5 August 2022 – Nashville, TN – Nashville-based band Local Sound introduce their debut album ‘This Is My Local’. After many prolific years of singles and EP releases, Local Sound explore new horizons with their first full length record, one that unveils more of their heart for Christ-centred communities.
Born from a house church movement in the Tennessee capital, Local Sound seek to create culture through highly energetic and innovative music that reaches society. ‘This Is My Local’ captures the essence of what the Lord is doing among this group of people, as one of the band’s members, Alexis Butcher, shares: “This album is full of prayers, stories, and the personality of different church members, as well as struggles we’ve walked through together in the last few years.” The personal and contextual stories that brought Local Sound’s new album to life don’t make it irrelevant, but wholly relatable.
The ten tracks on ‘This Is My Local’ are full of truth delivered on fresh melodies that ride the spectrum of emotions. From more mellow tracks like‘Through The Night’ and‘On Christ’ making space for vulnerability, to lively songs like the album opener ‘To The King’, Local Sound bring an array of worship flavors from their various backgrounds making the album a “little piece of us for Jesus,” as Alexis notes. ‘This Is My Local’ boldly and creatively encapsulates the band’s vision for Church –be it in homes or more traditional settings – to lift a beautiful aroma of praise to the heavens and ignite renewed faith in the Lord. With their debut album, Local Sound are eager to share what they have learned about worship and loving Jesus.
Local Sound is a Nashville-based band and movement born from MyLocal, a growing community of house churches spread across multiple states and countries that is hyper-focused on developing leaders who plant churches right in their own neighborhoods. The sextet is made of Jared Runion, Alexis Butcher, Drew Harrison, Emily Wyant, Danny Lopez and Garrett Tyler, infusing a wealth of diversity and musical influences into their sound. Local Sound’s music is the embodiment of their daily involvement in Church, breaking down misconceptions and reservations one song at a time with bold optimism and wild imagination as they build up one another in love. Their sound reflects a heart and passion to unite the word of God with high energy and innovative music that reaches the world. Beyond a band they seek to be culture creators reflecting God’s abundant creativity and distributing the Kingdom’s culture wherever they go. After five EPs and multiple singles, they are introducing their debut album, ‘This Is My Local’, in August 2022. Local Sound are fuelled by a call to spread the gospel through relevant and inspiring message-driven songs that express the joy and child-like wonder found in a life fully devoted to Christ and the realization of His deep love.
