Nashville, TN, (June 24, 2021)
Gotee Records welcomes new artist, Joseph O’Brien to the family with the release of his label debut single and music video, “Give Up On Love” available everywhere now.
“I am so proud to have signed Joseph O’Brien to Gotee,” said TobyMac. “I love that we’re launching him with a song like, ‘Give Up On Love.’ I’ve always said that some songs from believers should be about trying to fight for a God perspective in everyday earth things … songs that remind us to bring everything to the King and allowing God to speak into it because He is part of everything we experience on this earth – the good, the bad and the ugly. Joseph’s honesty in his writing is going to be impactful in our genre and I am so excited he’s a part of the Gotee family.”
O’Brien echoes TobyMac’s enthusiasm saying, “Growing up, before I even knew what a label was, hands down my two favorite artists were TobyMac and Relient K. Cliché I know, but the feeling of being on a label founded by Toby and Relient K on the roster is beyond description. The label’s building already seems like a second home, the people a second family, and getting the opportunity to release music with and through them that glorifies the Lord is nothing short of the best kind of dream.
As a Relient K and TobyMac fan for 20 straight years now, I can officially say I am stunned beyond reason that I am on a label where both parties are involved. The goal has always been to serve the Lord through music, and now I have a team of people, who quickly are becoming my second family, that affirms and trusts in what God has called me to do. I’m stoked, yet extremely humbled to be with Gotee and I hope people’s lives are changed through what we put out in the coming days.”
Bred from a musical family O’Brien started his own journey at age 12, with his talents eventually taking him to the quarter finals of America’s Got Talent.
O’Brien co-produced his Gotee debut single, “Give Up On Love,” with Adam Turley and wrote it alongside Zach Bowsher. The music video for the song was directed and produced by Elliott Eicheldinger. O’Brien is managed by the MWS Group.
