What You Need To Know:
Titus Showers made a name for himself with his six sisters via the group The Showers. They garnered Stellar Awards, charted on the Billboards Gospel Chart and made several appearances. Titus also participates in ways to help people concerning health and medicine via a partnership with MAP International. Embarking on his own, Titus released Who? EP.
What It Sounds Like:
In the words of Bobby Jones “This is good Gospel music.” Houston residents Lucious Hoskins (four songs) and Tyrone Belle (two songs) handle the majority of the production while Darryl Walls (of the Walls Group) serves as a vocal producer. “It’s Gonna Be Alright” has a slow melodic groove to it with Titus doing his good ad-libbing. The songs of encouragement continue with “In That Name” serving to encourage and call the listeners to encourage themselves in the Lord. This song even got a NotKarlton Banks (Instagram sensation) skit. His nephew, Tasmin and daughter, Tytiana, join him towards the end of “Make It” proving again how important family is to Titus. It also shows that singing will continue to run deep into this family.
Serving as encouragement is a great thing in the midst of the “noise” of today. The hope of Christ is done in an enjoyable fashion.
Best Song on the Record:
Titus closes the EP strongly and in such contrast. “Amen” is a straight-up old school, wooden floor church song topped with only the piano and such foot-stomping. Titus is sangin’ the way that our church mothers and lovers of traditional Gospel music will love. “Love” is more of an inspirational/Contemporary Gospel song. Keyondra Lockett adds some flair and texture vocally as she and Titus complement each other well. Calling for love for others in 2019 is fitting.
For Fans Of:
Lowell Pye, The Showers, Jabari Johnson
Titus Showers is quite the singer who is true to Gospel music while still incorporating a few different styles within the whole EP. Who is worth the attention.
