Award-winning family band, The Springmans, have announced the September 23, 2022, release of "Marvelous," the second single from their exciting new project, Upside Down, from Sony Orchard. "Marvelous" will be available on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, and Tidal.
"We're so excited to release "Marvelous" as a single so more people can hear it through digital platforms," says The Springmans' band leader (aka Dad), Perry Springman.
A shimmering, pop-inspired soundscape, “Marvelous” kicks off the album, which exudes a Partridge Family vibe with a mission and sets the stage for The Springmans' latest EP, Upside Down. The new project features the band's home-grown, organic brand of feel-good pop and praise music, which is woven together with quality musicianship and production at every turn. Produced by and co-written with multi-Grammy and Dove Award winner Mark Heimermann (dcTalk, Michael W. Smith, Newsboys), both the new single and the project are worthy follow-ups to The Springmans' award-winning debut album, Happy Beach.
As industry insiders know, winning awards such as the Parents Choice Award and the GMA Canada Covenant Award, as The Springmans did with Happy Beach, is a very unusual accomplishment for any artist, but especially for an indie band.
"It's extremely rare to find a family that can sing, play, and travel together in this day and age, but it is so needed!" says Heimermann. "It's always fun working on The Springmans' records...this record is filled with such sweetness!"
Their sophomore release, Upside Down, captures the vibe and charm of the first project and takes it up a notch. More than a collection of songs or a family jam session, however, Upside Down is a serious declaration of devotion made by young believers and their spiritually grounded father.
With a passion for sharing the life-changing truth of the gospel with the world, Perry and the kids begin and end every song in scripture, weaving eternal messages of hope, mercy, grace, and joy into each verse and chorus on Upside Down, and turning conventional thinking about what contemporary praise and worship music could and should be on its head.
Not content to settle inside the four walls of the church, The Springmans play at family-oriented festivals, fairs, parades, events, churches, and schools worldwide, both mainstream and faith-based, with audience counts into the 20,000s. Their music has a multi-generational appeal, bringing children and adults together with worship music that connects and inspires everyone from age two to 92.
"In a Christian worship culture that tends to create music that separates the church body into age categories, we believe we are all to worship Him united, together," says Perry Springman. "Our album, Upside Down, is our call to worship as the family of Christ-with songs that will draw adults and kids together in worship of the One who calls us His children. If you choose to love and follow Jesus, then you can expect the world to view you as, well, upside down-different, strange, and peculiar. But we believe that living a life without the One who created us, knows us, and loves us is what is truly upside down!”
A confluence of catchy pop beats, endearing, accessible lyrics, and an indelible spirit of fun, track-by-track, Upside Down is an audio storybook of a multi-talented, multi-generational family of worshippers, seekers, and a legacy of salvation set to song. It's different, it's fun, and as promised, it's an upside down ride that takes you straight to the feet of God, just the way Jesus wants.
