The Washington Projects Announce New Album
Set To Release May 22, 2012 on Save The City Records;
Jekob Washington To Release Solo Project This Fall, Garners First Top 20 Radio Single With “Love Is All”

The Washington Projects, comprised of brother/sister duo Jekob and Rachael Washington, is set to release their new studio remix album Space, Time, Continuum on May 22, 2012. Releasing on Save The City Records/Provident Distribution, the project was produced by Flatline Remix (Lecrae, Trip Lee, Newsboys).

Formerly two-thirds of the trio SoulJahz, The Washington Projects musical style of insightful hip-hop, R&B, old school funk and pure soul pop is heard to the core on Space, Time, Continuum, which are eleven remixed songs chosen from their previous two album releases, Commanders of the Resistance and Light Up The Dark. The full CD of Light Up The Dark, which was never released in physical retail stores, will be included with Space, Time, Continuum as a special bonus disc.

“The Washington Projects is one of the most innovative sounds in Christian music today,” exclaims Derek Hoiem, Owner and CEO of Save The City Records. “Many people think that Christian music is a knock off of what’s happening in secular music but The Washington Projects deliver something that is totally original that could compete on any secular music chart. What’s different, however, is their positive, gospel-based message. The rise of the popularity of Christian hip-hop has shown that people are hungry for positive alternatives to what’s happening in the mainstream music marketplace, and The Washington Projects are here with an alternative that avid music listeners will love.”
In addition to the upcoming album release of Space, Time, Continuum, Jekob Washington will release his first solo project with Save The City Records in late 2012. His first radio single, “Love Is All,” is currently climbing up Billboard’s Christian CHR chart and is currently at No. 18, making this Save The City Records’ first Top 20 radio single.
Jekob and Rachael Washington earned a No. 1 Christian CHR single and two songs on the Xbox game “Project Gotham City.” Remerging as The Washington Projects in 2007, the brother/sister duo released their debut album Commanders of the Resistance October 9th, 2007 and Light Up The Dark released July of 2009. In addition to receiving two Dove Awards, the duo has toured with such notable acts as No Doubt, Kirk Franklin, Ashanti, Ja Rule, Jars of Clay, TobyMac, and Erykah Badu (to name a few). The Washington Projects landed at No. 1 on Gospel Music Channel for two weeks for their “Take It To The Streets” video and No. 2 for three weeks for the “You Are My World” video. Jekob wrote and produced the multi-platinum single “Imma Be Alright” by Nappy Roots. When she was 17, Rachael became the youngest composer/producer/songwriter in the history of Warner Brothers Records, beating out Prince at 19.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
