INSPIRATIONS - The One In The Water
If you were raised on the sounds of the Gospel Singing Jubilee or if traditional Quartet harmonies delivered with exuberance and heartfelt earnestness speak to your heart, then you will love this new release from one of the most important groups in the history of Southern Gospel Music. The Inspirations' legacy of classic quartet-style singing shines through on "The One In The Water."
This album marks the return of instantly recognizable vocalists Archie Watkins, Eddie Deitz and Marlon Shubert. They join Matt Dibler and Roland Kesterson along with band members Luke Vaught and Casey Johnson to offer a selection of songs that represent the finest in traditional Christian music.
The lead-off title track sets the tone of the album with Archie on lead vocals. It's old-time Gospel with piano and acoustic instrumentation and passionate quartet vocals. The album also features up-tempo songs of praise and thankfulness, as in "When Jesus Turns My Prison Into My Shouting Ground." Sung by Roland Kesterson, the song celebrates God's promises amidst life's hardships.
The recording offers plenty of variety. "Teaching Me To Fly" is a ballad sung by Archie Watkins which speaks on how God wants to see us mature and grow spiritually. The group is no stranger to patriotic songs and they've included a great one, "We Are Christians." "Thank God For Preachers" is another standout song with both a sentimental and thankful message wrapped in perhaps the recording's most catchy melody.
From its beginnings in 1964 through today, listeners have experienced the ongoing legacy of The Inspirations. Preserving both a traditional Gospel sound, as well as traditional Christian values, The Inspirations have never lost sight of these very important things. Experience their current lineup on "The One In The Water."
