New Music: S.O. "Where Would I Be?" ft. Dru Bex

By Lamp Mode

New Music: S.O.

  

Continuing his run of consistent releases in 2017, S.O. is back with his latest song “Where Would I Be?” featuring Dru Bex and produced by OnBeatMusic.

Where Would I Be? is a testimonial and a call to celebration to his listeners. As Christians, it is very easy to forget how far we’ve come because of how focused we are today. When asked about the inspiration for the track, S.O. was very candid.

Where Would I Be? is a celebratory reminder to reflect and remember how far you’ve come. If God didn’t save us from darkness into His light, where would we be? Every Christian has that testimony -- never forget,” exhorted S.O.

Grits & the Grimels Contest & News

Lamp Mode Rec. is excited to partner with author Chris Lassiter to promote his new book Grits and The Grimels.

Grits and the Grimels is the tale of how one family (the Grimels) moved into a neighborhood to help start a new church. The family falls in love with the funniest and most mischievous kid in the neighborhood (Grits).

“I wanted to instill theological truths in a way that was culturally relevant and not boring,” said Lassiter, who hopes success with the first book will mean publishing the whole Grits and the Grimels series.

To promote the book, Lassiter will be running a contest giving away a set of Beats by Dre Earbuds, a multiple CD/T-shirt package from Lamp Mode Recordings, an Andrew Russell EP, and a signed copy of the children’s book.

To enter the contest, you can start by filling out the form below.

Grits and The Grimels will be available on Amazon.com on June 28th.

NEW MUSIC: "Priest-Judge" by Timothy Brindle

By Lamp Mode

NEW MUSIC:

The Garden in Eden was a Temple, since God dwelt with His people. Therefore, God made Adam to be a priest "to guard" God's holy presence from evil (Gen. 2:15; Numbers 3:5-10) and execute judgment on anything unclean that would defile His holy sanctuary (i.e., the serpent!).

This sets the pattern for the Levites killing 3,000 idolaters on their day of ordination, Joshua leading a kingdom of priests into the Promised Land to slaughter the Canaanites, and ultimately Jesus Christ's cleansing of the Temple and his casting out of Satan by his death and Resurrection as we await for him to cleanse the earth of all the wicked in His second coming!

In his second single from "The Unfolding" album over a rugged track produced by Braille of Beautiful Eulogy, Timothy Brindle unpacks how this theme of Priest-Judge unfolds from Genesis to Revelation.

"The Shift to Streaming"

In 2017, it's very obvious that streaming has fundamentally shifted how music is consumed. One major aspect of the shift is best captured in the embracing of the playlist. For the average music listener, playlists are at the forefront of how they consume music. While people have shifted away from listening to albums and singles, the average person now listens to music on playlists that represent the different seasons and moods in life.

S.O. on Spotify

For Lamp Mode artist S.O., Spotify and Apple Music playlists have given new life to his music previously released, as well as creating avenues for new music. Over the last several months, S.O. has released a slew of projects including "These Things Take Time," and "The B-Sides," as well as a number of singles including "Riding Through Nacogdoches," "What Now," and "New Wave Remix."  These singles and projects have given S.O. added visibility on Spotify and Apple Music.

"London Dreams" placed on "Beast Mode" Playlist

This week, S.O.'s song "London Dreams" from his 2015 project "So it Ends" was added to the official Spotify "Beast Mode"  workout playlist. With over 2,100,000 followers, "London Dreams" has the potential to reach many who've never heard his music, or more importantly, the message behind his music. London Dreams was also added to the popular CHH playlist "The Blaze."

Continue to follow along with S.O.'s music. Follow him Spotify and keep in touch with him on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
