Hide ya kids, hide ya wives I’m interviewing another R&B artist…. Just putting it out there early. But I think you’ll appreciate the talk I had with Avery*Sunshine who although is classified as an R&B/Soul artist has church roots, is still there and I believe loves God and Jesus Christ just as much as any of us. I’m serious, many times the saints know the saints and I’ll endeavor to say she’s one of us!! Well, her debut project has some gospel and inspirational tracks that I think have just as much oil on them as anybody else’s. Trust me. I’ve posted them both below the interview for you to go in on once you’re done watching us talk about music, God and everything in between. Enjoy! Read the rest of this entry »

Recently I sat down with Vashawn Mitchell to talk about his recent success with his new CD “Triumphant” and his HUGE hit “Nobody Greater” amongst a bunch of other things. (The church boy in me is officially taking over… I used “amongst.” Please forgive me, lol) Vashawn’s one of those artists that if I don’t pay attention we’ll be talking forever and ever amen… Seriously we had a good time, some laughs and some serious moments too. Watch and tell me what you think, I quicken about 3 times in there (blame the church boy) and even reveal some things about myself and my personal evolution as it relates to “worship” etc. Oh just watch it, it’s good!

Sup folks! Recently I sat with the co-hosts of Verizon’s “How Sweet the Sound” choir competition Donald Lawrence and Cece Winans. We talked about how the show has grown, the importance of choirs, the differences between choirs in different cities (Donald broke down the difference between NYC and Chicago vibrato!) and a lot more. Watch! Read the rest of this entry »

Sup folks! (I need another greeting but it just comes so natural to me, maybe I’ll have a contest to pick a new one. Ha!)
Recently I got to sit down with Fred Hammond and one of his new artists Michael Bethany about his new Fred Hammond Family Entertainment label. We talked about his goals for the label as well as the other directions he’s taking as a businessman and artist. Jazz CD? Yep. Book? Yep. We even get into a little bit about I don’t want to go too far into our conversation because I think the dialogue is really good. But for you sensitive saints, this isn’t the interview for you! Ha. No, seriously. Enjoy!

Not too long ago I got to sit down with Forever Jones, a family band that’s kind of taking gospel and contemporary christian music by storm with their song “He Wants It All.” If you haven’t heard it, you probably just don’t listen to the radio AT ALL, ha! Well, what a lot of people didn’t know or are just now realizing is that the artist isn’t just the girl Dominique who leads it, but is an entire family band that plays and writes all of their own material.
Watch as we talked about how “He Wants It All” was written, what’s it’s like to be a family group and more. There’s also a rather amazing acoustic performance their hit song that’s got some serious oil on it! Once the mother comes in with that bottom note, it WILL get you together! Enjoy!

Tomorrow Juanita Bynum releases her first CD from her new label and management deal with Matthew Knowles‘ Music World Gospel. While she was promoting her new EP, “The Diary Of Juanita Bynum: Soul Cry (Oh, Oh, Oh); we sat for a little bit to catch up on a few things. The interview was pretty fun, I must say. We talked about her name changes, her music, the extent of her relationship with Matthew Knowles, her infamous Bynum beans, and a bunch of other stuff.
Keep in mind, when we had this interview I still hadn’t heard any of the music, including the single “Soul Cry (Oh, Oh, Oh) so we couldn’t really into the specifics of the music but it’s interesting nonetheless (churchy word alert.) Watch, enjoy and tell me what you think. And pay close attention, there are a lot of fun moments in there. Read the rest of this entry »

This week I finally got the chance to sit down with Kirk Franklin, an artist who is arguably one of the biggest and most influential gospel artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. There are only a few artists who’s names automatically equal gospel music to ANYONE you mention them too. Kirk Franklin definitely falls somewhere on the top of that list, so to finally have him come to and stop by “The Gospel According To Torrence” was a huge deal for me.

Sup folks. I’m knocking these interviews out. I let me and all my 50 million jobs get in the way of editing these, but I’m doing better!
In this video I sat down with Urban Gospel Star Canton Jones to discuss his latest project “Kingdom Business, Volume 2″ along dealing with “church folks” and reaching young people inside and OUTSIDE of the church. We also had a bit of a moment discussing everyone’s position in the “body” of Christ… (Are you a toe-nail?) You gotta watch to get it! Ha! Read the rest of this entry »

A while ago I sat down with one of my favorite newer artists (by “newer,” I mean having come out in the last few years), Wess Morgan. Read the rest of this entry »

Sup folks, I’m really excited to finally bring you this interview that’s been a long time coming.
Now, it’s no secret that typically I’m not a huge fan of “Holy Hip Hop,” Gospel Rap, Christian Rap, etc. (It’s called so many things by different people and I wanted to get it right.) Now when I say “not a fan” that is not to mean I don’t like it, that’s a little different. Generally, it’s just not my thing because typically I find that generally it doesn’t grab me in the same way that some mainstream hip-hop that I like would (ok, a little corny). And even then, I’m not a fan of much of that either. You have to REALLY SLAY for me to like it.
BUT, this group is so different. If you’ve never heard of them, I want to introduce you to Still Trill Christians. Read the rest of this entry »
