“Sweet, Sweet, Sound,” Currently Available At All Digital Music Outlets
(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) Jan. 29, 2009—Sparrow Records’ newest signing, worship artist Sarah Reeves, wraps a 27-city promotional tour in support of her debut radio single, “Sweet, Sweet Sound.” The song, which released to Christian AC, CHR, and INSPO radio on Dec. 26, 2008, is currently available at all digital music outlets.
Reeves began her tour last month in Florida, making her way up to the Carolinas and on to Michigan and Indiana. She also visited stations in Illinois, Missouri, Texas, Oklahoma and California before the holidays. Among those stations was WBGL-FM in Champaign, Ill. Jeff Scott, general manager at WBGL, commented on Reeves’ visit: “Sarah is very pleasant and easy to spend time with…I pray all of us as an industry protect her. Her first single is very strong with a memorable hook and a message beyond her years.”
Similarly, Gary Thompson, program director at WJQK-FM in Grand Rapids, Mich., remarked, “I think Sarah is a winner. She’s got great potential and a great future as an artist. I like the song. We’ll keep it on the radar.”
In early January, Reeves joined fellow Sparrow Records artists Britt Nicole, Above the Golden State, and Danyew for the “New Faces Tour,” a week-long venture to radio stations in the southeast. The tour, which showcased music from the label’s newest signings, wrapped last week.
“We are extremely proud of our new artist line-up for 2009,” says Grant Hubbard, vice president, EMI CMG national promotions. “They were a big hit on the road this month, and we’ve already received great feedback from radio stations who are eager to play music. Sarah, particularly, won fans at radio who are rooting for her strong debut.”
Reeves’ debut single and the title track from her forthcoming April 21, 2009 release, Sweet, Sweet Sound, was serviced to radio stations nationwide last month and is now available via digital music outlets.
With zealous faith and a love of music early on, Reeves first exercised her songwriting/vocal abilities as a participant in her church’s fine arts program. Consistently placing first at local as well as regional competitions, Reeves was moved by the receptiveness of young people to her message—one of power and freedom in the Holy Spirit. She has since made it her goal to serve God by leading young people into a lifestyle of worship and adoration to Him. Reeves is represented by Patton House Entertainment and Jeff Robert & Associates.
