Isaac Carree Announces New Album, New Label Home

After taking a six-year pause from his solo recording career, gifted singer and songwriter Isaac Carree is back with his highly anticipated recording, No Risk… No Reward, set for release this Fall on Shanachie Entertainment.

Carree launched his career as a soloist with John P. Kee & New Life Community Choir and later on with his own award-winning Gospel quartet, Men of Standard. His soulful velvety tenor, heavenly runs, smooth production and ability infuse various genres into his irresistible sound, have allowed him to collaborate with everyone from Kirk Franklin and Mary Mary to Donnie McClurkin, Marvin Sapp and Israel Houghton, among others.

The Atlanta native launched his solo career in 2011 with the release titled Uncommon Me, which featured the #1 hit single “In The Middle”. He would follow this effort with his 2013 effort titled Reset, which featured his second #1 hit titled “Clean This House”. The transcendent messages of his hits demonstrates the power of God’s redemption and affirms his mission to inspire us to persevere and remember that it is never too late to start over.

So what has Carree been doing in the last six years? As the title of his upcoming release indicates, Carree has been taking several calculated risks over the last few years.

“I’m intentional about everything I do. Sometimes I do things even if I am afraid, but I do it! WHY NOT?!,” shares Carree. “Allowing myself this time afforded me the opportunity to shift the trajectory of my mind and to reset to prepare for this moment now! I had the life changing experience of touring with Diddy and the Bad Boy Reunion Tour. I also toured with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill on the Soul II Soul World Tour and had the time of my life. After being away from the industry and not having new music out for six years, it feels really good to be back and to partner with Shanachie who believes in my vision.”

Carree also penned his first book Service: My Words. My Life. My Truth and launched his own music conference, The Plug, in Atlanta.

This Fall, Shanachie Entertainment will release Isaac Carree’s anticipated label debut, No Risk No Reward.

“One listen to the quality of Isaac’s voice and stellar production let’s you know that he is special. We are proud to bring his new music to gospel fans eager for a contemporary iteration of the gospel message,” states Randall Grass, General Manager of Shanachie Entertainment.

No Risk…No Reward features the album’s first single “HER.” This stunning ballad is a powerful anthem from men to their woman. It is Carree’s tribute to his wife Dietra. “I love my wife,” says Carree. “She deserves NOTHING but the best! We’ve grown together, we’ve had our ups and our downs but she stuck with me by my side. She’s loyal, she’s a prayer warrior, she’s the mother of our child, so this song embodies how GRATEFUL to God I am for HER!”

No Risk…No Reward is Carree’s third solo recording and is produced by Dove Award-winner and two-time Grammy Award-winning producer Blac Elvis, who has produced hits for everyone from Beyoncé (“Ego”) to Fergie (“Glamorous”), Ciara (“Promise”), Usher (“Lil’ Freak) and Smokie Norful (“Nothing Is Impossible”).

“Working with an artist like Isaac Carree is a breath of fresh air! I don’t simply wanna label him a gospel artist because he’s so much more,” states Elvis. “His artistry is expressed in so many different ways and will appeal to so many different audiences. From the music we’re creating, to the show experience we’re producing, I want people to take away, that this is an experience of a lifetime. Something to remember!”

“Anyone who has followed my solo career knows that I like to take musical risks and push the envelope,” states Carree. “This album is no different. Joining forces with producers Blac Elvis and Red Kulture has been inspiring! I wanted a different energy, a different sound, and a different vibration to this music. And we accomplished that! So stay tuned… I’m BACK!”

Look for No Risk…No Reward, the upcoming release from Isaac Carree, to hit stores this fall on Shanachie Entertainment.
