Through the past few years and all that has happened in his life, Camp has realized the urgency of speaking louder to all.
"I have walked through the valleys, the mountains, and plains," shares Camp. "That's why I'm speaking up, that's why I'm speaking now and loud."
It is this newfound passion that is stirring Camp to stand up this week. One of the events that will be taking place around his anticipated release includes an online debut of the title track music video at Yahoo! Music, the premiere online music news source. Check it out tomorrow.

To officially enter the contest, fans are to create a video, email the posted link to firstname.lastname@example.org and spread the word about their video to family and friends.

The debut radio single "There Will Be A Day" has hugely impacted radio as it has shot up to the Top 10 in every format with increased spins weekly including No. 1 at AC Indicator. Amongst all the buzz around this album online, at retail and radio, the media are also beginning to post their comments about the CD. Check out what outlets are already saying:
"This effort on the whole seems to carry more emotional and musical heft than some of Camp's previous recordings, as though he's finally figured out how to hone both the challenges and triumphs he faced in early adulthood -- losing his first wife to cancer mere months after they wed, remarrying, becoming a father -- into increasingly effective songwriting and music-making."
-- The Tennessean
"A fresh start and a stirring message that resonates with listeners"
-- R&R Magazine
"Jeremy nails every song ... the rockers, the ballads, the pop worship anthems. The first single, "There Will be a Day," has already been a huge hit with radio and believe me, the other 11 songs on the release are just as good. This is one of those releases that should be a "must have" on your list."
also listed "Speaking Louder Than Before" in Top Albums of 2008
"No matter what the topic, Camp once again grows as a writer and vertically focused entertainer whose continuously developing testimony is just as inspiring as the reflections sewn across Speaking Louder Than Before."
"Always relatable and always relevant, this rocker with a preacher's heart shows us what it means to live out loud."
