Light Records in conjunction with Tehillah Music Group announce this signing of singer, songwriter Jonathan McReynolds. McReynolds, heralded as Gospel’s fresh new voice, will release his debut album, LIFE MUSIC this Fall. Check out our New Artist Spotlight featuring McReynolds here.
McReynolds, an innovative musician and remarkable talent, made a name for himself with the 2010 release of an underground, very independent EP entitled The Very Unofficial EP of Jonathan McReynolds. He describes it as “a compilation of seven of my best dorm-room productions God had given me.” From the songs born out of McReynolds‘ dorm room was the single “No Gray” which touched a chord with folks across the country. Internet and gospel radio stations got hold of the song and from there it caught on fire. McReynolds & his inescapable talent caught the attention of Bishop Paul Morton and Pastor Jerry Parries at Tehillah Music Group.
McReynolds is the perfect blend of contemporary styling with Gospel messages. His perspective is refreshingly direct and the songs are poised, smooth and honest. It is R&B and Gospel at its best — love songs to a loving God.
The amazing new single, “I Love You,” likeable, catchy and uncomplicated tune hit radio with a bang. Debuting on Billboard’s Gospel singles chart, the song shows off McReynolds‘ brilliant vocals, revealing heart, strength, and maturity to his words. This song transcends any genre classification because of its universal appeal and engaging lyrics.
Through his music, McReynolds humbly speaks for his generation “I’m doing it the way God gave it to me … you’ll find what me and my generation go through on a daily basis: insecurities, battles against the world, self-discovery and the ebbs and flows of living in Christ,” he said.
McReynolds’ full album, LIFE MUSIC will be out later this year, and the single, “I Love You” is available now on iTunes.
