TBGB Pick of the Week: May 26, 2014

The Showers
A&P Records (2014)

Nothing like being pushed to the edge of the fire, metaphorically speaking, to produce a good gospel song. 

“I’m tired of my life / I’m tired of the pain / I’m tired of my past / the guilt and the shame,” the Showers sing on “Better,” their second single, written and produced by Deon Kipping. To an appealing but intense arrangement, the Showers pray for the ability to change their lives for good.

The ten sibling singers from Louisiana plan to release their national debut album this summer.
