Nashville, TN (August 4, 2022)
Returning from the success of ‘Made A Way Remix’ from Bella Dawn Music and MNRK Music—Nashville indie distribution division, Indie Blu Digital Distribution, Billboard award-winning Gospel artist and songwriter, Keyondra Lockett has released her much-anticipated new single, ‘Liar,’ now available across all digital outlets.
‘Liar’—produced by hitmaker Jeshua “Tedy P” Williams and written by BMI Award winning songwriter Keyondra Lockett—delivers an infectious smooth groove with powerful lyrics and a ‘must-have’ in your playlist.
When asked to share about the back story of ‘Liar,’ Keyondra says, “the devil is tricky and schematic. You’ve got to have the Holy Ghost to carry you in all situations. When Peter tried to stop Christ from going to the cross, he told Peter, ‘Satan get thee behind me,’ (Matthew 16:23),” she adds. “He knew that was the devil talking through Peter and that’s exactly what we’ve got to do when we’re tested by the devil.”
The multiple chart-topping independent recording artist is a native of Shreveport, Louisiana and one of the great voices of our time. Keyondra is a soulful inspirational artist with a fervor for Kingdom building. She is one of the original members of gospel group Zie’l and shares the accomplishment of two-time Stellar Award nominee.
She has shared the stage with artists such as Yolanda Adams, Karen Clark-Sheard, Kierra Sheard, The Clark Sisters, Livre, Tye Tribbett, Kirk Franklin, Mary Mary, The Walls Group, Alexis Spight and many more.

Her album, The Heal (9/21/18) first week sales yielded Lockett positive results on the Billboard Current Gospel Albums Chart at #9.
