Nashville, TN (December 30, 2015) – Dean Newkirk announces today that his debut solo project “Hope Found” has been released. The project was completely funded through friends and family who had complete confidence that Newkirk had found the right combination for this breakthrough endeavor.

Joining Newkirk at the production reins of the 12 song record were three award winning powerhouses including Kevin Ward, Michael Sykes and the late Lari Goss. Their collaborative efforts engaged various musical genres with one clear message of the Gospel that hope can be found in Christ.

Producer Kevin Ward comments: “I knew from talking to Dean that this would be a ‘dream’ project for him. The goals that he had for this project were nothing short of inspiring.”

Featured guests include the country super group Restless Heart, the sweet soprano vocals of Katy Peach and the stellar accapella ensemble Voices of Lee. “It was an honor for me to work with the entire team involved. It’s my prayer that the songs and message would be a source of encouragement and hope as we follow Christ,” Newkirk explained.
“Hope Found” features a perfect blend of Southern Gospel, inspirational, country and more. With soaring melodies and powerful lyrics this authentic work includes songs penned by Newkirk as well as songs from the finest and most respected writers in the industry. Writers Marty Funderburk, Joel Lindsey, Sue C. Smith, Rebecca J. Peck, Lanny Wolfe, Melodie Tunney, Wayne Haun, Dwight Liles and Bill & Gloria Gaither are among those contributing to the project.

From the Gaither favorite, “Plenty Of Room In The Family”, to the stirringly orchestrated Christian power ballad, “Undivided”, to the soulful gospel original “Draw Me Nearer”, “Hope Found” features newly arranged classics and brand new tunes alike.

Dean Newkirk is a gifted musician and communicator who uses his warm tenor vocals and piano talents to share the Gospel as a worship leader and songwriter.
