Nashville, TN (September 19, 2013) ---- One of the most beloved and respected musicians/singers in the music industry, Gordon Mote, has released his latest project All Things New. The album was co-produced by Frank Rogers (Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker), and Dove-Award winning producers, Wayne Haun and Russell Mauldin. The project features vocal collaborations with such major artists as the Gaither Vocal Band, Trace Adkins, Darius Rucker, Josh Turner, Matthew West, and Scotty McCreery. This is the second album by Mote for his new label, New Haven Records, and the project will be distributed to the faith-based market through Provident-Integrity Distribution.

"I wanted this project to encourage others to let the Lord use the rough parts of their lives for His glory just like He has in mine," says Mote. "Being born blind, God has given me so many blessings in spite of the setbacks I have had in my life. If we'll give God the chance to make All Things New, He will."

The powerful ballad, "Faith Like That," is the first single being serviced to Christian radio, and the heartfelt lyrics were co-written by award-winning songwriters Don Sampson ("Waitin' On A Woman") and Jim Brown ("Five O'Clock Somewhere"). A noted songwriter himself, Mote co-wrote four songs on the new album including, "All Things New," "Sound A Dream Makes," "For You," and the autobiographical "Broken Open." The latter song describes Mote's personal journey of clinging to his faith to overcome a broken heart and how God can lift us up even during our darkest hours.

"I had a wonderful childhood, but grew somewhat lonely as a teenager as my friends were getting driver's licenses and leaving me behind," explains Mote. "Whether you're blind or not, all of us experience insecurities. I learned that my brokenness made me more open to God's love as well as more sensitive to the brokenness in other's lives."

In spite of what society calls a handicap, Mote has miraculously overcome multiple obstacles with his blindness that include; playing piano at 3-years-old without any professional training, being the first blind student in the country to be accepted into the public school system, graduating high school with honors, receiving a full scholarship to Jacksonville State University in Jacksonville, AL, and graduating from Belmont University in Nashville, TN with Cum Laude honors and a music degree.

Two days after graduation, Mote began touring with Country artist Lee Greenwood's band, which led to the talented musician touring and recording with such major superstars as Trisha Yearwood, Brad Paisley, Bob Seger, Alan Jackson, Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood, Gaither Vocal Band, and Lionel Richie.

Mote's keyboard skills led him to being honored twice by the Academy of Country Music for Piano/Keyboard Player of the Year Awards, as well as two Music Row Magazine Instrumentalist of the Year Awards for playing on the most Top Ten albums. Mote has released nine albums as an independent artist, with If You Could Hear What I See earning Mote his first Dove nomination in 2004. Mote remains an active touring act by performing over 150 dates a year.
