8/9/2011 - Former Jump5 Member, Brittany Hargest, Releases Debut Solo Single
Few recording artists achieve true career longevity. Even fewer grow up right before our eyes. Brittany Hargest has done both at a young age. After a 10 year run, and selling over 1.5 million records with Christian pop-supergroup Jump5, Hargest is ready to go ‘all the way’ with her new single and album.
While known for her vocal ability in Jump5, Brittany is also finding her place as a songwriter on “Love All The Way”, the first single and title track to her forthcoming album due September 27 on SoulStride Records (EMI-CMG).
In fact, Brittany lent her writing efforts to the majority of songs on the album which includes collaborations from multi Dove Award and Grammy nominee Aaron Rice (tobyMac, Rachael Lampa, Mandisa, Addison Road), Dove Award winner and Grammy nominee Jamie Moore, (tobyMac, Ayiesha Woods, Mandisa) and several other hit songwriters. Listeners will find LOVE ALL THE WAY to be lyrically and musically mature, while featuring the same energy and high paced sound that Brittany was known for in Jump5.
“Love All The Way” finished it’s debut week in the iTunes store among the most downloaded singles in the Christian genre. The single has just gone for adds at Christian AC radio.
“I had such an amazing time writing and making this record; working with old and new friends,” explained Hargest. “I really wanted this record to be all about God and the incredible way He loves us; and that even though we may not feel worthy of that love, He still does - no matter what.”
“When we launched SoulStride Records earlier this year we knew it was important to make a big statement with our first couple of releases. Brittany’s LOVE ALL THE WAY fits that bill perfectly,” says label co-president Aaron Rice. “This collection of pop-songs from a young woman who has literally grown up in the Christian music business is exactly the kind of album we were hoping for. And we look forward to working with Brittany for a long time.”
Brittany will be touring with her band throughout the fall in support of LOVE ALL THE WAY.
