His sophomore album A New Thing Live, recorded at Birmingham Christian Centre in 2017 is now ready for release. It cannons 17 beautifully penned songs and features some of the UK’s finest vocalists including UK gospel legend Nicky Brown, Becca Folkes, Israel J. Allen and worship artist Lucy Grimble.
Bringing in production powerhouses like London’s Adrian Moore (Stormzy/ Ray Blk/ New-Ye), Nashville’s Paul Salvo (Israel Houghton, Mercy Me, William McDowell) and Cape Town’s Mark Montgomery (Joyous Celebration), this body of work is poised to make waves across the globe.
Seth is excited about A New Thing Live; “This record is more than an album to me, it’s a statement. Everything we’ve got has gone into this, the times we are living in calls for timeless music. The songs and sounds come from our story from Windrush to Classical, Funk, Jazz, Acoustic, R&B, Rock and Electric – there’s something for everybody. The album is a river in the desert, the worship captured on that night not only refreshes, it washes over you. I’m so excited to share it with you, its the secret sauce!”
A New Thing Live is the follow up to ‘Midnight Oil: Live In Worship’, which featured the chart topping hit song ‘Already Done’ and consolidated Seth’s position as a UK gospel artist of note. The album received many awards with songs translated into French and Spanish alongside remixes from Grammy Award winners Donald Lawrence and Myron Butler!
Labelled as the ‘young leader to watch’ by the Tony Blair Foundation and awarded as one of ‘Britain’s Top 10 Black Students’ at the House of Commons, this Architecture graduate is also the founder of ‘Symphony Co’ a social enterprise famed for hosting one of the UK’s biggest independent Christian youth gatherings for over a decade. He is a senior leader at Tearfund heading up the global NGOs efforts in Afro-Caribbean engagement and in his spare time of course runs a clothing line!
When asked why he’s involved in so much, he replied “It’s the pain of my past that fuels me. I had had a lot of challenges when I was younger, struggled with depression, anxiety and rejection mainly because of the trauma I experienced in my teens which was so dark and so difficult. I felt my life had no purpose, but faith pulled me through. I feel my mantra now is to build platforms and create spaces for people to become all that God has called them to be. It’s a big blessing that I get to do this through what I love – music, ministry and mission.”
Due for release on June 7th 2019 and a tour scheduled for later this year, the albums magnetic music and catchy lyrics, is sure to be one that will have you singing in your shower, kitchen and car for many years to come.
