Salient Sound have released their highly anticipated debut single ‘Stand’; a gospel anthem to encourage and inspire listeners with a message of hope.

The song is available to purchase and stream on all online platforms including; Apple iTunes, Amazon Music, Spotify and Tidal.

’Stand’, written by Jermaine ‘JC’ Henry and Lydia Sterling, members of Salient Sound, the New Testament Church of God’s (NTCG) National Youth Worship Team, is written in response to a challenging 2020 and now fairs even more relevant, as we begin a turbulent start to 2021. This is a song for the season.

‘Inspired’, ‘uplifted’, ‘peace’, ‘timely’, ‘the UK British sound’ are just some of the words that have been used by listeners to describe this amazing body of work produced by Iziah Yarde.

Like many, Salient Sound felt they needed to say something that spoke to the injustice, adversity and suffering happening across the globe. ’Without you we’re broken, Oh Jesus we need You’, is the melodic prayer that rings throughout the song, making a petition for those in need. ‘Stand’ also features a poignant prayer by Bishop Dr. Eric A Brown, Senior Pastor and District Overseer of NTCG Brixton.

Contributors include: Lead vocals; Jermaine ‘JC’ Henry and Lydia Sterling, Producer/Keyboards; Iziah “Izzy” Yarde, Drums; Daniel Powell, Bass; Levi Yarde, Guitar; Mathias Lunde, Hammond Organ; David Davis, Strings; Enoch John, Recording Engineers; Iziah “Izzy” Yarde/Femi Bello, Mix Engineer; Femi Bello, Mastering Engineer; Kearon “Da BoSS” Stephen.
