Arden, North Carolina â€” With a renewed passion and dedication to their ministry, The Old PathsÂ have returned with Itâ€™s Real, a collection of songs that carries an authentic message rooted in personal experience. The album from Sonlite RecordsÂ is now available everywhere.
Lead singer Tim Rackley says, â€œI am so excited about this new recording Itâ€™s Real. We were so fortunate to find such great songs with a theme throughout the whole project. Each song really gives a great definition of how the Lord has been ministering in our everyday lives. I really feel this new project will let our friends hear the new sound and know â€˜itâ€™s realâ€™ we are back on the road ministering.â€
The quartet wantsÂ this 7-song release toÂ serve as a testimony to the power of faith and bring excitement, encouragement and enlightenment to their audiences.
â€œLord Knows,â€ the first radio single, features bass singer Daniel Ashmore. The song builds to an upbeat and uplifting chorus about how God always knows what someone needs even if theyâ€™re at witâ€™s end.Â The title track, written by Kenna West and Janice Crowe, has Beatles-style harmonies with Roark taking the lead. â€œItâ€™s real, just ask, Iâ€™m a living testimony to the fact, that itâ€™s real, thatâ€™s that,â€ Â Roark sings.Â Rackley takes the lead on the power balledÂ â€œThe God I Know,â€ a Lee BlackÂ and Jerry Salley songÂ testifying thatÂ all of lifeâ€™s trials can be solved through God.Â The EP closes with â€œCome Sunday Morning,â€ featuring tenor singer Steve Ladd. The ballad about the Resurrection story has a strong hook and chorus and uses a common, unspectacular phrase to describe a miraculous story.
While this collection expands the Old Paths’ musical boundaries, all of the songs are intertwined byÂ the message that problems dissolve when Jesus intervenes.
