Jonathan McReynolds Releasing Live Album 'Make Room'

Mar 06 2018

Jonathan McReynolds releases his first live album 'Make Room' on 9th March 2018. The album features songs like 'Cycles' and 'Lover Of My soul', plus his first Billboard #1 single 'Not Lucky, I'm Loved' which is accompanied by a music video, shown below.


What was born in his dorm room in the presence of a few friends has graduated to Christian music’s biggest stage picking up fans like Stevie Wonder, Lalah Hathaway, Kirk Franklin, Cece Winans, Nicky Minaj and Tori Kelly along the way. And Jonathan, now 27, did it with an incredible voice and a beautifully honest approach to songwriting.

His latest full-length album 'Life Music: Stage Two' featured another superstar fan in India.Arie and remained #1 on the Billboard Gospel chart for 4 weeks. It then went on to grab a Grammy nomination, multiple Stellar nominations and a Dove Award win. He brought on yet another popular talent, Tweet, on his latest EP “Sessions.” This unannounced, surprise release reached the top of the iTunes Christian chart in one night.

According to the Chicago native, Life Music is everything he’s truly about. "My albums are about being authentic and genuine, pure and transparent. That’s who I try to be as a person,” he says. “I’m direct, I’m blunt. I’m not a fan of church clichés and 'Christian-ese'. Life Music is concerned with showing others and reminding myself how the Faith doesn’t just fit every part of life, but should frame every part of life."

In May 2015, Jonathan attained his Masters of Arts in Biblical Studies from Moody Theological Seminary. His contribution to society outside of music is important to him as well. With that, he is an adjunct instructor at his alma mater Columbia College, an official contributor to Huffington Post and the founder of Elihu Nation, a nonprofit organization that promotes wisdom and recently awarded $9k in scholarships.

His appeal stretches across generational, cultural, and musical lines. It is shown in the buzzworthy performances that have marked his last four years including BET Celebration of Gospel with India.Arie, Essence Fest (2014, 2015), 106 & Park, Stellar Awards (2014, 2015), Joyful Noise, Revolt TV Live, and the Dove Awards. In addition to headlining monster shows as far as Oslo, London, and Port-of-Spain, Jonathan has toured with India Arie and Lalah Hathaway.
