Bright City release new single ‘Hope Lives’ in run up to Easter

Bright City return this week with the release of their new Easter single ‘Hope Lives’ following hot on the heels of their instrumental project Still, Vol. 2 (Integrity Music).

2017 saw the release of Bright City’s second studio album Hello Maker, including the song ‘Rock Of Our Salvation’ which has already surpassed 2 million streams on Spotify- the most successful song to date from the family of artists.

Now the Brighton (UK) based collective have penned a new anthem of hope, restoration and victory for the church to sing this Easter 2018.

Hope Lives’ is the soundtrack to this year’s Easter campaign at St Peter’s Church in Brighton, home of Bright City. Explaining the concept, Henry Milne (Bright City Visual Arts Leader and songwriter of ‘Hope Lives’) said:

“Over the next couple of weeks, hundreds of people will be coming through the doors of St Peter’s for our Easter services, hearing a message of hope in Jesus.

“This year, alongside a series of campaign visuals, we wanted to write a song that carried the story of Jesus’ cross, resurrection, reign and return, to our city and beyond. No matter what situations people find themselves in, hope lives in Jesus’ name.”

Death defeated. Hope Lives.


Inspirational Cover from Philippa Hanna

A couple of weeks ago I recorded a cover of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’ after rewriting the words with an Gospel/Easter twist. I love rewriting things in this way but never usually share them for fear of being a bit twee, or not doing justice to the original.

This idea however wouldn’t go away so I thought I’d share it as part of my ‘Inspiration 365’  YouTube blog. In the past couple of days, it’s been picked up and shared by a few social media channels and yesterday alone the video has had over 1,000,000 views and was shared 40,000 times! I’m blown away and humbled!

New Member Joins The Guardians

StowTown Records recording artists, THE GUARDIANS, have announced a transition from a trio to a quartet as occasional guest bass vocalist Pat Barker has joined the group on a permanent basis. “Pat’s bass voice is unsurpassed in this industry,” states The Guardians’ Dean Hickman. “When he’s made guest appearances with this group in recent years, he always brought such excitement, energy, and true professionalism to the stage. Not only is he a remarkable bass singer, Pat also has a sincere heart for ministry and proclaiming the Gospel. Pat represents the quality and goodness the future of Gospel music holds.

“I am so honoured to be an ‘official’ member of The Guardians,” says Pat Barker. “I have known and loved these guys for many years, and, likewise, I’ve followed their musical career during that time. I’ve been blessed to have the occasional opportunity to sing with them in many concerts and church services, so I’ve learned first-hand that the fellows in this group are truly remarkable men who love God. I’m very thankful to be joining their ministry on a full-time basis.”

The Guardians’ transition from trio to quartet is effective immediately. To learn more about The Guardians, including the group’s tour schedule, visit
