Daywind recording artist, Brian Free and Assurance has been busy in the studio working on their newest release Unashamed. Produced by Ricky Free, the album builds on the huge success of the group's previous album and introduces new baritone singer, Mike Rogers, from Saundersville, GA.
Brian Free and Assurance's current recording, Nothing But Love, features two Singing News Magazine #1 songs, "I Want To Be That Man," and "Calvary's Cry" with the third single, "Nothing But Love" now playing at radio stations nationwide. The group and the recording received seven nominations overall for the NQC Music Awards, being held this week at the National Quartet Convention in Louisville, KY, and the Singing News Fan Awards, being held later this month at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, TN, including Favorite Song ("I Want To Be That Man"), Favorite Album, Tenor of the Year (Brian Free) and Favorite Traditional Quartet.
"This group never rests on its laurels, despite being recognized as one of Southern Gospel music's greatest quartets" shared Ed Leonard, president of Daywind Records, BFA's recording home for over fourteen years. "Brian, Bill, Mike, and Jeremy, along with producer Ricky Free, are always pushing the envelope sonically to bring the Gospel message to the people. Ricky has come into his own as one of the best producers and songwriters around. Unashamed will be their combined best work to date."
Brian Free added, "Unashamed is a continuation of our history of bringing the strongest, most ministering songs we can to the people. This project is full of songs that challenge and encourage and bring the message of salvation to the lost. Now more than ever before it's important to choose songs that follow scripture. We are making a statement with this project that we are Unashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ."
Commenting on fan anticipation for the album, producer Ricky Free said, "I am honored to be a part of another record and can't wait to get it into the hands of the fans that I know are already looking forward to it."
No official release date has been set for Unashamed. It will likely see an early 2014 release in Christian bookstores and on digital outlets.
