ETHAN KENT has been establishing his place in gospel music with the anticipated release of his national debut CD. January 21, 2014 marks his release of WORK IN PROGRESS on his own Tonic Blueprint label with distribution by Central South Distributors and marketing and publicity powered by The Bellamy Group. WORK IN PROGRESS is available online and in stores and has a companion EP "Aliens" available exclusively on www.EthanKentOnline.com.
Before the world discovered the genius that is Ethan Kent, he made a name for himself with the urban inspired anthem "Cast Away". With a simple phrase: "there's still hope for the cast away..." Kent established himself as man with a voice for today's gospel music audience. Who hasn't been a cast away? Who hasn't felt the despair of being disconnected? With one song, Kent garnered the attention and appeal of all who heard him. Then he suddenly disappeared.
Where's Ethan?" Listeners mused. "That song, what's the name of it?" People asked, wondered and even forgot about Ethan...until radio airwaves were lit afire with that piano intro followed by "I'm on a journey, tedious journey..." Without a doubt, Ethan Kent is on a journey to the top of gospel charts. Charting on Billboard's gospel charts tops his achievements for 2013, but 2014 is filled with his best days as his best is yet to come.
WORK IN PROGRESS features Ethan's radio chart topping hit "My Hope Is In Glory", a groovin' soulful tune with encouraging testimonial lyrics in which the young and the seasoned can relate. Ethan's new radio single from the project is a beautiful worship ballad "Bring Us To Our Knees" that is impacting radio now.
Ethan is one of this generation's greatest, most innovative producers. Any artist he works with is immediately enhanced with his musical genius attached to the project. Ethan's sound is fresh and rival the best even R&B has to offer in the likes of: P.J. Morton, John Legend and fellow Texan, Houstonian Robert Glasper. -Fred Willis
