Learning To Be The Light

Overview

Living in a media saturated world where sensationalism is the norm, most of us respond to hype with great cynicism. When Newworldson burst on to the scene in 2007, they might as well have ridden into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey. The rhetoric surrounding the band at their coming out party in Nashville for Gospel Music Week bordered on messianic. This was the group with a fresh new sound that was going to revitalize the business. Their label president [Dale Bray, Inpop Records] pitched his new signing in a most unapologetic way saying, “If you don’t get it, you don’t get it!” Word quickly got around about those four Canadians that scored a standing ovation from the world’s toughest audience: the music industry.

Determined to live up to their reputation as the must-see-live band of the day, the four members of Newworldson come together with all the force of an orchestra. The infectiously kinetic rhythm section of Mark Rogers (drums) and Rich Moore (bass/vocals) crossbreeds contemporary grooves with old-school timbres like Moore’s upright playing and Rogers’ weathered Slingerland bass drum circa 1930’s. The message is delivered by the tandem vocals of frontman/keyboardist Joel Parisien and singer/guitarist Josh Toal, mixing Spirit-filled lyrics with an atmosphere of sheer exuberance.

Author Information

A Canadian gospel quartet, Newworldson were formed in the waning years of the first decade of the 21st century, and within a short time found themselves winning awards and playing with some of the genre's titans. Taking musical cues from such luminaries as Jamie Cullum, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, and Spencer Davis, Newworldson released their first album in 2007. Entitled Roots Revolution, the album and the band's unique sound earned the band awards (Best New Artist and Roots/Folk Album of the Year at the Gospel Music Awards in Canada) and — more importantly — an opening slot of Christian music giants Newsboys on that group's 2007-2008 tour. Further good news for singer Joel Parisien, guitarist Josh Toal, bassist Rich Moore, and drummer Mark Rogers came in 2008, as the band was nominated for a 2008 Juno for Best Christian/Gospel Album of the Year.
