On tour with TobyMac this fall & winter/spring 2020
It was just last November when Gotee Records announced Cochren & Co. joined its artist family and debuted songs "Church (Take Me Back)" and "Grave." Today, the group, led by Michael Cochren, releases its newest single, titled "One Day," which is available now at all music providers.
”None of us are strangers to the brokenness of this life," Cochren shared about the new song. "We’ve all experienced firsthand the pain of loss, illness and injustice. As we look around this world, it’s easy to feel hopeless, but thank God we are promised more than this world. We are promised heaven. That’s the hope I’m clinging to, the hope of healing for all creation.”
Written by Cochren along with producer Bryan Fowler (for Man Cub Music House) and Matt Armstrong, "One Day" was recorded at Zach Brown’s Southern Ground Studios in Nashville and engineered by Joe Baldridge (Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley). The song features award-winning musicians drummer Paul Mabury (Lauren Daigle), bass player Jacob Lowery (Michael McDonald), Christopher Stevens and Mike Payne. The new single also features the B-side song, “Heart and Soul (The Sienna Session),” also written by Cochren along with Taylor Agan and Justin Amundrud.
Cochren & Co. will be the special guest on the “TobyMac: The Theatre Tour” throughout November. The band is also part of the lineup for the 2020 “TobyMac Hits Deep Tour,” which will also feature Tauren Wells, Jordan Feliz, We Are Messengers, and labelmates Ryan Stevenson and Aaron Cole. Tickets are on sale now at KLOVE.com and TobyMac.com. For the most updated tour schedule, be sure to visit Cochren & Co.'s tour page.
To date, Cochren & Co.’s debut Top 10 Billboard Christian Airplay hit single, “Church (Take Me Back),” has received more than 13 million combined streams across Apple Music, Pandora, Spotify and YouTube. The song also received a 2019 K-LOVE Fan Awards nomination for Breakout Single of the Year.
As a worship leader at his hometown church, Cochren's piano-based soulful pop sound has been influenced by artists such as Billy Joel, Needtobreathe and Ray Charles. After signing with First Company Management (Newsboys, Ryan Stevenson), his music was sent to Gotee Records' CEO Toby McKeehan.
“The soulfulness this man exudes brings pleasure to my ears as well as my heart,” TobyMac shared. "His passion for the church is so refreshing and real. Michael is a true songwriter, because he puts words to my own feelings and his voice takes us places we all want to go!”
