Feeling a bit camera shy


Only God could bring these annointed minstrels together for such a time as this!

Prior to becoming Sounds of Fire, these ministers were already spreading the Gospel. Sounds of Fire includes a pastor, a choir director, Gospel song writers, and praise team and choir leaders. Some of the ministers have already worked with noteable Gospel greats, such as Grammy Award nominee Joe Pace of Colorado Mass. Some have even done background vocals for ministers such as Helen Baylor, Vanessa Bell Armstrong, and Byron Cage.

Gradually, God brought them all together to be members of a powerful church called My Fathers House International Christian Discipleship Center, to be discipled under the solid and empowering teachings of the senior pastor, Leslie Richardson.

Sounds of Fire, also known as SOF, has a unique flavor of Gospel. Because of the teachings their senior pastor, the lyrics are targeted to minister far beyond the diluted lyrics that are becoming more and more commonplace in today's Gospel music. According to song writer and co-producer Tymesha Brewer, "we want to minister the matters of the heart and the promises of God to His people."

The music is a refreshing and much needed alternative to much of today's Gospel music. For producer Gerald "Noiz" Brewer, "(our music) is the presence of today's technology fused with the contemporary jazz, R&B, and disco of the '70s and early '80s." Producer Lily Richardson humorously prefers to be more succinct, "Hmmmm...I would describe it as jazzy."

But it's not all jazzy. "Jamaican Praize" is gauranteed to make you wish you were "pon de island" praising God while drinking a virgin pina colada. And "Same God" is definitely influenced by the today's hip-hop, complete with Gerald "Noiz" Brewer's own feelings about some of the rappers that he's heard:

"I don't understand how you rap about the fanny,
(but) turn around and thank God when you get a Grammy"

No matter what professional description or opinion someone may give about the music of SOF, it's the words of Gospel music supporters that count. Although many have said that they like the whole CD, there's always at least one song that makes people say:

"That's my song!"
