A staple of Christian radio in the 1980s, Steve Camp, has let it be known that he is working on a new album with producer Tim Miner. “Nashville bound working on the new album!” he posted on Facebook yesterday evening. “My favorite hairstylist Miss Amy sent me off to Nashville with a new haircut today. Going to be working on some new music for my new album with my producer extraordinary Tim Miner. Thank you all for your prayers!”
Camp’s last album, The Definitive Collection, was released in 2007. His first Christian album was 1978’s Sayin' It with Love. He released an earlier album, in 1975, with Mums/CBS.
As a young Christian, he created a close bond with Christian singer/songwriter Larry Norman, who gave him advice concerning his own singing and songwriting. In addition, he met the late Keith Green, who encouraged him to make a stronger commitment to Jesus and at the same time his own ministry. Camp is now the senior pastor of The Cross Church in Palm City, Florida. ChristianMusicWeekly was unable to get additional information before deadline.
NEEDTOBREATHE has announced their new album, H A R D L O V E will release July 15. The lead single, Happiness, will hit radio on Friday. “The song 'Happiness' is really about the sacrifices we have to make in order to change,” lead singer Bear Rinehart said. “I think that everyone who has had to make a major decision in their life knows that change is only worth it when you make the change for the right reason. Happiness after all is clearly a fleeting thing, but purpose is what brings real joy. I believe that there’s no better place in the world than the middle of the will of God for your life. I hope that the song ‘Happiness’ makes you feel that way."
Urban Rescue will release Wild Heart, the group's first full album with Rend Family Records, May 6. Fans got a glimpse of what to expect from the project with Urban Rescue's 5-track Wild Heart EP, which released in January.
