Byron Cage

Byron Cage , the Prince of Praise and Worship, brings his fifth solo release, Memoirs of a Worshipper. The live recording (at Christ Universal Temple in Chicago), brings a mix of styles, from the traditional to the contemporary and a healthy number of ballads and praise material. Read on as GOSPELflava.com sat down to speak with the artist.

GOSPELflava.com: Tell us why you deemed "Memoirs Of A Worshipper" to be a fitting title for your new project?

Byron Cage Byron Cage: Faithful To Believe [the previous album] was speaking to the times that we were living in. Many were struggling and in need of encouragement. I believe that I am in a different place personally and professionally and this project reflects that. We are all human at the end of the day, and I wanted to present songs that reflect my life. Songs like "You", and "Gratitude" are heart songs on this project.

GOSPELflava.com: You and producer Aaron Lindsey always deliver some of the most notable praise & worship songs that we've heard over the past 10 years. What would you define as the formula for your musical success when you partner up on projects?

Byron Cage: I have to say that I believe that Aaron Lindsey will go down in history as one of the greatest musicians and producers in Gospel music. Aaron and I have a true brotherhood and we fast and believe God for timeless music. Our commitment to God and great music that will resonate with the varied seasons of life, are what make our bond special.
