GOSPEL MUSIC’S FLOWER CHILD

CASEY J

IS BLOSSOMING INTO A FULL-FLEDGED STAR

AS SHE HITS THE ROAD FOR 50-CITY “FESTIVAL OF PRAISE TOUR”

 

Atlanta, GA - Within the last two years, Casey J – a former Atlanta elementary school teacher – has racked up two massive Billboard Magazine No. 1 radio singles, a No. 1 debut album that’s spent an entire year on the national sales charts and she’s also won the 2016 Stellar Gospel Music Award as New Artist of the Year. Now, the smooth-voiced chirper is hitting the road as part of the 50-city “Festival of Praise” tour that is headlined by established gospel artists such as Fred Hammond, Israel Houghton, Karen Clark Sheard, Regina Belle and Hezekiah Walker.

 

The tour kicks off October 1st at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, WA as Casey J’s third radio single “Let It Be Known,” a festive track with urban colors, begins to race its way up the charts. It should be a crowd-pleaser on the tour. “It’s truly a dream come true to be able to sing on the same stage as people I grew up listening to such as Fred Hammond and Israel Houghton,” she says. “The tour is going to be fun.”

Casey J’s first radio single “Fill Me Up” spent 14 weeks atop Billboard Magazine’s Gospel Airplay chart in 2015 and her next offering “I’m Yours” spent five weeks at No. 1 on the same chart in 2016. Her album “The Truth” (Marquis Boone/Tyscot Records) debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Gospel Albums sales chart and continues to sell briskly. Casey J has received media coverage in The New York Times, The Atlanta Journal & Constitution and she also had a coveted performance spot on the 2016 Essence Festival. The self-proclaimed Flower Child (because she loves artsy, esoteric things) is quickly blossoming into gospel music’s next big superstar.

GRAMMY® AWARD NOMINATED TRIO

THE RANCE ALLEN GROUP

TO RELASE ITS 25TH ALBUM

“LIVE FROM SAN FRANCISCO BAY” ON OCTOBER 28TH

 

Indianapolis, IN: The legendary trio, The Rance Allen Group, three blood brothers, will release its 25th original album and third live project - “Live From San Francisco Bay” (Tyscot Records) – on October 28th. The group pioneered the fusion of R&B-styled rhythms with spiritual and message music themes in the 1970s. It’s a winning style that has won them fans as varied as American Idol’s Randy Jackson and `80s rockers Huey Lewis & The News. They continue to labor in this unique musical vineyard on the new eleven-song set that was recorded live at the Bay area’s Richmond Memorial Auditorium.

 

“The theme really is to be encouraged in a very kind of depressed time,” says Rance Allen who sees parallels between today’s social climate and that of when his group was formed during the Civil Rights and Vietnam eras. “It’s a time of unusual stress with all of the killings going on, the political mess that’s going on and there’s just so many people who have just moved away from trusting God and believing in Jesus Christ. Our job of encouraging and uplifting will never be done. We’ll have to keep working on this until the Lord comes to take us home.”

 

The album’s first radio single “All Day Long” is a warm, uplifting song of praise set to a smooth and mellow R&B flavored groove with a Jazzy horn arrangement. It climaxes in a crescendo of cymbals, drums, thick harmonies and Rance Allen’s lion-like roar of a wail. The project features new songs such as the ballad “My Delight” (led by Steve Allen), the quartet-styled stomper ‘Hold On” and the soulful tune “Vessel” that is guaranteed to raise the heaviest of roofs.

 

The groups also dusts off some stellar B-sides from past albums and gives them new arrangements such as the old school soul of “Like A Good Neighbor” and the funk of “I’m Not Givin’ Up Givin’ Out Givin’ Givin’ In” that is lead by Tom Allen. The group provides some dance-floor rhythms with songs such as “Got Me Dancin’,” “Can’t Give Up (The Groove)” and “Victory Dance.” The collection is rounded out with fan favorites such as the group’s signature songs “Miracle Worker” and “Something About The Name of Jesus.”

 

The Rance Allen Group was formed in 1965 in Monroe, MI as a self-contained band. In 1972, they signed to Stax Records’ Gospel Truth subsidiary where they recorded a series of gritty gospel songs that won them main-stage tours with R&B headliners such as Isaac Hayes and Barry White. The group has been recording ever since and was honored with the BMI Trailblazer Award in 2008.
