Mary Mary, The Sound

October 23, 2008

MOBILE, Alabama (October 23, 2008) – It sounds like a success for Mary Mary’s new CD The Sound which has opened to terrific reviews from both Christian and mainstream press. The Integrity/Columbia release is also in the Top 10 on iTunes album sales.

People Magazine was the first to laud the new release with a 3 ½ star review, saying: “Their praise-worthy new CD finds this sisterly duo continuing to expand the sonic horizons of contemporary gospel with songs like “Get Up,” the “Off the Wall”-inspired first single, which has cracked both the R&B and dance charts.”

Christianity Today’s online music site also gave the disc a first-class review: “The Sound finds the Campbell’s (Mary Mary sisters Tina and Erica) continuing to set the bar ridiculously high…. The Sound is the most progressive urban disc to come out of Christian and gospel music in 2008, and possibly even mainstream music….The Sound is an undisputed triumph….The Sound amplifies their potential for reaching beyond stylistic boundaries, deepening the creative well from which they draw, and setting a new standard of excellence in urban and gospel music.”

Adding their praise, said, “Wonderful singers and perhaps even better songwriters, they, along with the unofficial third member of the group, Warryn Campbell (Erica's husband), have performed a marvelous balancing act, acknowledging the developments of modern music while keeping consistent themes of praise and self-surrender in their music…So what's surprising about their newest disc, The Sound, is how Mary Mary can sound so new -- and maybe even better -- five records into their career.”

With able assistance from longtime producer and collaborator Warryn Campbell, Erica Campbell and Tina Campbell, the real life sisters better known as Mary Mary, weave their love of truth-grounded Gospel music into a tuneful blend of R&B, pop, soul, jazz, electronic music and more. (Erica's husband, Warryn Campbell also helmed the first two Mary Mary albums, the RIAA gold- and platinum-certified Thankful and the RIAA gold-certified Incredible.)

The Sound premieres 11 new Mary Mary songs including the album’s recently released lead single, “Get Up,” a pop-infused anthem of praise and empowerment, which is starting to get strong airplay at CHR radio. Other tracks on The Sound include the R&B-flavored title track “The Sound,” “Superfriend,” “God In Me,” “Boom,” “I'm Running,” “Forgiven Me,” “Dirt,” “Seattle,” “I Worship You” and “It Will All Be Worth It.”
