No Other Name "The Other Side" by Kevin Thorson (cmaddict.com) on 2011-10-27 16:17:05
No Other Name released their new album "The Other Side" on October 25, a new group nominated for New Artist of the Year before they even released an album. The group is made up of Sam Allen, his sister Laura, and their friend Chad Smith.
From the beginning you can see why they were nominated for New Artist. Their strong vocals compliment each other perfectly. It's obvious that the goal of the trio is the message and singing the gospel without watering it down.
Writer and producer Bernie Herms (Natalie Grant and Casting Crowns), Jason Kyle, and Blake Bollinger all worked on the album gathering music for the album. Title track "The Other Side" has a great beginning that builds with melodic guitars, easily my favorite track on the album.
"The Other Side" is a very powerful release for a group with loads of potential. No Other Name stands out for it's amazing vocals and unwavering message. "Our favorite group verse is Acts 4:12 'Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved'" says singer Chad Smith.
