Arden, NC. (July 30, 2018) – Gospel singer Steve Ladd is continuing to spread the word of Christ by crafting music for all tastes with his newest project, “Come Up Clean” on Sonlite Records. With powerhouse vocals and music that brings in elements of other genres, Ladd creates an upbeat and soulful EP that carries a traditional message in a modern way. Find Steve Ladd on the web here.
The first single, â€œThe Thing About A Valley,â€ sets the tone with its contemporary, upbeat music and message that â€œthe thing about a valleyâ€ is that it reminds you to look up to God in times of darkness.
That track is followed by â€œHe Has Made A Way,â€ with vocals that build up, giving God great praise, which naturally flows into â€œI Never Lost My Praise,â€ a slower, but intensely soulful song about always rejoicing in Godâ€™s goodness, no matter what else is lost in life.
The title track, â€œCome Up Cleanâ€ closes the EP, rejoicing in the power of Baptism and its ability to wash away transgressions of all kinds. The track features the vocals of Jason Crabb.
The collection of songs comes together to form an energetic proclamation that God is good no matter what weâ€™ve done or whatâ€™s been done to us.
“I’m so excited for listeners to hear Come Up Clean! I feel like it’s my best effort to date,â€ says Steve Ladd. â€œCody McVey outdid himself producing this project and to have my friend Jason Crabb lend his unforgettable voice on the title track was the icing on the cake! I truly hope these songs will touch and bless people like they have me.”
Come Up Clean will be available from Sonlite Records on September 28. Pre-order it HERE.
About Steve Ladd
As early as five years old while growing up in Dayton, Ohio, Steve Ladd felt the call of God to minister through song. The son of an evangelist, the youngster would mature to become one of the most well-liked and respected group member for some of Americaâ€™s most award-winning Christian music ensembles like Gold City and The Anchormen. Although still considered a young artist, Ladd has spent the last four years traveling extensively both domestically and internationally. Performing inspirational songs like â€œPreach the Wordâ€ has become a personal anthem of encouragement Ladd takes wherever he goes and he reports â€œGod moves and lives that are broken and hurting are leaving changed and encouraged at my services.â€ Professionally, Ladd has been inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, nominated for â€œNew Artist of the Year,â€ has had five Top 40 Singles and on release day, and his latest album, No Excuses, No Regrets was in the Top 20 chart for iTunes Christian music. Steve, his wife, and two children are also ministry partners with Compassion International. While the beginning of an extraordinary journey started with his family, evolved into being an integral part of some of the most award-winning Christian ensembles, the last few years as a solo artist have proven the Lordâ€™s faithfulness in his family, his ministry, and his life.
