The tone for the next wave in worship is being providentially set by gospel’s sultry tenor Keith Williams with his aptly titled debut album TONE FOR WORSHIP, available in stores and online everywhere via EPM Music Group/eOne.
A well of Urban-tinged inspirational numbers flowing alongside Williams’ highly touted tenor stylings, the combination results in a 10 song, non-stop praise narrative that easily sets the pace for a pure praise and worship session for listeners.
Williams, a classically trained pianist and vocalist, lists his name aboard writing credits for all but three of the album’s songs with the help of co-producer Robert Ellis, Jr. Boasting a talented accompanying guest list, the likes of Marque Walker (Vickie Winans, Tye Tribbett) and Carlos Woodard produced two of the album’s highlight tracks ‘“All For You” and “I Believe God” the latter written by Gerald Jones and Justin Francis. The latter has been appointed the album’s second single, the follow-up to lead single “As For Me and My House”.
“House”, the Chicago-styled stepper tunes boasting production from Mark Jackson (Trey Songz), has stepped its way right into the hearts of listeners worldwide – resonating as a captivating number for gospel and R&B music lovers.
Other notable numbers include “Holy To You” – a powerful guitar driven track enlisting the help of EPM label imprint head Earnest Pugh – glows as one of the album’s ‘must hear’, standout tracks. Along with its smooth title track, the dectet of tunes unite to demonstrate the album was not named in vain for it truly, like its moniker implies, sets the tone for worship.
