A New Contemporary gospel group
Eclectic (deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad diverse range of sources)
The truth is,
eclectic is easier said than accomplished.
However, in the curious case of the contemporary gospel group Jonah’s Run; the term eclectic is the first word that comes to mind. JR Members Sharrod Ford, TA-ki Morant, and Michael Mines are the three strands that when combined form a singular unforgettable sound.
-The mixture of Sharrod’s soulful raspy R&B influenced baritone,
-The soulful resonance of Ta-Ki’s delivery
-and Michaels vocals that hearken back to the Winans era, with a hint of traditional quartet combine for a tasty musical gumbo!
“Prodigal Me” is an emotional call to repentance that tugs on the heart without condemning, While “USASVEDME” is a guitar driven light rock anthem that proclaims the gospel. “Save my Generation” is an unplugged, folk style story of a lost generation, told over a single repeating Guitar riff.
As you stir the Musical gumbo that is Jonas run, you will also find the Reggae-styled “John 10” ripped almost verbatim from scripture to your liking.
There is a fine line between eclectic and chaotic, and these storytellers seem to know just where the line is and how not to cross it.
While each song is genres and perhaps worlds apart. The Jonah’s Run Project remains Gumbo never becoming potluck.
Formed in winter 2016 For what was supposed to be a one-time event, the music ministry of Jonah’s Run Has been running strong ever since with no end in sight.
