LOS ANGELES (January 14, 2013) – Grammy ®, Dove and BMI Award-winner, Percy Bady releases Kingdom Inspirations Early Edition EP on February 5, 2013. The EP marks his first solo project in partnership with Maranatha! Gospel, and it will be available at digital retailers including iTunes.
“My initial thought was make music that would be encouraging and inspiring to people,” Bady says of his debut disc for Maranatha! Music, where he serves a dual role as both artist and executive spearheading A&R for the Gospel division as the director of Maranatha! Gospel. “I had a lot of things that happened during the making of the EP and the full length CD which comes out later in the year.”
Kingdom Inspirations Early Edition EP includes the Gospel radio single “I Won’t Give Up,” featuring Canton Jones. The single speaks about strength and resilience during difficult times. Other songs on the EP include “Painful But Necessary,” which captures a snapshot of challenges Bady faced during the writing process for the album, “Still,” and “Don’t Stop Praising Him.”
“There are certain songs that wouldn’t even have been birthed without the experiences that I had,” explained Bady. “All of it kind of contributed to where I was mentally, spiritually, emotionally and financially. I needed to have that connection directly to those experiences for those songs to be birthed.”
In Nashville during Stellar Awards week, Bady performs during the Urban Soul Café Access Granted Midnight Praise Party at the Cannery Ballroom on January 17 and co-hosts the Friday Night Live event at B.B. Kings on January 18. In February, Bady will be a guest speaker at the Gospel Heritage Conference in Atlanta.
Bady is booked by Jodi Mainello at Live Oak Entertainment. Cathy Carroll at Mighty Dominion Entertainment handles radio promotions for Bady.
