GRAY COMPLETES RADIO TOUR IN SUPPORT OF SINGLE, “MORE LIKE FALLING IN LOVE,” THAT COVERED 2000 MILES AND SEVENTEEN RADIO STATIONS

Nashville, TN (January 22, 2010) —- Renowned singer/songwriter, Jason Gray, brought hope and comfort recently to some of the littlest victims of Haiti’s recent earthquake.  The Rescue Children Orphanage is run by volunteers at Lifechurch in Allentown, Pennsylvania and last Friday the church members showed the children a video that was filmed late last year at the orphanage.  The music bed for the video was Jason Gray’s song, “Fade With Our Voices,” that is on his latest CD, Everything Sad Is Coming Untrue, and was written by Gray and Jason Ingram.  The chorus begins with: Does our worship have hands? Does it have feet? Does it stand up in the face of injustice? The story is documented in an MSNBC.com story from January 15th by network reporter, Bill Dedman, entitled, “A Joyful Reunion, But Now What?” Monday afternoon the children were evacuated to a safer orphanage forty miles from Port-au Prince, Love A Child, where they remain safely settled.

At the same time, Gray was on the second leg of a successful radio tour that covered two-thousand miles, from Houston, Texas to Minneapolis Minnesota, and during the trip he visited seventeen Christian radio stations.  Gray is promoting his second single, “More Like Falling In Love,” that is from his latest CD, Everything Sad Is Coming Untrue.  Stations already playing the song include: KLTY/Dallas, Texas; KXOJ/Tulsa, Oklahoma; KCVO/Camdenton, MO and WNWC/Madison, Wisconsin.

JASON GRAY TO JOIN WAY-FM’S AND WORLD VISION’S SPEAKING LOUDER THAN BEFORE 2010 TOUR

Written by Staff on January 9, 2010 – 6:17 am -

 
Nashville, TN (January 7, 2010) —- Singer/songwriter, Jason Gray, will start the New Year by hitting the road on WAY-FM’s and World Vision’s Speaking Louder Than Before 2010 Tour.  The tour launches January 20th in Charleston, SC and will cover fourteen dates through March.  Gray joins headliner Jeremy Camp, The Afters and Chasen on the tour and for ticket information please visit www.itickets.com.
 
“I’m so honored to have been invited to share the stage with Jeremy Camp,” says Gray.  “Not only is he one of the most successful artists in Christian music, but he’s also a man with a compelling story who has known brokenness – a theme that a lot of my music speaks to.  We expect it to be a great tour and I’m so happy to be a part of it.  The only problem I can foresee is that he’s pretty buff and it’s going to make me feel like I need to start working out.  Shoot.  I’m also looking forward to hanging out with The Afters and Chasen.  What a great line-up!”

“But most of all I’m grateful to get to be the voice of World Vision on this tour and advocate for the poorest of the poor children in the world,” Gray continues.  “The recession that has touched so many of us in several ways impacts the poor the most and it’s my great privilege to bring their story to our audiences.  We anticipate that this will be a great evening – both with a solid musical line-up and with a lot of heart.  God will be worshipped and lives will be changed.”
Speaking Louder Than Before 2010 Tour begins as Gray’s second single, “More Like Falling In Love,” is going for adds at Christian radio.  Gray has been traveling the country on radio visits that started in 2009 and continues through January 2010.  The song is from Gray’s current CD, Everything Sad Is Coming Untrue, which was rated as #8 in CCM’s Top Ten best faith-based albums from last year.  Matt Conner says, Most unheralded songwriter in the entire industry shines again.  Other media outlets have heralded the release with Worship Leader Magazine saying, Gray’s songs don’t really work as background music, they demand to be listened to and considered. And PowerSource Magazine adding, Strong stuff from a strong and very creative Christian singer and songwriter – Jason Gray.
 
 Gray has become a popular performer on the tour circuit, as 2009 featured Gray on the Sanctus Real tour that launched in September.  In December, Gray joined labelmates, Downhere and Lanae’ Hale, for the annual fifteen-city Bethlehem Skyline Tour that was sponsored by Centricity Music. 
 
Gray’s debut CD on Centricity Music, All The Lovely Losers, was heralded as one of the top releases in 2007.  Media outlets embraced the project and Gray from the start with coverage in CCM Magazine, ChristianMusicToday.com, Charisma, Christian Retailing, Worship Leader Magazine, JesusFreakHideout.com, Home Life Magazine, and Focus on the Family’s national radio show, Weekend Magazine.  This project was followed with Acoustic Storytime that showcased live acoustic performances of previously released songs from concerts in Minnesota and California.  Gray is known for his quick-witted humor while delivering powerful messages about perseverance rather than perfection.
