Ethan Kent is a new face in gospel, but he has been garnering much attention in the process of developing his musical career and preparing for his national debut release. His single “My Hope Is In Glory” reached the Top 30 BDS Gospel Radio chart this spring and is back in the Top 30 again. “‘My Hope Is In Glory’ is one of my favorite morning drive songs to play on air,” states Carter Garrett of WTOY Radio, Roanoke, VA. “It’s deeply rooted in the Word, and has a nice contemporary smooth beat!”

Ethan has an edge and freshness to his music artistry. Describing his sound would include tossing in a mix of genres including jazz, classical, soul and pop that is bound together by the contemporary sound of gospel.
Ethan recorded a live video version of the single that has become a youtube hit. “My Hope Is In Glory” is a stylish visual of a hip performance by Kent and showcases his skillful musicality and passion for his craft.
The summer has been a preparatory journey for the budding artist. Ethan has traveled much of the South and East Coast promoting his WORK IN PROGRESS CD which will soon release on his own Tonic Blueprint label with distribution via Central South Distribution. Ethan’s upcoming appearances include the WCAO Radio Gospel Cruise on August 10 in Baltimore, MD and he is scheduled to appear at the Shoutfest 2013 in Augusta, SC presented by WAAW Shout 94 FM Radio.
