The WriTer’s room
No denying it—Group 1 Crew
stands out in a crowd. Their music
is always on the edge, their shows
are always electric and, especially
in their latest album, Outta
Space Love, their commitment to
reaching those outside the walls of
the church is as clear and focused
as ever. Manwell and Bianca sat
down with CCM to share the heart
behind writing music for this type
of project and how your focus and
purpose drives the writing and
Manwell: We wanted to make a record for
kids who do not listen to Christian music.
That was the whole point of this record.
It’s very evangelical in a sense because we
wanted Christians to be able to grab this
record and show it off to their friends and
really be proud of it. It’s good to make a
record when you’re a Christian group and
even the mainstream cats respect it.
Blanca: The title of this album is crazy
cause it fits the season that we’re in so
well. We’re stepping out of “the norm”
of what Group 1 has done in the past,
but stepping in a good direction. It’s not
like what we’re used to. We want to get
out of space with it… take it somewhere
new and hopefully in that process bring
everyone along for the ride. It’s a cool
place to be—very creative, very exciting.
We’re really proud of what ended up
coming out during the process.
