5-song project offers songs that are an expression of their home church movement, MyLocal
The new project from Nashville-based band Local Sound, “To The King,” releases today (Integrity Music). The five-song EP came together as an expression of the heart of Local Sound’s home church movement, MyLocal.
While being together in each other’s houses week by week, studying scripture and sharing life sparked the inspiration for “To The King.” The band’s team said, “Writing worshipful responses to God’s faithfulness from everyone’s stories, Local Sound’s music is saturated with the nearness of their community, instilling a sense of belonging into the family of God through each song.
“From the project's funk-infused title track to the slower worship on ‘On Christ,’ each song has a different feeling and response to the countless ways the group sees God in their lives as a band and as a church. ‘To The King’ is a call to go beyond listening and to participate in the act of worship, and Local Sound’s hope most of all is to bring listeners closer to Jesus.”
Local Sound is a movement born from within the Nashville-based house church movement MyLocal. Beyond a band, Local Sound is a group of culture creators using art and community “to build God's kingdom in today's society.”
The "local" within Local Sound speaks to the roots of who they are: “fully backing God's dream of ‘the local Church’ and believing that God – the original culture creator – has designed the local church to immerse the world in his eternal culture.
“The ‘sound’ is a reflection of their heart to unite the word of God with highly energetic and innovative music that reaches society. Passionate by a call to spread the gospel through relevant and inspiring message-driven tunes, Local Sound expresses the joy found in a life fully devoted to Christ, and the realization of his deep love song by song.”
