The new Acappella album was such a joy to record. As I listen to the finished product, the return to some old-school sounds brought many delightful "flash backs." There are times throughout the album when you can almost hear a singer from years ago. In fact, the similarities are often eerie.
Having written most of the music, it is not surprising to find ties back to previous albums. However, I made a strong attempt to seek variety from song to song so that everything doesn't sound alike. The versatility of the voices in Acappella make for a very fresh project. These guys are so talented and are fast learners! I am proud of my son, Anthony and his writing debut for Acappella on this CD. Melissa did an outstanding job with the engineering of this project. Kim provides a wonderful treat with some very unique photography for the CD.
With Heaven & Earth, we explored new territory with an R&B influence. With RADIANCE, we are staying with strong Scripture themes but going back to a more recognizable Acappella style. We are excited about RADIANCE, and I really hope you enjoy it as well. Please pray that this project will point people to the ONE who is the "exact representation of His being."
Hebrews 1:3 "The son is the radiance of God's glory."

Powersource Magazine says about Radiance, "This CD is probably the best project in any genre I have heard in years. Acappella is one of the most original sounding groups, moving like water and fire through world music, be-bop, traditional spirituals, and jazz like there were no lines or boundaries. These guys can SANG! ... Producer, founder, and former lead singer of the group, Keith Lancaster has brought together five GREAT, amazing, mystifying, outrageously good vocal musicians for an anointed collection of songs. The lyrics hold true and fast to Scripture and are a powerful ministry! I was moved to tears on the first song in about ten seconds. I believe for a jaded radio vet like me, that was a record! This isnít just wonderful music, itís inspiring God-calling music."
