UK Gospel soulful songstress, Sarah Téibo has announced the release of her new album, ‘Keep Walking’, with a sold out album release concert and live recording at London’s Pizza Express Live Jazz Club on June 29, 2018.
The album, which is the artist’s sophomore project is made up of 10 tracks featuring some of the biggest names in American and British Gospel and includes a remix of the hit track, ‘Like A Child’, showcasing a collaboration with Gospel Music living legend Fred Hammond.
Backed by a successful Pledge Music campaign, ‘Keep Walking’ follows on from Sarah’s first album, ‘Walk With Me’, released in May 2016.
Like her first album, ‘Keep Walking’ is filled with catchy hooks, scintillating riffs and messages of encouragement and inspiration. Personal messages made all the more real for Sarah following the death of her mother late last year. Wrestling with grief, anger, sadness and loss, Sarah found solace in her songs, reminded that in the midst of our pain, Christ is our hope and strength.
“People are lacking hope, people are fearful and uncertain about the future. We all face crazy trials that are overwhelming at times. We need more positive, encouraging messages. Resilience, pulling-through, fighting-through, they are messages we need to keep hearing in music and are messages I want to share with people; that no matter what, they can keep walking.” said Sarah.
Produced by Luke ‘GKID’ Grant and Shaun ‘Hypertone’ Barrett, ‘Keep Walking’ features appearances from Fred Hammond, Muyiwa, The Voice UK singer Jason Nicholson-Porter, Lisa McClendon, up and coming singer Tehillah Daniel, afro-gospel artist Andrew Bellow and UK rapper Tneek.
Album title track, ‘Keep Walking’, is a beautiful, melodic ballad encouraging the listener to keep going, in-spite of setbacks. Incorporating Sarah’s strong Motown influences coupled with her love for live instruments, ‘Keep Walking’ features a live harp which gives the singer’s soulful sound a classical overture.
‘Blessed’ is an energetic, vibrant Afrobeat Summer track featuring the UK’s Muyiwa Olanrewaju and Andrew Bello. Recorded in the midst of Sarah’s grief, the message of the song is simply to remember to count your blessings. Even when things appear bleak, we can find something to celebrate.
Instant hit, ‘Like a Child featuring Jason Nicholson-Porter and Tehillah Daniel’ was the first single released off the album in January 2018. The remix version gives the song a playful, edgy, funk makeover featuring Gospel mega-star, Fred Hammond.
About working with Fred, Sarah said, “it has been a dream come true to work with Fred. He is one of my music icons, so for him to feature with me on a song I wrote is just surreal. ‘Like A Child’ is one of my favourite songs on the album but Fred adding his flair and creativity to it has just taken it to another level.”
