One of the UK’s finest and most consistent gospel artists, John Fisher is soon to present his latest release alongside his gospel soul choir IDMC. Their 9th album “Hideaway Live” features songs such as ‘Only You’ Life Your Head Up, ‘More Than Conquerors’ and the Hawkins classic ‘Dear Jesus’.
IDMC started in 1994 as a mass choir from the New Testament Church of God, recording their first project on the 25th February. At that time IDMC was an 80 piece mass choir and had an awesome traditional sound but since then to now, the choir has gone through many transitions, from the name, size of the choir to its sound.
After two sold-out shows at the award-winning Hideaway music venue in 2017, IDMC releases this project recorded over the two nights which once again captures the pure energy of one of Europe’s finest gospel choirs. With songs from IDMC’s soulful catalogue along with gospel classics and new inspirational standards, IDMC delivers a master class of how to present gospel music in a secular venue.
Joined by some of the UK’s talented fresh musicians who have been mentored by John (and are now ‘A-List’ musicians playing for artists such as Stormzy, Plan B, and Ray Blak to name a few), you have the combination of the Nu Skool mixed with John’s old Skool soulful groove.
“Hideaway Live” will be fully released at John Fisher & IDMC Gospel Soul Choir’s 24th Anniversary Celebration at the origin of IDMC – NTCG Brixton Community Church on Saturday 24th February 2018 at 7:00pm.
