13 May 2022 – Nashville, TN – ‘To The King’ came together as an expression of the heart of Local Sound’s home church movement, MyLocal. Sitting together in each other’s houses week by week, studying scripture and sharing life together, sparked inspiration to write worshipful responses to God’s faithfulness from everyone’s stories. Local Sound’s music is saturated with the nearness of their community, instilling a sense of belonging into the family of God through each song. ‘To The King’ features intimate prayers that have had the time to be nurtured into songs over the turbulence of the last two years. Each song on ‘To The King’ – from the funk-infused title track to the slower-paced song ‘On Christ’ – has a different feeling and a unique response as a representation of the countless ways that Local Sound see God at work in their lives as a band and as a church. The new project from the Nashville-based collective is a call to go beyond listening and to participate in the act of worship. Local Sound’s hope is to bring listeners closer to Jesus through these tunes.
Local Sound is a movement born from within the Nashville-based house church movement, MyLocal. Beyond a band, Local Sound are culture creators, using art and community to build God’s Kingdom in today’s society. The “local” within Local Sound speaks to the roots of who they are, fully backing God’s dream of “the local Church” and believing that God – the original culture Creator – has designed the local Church to immerse the world in His eternal culture. The “sound” is a reflection of their heart to unite the word of God with highly energetic and innovative music that reaches society. Passionate by a call to spread the gospel through relevant and inspiring message-driven tunes, Local Sound express the joy found in a life fully devoted to Christ and the realization of His deep love song by song.
