After the release of his debut album “Life Music” in 2012 featuring the hit songs “No Gray” and “I Love You” while a college student, Jonathan McReynolds music has become an epitome of everything that contemporary gospel music should be; inspiring, well written, beautifully arranged and based on the word of God.
His songs showcase his excellent craftsmanship and deep knowledge of music; qualities rarely seen in today’s gospel music landscape. The quality and impact of his music shows us what happens when the power of God comes into contact with talent and knowledge.
In his sophomore album, Life Music: Stage Two, the 2015 Dove Awards nominee for Gospel Artiste of the Year has more than cemented this image of gospel music perfection; he has crafted a unique sound and created in our hearts a huge desire for gospel music that does not only cause our heads to nod but speaks to our hearts and inspires us to a closer walk with God.
Featuring songs like “Gotta Have You,” “Pressure” and “Christ Representers,” Life Music: Stage Two has a tailor-made message for anyone wherever you are in your walk with God. The quality of the writing on this album elicited this remark on Twitter from the legendary Kirk Franklin “I think @jonmcreynolds is the freshest songwriter I’ve heard in years.. God’s music is in great hands.”
Despite the massive airplay and the huge success that he is enjoying, Jonathan still remains humble and says he is “still aiming to be transparent and genuine.”
The sophomore album features collaborations with other music greats such as four-time Grammy Award winner India Arie on the song “Whole,” the evergreen Israel Houghton on “All Things Well” and the soulful Chantae Cann on the song “Maintain.” Life Music: Stage Two, released on September 18th 2015, is available on iTunes and Amazon.
