Christian singer Philia Dens releases debut single ‘Give Me Hope’

The singer of contemporary Christian music known as Philia Dens has released her debut single, “Give Me Hope.” The track has been widely distributed to over 700 digital music stores online around the world. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the direction of the corporate music industry. Soulful and inspirational, beautiful and heartfelt, “Give Me Hope” is a sign that Philia Dens is a Christian musician the world should hear.

Asked to cite some main artistic influences, Philia Dens lists Whitney Houston, Kirk Franklin, Lara George, and Charlotte Dipanda. Her own sound takes the elegance of Houston and stirs into it the songwriting talent of Franklin and George. Dens’ singing also has endearing, upbeat overtones similar to the exotic warmth which has made Dipanda an international favorite.

But while beauty is certainly present in “Give Me Hope” by Philia Dens, it is the message of her music that remains the focal point of her efforts. According to Dens, herself, this message is one of “Grace to forgive” and the “hope to live again.” She writes directly to her listeners and fans, saying, “Regardless of your past sins, you have a chance to live again by the blood of Jesus.”

Born of royal blood in Bamenda, Cameroon on the west coast of Central Africa, Philia Dens has been singing since the age of four. Her mother would take her to hospitals to sing to newborn babies. At 14, she began writing music, original songs which were incorporated as hymns in churches and schools. Following high school, Dens moved to the USA to follow her musical passion. She has opened for mainstream acts such as Petit Pays and performs regularly at churches, weddings, graduations, and more. She is renowned for her humanist principles in music.

“Before I write a song, I think of its impact on the population and how they will relate to it,” Philia Dens writes. “My style is a fusion of gospel, inspirational, and soul. I sing to touch souls and impact people positively.”

“Give Me Hope” by Philia Dens is available online worldwide.

Clifton Poyotte releases new gospel LP ‘Blue Skies’

The singer and songwriter of gospel music known as Clifton Poyotte has released his latest LP record album, “Blue Skies.” The LP is composed of 14 new tracks for an approximate total listening time of one full hour. It has been proudly published as an independent release entirely without the support of the corporate music power structure. Upbeat, powerful, and full of the might of the holy spirit, “Blue Skies” by Clifton Poyotte is the latest evidence that the lasting strength of contemporary Christian music is still rooted in the Biblical tradition, itself.

Born and raised on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, singer Clifton Poyotte cites as main artistic influences Donnie McClurkin, Alvin Slaughter, and Smokie Norful. While Poyotte has clearly been performing music for decades and has reached an expert level of skill, “Blue Skies” remains his most widely distributed official record to date and may be considered a debut LP on that score alone.

Clifton Poyotte’s “Blue Skies” album is a mix of songs from a wide variety of music styles, including (but not limited to) the adult contemporary, classic gospel, R ‘n’ B, pop, and even reggae genres, many of which are blended together on the LP for a new sound that is strictly Poyotte’s own. His natural singing voice is reminiscent of the best male gospel performers, a mix of raw, unadulterated talent and polished skill which has obviously taken shape over many performances.

The sheer quality of the record, not to be overlooked, is neither to be considered the album’s chief charm nor its primary aim, however. While the music of “Blue Skies” is clearly majestic and moving, its lyrics point to more celestial sources for their inspiration and remind the listener time and again that the music is intended as much to please heavenly ears as it is to uplift and encourage the earthbound.

Asked to comment on the theme of his record, Poyotte replies that “It does not matter how low you sink, the grace of God can lift you out to your highest potential. The sky is your limit.”

A heartfelt work of worship, praise, and personal devotion, “Blue Skies” is an album music lovers of all faiths can understand and appreciate.

“Blue Skies” by Clifton Poyotte is available online worldwide.
