Dallas Lockett releases premier LP “Higher Then Mountains”

Dallas Lockett has released his newest official long-playing record, “Higher Then Mountains,” to much-deserved acclaim.

Dallas Lockett has released his newest official long-playing record, “Higher Then Mountains,” to much-deserved acclaim.  Dallas Duane Lockett is a gospel singer and songwriter of the absolute highest caliber.  His rich, practiced vocal tone is as full and sonorous as Otis Redding, his cadence and groove measured and precise, his style classy, earnest, and brimming with the holy spirit of his God.


That Lockett’s singing is full of class and groove shouldn’t be surprising; he lists as artistic influences nobody but greats: Sam Cooke, Johnny Taylor, Bobby Womack.  That his inspiration for making music comes from his Heavenly Father should also shock no-one, as, having heard the call of his Lord, he has been touring on an evangelical basis since the age of just 16, having learned the art of stage performance at the church of his youth.  With songs penned by the talented writer, Jerone Howard, as well as by Dallas Lockett, himself, he has touched the hearts, souls, and lives of hundreds since growing up in Akron, Ohio.


Dallas’ skills as a songwriter leave nothing to be wanted, either.  In 2006, one of his own compositions caught the eye of gospel music legend Shirley Caesar, with whom he subsequently performed the piece live before congregations and audiences to great, resounding applause.  Though his musical talents obviously outstrip those of most would-be musical performers, Lockett’s priority and first love is in Christ Jesus, his God and Savior.


To the question of what message he intends to convey through this album, “Higher Then Mountains,” Dallas Lockett writes, “To spread the word of life to those who are searching for truth in this world that is sometimes confusing, and to bring to them a much-needed hope.”  If the listener is a fan of truly excellent gospel music that lifts the spirit and glorifies God on High, then at least he or she need not hope any longer for that; Lockett’s “Higher Then Mountains” is exceptionally fine worship music.
