Record Label: None
Anthony Conn: This was a pandemic project for me. I've always wanted to record my own music, but didn't realize how doable it was in this current era of home recording. I decided to take the plunge and give it a shot. A couple of name changes later and I settled on GENTILES, a reference to how through Jesus God made salvation accessible to everyone, even non-Jews.
Anthony: This theme is just specific to this album. I'm happy to say I have less controversial lyrical content moving forward. The themes are taken from two major influences. The last couple of years I've been disheartened by some of my fellow Christians' actions, on both personal and national levels, so there's some of that in there. These songs are also a letter to my younger self, in a time when I was judgmental of others and narrow minded. It was sort of therapeutic to hash out some feelings this way, though it does make for some tough listening. I decided to pair the content with the idea of the golden calf and how we, like the Israelites, often focus on the wrong things.
Anthony: Demon Hunter, Red and Dead Poetic are probably reflected most with this release. I also really enjoy Everything in Slow Motion/Hands and Comrades.
Anthony: I see this being just a studio project. I play bass at my church but I don't imagine taking this on the road.
Anthony: I self-produced this one, with some mixing advice from a friend of mine. I'm looking to learn more on the production end for my future projects.
Anthony: I think the lyrics in "Hearts of Men" are what I'm striving to hit home. That God loves us, even as we mistreat each other and fall short. If we loved each other like He loves us, we wouldn't be fighting over all these temporary things. His salvation is so much bigger than the boxes we put Him in.
Anthony: I have a full-length album of new songs written and recorded that I hope to release this upcoming year. It deals with the Garden of Eden, sin, and self-denial. I'm hoping to put out some singles this spring. I also have an EP about the disciples that I am stoked about, and hoping to put out some time in 2024, Lord willing.
Anthony: You can find my links here: https://linktr.ee/gentilesmusic My music is on streaming services and I am also active on Youtube and Bandcamp.
Anthony: Thank you to anyone who gives my music any of their time. Thank you to JFH for the opportunity!
