The Old Paths announce new album, Music To Your Ears

Arden, North Carolina (February 2, 2022) — In these trying times, there is a lot to be said for clinging to tradition – but there is also a need to move forward, to find new ways to express the enduring message of deliverance of the gospel. For many artists, one or the other becomes paramount. AT The old paths, however, it is not necessary to choose; Masters of the traditional sounds of Southern Gospel, they proved equally confident in delivering the flair of contemporary sounds from other areas of Christian music.

The band’s distinctive musical gifts are at the center of their new full-length release for Sonlite discs, Music to your ears — Which one is now available for pre-order, add and save in front of his March 18 Release.

With two singles already released – the country radio hit, “How Good News Is Good” and contemporary fan favorite, “Every story whispers its name” — which have drawn contrasting angles of the stylistic spectrum of the quartet, it is a collection that completes the portrait of a musical ministry that can speak to everyone. And with a new single coming soon – a revamp inspired by “Good God Almighty” by David Crowder which features the tenor Steve Ladd – as they head towards the album release date, it’s also a compelling demonstration that no matter where a song comes from, The old paths will always put their unique mark on it.

Indeed, with the help of the famous producer Roger Talley, Music to your ears invites the listener to approach each of its selections with new ears. There are classic old numbers like “This little light that belongs to me” new takes “Up the next hill we’ll be home” (Johnny Cash), “Is He Worthy” (Chris Tomlin) and “That’s Why I Pray” (Big & Rich)and a sparkling lineup of new songs from well-known Southern Gospel writers like Kenna Turner West and Joseph Habedank. From the charming and sparse opening of “Let the rain wash away your troubles” which features the bass singer Daniel Ashmoreto the string-driven title track, led by founding member Tim Rackley, and the soul “He bought me” which includes another founding member and baritone, Douglas Roark — and even to “That Little Light” which introduces each member in turn – each song receives a treatment that allows The old paths detailed art to shine, and always in service of their devoted faith.

“We are so excited for fans to hear this new album,” said Steve Ladd. “I think it’s the best we’ve released since I joined the band. We’ve chosen songs that match each of our personalities, and we believe these songs represent what we want to say as a band in 2022! Roger Talley, musicians and engineers absolutely brought this project to life. We are excited about the future, we are NOT afraid of it! I can’t wait to hear the stories of how God is using these songs to touch people’s lives.
