The crew behind Role Model Records is looking forward to an exciting second half of 2012 as its set to release Glass House on September 18th 2012. The album will feature Role Model Records recording artists Spoken, Julien, and Boogie as well as DJ Lagit. Glass House is the label’s first group project and will feature production from Beatz Johnson, Boogie and Marv4Mo Beats. Features include: S.O. (Lamp Mode Recordings) and Promise (Duck Down Records) to name a few. The album will be released under Role Model Records/Syntax Distribution.
The concept of Glass House is two-fold. First, all humans are glass houses. We are all fragile, in constant need of cleaning, and we are all transparent. Even when we try to cover our weaknesses and insecurities, we still lay bare and naked before an awesome God. The project explores this fragility deeply rooted in the human existence. Second, the artists are very transparent in the songs. Spoken, Julien and Boogie are not content to simply wade in deep and controversial waters. They boldly dive in, speaking on profound heart issues. In doing so, they unashamedly present their strengths, weaknesses, successes, failures, and most importantly, their God; their God, who is great enough to use them despite their weaknesses. They take and provide comfort in the Gospel, knowing that as glass houses, Christians contain His light (i.e. the Holy Spirit) causing them to shine beautifully, despite their many smudges. Songs like; Ain’t Worth It, Everyday People, and Black Rose, to name a few, vividly illustrate this reality. Sonically, Glass House is best described simply as good music. The instrumentation, song concepts, and songwriting have the potential to be both timely and timeless. The project also has sprinkles of a mainstream sound, thus expanding its potential reach.
Glass House is an emotionally heavy album that contrasts the stark realities of human fragility against God’s unchanging love, grace, compassion and judgement. For this reason ultimately, Glass House is a transparent project designed to reach both the believer and non-believer alike. We don’t just aim to be successful but significant.
