NEEDTOBREATHE returns with their eighth studio album, ‘Into The Mystery’, following up on 2020’s ‘Out of Body.’ Covid restrictions have put their tour on hold over the past year, so the band took refuge at an old historic house near Columbia, Tennessee. In the autumn of 2020, they lived, ate, joked, and recorded together for three weeks. The outcome is an electrifying album that captures the band’s South Carolina heritage.
Maryland faith-based artist Kevin Phillips knows who to thank for every blessing in his life, and every day, when he loses sight of the better things in life, he turns to God for help and inspiration. Kevin started his music career back in his teens, with ‘Trilogy’, formed with two friends. The trio was signed to record deals in New York City. Now a solo artist, Kevin’s infectious energy and faith in God has provided him with plenty of lyric matter, and his record label – Phillips Music Group also pays homage to his Lord, with its acronym also standing for “Praise Mighty God”.
Christina Morgan-Diaz has dedicated her life to Christ, and rather than fall into hopelessness when facing times of trouble – such as the current global situation, she has always found solace in the adage, “with that strength, remember that there is always hope”. She has been given many opportunities through her life to share her musical talent, and her new single, ‘I Need More’, written by Pastor Thomas Johnson, is not just a showcase of her voice, but also her love for God.
