Introducing Brassy Sound of The Seal Breakers

The Seal Breakers has released their first full length album entitled "None Like You: Remix" featuring Jason Henderickson, Karyn Porter and Matia Celeste Washington. Trust me when I say "None like you" will leave you marching into worship.

This energetic ensemble lead by trombonist Elder Craig Williams of the Seal Breakers is an original mix of gospel music infused with the sound of percussion. "Picture marching band meets Gospel." To quote an analogy used by gospel recording artist Jason Hendrickson. When introducing me to the brassy sounds of The Seal Breakers.

Elder Craig Williams formed the praise band in 2001, known then as the "The Eagles Praise Band". Unfortunately the use of the name "The Eagles" could be a potential copyright infringement upon a rock group with a similar name, the group suffered a slight set back. Elder Williams realized that since the eagles wouldn’t fly that their praises would still be lifted up! Dr. Jamal Bryant whom was blessed to hear the band three days prior gave Elder Craig Williams a call that would not only uplifting but defining. Dr. Jamal Bryant said, "God placed you in my spirit and I wanted to know what you are going to call your group?" Elder Craig Williams told him he had not decided, but was praying about it. Dr. Jamal Bryant replied, "God told me to tell you to call the group the "The Seal Breakers!" The name was chosen from Revelations chapter 8:6 where it reads, "So the seven angles who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.."

"None Like You" is now available for download here on PreachPastor.com, Amazon and iTunes!

Joey’s Dream New CD Entiteld "Mold Me" !

Joey’s Dream

New album Mold Me due for release on 8/23/2011 by Illect Recordings

Once a self-proclaimed Average Joe, the artist formerly known as Joey the Jerk has now captured a vision of musical experience that reaches beyond his hip hop roots and into new sonic territory. This vision, realized in the form of Joey’s Dream, is a creation of sound that refuses to be categorized into one specific genre. Call it rock, call it pop, call it hip-hop, call it what you want – this latest project from the Paramount, CA, native delivers ear-pleasing results for listeners of all kinds. With the release of Mold Me, Joey’s Dream is sure to capture your attention as well as your imagination.

Make no mistake, Mold Me is a bold endeavor from Joey and a departure from what past fans of his music have come to expect. But regardless of the change in sound and name, Joey hopes to reacquaint himself with his past listeners as well as open up the door for a whole new audience. “I would hope past fans aren’t put off by the style of Joey’s Dream but would appreciate the music for what it is. I’m always wanting to share perspective, art, and the themes of my songs with all different kinds of listeners.” Those themes found on Mold Me range anywhere from deeply personal experiences to ideas about our need for God to shape us into the people we are called to be.

While the passion and honesty that past fans of his music have come to expect from Joey can be found throughout his latest project, Joey’s Dream is a labor of love that is quite collaborative in nature. For Mold Me, Joey enlisted the help of a few friends, most notably, Matt Dally who is best known for his work as bassist in the band Superchic[k]. When they weren’t in the middle of another friendly bout of Madden, the two were pouring their creative energies into many of the songs that appear on Mold Me. It goes without saying that the presence of the two artists, both coming from different musical backgrounds, can be felt throughout the course of each song.
“With Matt, he comes from a different world than I do and wants to bringabout a different result,” says Joey. “It was about making both of our visions for each particular song
collide in a way that made both of us happy.” It’s hard not to be thrilled with the results, as tracks like “Poetry in Motion” and “Wake Me Up” clearly combine the sound and personality of each artist in a way that instantly creates something new and unique.

Mold Me is an album about hope, faith, and joy. Hope that Christians can truly grasp the love
that Christ has placed in our hearts and live out our faith in boldness; faith
that regardless of life’s struggles, God is molding us and shaping us into the
people that He longs for us to be; and joy found in the little things of life,
whether it be family, friends, or even just a “Piece of Sunshine”. With diversity found not only in its subject matter, but also in its sound and presentation, Joey’s Dream is a project has
proved to be an extremely worthwhile outlet. “As an artist, I felt like I had music in me that was worthwhile, but wasn’t exactly rap music,” says Joey. “I wanted this project to sound different, look different, and be looked at in a different light.” Mission accomplished. And the resulting product is must-hear, no matter what light you’re viewing it in.
