Stellar Award-Nominated Label RichEscape Music Readies New CD, Everlasting, With Renowned Inspirational Jazz Saxophonist Phil French

RichEscape Music’s Own Terrence Richburg Featured On New Project Scheduled To Release On January 27, 2015

(Washington, DC) – December 17, 2014 – Saxophonist Phil French has played with the cream of the crop. His resume reads like a who’s who of the music industry. He’s performed with artists and musicians such as The Winans, The Clark Sisters, Fred Hammond, Richard Smallwood, Kim Burrell, Yolanda Adams, Ben Tankard, Stanley Turrentine, Grover Washington, Jr., Norman Connors, Ramsey Lewis, Najee and a slew of others. A producer, songwriter, arranger, recording artist and engineer as well, French has ministered his anointed artistry nationwide for years now. Recently partnering with popular producer, composer, instrumentalist and Gospel Jazz artist Terrence Richburg and his Stellar Award-Nominated record label, RichEscape Music, Phil French is putting the finishing touches on his upcoming CD, Everlasting…Featuring Terrence Richburg. The CD will be available on January 27, 2015.

Phil French is thrilled about the new musical offering and the chance to work with his mentor. He says, “More than any other CD I’ve done, I loved the process of recording this album. I am so used to doing the producing, the recording, the engineering and everything else. With Terrence at the helm of production, it allowed me the opportunity to be the artist. What we’ve created, I think, is awesome. In my opinion, every single song is a strong one.”

Easily flowing musically from the sacredness of a Sunday morning church service to the jazzy atmosphere of a Blues Alley, Phil French has the uncanny ability to touch a variety of audiences. Everlasting…Featuring Terrence Richburg is perfect for the Gospel music lover and the smooth jazz lover. The upcoming CD is a spirited collection of largely inspirational instrumental music, created to uplift the heart and soothe the soul. On Everlasting, all songs were penned and arranged by Richburg who steps into the role of instrumentalist and background vocalist in addition to producer. Songs like the soulful and melodic “In My Heart” and the captivating and groove-laden “Wave Offering” take the listener on a sonic and enjoyable journey. Other superb cuts include the syncopated “Twilight” and the unforgettable “Consider Now Eternity”. Although most songs are strictly instrumental, Richburg and his wife Kathy’s impressive vocals, are sprinkled throughout the dynamic project.

Long-time friends, Richburg and French felt a musical collaboration was a natural one. Richburg says, “Working with Phil is always a blessing because of his magnetic personality. I’m so incredibly happy that after all the writing, arranging, and recording…and the hard work, long days and nights, and sacrifice to make this happen, the real joy is in knowing that it wasn’t Phil or me at all. It was always the strength and power of Jesus working through us and His calling of music ministry breathed into both of our lives long ago for His glory.”

Terrence Richburg started RichEscape Music in 1994 with the goal of giving artists a platform to express themselves musically and vocally and most importantly, spiritually. In 2007, the label celebrated its first Stellar Award Nomination for the CD, Awesome, by Worship Leader Terrell Hunt. The project netted a nomination for New Artist of the Year for the artist and label. In addition, Richburg and his musical partner Howard Riley, Jr. released their Gospel Jazz debut, Ascension, to critical acclaim. Richburg is readying a number of other projects scheduled to drop in 2015.

Phil French started playing at the age of 10 at Thomas Stone Elementary School in Mt. Rainier, MD. As his passion for the instrument grew, he honed his skills in church at Shiloh Church of God Seventh-Day in Hyattsville, MD. His exquisite saxophone skills are exhibited on two award-winning projects, Yolanda Adams’ More Than A Melody and William Becton & Friends’ Broken. French is a member of the prominent mega-church, The Potter’s House, where Bishop T.D. Jakes is the pastor. He’s ministered at countless conferences and events including Woman Thou Art Loosed, Manpower, The Pastors & Leadership Conference and the Gospel Music Workshop of America. Phil French – Everlasting…Featuring Terrence Richburg is French’s 7th CD–a rather profound number which encourages both he and Richburg to “complete” even greater works in the future and thereby inspire the very lives of people everywhere through their music.
