On FROM THE HEART Reedy calls on the support of bevy of producers and artists friends to make her debut a standout. Among the truly beautiful notable tracks are So In Love With You (Amazing), When I Close My Eyes featuring Doc Powell, which Reedy co-wrote and produced with renowned songwriters James Big Jim Wright and Daniel Moore. Super-producer Warryn Campbell lent his producer talents to several tracks including Still Here, Marching On and Doctor Love. Industry pals The Soul Seekers appear on the great Quartet-esque Still Here, written by Doug Williams, where Reedy matches vocals with lead singer, Teddy Campbell. Showing musical savvy and switching gears, Reedy also offers the ultra Disco-esque Doctor Love, a re-do of the 70 s dance floor classic by the same name. Outstanding songstress Faith Evans joins Reedy on the song that makes you want to put on roller skates and give Him praise.But most prominent on FROM THE HEART is Blue God, a profoundly moving song speaking to our selfishness in our relationships with God. Penned and produced by fellow rising star Mali Music, the song evokes feelings of sadness, the heaviness and sultry approach by Reedy give the song literal and figurative weight.A true testament to Reedy s faith, the release of FROM THE HEART is an indication of a blossoming long career. As a minister of music, HE showed me how necessary it is to know HIS word ... that it is the Word of God that would draw, heal, deliver, protect and save HIS people, said Reedy. He s teaching me about the importance of faith and simply believing and trusting everything HE says. Jessica Reedy is clearly an original, with a vocal style and personal charisma that is all about love, honesty, praising God and embracing her purpose. I would have to describe my music as heart songs said Reedy. It s music from my heart about the One I love the MOST. I don t really know the style or category it fits in ... it s just me.

Recorded live at the Love Fellowship Tabernacle in Bensalem, PA, Souled Out is a classic Hezekiah Walker & LFC recording full of energy and praise. Produced entirely by multiple Stellar Award winning producer Donald Lawrence, this album covers the entire spectrum of the Gospel music experience, from high energy anthems to soul-stirring ballads of praise to the Lord.

As a third of one of urban contemporary's hottest production companies, the three-man team known as PAJAM, J Moss has been the co-writer and/or producer behind some of the biggest artists in both Gospel and mainstream music for the better part of the last decade, including Karen Clark-Sheard, Hezekiah Walker, N'Sync, Vanessa Williams, Trin-i-tee 5:7, Dru Hill and Boyz II Men. But unknown to many, J Moss, the "man behind the mixing board," is an equally gifted singer and performer, who for most of his life has prayerfully and carefully sought and waited for his time to step from behind-the scenes to the forefront. With the arrival of his new self-titled CD, that moment has clearly come, and one listen makes it abundantly clear it was well worth the wait.
What was Johnny Cash's favorite of all his albums? My Mother's Hymn Book, a set of spirituals his family sang when he was a boy. These came straight from his mother's hymn book and are performed here by just Johnny and his guitar. For a limited time, this treasure is available apart from the Unearthed boxed set.
Just Love By Monica Watkins, contributing editor, GospelMusicChannel.com Once again, Music World Entertainment is flexing their Gospel music muscle with debut artist Brian Courtney Wilson's Just Love. Don't let your ears be fooled; it's not the O'Jays singing on track one, the title track of the CD. But Just Love reveals a bit of Wilson's personality, musical influences and his history, as he sings of his appreciation for his church in Houston, Texas. While the track isn't a guaranteed favorite, it does stir up curiosity regarding what else Wilson may have to sing about. A well-crafted blend of pop, jazz, and R&B, all pretty standard sounds in urban Gospel, the project weighs heavy on the ballad end of the scale, but it's probably for the best. Wilson's mature, R&B style vocals seem to slide into the soulful tunes more comfortably. Some true notables are the Tommy Sims' masterpiece, "Simply Redeemed," a powerful worship ballad "Almighty God," and the gospel friendly first single, "All I Need." It's easy to guess what music Wilson grew up on, as the influence is evident throughout the project. His throwback sound may well work for or against this artist, but only time will tell. In the meantime, Just Love is certainly a satisfying debut. In a review of JUST LOVE, Andrew Greer of Christianity Today writes, "Roll out the red carpet. It's not every day that music industry mogul and famed father Mathew Knowles (Beyonce, Trin-i-tee 5:7) hand selects a new artist for his label's tight-knit roster. But after hearing singer/songwriter Brian Courtney Wilson's smooth grooves and smokey vocal chops, Knowles signed him on the spot. Marrying slick R&B with inspirational messages and straight-up church soul sangin', the singer/songwriter makes a noticeable mark for a newcomer...With a wide appeal and high profile backing, Wilson could be gospel music's next big thing."
