Nashville, TN (August 27, 2021)
Known for his show-stopping, electrifying vocals—both as an award-winning solo artist and a former member of the world-renowned Gaither Vocal Band—singer/songwriter David Phelps returns September 10 with GameChanger. A sonic kaleidoscope of 15 pop, jazz, Inspirational, R&B and even Broadway-inspired selections, Phelps’ StowTown Records debut carries deeply personal and profoundly resonant messages of redemption and unity.
“While some might think GameChanger is a departure for me, it’s really just the next step in my development as an artist; this is who I am,” Phelps shares of the album, which he co-produced with his nephew, Grayson Proctor. “I started out in contemporary music before I joined the Gaither Vocal Band. I was blessed to be part of that amazing, iconic group and I loved those years very much, but I am and always have been a stylist, and that makes my music and career very eclectic.”
Debut single “Hello Beautiful” is a bittersweet tribute to lifelong commitment backed by a syncopated, horn-studded rhythm section. Additional highlights of GameChanger include the synth-pop album opener “I’m Gonna Love”; “Song For Sinners,” with a mellow jazz groove gently beckoning wayward hearts; “I Remember What We Thought Love Was,” a poignant piano ballad dedicated to Phelps’ wife; and “Eye To Eye,” a soulful duet with his son, Grant, exploring the complexities of their relationship.
