OBB LOOKS ON THE "BRIGHT SIDE" WITH FULL-LENGTH DEBUT by Turning Point Media on 2014-09-25 09:44:23
Nashville, Tenn. — Bright Side, the highly anticipated full-length debut from Dove Award-nominated Curb recording artist OBB, is set to bow September 30. Produced by Justin Ebach, the project features 12 selections co-written by the Atlanta-based pop band.
Bright Side is highlighted by the group's latest single, “That Kind Of Faith,” encapsulating OBB’s ultimate desire to encourage and motivate listeners. “Jesus talks a lot about faith, and our faith makes us whole,” the band’s Nich Oswald says. “It's our faith in Jesus that determines how we live. Peter walked on water because of faith. I want to do the impossible. I want that kind of faith.”
The project also addresses themes of pursuit (“Up Close And Personal”); praise (“Who Cares If We’re Dancing”); forgiveness (“Gone”); and gratitude (“All Eyes On You,” “Your Love Is An Ocean”), topics inspired by the band’s noted loyal fan base.
“The album is primarily about grace and forgiveness,” OBB’s Zach Oswald says. “The title track speaks of choosing to not only look at life on the bright side, but to choose to live life on the Bright Side.”
“I feel God has really given me a hunger for more of Him, to tell everyone I can about His love and grace,” band member Jacob Oswald says. “I’m learning to say through song what God has called me to say.”
OBB is currently performing selections from Bright Side as co-headliners of the “While We’re Young” Tour, also featuring 1 Girl Nation. The fall outing is hitting such markets as Jacksonville, Florida; Jamestown, New York; Marietta, Georgia; and Hagerstown, Maryland, among other cities.
Comprised of brothers Zach (lead vocals/keys/guitar), Jacob (lead guitar) and Nich Oswald (drums), OBB rocketed into the spotlight last year with a GMA Dove Award nomination and a slot on NewSong's juggernaut Winter Jam Tour Spectacular, opening for some of the biggest acts in Christian music. Signed by Curb Records in 2012 after gaining national notoriety on CBS Early Show’s “Singing Family Face-Off,” OBB’s acclaimed self-titled EP released last year.
Bright Side will be available September 30 from Curb Records/Word Distribution.
