Artist Review: Bami – “Stream Of His Grace” EP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Captivatingly talented with her voice and spiritually authentic in her message, rising Gospel artist Bami brings us on a modernized journey into the realms of uplifting our Faith in God with her much awaited versatile new EP Streaming Of His Grace.

Bami‘s sound is explosive, multifaceted and graciously fun with a ton of multi-genre additives and flavorful beats on this 4-track record. Her electronically-infused sound combines an array of funky riffs, hypnotic jazzy tempos and a salsa/tropical and Latin edge that brings out her voice very effectively and tastefully. Her mid-ranged voice tackles very spiritual content about her Faith in the Lord and really brings a new and fresh approach to the legacy of Gospel music with her compellingly dynamic production and highly intricate song structures.

Delving into the songs themselves, the musicianship factors are unwavering. The rhythmic tempos are extremely neat and tidy and grasp onto composition techniques reminiscent of many jazz and fusion eras, but that’s just one of many components. Her Pop elements also add to the intuitive song structures and really helps carry Bami‘s voice in a way that is front and center, with very tasteful melodies in her vocal approach that resonate perfectly with the bluesy rhythms and chord progressions. This is a modern day triumph of Gospel music that could easily take on a life of its own, and really showcases an amazing range of production techniques and songwriting structures that are rare in Gospel music, if not new altogether.

The most striking part of Streaming Of His Grace is the originality. The record does not emulate any other artist and Bami really delves into a signature sound that is in her own right. You can draw comparisons to her if you think hard enough, but there’s no question that her approach in Gospel is anything but ordinary. If you’re looking for a spiritual record that is also musically fascinating and compelling, then Streaming Of His Grace will absolutely blow your mind.

Artist Review: TBJ & Holy Nation – “My Audience Is The Lord” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With voices of spirit, energy of life, and true passion for the Lord, Gospel powerhouse TBJ & Holy Nation lift our spirits and faith in great proportions with their newest single “My Audience Is My Lord”.

Performing with outstanding charisma and a choir of God-gifted vocal ranges that are vibrant and powerful, we get an astonishing and captivating song that is both spiritually motivated and musically multifaceted. The song, released in June 2018, is based off a very compelling and inspirational story of a woman that had intentions of taking her own life, and by the power of realization that God has always been there for her, had therefore changed the trajectory of her life and ultimately saving it through his power, as well as the help of another person who reminded her that her faith is strong – and that you can get through anything. And that’s what “My Audience Is The Lord” is about – overcoming the darkness and guiding yourself to light through the power of the Lord, and to always believe.

The musicianship is amazing from beginning to end. It starts off strong and is unwavering to the very last measure. Their signature sound is Broadway worthy and is not in the realm of your typical church choir. This group is incredibly melodic, precise, inspirational and a constant reminder that your faith is always strong. It’s a song that can lift you up even at your rock bottom. A song that has glistening voices and a high spirited nature that has positivity that can spread anywhere and everywhere to all those who have the Lord in their heart, or are still searching for stable ground to walk on.

TBJ & Holy Nation really hit it out of the park with this song, and the message is just as powerful as the music. They’re a group that will inspire you, as well as bring you to new heights in your faith in the Lord as well as your love for Gospel. This song truly sings to your soul.

“My Audience Is The Lord” is currently available on all digital music retailers and streaming outlets.
