Putting a 21st century arrangement on a 19th century classic hymn, Jermaine Bollinger releases a new single, “The Solid Rock,” to Christian AC-formatted radio outlets today. His latest release, based on “My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less,” is included on Bollinger’s album titled “Classics.”
“The Solid Rock,” written by Bollinger and Edward Mote, follows “Risen,” which debuted at No. 1 at CRC Weekly and is the fourth consecutive chart-topper for Bollinger.
The Christian music industry veteran’s career also has produced the No. 1 singles “Revival, released by Bollinger’s ministry, Little Egypt Worship; “Set Us Free,” which Bollinger released in 2021, and “Beyond,” a single released earlier this year.
Named for Jermaine Jackson from the iconic Jackson 5, Bollinger has developed into an excellent representation of his namesake. Not only is Bollinger a talented singer/songwriter, but the musician plays a variety of instruments, including drums, keyboards, guitar and bass.
Throughout his career, Bollinger has studied with some of the top musicians in their respective fields, including Todd Herreman, recording engineer who worked closely with Prince and Michael Jackson; Terence Ma (vocalist, pianist and founder of The Spaa); Steve Shirk (father to Big Daddy Weave’s Joseph Shirk); Darryl Phinnessee (background vocalist with Michael Jackson and Sheryl Crow); Alan Iarussi (guitarist); and Tommy Taylor (accomplished choral director and minister of music).
When he isn’t involved with music, Bollinger spends time with loved ones, playing basketball and watching Marvel movies. He also spends his free time in graphic design and recording engineering.
