New Fervent Records band Sidewalk Prophets will make their CBA industry debut on Aug. 25 with the release of These Simple Truths.
Already touring more than 150 dates per year, the band has shared the stage with acts like MercyMe, Michael W. Smith, Jeremy Camp, Audio Adrenaline and others before signing with the Nashville label. Sidewalk Prophets initially made a name for themselves at Indiana’s Anderson University where frontmen and main songwriters Dave Frey and Ben McDonald met. The band was unwittingly submitted for a campus recording competition, won and later attracted the attention of music executives before relocating to Music City. Members Cal Joslin and Justin Nace joined the band upon Sidewalk Prophet’s arrival to Nashville.
Produced by Ian Eskelin (Stellar Kart, Francesca Battistelli, Sarah Reeves), These Simple Truths centers on the hope that Christ’s love provides. Like most of the band’s recordings, their ministry focus is to help people embrace the uniqueness God has given them.
“The more we look at today’s problems the more we see that a lot of times people are fearful of being themselves,” explains Frey. “And finding our identity in Christ is one of the most crucial steps in loving others. Once people start realizing this and living confidently we’ll see a visible change from households to communities to ultimately the world.
“That’s what we’re all about. The name ‘Sidewalk Prophets’ even means that we are common people speaking the truth about life from our perspective as followers of Christ.”
Sidewalk Prophets’ first album single, “The Words I Would Say,” is scheduled for release to radio June 19.
