BAND BIO

Armed with inspirational lyrics and world class musicianship, NEWWORLDSON rescues soul music from being a mere genre and returns the art form to its sacred roots. Singer Joel Parisien says "if you trace back the roots of 'roots' music, of 'soul' music, of 'folk' music, it's about folks; it's social music. We hope our fans become our family. We hope they leave our shows feeling inspired. Our ministry is about uplifting people." With the force of an orchestra, Josh Toal (guitar, vocals), Rich Moore (bass, vocals), Mark Rogers (drums) and Parisien (vocals, keys) come together to form a revolutionary four-piece gospel combo. Individually, each member began his professional career entertaining mainstream music fans in clubs and concert halls around the world. It was in this setting where they learned to be bold in their faith, unapologetically invoking the presence of the Holy Spirit in these most unlikely places. Since those early days, their profile has skyrocketed. After signing with Nashville based Inpop records, Newworldson was invited to open up the newsboys' hugely successful Go tour (Fall '07 -- Spring '08), showcasing their unique, kinetic style of praise and worship to thousands of Christian music fans across North America. And like their live show, their debut 11-song CD "Salvation Station" also mixes motion and devotion. Recently they have won 2007 Covenant Awards from GMA Canada for "Best New Artist" and "Roots/Folk album of the year". They are also presentlynominated for a 2008 JUNO Award for "Best Christian/Gospel Album of the year" for "Roots Revolution". With skills honed in the trenches, these special agents are pushing back the darkness and answering God's call to recruit souls for His Kingdom. Their blend of pop, soul, jazz and gospel is unlike anything going on in popular music today. Four sons of the New World, and their story has just begun.
