Biography

The talented Prophetic Psalmist has just released his exciting debut album and it has been said that the world is not ready for the power and spiritually anointed messages contained in these musical compositions.

Harvey Pinkney has released his debut album earlier this month, marking a huge stride in the career of the multi-talented bass-baritone-singer-songwriter. Harvey, who lives Alsip, Illinois, has just put the final touches to the album, and is now in process of the release. This will certainly build upon his fan base and get his music, and more importantly the message from the Lord contained therein, to be heard by more people than ever.

The album, 'Finally with The Lord', consists of fourteen original songs written by Harvey Pinkney, each providing a combination of his high-energy musical composing skills, melodious and resonantly powerful vocals and heartfelt lyrics that are undoubtedly taken straight from the scriptures. The rhythmic undercurrent bears testament to the liberty in Christ exhibited by an Old Testament prophet emerging from the wilderness with a message to deliver from Almighty God. The music is punctuated throughout with elements of pop, hard driving contemporary Christian rock and R&B. The prolific use of God's Word coupled with a bass voice lead singer within the powerful compositions makes for a sound that has never been heard before.

The album was recorded at The Music Group Studios in Edmond, OK, and its creation was supported by musicians who have been associated with some of the greatest names in contemporary Christian music. It was produced by L. G. Hamilton of The Music Group Studios.

The theme of the album underlies the immense burden of the Lord that Harvey has endured over many years, the essence of which is the call to repentance and holiness to a nation that is depraved and sin sick. The harshness of the message has caused Harvey to find liberty and freedom in Christ. This freedom ultimately caused him to thrive and to explore fresh sounds and develop his one-of-a-kind musical style.

'Finally with the Lord' reveals the stunning array of poignant, serious and urgent prophetic messages, that have found their way into Harvey’s music.

Harvey was raised as a Christian and recognized at a very early age that the behavior of individuals calling themselves Christians sometimes differed markedly from the commandments of the Lord in His Word. This bothered him as a young child and to deal with and express his feelings he composed his first song at age 5 and was singing even earlier than that.

It was as a young man however, that the urges within the songs written began to parallel messages from the Lord. Harvey describes the inspirations as "fresh, pure, totally and completely unique and spiritually powerful!"

Harvey does not shy away from including political and socially controversial references in his music, reflecting one of his most consuming burdens. To remain free from the fear of man, in order to please God. The label, Harvey’s own creation, says it all. “Prophecy Set To Music.” The labels’ slogan marks its sole purpose: “Consumed by the power of God’s Word… musically...to lift & enlighten your soul.” This is why listeners are changed when they hear “Finally with the Lord.”

Lyrics

Jesus Please (Shine Your Light on Me)

Written By: Harvey Pinkney

JESUS Please

JESUS Please shine your light me.
Abba FATHER, I need strength from thee.
For I'm dead when from you I'm apart
Let the DAYSTAR rise up in my heart.

Let living water wash me from within.
Baptize me with fire that purifies from sin.
Your WORD within my heart satisfies my soul.
Getting to know you better is my only goal.

For I hunger for you.
Yes LORD, I'm thirsty too.
You said those that hunger for your will shall be filled.

JESUS please shine your light on me.
Yes LORD make my blind eyes see.
LORD I open my heart to you.
Help me LORD I'm thirsty too.

JESUS please shine your light on me.
JESUS please shine your light on me.
Help me see LORD, help me see.
JESUS please, shine your light on me.

For I hunger for you.
Yes LORD, I'm thirsty too.
You said those that hunger for your will shall be filled.

JESUS please, shine your light on me.
JESUS please please, shine your light on me.

For I hunger for you.
Yes LORD, I'm thirsty too.
You said those that hunger for your will shall be filled.

JESUS please shine your light on me.
Yes LORD make my blind eyes see.
LORD I open my heart to you.
Help me LORD I'm thirsty too.

JESUS please shine your light on me.
JESUS please shine your light on me.
Help me see LORD, help me see.
JESUS please, shine your light on me.

JESUS please, JESUS please

Journey of a man's life

Written By: Harvey Pinkney

Journey of a Man's Life

There's a wise man in the mountains, and He's on my mind.
In a world that is confused, HE speaks of peace that I must find.

He says.

Hate hurts the hater, it can eat like a disease.
Let every man share his rewards with a needy few.
Live in peace with everyone, let your conscience rest at ease.
This is what you are placed here to do.

All along the journey, of a man's life.
This is the way that it should be.
All along the journey, of a man's life.
Open your eyes and you will see.

A man of understanding spoke these words to me.
Get wisdom from the LORD there will be nothing you can’t be.

He said.

With all your getting, get understanding in your life.
Show some love for the other man, today.
Love, peace and happiness, can be found at the end of the fight.
Time is precious but it will soon be gone away.

This is the journey, of a man's life.
This is the way that it should be.
This is the journey, of a man's life.
Open your eyes and you will see.

The SPIRIT OF GOD was heavy on what HE had to say.
For the instruction of this man was right in every way.

HE said.

Wisdom is the key to accomplishment; you must seek it with your heart.
It is better to give than to receive.
Let's all work together everyone has got to do his part.
What's important is what remains when you leave.

So is the journey, of a man's life.
This is the way that it should be.
So is the journey, of a man's life.
Open your eyes and you will see.

Jesus Says

Written By: Harvey Pinkney

Jesus Says

If you're wondering why, the crime rate is so high.
If you're wondering why, there's social upheaval, I'll tell you why.
The condition of our world, is at the point of moral decay.
There's no telling when we could reach the end, it could happen any day.
You see this whole world is lying in darkness, and does man have the cure?
Will the wisdom of man and all of his plans, cause this planet to endure?

JESUS says. Who has an ear let him hear.
JESUS says. For these things there's judgment on man.
JESUS says. I come quickly, all the world will fear.
JESUS says. The time is at hand.

Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart were only evil continually. And the Lord was sorry that HE made man on the earth and HE was grieved in HIS heart. And behold I myself am bringing flood waters on the earth to destroy from under heaven all flesh in which is the breath of life. Everything that is on the earth shall die. [Genesis 6: 5-6, 17 NKJV]

There's more to life than meets the eye, time and chance happen to all.
Cause we'll never learn to live with each other, this whole world's got to fall.
We'll never learn to come together, to share in each other's needs.
There will always be those, who'll continue to live, in their murder, thefts and greed.
You see your lust to make a dollar, is the reason for worldwide strife.
Because you value a small piece of paper, more than you do another man's life; but

JESUS says. Can you have peace without the PRINCE OF PEACE.
JESUS says. Will it prosper without THE CHRIST.
JESUS says. A strong delusion instead you will receive.
JESUS says. You'll believe the lie.

And THE LORD said because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great and because their sin is very grave. I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry against it that has come to me and if not I will know. (I WILL KNOW)[emphasis mine]. Then THE LORD rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah from THE LORD out of the heavens. [Genesis 18: 20-21, 19:24 NKJV]

Be conformed to HIS image and leave this world behind.
Take HIS yoke upon you, be transformed in your mind.
He's preparing a place for those, who have come to know and love HIM.
For those that are found, in HIS perfect will, when HE comes again.
You see the thing that a man loves, that's where his heart is.
But love of the world is against GOD, you’ve got to lose your life, if you want to live.

JESUS says. I come and my rewards with ME.
JESUS says. I've sent my Angel with these WORDS.
JESUS says. I'll give to every man as his work shall be.
JESUS says. So know what you've heard.

JESUS says. Who has an ear let him hear.
JESUS says. For these things there's judgment on man.
JESUS says. I come quickly, all the world will fear.
JESUS says. The time is at hand.
JESUS says. Behold, I come.

What is Truth? (A Parable)

Written By: Harvey Pinkney

What is Truth? (A Parable)

What is TRUTH?
Was the great question of all time.
Asked the ruler as he washed his hands.

Some people will search for it but never find.
Spoke the reliable and faithful Man.
And sincerely speaking with confirmation of fact.
The MASTER honestly and accurately revealed what's exact.

Saying.

This is truth and it flies through the air.
And it’s for the wise to find.
The truth that makes excuses bare.
This truth is for the changing of minds.
Cuts to the roots...this truth.

This GENTLEMAN that everyone comes to see.
From far and near to hear HIS lofty words.

Will HE expound great truths to you and me.
For HE speaks of things that we've never heard.
And as the mob closed on HIM and around.
The MASTER silently refused to utter a sound.

cause...

This is truth and it flies through the air.
And its for the wise to find.
The truth that makes excuses bare.
This truth is for the changing of minds.

Cuts to the roots...this truth.

How do you find it?
Where will you search for it?
How can you recognize it?
Where will it be found?

This MAN who brought it.
When HE had spoken it.
This MAN had showed it.
He was its very sound.

And in ridding themselves of established fact.
In not regarding what alone was true.
The people kept living in a mental lack.
In not acknowledging existing truths.

If the had only submitted to things unlearned.
They would have found that with the heart it's earned.

cause...

This is truth and it flies through the air.
And it’s for the wise to find.
The truth that makes excuses bare.

This truth is for the changing of minds.
Cuts to the roots...this truth.
Cuts to the roots...this truth.

Power from on high

Written By: Harvey Pinkney

Power from on High

Power from on High.. Power from on High.. Power from on High.. Power from on High..

I've told you once now I'll tell you again.
He that comes to JESUS must depart from sin.
He speaks expressly now I'll give you the clue.
If you'd escape what would happen to you.

He'll give you a new identity.
Set you on course to your destiny.

Power received
When on your knees.
Will set you free.

All you need's a little more.

Power from on High.. Power from on High.. Power from on High.. Power from on High..

Seventy years on earth or just a little more.
Your life's a vapor what are you placed here for?
Show forth the truth while you have the time.
Self-direction is man's biggest crime.

On the surface the rich look okay.
All that he has will burn on that dreaded day.

As he didn't seek the true relief.
He could not see.

All he need's a little more...

Power from on High.. Power from on High.. Power from on High.. Power from on High..

The time is coming when all things will end.
Then will be revealed that evil man of sin.
This mortality must be swallowed up.
And now the earth will drink from HIS cup.

Releasing the captives my JESUS holds the key.
HE’s the only way out for you and me.

Power received.
When on your knees.
Will set you free.

All you need's a little more...

Power from on High.. Power from on High.. Power from on High.. Power from on High..
Power from on High.. Power from on High.. Power from on High.. Power from on High..

Give me a little more power….
(Adlib)
