com , follows “Hang On” as the second Jared Hogan-directed clip in a five-part series of visuals for the band’s forthcoming album Out of Body . Watch it now HERE .

“It’s been amazing to see the fan reaction to ‘Who Am I’ so far. We wanted to keep this video simple and let the performance speak for itself,” the band shared. “We are working on some new ideas specifically with this track, so we hope fans and everybody keep an eye out for that.”

Out of Body is due for release on August 28, 2020 via Elektra Records/Centricity Music, and is available for pre-order and pre-save now HERE . Limited edition merch bundles and experiences are available exclusively through NEEDTOBREATHE’s online store HERE .

NEEDTOBREATHE will welcome the album with Celebrating Out of Body , a fully immersive concert experience directed by acclaimed filmmaker Elizabeth Olmstead (Brandi Carlile, The Highwomen) that will see the band perform their new songs live for the very first time. Streamed from the studio in Nashville, TN, this high definition audio and video experience will put fans right in the middle of a live performance to celebrate the album’s release. Celebrating Out of Body will take place on Friday, August 28th at 9:00pm ET. Tickets are available now HERE .

NEEDTOBREATHE introduced Out of Body in April with the release of anthemic lead single “Hang On” and ballad “Seasons” . American Songwriter claimed, “‘Hang On’ could easily be the next summertime sing-along , ” and E! News praised the track as “The sort of anthem we all need right about now . ” “Hang On” has already soundtracked a national campaign for the PGA Tour’s Impact Initiative and been featured in the season finale of American Idol .

In June, NEEDTOBREATHE launched the album’s pre-order alongside its third song “Survival” (feat. Drew & Ellie Holcomb)” , and shared the emotionally charged track “Who Am I” . Earlier this month, the band released the album’s fifth and final instant-grat track “Banks” .

On Out of Body , the platinum-certified trio—Bear Rinehart [vocals, guitar], Seth Bolt [bass, vocals], and Josh Lovelace [keys, vocals]—examine life, family, and friends through a youthful prism. The guys take stock of not only two decades as a band, but also first-time fatherhood and the future over a rich soundtrack of soulful rock with stadium-size scope and poetic intimacy. After spending a week at a beach house in Charleston to gather thoughts and ideas, the trio headed to Nashville, to record alongside producers Cason Cooley and Jeremy Lutito. As they cultivated a team atmosphere, the songs organically came to life.

Out of Body follows 2016’s H A R D L O V E , which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Current Album Sales Chart, and featured the gold-certified title track “Hard Love”.

Apollo LTD Reveals Unifying, Uplifting Video “You” As Single Becomes Top 25 Billboard Hit; American S ongwriter Premieres Video

APOLLO LTD REVEALS UNIFYING, UPLIFTING VIDEO “YOU”

AS SINGLE BECOMES TOP 25 /BILLBOARD/ HIT

*American Songwriter/Premieres Video/*

“You” Marks First Single From Full-Length Debut Album

Set To Release This Fall

*Residence/Centricity Music’s* cinematic, alt-pop duo *Apollo LTD* releases today (July 10) an inspiring and unifying new video for its Top 25 and climbing Hot AC / CHR /Billboard/ hit “You .” The song is the first single from the duo’s upcoming, full-length debut album slated to release this fall.

*Jordan Phillips* and *Adam Stark*, two longtime friends who make up Apollo LTD, share the common goal to write honest songs that unite, turning the challenges that all humans face into reasons to band together. That goal is especially embodied in the song “You.” Released in this season of race relations protests and quarantine, when togetherness is difficult, the song is about reaffirming that humans have inherent value regardless of circumstances.

“We all share the same needs and desires,” perceives Phillips. “It doesn’t matter where we were born nor the color of our skin, our lives have meaning and value. And as we experience this second wave of COVID-19, people are worried about getting sick and dying. A lot of us were struggling before all this, and 2020 hasn’t helped our situations.”

“AA 12 Step and similar programs show how other peoples’ stories help you with your own stories,” adds Stark. “While in community, you are not alone in your struggles. There is hope in shared experiences.”

With this in mind, the duo’s “You” video, premiered this week by /American Songwriter/ , intersperses the stories of four, racially diverse individuals sharing their honest struggles and hopes, lending weight to the uplifting message of the song delivered by Apollo LTD amidst a backdrop of piano, ethereal strings and a stomping drumbeat.

Whether dealing with thoughts of suicide, depression, insecurity, addiction, mental health, etc., “You” encourages listeners to not give up. “With ‘You,’ we’re saying, ‘You have value,” says Stark. “The world needs the best version of you. It doesn’t need you to be a version of somebody else.”

/Every story, every scar/

/You are loved the way you are/

/There’s nothing you need to prove/

/Cause heaven knows your name/

/There’s a reason you were made/

/Fearfully and wonderfully you/

(“You” Chorus)

Available now at digital retailers and streaming outlets globally from the link https://apolloltd.lnk.to/you , “You” follows the duo’s widely acclaimed */Out of Body/* EP that sparked hits like “Gold ,” “On The Way Up ,” “Heaven ,” “Tired of LA ” and “One In A Million .” These songs have been heard on outlets like /Grey’s Anatomy/, /Station 19/ and shows featured on ESPN, FOX Sports, Comedy Central, NBC and ABC while gathering over 10 million streams and sparking three top 25 Christian radio singles.

When not in quarantine, Apollo LTD shares an explosive energy live on stage featuring Phillips’ elastic vocal instrument equipped with a strong falsetto and Stark’s playing that has been honed as a session instrumentalist and years of touring as a lead guitarist. Along with their own headline events, the duo has shared stages with Panic at the Disco, DNCE, All-American Rejects, Kesha, Amanda Lindsay Cook and more.

For all the latest Apollo LTD tour, music, news and more information, go to https://weareapolloltd.com/ , Facebook , Instagram , Twitter , YouTube , Spotify , Apple Music , Amazon Music and Pandora .

*About Apollo LTD:*

Named after the NASA program that sent the first human beings to the Moon, Apollo LTD has become an escalating highlight reel since their formation in 2015, with its songs reaching tens-of-millions on television, radio and streaming outlets nationally and internationally. Making cinematic, alt-pop music with a message that reaches skyward and rooted in a mix of organic instruments, electronic soundscapes, anthemic hooks and shimmering production, Apollo LTD have an /“/expert grasp of the pop genre,” says /The Atlantic Magazine/ as /Artist Direct/ agrees they are “a band that builds melodic hooks, powerful pop tunes and lyrics that play with expectation.” /Consequence of Sound/ says, “Each melody could be a hook in its own right…radio friendly single with bite.” Making waves with its /Out of Body/ EP (2018) and cracking the Top 40 with radio singles like “Gold ” and “On The Way Up ,” Apollo LTD is poised for success with new music in 2020.

HILLSONG YOUNG & FREE RELEASES TWO NEW SINGLES – AVAILABLE TODAY!

HILLSONG YOUNG & FREE RELEASES TWO NEW SINGLES

“WORLD OUTSIDE YOUR WINDOW” & “AS I AM”

*AUDIO* *TRACKS WITH LIVE **VIDEOS* *AVAILABLE TODAY*

**

*LOS ANGELES*(July 10, 2020) — *GRAMMY*® nominated*Hillsong Young & Free, *the youth movement born out of Hillsong Church in Sydney, Australia,announces the release of two brand new singles, *“World Outside Your Window” *and*“As I Am*.” Out today with accompanying live videos, the new music is a combination of studio and live recordings featuring lead vocals from Young & Free’s Josh Grimmett and Melodie Wagner. Listen to the new tracks here and watch the live videos here .

“Verna Myers says “Diversity is being invited to the party, inclusion is being asked to dance”.” We’ve been waiting a couple years for the right time to release ‘As I Am’ and we believe this is a timely song for the beautiful reality of Gods inclusive nature and diverse creation,” said Laura Toggs about “As I Am.” “We’re ALL welcome to sit at the table of the Lord… and as the ‘Young & Free’ team, we choose to stand in solidarity and say that ‘Black Lives Matter.’ May this song minister to those who are in pain right now and exhort us all to fight for equality, just as Jesus has made a way for every single one of us.”

About “World Outside Your Window,” Toggs continues, “Is it possible that there’s a world outside our windows that we could easily allow to pass us by? We have the best news in the world… so let’s not be silent, let’s lift our voice and make it loud… Jesus is the answer. ‘World Outside Your Window’ is a call to salvation that inspires an anthem for all creation. It’s full of faith and celebration that we believe is necessary as the world seeks answers in such tumultuous times.”

“World Outside Your Window” and “As I Am” are Young & Free’s fourth and fifth singles to drop in 2020 and release on the heels of the group’s current radio single “Never Have I Ever” that received eight adds out of the box, and is already appearing as “new & active” on the Christian Airplay and Hot AC charts. They also follow the group’s earlier breakout songs “Lord Send Revival” and “Best Friends,” which remains the highest audio debut of any Hillsong track to date, having already accumulated 6.3M+ global streams, peaking at #1 on the Hot AC chart.

Young & Free continues to play an integral role in reaching this generation for Christ with their revamped contemporary approach. Since forming in 2013, Hillsong Young & Free has released three highly successful albums and more than 20 singles, acquiring over *459 million* YouTube channel views and *1.2 BILLION* global career streams (with a 700,000 plus global unit career consumption). With a combined social following of *3 million* plus fans, Young & Free has seen *seven No. 1 career singles* and *10 Top 5 singles* at Hot AC radio. Their debut album “We Are Young & Free” landed in the *Top 25 on Billboard 200* while “Youth Revival” garnered the group its first-ever GRAMMY® nomination for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album (2017). Their recent single “Every Little Thing” hit #1 at Hot AC radio for eight weeks, making it the longest running #1 for the band.

HILLSONG WORSHIP AND TASHA COBBS LEONARD RELEASE COLLABORATIVE SINGLE – “AWAKE MY SOUL” AVAILABLE TODAY

*_HILLSONG WORSHIP AND TASHA COBBS LEONARD ANNOUNCE COLLABORATIVE RELEASE FOR “AWAKE MY SOUL” _*

*NEW SINGLE AVAILABLE **TODAY* *ON ALL STREAMING PLATFORMS*

**

_Hi-Res Single Art_: HERE | _Courtesy Credit to_: Hillsong Worship and Tasha Cobbs Leonard

**

*LOS ANGELES*(June 19, 2020) —***GRAMMY**®**Award-winning Hillsong Worship*, *along with* *GRAMMY**®**Award-winning singer/songwriter Tasha Cobbs Leonard*, announce the release of a special collaborative edition of *“Awake My Soul*.” Featuring lead vocals from Hillsong worship leader/songwriter *Brooke Ligertwood* and Cobbs Leonard, the single is available now on all streaming platforms.

When Hillsong Worship was first searching for words and melodies to articulate what would become their “AWAKE” album, they felt a clear directive toward a sound that would accompany an awakening of God’s people. “Awake My Soul” became a song-cry of intercessional praise and an invitation to consider the spiritual ‘sound’ of the Saviour’s response. From the outset, the song was a powerful expression of spiritual warfare.

“Last year our church, Hillsong, announced that Tasha Cobbs Leonard was going to be one of our guests at Hillsong Conference 2020 in July in Sydney, Australia (news which was met with much jubilation!),” said Ligertwood. “At the beginning of this year, Tasha and I then began talking about what it would be like for us to record a song together live at Hillsong Conference.

We witnessed the COVID-19 pandemic evolve, as it reached a point that necessitated postponement of live events and conferences the world over. It became clear we weren’t going to be able to execute what we’d originally planned. However, the collaboration felt important, so perhaps there was something else we could do…And so, ‘Awake My Soul with Tasha Cobbs Leonard’ was birthed.

Though we could not have foreseen the potent timing of this collaboration, it was well within the Lord’s realm of knowledge and so we are grateful, yet not surprised!”

“What God was birthing in us was on purpose, and it was for this time,” adds Tasha Cobbs Leonard.” ‘“Awake My Soul’ calls for the Church to arise and take authority. It reminds us of an eternal weight and an eternal calling. Together, this anthem is the Church’s declaration that there is an awakening taking place in the earth. The Kingdom of God is alive!’

“Awake My Soul” is Hillsong Worship’s first collaboration since partnering with Delirious back in 2004. The duo (Ligertwood and Cobbs Leonard) have been friends for years and share the same passion for worship and the same desire to connect people to God. Together, they pray that this rendition will be a reflection of God’s heart for His Church: unity, diversity, peace and power.

//

“Our hope is that this version of ‘Awake My Soul’ unequivocally exhorts every believer who hears it to PRAY with faith and authority for our world and Christ’s Church at this time in history,” says Ligertwood and Cobbs Leonard.

“May His Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven, and may our worship and intercession pull that reality into this one:

/“And when He moves and when we pray/

/Where stood a wall now stands a way/

/Where every promise is Amen”/

ZACHARY RAY RELEASES NEW SINGLE

‘Eyes on You’ Goes for Adds Today to Christian AC Radio

May 27, 2020 (Nashville, Tennessee) – “Eyes on You,” a new single from Zachary Ray is releasing to Christian AC-formatted radio outlets today. The single also is available at all digital retailers, including iTunes and Spotify.

“Eyes on You,” co-written by Ray and Katelyn Clampett, was produced by Brandon Bee.

“I see music as a tool that can be used to bring transformation and healing for people around the world,” Ray says.

.Ray developed a passion for music as a young boy, first singing in his dad’s church. He then pursued the passion at Berklee College of Music, where he studied vocal performance and music business.

Ray has been using the gift of music to teach and train aspiring musicians for more than 12 years. During the past decade, he has lived in India where he teaches at Calcutta School of Music. He also started a company, Chaitown Creatives, where he teaches and trains young musicians and vocalists. Ray met his wife while working in India; the couple has a two-year-old and another baby on the way.

Ray has returned to America for a season to write and record his music. Writing from a place of candor, Ray’s music is about his journey, songs about heartache, doubt, deep love and healing, but, most of all, songs about seasons of hope, comfort, peace and confidence that keeps him going.
