Thank you for spending time with us. Please introduce yourself to our readers and tell us where you’re from?
My name is Mr. Church and I reside in Jacksonville, FL by way of Montgomery, AL.

Tell us the origin behind your name.
My name stems from my connection to ministry. I feel as though the church is catching a bad rap in the times we live in, and in some cases rightfully so. But not whole-fully so because there are some people like myself that truly have a heart for God and people and we want to get something to people and not out of people. With that being said I decide to re-brand this year and I changed my name from Rod Tha god to Mr. Church because I was inspired to represent the church in the right light. C.h.u.r.c.h stands for Change, humility, unity, righteousness, character, hope.

What made you decide music was your passion?
Music is a universal language but it is also the soundtrack to our lives. I acknowledge the impact that a song can have on our lives so as a minister I use music as a tool to reach people. The more I see my music help people in life the more passionate I become about it!!!

How would you describe your style of music?
My music is the Good News of Jesus Christ!!! It is Hope infused!!! I am a praiser with like a crunk, down south, Atlanta sound so my music if hype and it gets the people out their seats and their feet moving!!!

Tell us about the single you are currently pushing and where it’s available.
The single is titled “This My Year”. Its a declaration that 2020 is the year that my life turns around for the better. No matter how much adversity I face I am going to do the work to see a change in my life and this should be the declaration for everybody that’s tired of living a lass than life!!! Available on ALL digital platforms!

What else can we catch you doing besides Music?
I have my own ministry called ” Circle Of Life International Community”. It is a open dialogue ministry that is designed to heighten that people level of understand through open dialogue conversations about the bible. My prayer is that as people’s level of understanding rises then their application of the principals in the bible will become consistent, as a result, people will start to live a more victorious life!!!

What’s next for you?
Production of movies

Where can we keep up with you online?

TySoul and Maine the Medicine announce the release of their collaborative project titled ‘Medicine for the Soul.’ The 14-track album features Popko, Sweetness, Daniel Rosler, Suspect, Lambo Lo, Paulie, and GTS.  Check out our latest interview detailing the album along with visuals for the leading single “Serenity.”

MJ: You hit fans with something different and innovative with this new album “Medicine for the Soul”. You curated a captivating blend of R&B and Hip Hop. Talk about the album and the mindset behind creating it.

Stream/download “Medicine for the Soul” here on preferred platforms

TySoul: Both Maine and myself already collaborated on multiple records before this album, and everything we made together came out great. So, we thought, why not make a full project together, and we did just that. Myself being a Chris Brown fan, I wanted to add a new school R&B flare to the album, while having Maine add his old-school influences along with his amazing lyricism.

Maine: being from New York, Hip-Hop and R&B go hand and hand. Like Nas and Lauryn, Meth and Mary, Father MC with Jodeci, and the list goes on and on. We just wanted to bring that feeling back.

MJ: You enlisted an elite selection of producers for the album, with an incredible ability to orchestrate soundscapes that heighten the raw emotion and impeccable lyricism. Talk about that, as well as how you two linked up.

TySoul: We originally linked up nearly a decade ago from a mutual contact, we never collaborated at the time, but we did a few shows together. Years later Maine called me to come into JL Studios to do a hook for Mercy Gang and after that, it was a wrap…

Maine: We worked with a handful of producers including Know- it beats and Da Leadgeon who helped us blend that Hip Hop and R&B with today’s twist. Plus, we both get busy with the pen!

MJ:  Was the goal of the album to expand your fan base by stepping out of the box? Was it to display your versatility as artists and your agility to steer in different lanes?

TySoul: I think both of us somewhat stepped out of our comfort zones for the better. I was able to experiment with a more commercial sound rather than the old-school R&B type influences that were prevalent in my first album “Two-Sided.” I feel that we both displayed our versatility but also stayed true to our artistry.

Maine: I feel as an MC I should be able to adapt to any genre while still being me.

MJ:  What single off the album do you anticipate taking off both on charts and with listeners/fans?

TySoul: I think that “Addicted” or “Don’t You” are two of our more heartfelt records. Both talk about relationship-based content but also have an upbeat flow and awesome production.

Maine: “Serenity” is going to make a statement because it deals with some crucial issues going on in the world now. “Addicted”, “Old Thing Back”, and “Move Ya Body” are extraordinarily strong records as well.

MJ: Take a minute to reflect and share anything else about “The Medicine for the Soul”

TySoul: This project personally helped me to experiment with rapping more. Maine pushed and encouraged me to spit a few bars, and I was able to rap a few good verses on this album. Even through this pandemic, we stayed motivated and in touch, which enabled us to finish this project strong and in time when we were able to return to the studio.

Maine: We want people and our fans to get that great feeling listening to our music. We’re just trying to put authentic Hip Hop and R&B back on the map.

Special thanks to Dan Rosler, Amanda Rogan, Lambo Lo, Suspect, Gus, and Paulie…#RIPHefty
