Three-time Juno nominees NewWorldSon rocketed to international fame after the release of their smokey funk-infused debut “Salvation Station”. Further recognition followed with the success of their first hit single “There Is A Way” – peaking at number 2 on the Billboard Music chart for Christian Songs, reaching the number 1 spot at Christian radio in Canada, the UK and Australia, and helping to garner three of 11 awards in total from the Gospel Music Association for the Niagara Falls-based group.
The band’s unforgettable live show pulls in the new lineup consisting of veteran Canadian bassist John Irvine, and Motown alumnus Leroy Emmanuel (Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson) to the party, adding even more depth and history to their signature sound: inspirational lyrics, an eclectic blend of 60s soul, funk, roots and gospel.
Every now and then a song comes along that is so intriguing, it captures the heart of everyone who hears it. “Bones,” the debut single from Ginny Blackmore, is one of those songs. It’s a heartwrenching story of unrequited love, uniquely told by Blackmore’s vulnerable yet powerful vocals. Written in a painful moment of her love life, “Bones” has drastically altered Blackmore’s life, transforming a struggling singer and songwriter from Auckland, New Zealand, into one of Epic Records’ most captivating pop newcomers. Blackmore is fast becoming one of our country’s biggest songwriting exports, whether penning songs for the likes of Christina Aguilera, Adam Lambert and Pixie Lott, or behind the microphone herself, reaching the soaring notes of her latest hit ‘Sing For Me’
