Emotional Release Marks Randleâ€™s Debut Recording with
Co-Producer Ben IsaacsÂ
NASHVILLE, Tenn.â€”June 19, 2012–Gospel recording artist Lynda Randle has just recorded an all-new collection of songs entitled â€˜Til the Storm Passes By, scheduled to hit the streets on July 31st.Â Randle teamed up for the first time with co-producer Ben Isaacs (The Gaither Vocal Band, The Oak Ridge Boys) for the new recording, which showcases Randleâ€™s deep, transparent vocals highlighted with soulful tones.
The 12-song release marks Randleâ€™s first all-new recording in four years and includes congregational favorites â€œJust a Closer Walk with Thee,â€ â€œNothing but the Bloodâ€ and â€œI Have Decided to Follow Jesusâ€; a new version of the popular ballad â€œPeople Need the Lordâ€; a re-make of the unforgettable pop hit â€œWhat a Difference Youâ€™ve Made in My Lifeâ€; a crooning performance of the classic title cut; and a bluesy rendition of â€œWayfaring Stranger.â€
With three additional songs written or co-written by Randle, the release, recorded in Nashville, finds the singer, a household favorite on the Gaither HOMECOMING touring circuit, reconfirming an assured faith with gratefulness and hope.
â€œI was facing many challenges during my time of recording,â€ describes Randle, a resident of Kansas City, â€œand I feel as if God Himself just â€˜swooped me upâ€™ at times and placed me in front of a microphone and had the whole host of heaven sing for me!Â I think Ben and I both knew that something supernatural was taking place; and for me, this release is a dream come true.â€
In some ways, â€˜Til the Storm Passes By feels more like a â€œreality come trueâ€ for Lynda, whose rich vocals resonate with the stirring emotion of a singer who has experienced firsthand the messages of her songs.
â€œMy family and I have experienced so many spiritual and personal storms over the past two-and-a-half years,â€ she explains, â€œand God has held us close through every single one and brought us safely to the other side.Â â€˜Til the Storm Passes Byâ€™ is not just a line of an old song to me.Â Itâ€™s a testament of Godâ€™s faithfulness in my life. He always keeps His promises.Â Knowing the limitations of my own strength, all I can say is, â€˜But God….â€™â€
â€œWhen the label and Lynda approached me about producing this release, I immediately had a vision of where I wanted Lynda to go musically, and it was really fun to watch that play out in the studio,â€ recalls Isaacs.Â â€œLyndaâ€™s voice is multi-faceted.Â This release captures the depth of her vocals, and there is a spaciousness about it that accentuates those vocals beautifully.â€
â€˜Til the Storm Passes By, the newest release in the Gaither Gospel Series, will be distributed through EMI CMG Distribution and will be available through digital stores and at retail stores everywhere.Â The release will be positioned heavily at retail, through catalog placement and through a direct tv campaign on networks including GAC, RFD, TBN, FamilyNet, CTS, CTN, TCT, TLN, FFE Airtime 1, Grace, Legacy, Miracle and Vision as well as on Gaither.com.
