SEATTLE, WA...April 7, 2009...As an artist that has already been pegged as one to watch in 2009, Phillip LaRue joyfully releases his BEC Recordings solo debut today, "Let the Road Pave Itself." On the heels of the release, Gospel Music Channel has jumped on board naming Phillip LaRue as their next "Listen Up" artist for April/May.

GMC's "Listen Up" is Gospel Music Channel's new multiplatform promotional campaign featuring new emerging Gospel/Christian recording artists who are on the verge of becoming break-out stars. Beginning next Monday, April 13th, GMC will showcase Phillip throughout the channel and online with video assets and exclusive interview footage for viewers to learn more about this budding artist.

In addition, AOL Music is hosting a "Listening Party" with the full CD in streaming this week. Also recently featuring the full album in stream was Relevant Magazine on their weekly "The Drop" online. Other street week coverage include video interview footage on and a street week podcast on

Not being new to the industry or the Nashville music scene, Phillip has filled the role of producer (Tenth Avenue North) and songwriter (Brandon Heath, Tenth Avenue North, Krystal Meyers,) since his duo LaRue (with his sister Natalie) called it quits in 2003.

An organic set of songs for the digital age produced by Paul Moak, "Let the Road Pave Itself" was tracked live in the studio to an old fashioned two-inch tape reel, warmly capturing the sound of Phillip and his friends playing real time rock that's concerned with life's deepest matters of love and faith. Recorded in this manner, Phillip kept many of the first takes without fixing to keep the album as natural as possible.

One such example is the debut radio single and opening track, "Chasing the Daylight," a stirring mid-tempo rocker that has seen dark times but still declares I want to chase the daylight like it's the last day of my life. At radio, this single has moved into New and Active at CHR as well as Air 1 adding the song last week.
