Deon Kipping
I Just Want To Hear You

Deon Kipping has delivered some of the most celebrated songs of the last decade in Gospel music; he penned the smash hit "Praise Him In Advance" featured on Marvin Sapp's Thirsty project, and is a featured vocalist on and the writer of the JJ Hairston & Youthful Praise hit "Incredible God". He continues to lend his writing prowess to a myriad of musical projects, from the legendary Rance Allen Group to newcomers such as Jessica Reedy.

His national debut, I Just Want To Hear You, on Verity Records, introduces the world to Kipping as a vocalist, musician, producer and arranger. It's a 15-track project packed with with powerful lyrics, progressive sounds, and precise blends, offering a new sound in today's Gospel. Kipping's group of singers (New Covenant) ably supports.

With instrumentation reminiscent of pop, and sequences giving a nod to contemporary Christian sounds and traditional Gospel, the project speaks to the progression of the CDGospel sound. This shift is best heard on songs such as the opening track "Heal Again", "Prisoner", and "So Addicted".

The praise and worship subgenre is represented with cuts that include the title track, "Destiny Is Waiting, and "I Don't Look Like (What I've Been Through)".

The lyrical content and vocal arrangements are outstanding on this project, with a nice crafted compositional flow being the hallmark of the songwriting. Kipping takes risks by stepping into vocal styling and arrangements that span across various musical genres, adding a different flavor to the project and pushing the musical envelope in a different vein. Instead of merely urban sounds, we see Kipping fusing praise and worship compositions with rock, alternative, and pop. And while it's a welcomed change of pace, the musical experimentation never overshadow s the impact of the lyrical content.

Kipping displays his vocal adroitness throughout. Songs such as "You Are The King" and "Let Your Power Fall", are eminently accessible and will be welcomed additions to the repertoire of musicians and singers across the land.

Call I Just Want To Hear You a great introduction to Deon Kipping as solo artist, vocalist, and musician.
