Award-Winning Artist Blends Traditional and New Favorites
In All-New Studio CD Releasing in October
NASHVILLE, TN (October 19, 2015) On the heels of Gordon Moteâ€™s Dove Award-nominated project, All Things New, New Haven Records recently announced the upcoming release of Gordon Mote Sings Hymns and Songs of Inspiration. Produced by Mote and industry legends Phil Johnson and Wayne Haun, this all-new treasury of traditional favorites and new classics blends Inspirational, Southern, Country and Pop styles to create an album that is fresh yet timeless.
New Haven Records president Ken Harding comments, “Iâ€™m constantly amazed how Gordon can make the most familiar song seem new and the newest song feel ageless. Weâ€™re thrilled to share his new album with the world.â€
In addition to such beloved hymns as “Power in the Blood,â€ “Amazing Grace,â€ “Great Is They Faithfulness,â€ and “Just As I Am,â€ Gordon features the new contemporary worship classics, “Because He Lives (Amen)â€ and “Holy Spirit.â€ Famed gospel producer/arranger Percy Gray, Jr. adds Chicago Mass Choirâ€™s trademark gospel vocals to “Precious Lord, Take My Handâ€ and “The Voices of Leeâ€ lend their considerable choral prowess as well. Mote contributes his own inspiring composition, “Only Jesus Can Heal This Hurting Worldâ€ to this 13-song set.
Gordon reflects, “Growing up in our little town of Gadsden, AL, our whole family would listen as Harry Butler hosted â€˜Songs of Inspirationâ€™ every Sunday morning on WGAD Radio. Even though we were just kids, my brother and I couldnâ€™t wait to hear the latest songs from new and familiar groups. Over the decades, â€˜Songs of Inspirationâ€™ has blessedâ€”and still blesses–lots of folks. In some small way, Iâ€™m hoping to honor and extend that legacy with this new project.â€
Through the years, Mote has enjoyed a high profile as a featured performer on The Gaither Homecoming Concert series as well as one of Music Cityâ€™s most celebrated session playersâ€”culminating in two recent Academy of Country Music and Music Row Magazine Awards for Instrumentalist of the Year. Since stepping into the spotlight as a solo artist, Gordon has recorded an impressive body of workâ€”three instrumental and six vocal albums â€” including Donâ€™t Let Me Miss the Glory (2007), Songs I Grew Up Singing (2012) and his acclaimed Christmas collection, The Star Still Shines (2012) as well as the Dove Award-nominated CDâ€™s If You Could Hear What I See (2004) and All Things New (2012).
