Nashville-based record label Soul ATK Music readies to release “Pieces,” the new urban and contemporary gospel music and spoken word album by emerging recording artist, Trisha Alicia. It was announced today by Soul ATK Music’s head-of-label operations, Orlando Boyd, who will coordinate projects associated with the labels’ artists and brand management.
“Pieces,” with music featuring Canton Jones and Antonio Neal, is full of urban contemporary Christian songs and spoken word that boasts declarations of what God is doing, for those committed to trusting in Him. From the intro, a short piece that gives a grounding of who Trisha is and why the project was necessary, to the title track, “Pieces”-the story of Trisha and another woman who, despite setbacks come to Christ and say take my pieces and make them into something beautiful-this project is sure to please.
The creative body of work takes the listener on an inspirational journey with songs to include, “Gold Rags,” “Jesus You’re There,” “Promises,” “You Told Me,” “Everyone,” and “He Loves Me” as well as, the clever spoken word piece, “Heart Song,” illustrating what the bible says about Christ knowing us from the beginning of time. –Since he knew us, that means we also knew him, spiritually. But when we got to earth, because of sin, we couldn’t quite remember his voice. Salvation is how we return to the voice that we’ve always known. “This is my heart song that I’ve been singing since forever…forgot the lyrics but I still know the melody,” says Trisha.
When asked, what she wants people to take away from her project? Trisha answers emphatically, “I want people to see God more deeply, more richly and perhaps, even more adequately. He’s given us so much that we let life persuade us not to chase.” She continues to add; “I want those who experience the project to feel like they see God differently than before-to feel hopeful and maybe even more creative! We all have gifts that Christ wants to manifest more powerfully. ”
Intelligent, beautiful, and creative with a huge personality and quirky sense of humor, Trisha Alicia is creating a niche, and becoming a mainstay in the music industry, one lyric at a time.
