The Eagle Rock Gospel Singers, one of our favorite groups from the outstanding SoCal Americana scene, has been diligently working on their forthcoming record, No Glory. Today, we present to you the album’s lead single, “Lay Down Low.”
“‘Lay Down Low’ has been a staple of our live set for a year or so but it wasn’t until we worked with Los Angeles vocal arranger, Baraka May Williams, who fine tuned the harmonies and dynamics, that the song really came to life,” says guitarist Jeremy Horton. “The song started with a simple little melody for the verses. I wrote what I thought could be a concise telling of the story of Jesus using that melody as a springboard,” adds drummer Will Wadsworth. “The overall idea was to sing something that I could imagine people singing in rural areas of the American south sometime around the turn of the 20th century.”
Without further ado, Mother Church Pew proudly presents the video for “Lay Down Low” by The Eagle Rock Gospel Singers:
