Emerging female duo AsOne delivers an innovative sound to the industry with their self-titled debut album release AsOne (360 MusicWorx/Capitol Christian Distribution/Universal Music Group) available in stores and online everywhere on iTunes , Google Play, and Amazon.
From the very first song to the very last, you are taken on a captivating musical journey with lush orchestrated ballads, exciting gospel-influenced up-tempos with heart-pounding percussion, and awe-inspiring rock-prevalent guitar riffs, all crashing into gigantic hooks. Modern melodies paired with the symphony of strings that works its way through the choruses are powerfully unexpected.
Lisa Wright and Theresa Bailey, who are the first interracial female duo in music history, co-wrote all the songs on their album with production by Nashville stalwart and Stellar Award-winning producer Paul Wright — known for his production credits on Fred Hammond’s “Page of Life 1 & 2″ and Hezekiah Walker’s “Live In London,” among others.
The eight-track album features 10-time Grammy Award winner Mark Kibble of Take 6 on “You Prayed Me Through,” Stellar Award-winning Christian Rapper Da’ T.R.U.T.H on the African-inspired sounds of standout track “One” with backing vocal contributions from award-winning aggregation artist Lamar Campbell and Spirit of Praise — who’s also featured on the lead single “Hero” and on “Love Won,” a musical testimony of overcoming. “Love Is a Better Way,” featuring one of gospel music and Nashville’s top acts The McCrary Sisters, zooms full speed ahead from its beginning with its rhythmic, horn-filled instrumentation and messages of hope.
There’s no doubt about it, this groundbreaking release is intelligent, artistic and inspiring. It’s that very call for unity and racial harmony that is so desperately needed in times like these. It’s everything but ordinary and is destined to make a monumental difference everywhere.
