The Sound Releases Debut Recording with New Day Records on Black Friday

NASHVILLE, TN (NOV 27, 2019) —  One of the most highly-anticipated recordings of 2019 releases on Black Friday! The Sound, comprised of singer-songwriters Rob Mills, Levi Mills, and Jacob Mills, is generating the level of excitement for a new family group last seen in Southern Gospel with the arrival of the Booth Brothers.

Make It Count, The Sound’s debut album produced by Scott Godsey for New Day Records (Daywind Music Group), is a musical joyride balanced with soul-searching lyrics that takes the listener on a fantastic journey of encouragement and hope.  The group’s first national radio single, “Can I Get a Witness,” has received significant national airplay and charted as a Singing News magazine top new release.

The band is receiving lots of interest from top promoters across the country.  Clarke Beasley, executive director of the National Quartet Convention, Southern Gospel’s largest event with nearly 50,000 attendees, is an early adopter, stating, “At NQC 2020, we will be presenting The Sound in a featured set for the first time, and we are excited to be able to showcase the immense talent and versatility of this amazing new trio.  We feel certain they have a bright future ahead of them.”

New Day Records’ president, Ed Leonard, shared, “Every once in a great while, a new ‘sound’ emerges in our genre that changes everything.  The youthful energy and talent contained in The Sound, ignited by the Mills’ personal passions for their music, strongly indicates a genre-impacting possibility.  I am so excited to see what they do and can’t wait for people to experience what we have while working with them.”

Producer Scott Godsey added, “I’ve been fortunate to work with many talented bands, but it’s rare to find such gifted musicians and singers with such passion for their craft. The songs and arrangements on this recording will encourage the listener and bring joy to all who hear this music!  I’m excited to see what the future holds for these guys!”

New Day Records is home to The Sound, along with 62nd Grammy® Award nominee Tim Menzies, Lefevre Quartet, HighRoad, and the Griffith Family.  The label is distributed to retail through New Day Christian Distributors and the Orchard, covering all physical, digital, and streaming outlets.

Absolutely Gospel Music
Formed over 19 years ago by Deon & Susan Unthank originally as SoGospelNews.com, the site was birthed from an email discussion group by the same name. The SoGospelNews email discussion list was created by the Unthanks after the Singing News shut down its extremely popular discussion list. SoGospelNews started as a simple webpage listing artists, fans, individuals, etc. that were avid supporters of the newly formed SoGospelNews talk list. The site eventually took on printing news for Southern Gospel artists, and eventually took on reviewing the latest recordings from both signed and independent artists within the small genre. SoGospelNews became the most viewed Southern Gospel website on the Internet with over 4,000,000 hits per month.

The Unthank family are now involved in the site, as well as the addition of over two dozen staff writers. The website is based out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In April 2010, SoGospelNews changed its name to AbsolutelyGospel.com. The name change allows them to cover news items of not only Southern Gospel, but also Country Gospel, Inspirational, and Black Gospel.

On January 5, 2011, Susan Unthank passed away, leaving the website in control of Deon, their son, Chris, and their daughter Amy.
