Hendersonville, TN - Karen Peck and New River has signed a multi-year recording and publishing agreement with Daywind Records, continuing a relationship between the two that has resulted in many wonderful achievements.
The most recent collaboration "Revival," is perhaps the group's best recording to date. The songwriting was amped up with the addition of Michael Farren, Kenna Turner West, Jason Cox, Sue Smith, and more. Most exciting is that Karen Peck herself co-wrote songs on the album, including the first single, "Revival." The Wayne Haun production features wonderful songs about the love and grace of Christ in New River's award-winning southern and country style. Karen Peck, accompanied by Michael Farren and Kenna Turner West, performed another song from the recording, "Finish Well," to a standing ovation at the recent BMI Songwriter's Showcase at the Gospel Music Association's Immerse event.
"We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Karen, Susan, and Jeff. They are about ministry and are spilling over with talent. God continues to bless their steps and find ways to use them for His glory. We are excited about the future," said Ed Leonard, president of Daywind Records.
Karen Peck added, "we are very honored to be a part of the Daywind family. We are excited about what The Lord has in store for our future together!"
Karen Peck and New River have been blessed with numerous awards and nominations. The group won two Dove Awards in 2012 and has several Singing News Fan Awards to their credit. Recent years have seen multiple albums nominated for Grammy Awards, many appearances on the Gaither Homecoming tour, and a feature film role for Karen ("Joyful Noise").
