Motown Gospel/Capitol CMG emerging artist Jonathan Traylor breathes new energy into the faith-based music scene with his major label debut, The Unknown, available today. Beginning as a three-track release, The Unknown is an innovative playlist-styled album that will continuously be updated with new songs and video content over the course of the year.
Writing from a place of transparency and authenticity, Jonathan Traylor has been celebrated for music that is both compelling and relevant. Inspired by a personal season of blindfolded trust, The Unknown celebrates the constant faithfulness of God in the midst of uncertainty. Opening track “You Get the Glory” is a rousing worship song that serves as a heart cry of Traylor’s faith journey. The pop-leaning “I Trust You” reflects a commitment to not lean on our own understanding, while the rowdy “Purpose Over Pleasure (Live)” is an anthem for unashamed believers to live for God.
“I want to do something different in music that people have never seen or heard before,” shares Traylor. “I want to help raise a generation of wild worshippers that don’t hold back anything and worship with an intense passion and fire.”
The triple-threat singer/songwriter, producer/musician, and dancer rose to national prominence last year, following a string of tour dates and high-profile appearances, including the pre-show stage at Kirk Franklin’s Exodus Music & Arts Festival in Traylor’s hometown of Dallas, TX. Since then, he has quickly become known for his passionate lyrics, catchy hooks, and dynamic stage performances that infuse the culture with the message of the Gospel.
