Brandon Camphor & OneWay Debut New Song, “His Name”
One of the most exciting young vocal bands on today’s musical landscape is Brandon Camphor & OneWay, a dynamic East Coast group that stylistically dances along the divide separating Christian pop and urban gospel music to create its own unique hybrid that’s garnering fans and followers from every corner of the globe. Over the last three years, the exhilarating ensemble has earned Top 30 status with the inspiring songs “I Choose You” and “You Are God.” Now, they are back on the grind with a rousing new inspirational track “His Name” that is sure to light up the radio airwaves for years to come. In the past couple of weeks alone, the song was tied Top 3 Most Added Song, resulting in it being #50 on the charts presently.
Camphor’s music career began just a decade ago when the D.C. native released a five-song EP titled To The One while in college. Soon after, he established OneWay, a vocal group that brings together a fusion of urban and pop flavored music that celebrates their Christian faith. “Our mission is to be an example of righteous living to this generation,” says Camphor.
OneWay’s debut CD Regeneration hit in the fall of 2009. With shades of rock and funk, the inspiring songs of faith and worship included fan favorites “It’s Possible (Gotta Have Faith)” and “Bless the Lord”, which was later re-introduced by Myron Butler’s recording of the Camphor penned tune. The closing song “One Way” explained the group’s name and mission. “One way to live the life,” they sing. “Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah! I’m gonna live for Christ. He’s the way, the truth, the light.”
In 2007, Camphor ignited The Encounter, a late night alternative to clubbing in the Washington, D.C. area, where young adults of all cultures convened for a festive night of fellowship and Bible-based ministry. The Encounter has since impacted thousands of young adults throughout the area and provided a platform to introduce OneWay to young audiences up and down the East coast. After performing at Christian festivals and winning The Most Powerful Voices Competition presented by Music World Gospel and The Gospel Music Channel in 2011, they sang on the nationally televised Power Awards and were featured on the Most Powerful Voices Compilation Vol. 1 album that boasted Kim Burrell and Trin-i-tee 5:7, among others.
In 2012, Camphor created the Jesus Rock: Live It Loud college tour, where he and OneWay toured with artists such as Tye Tribbett and Kierra Sheard. He then moved to New York City, and joined the Brooklyn Tabernacle Church where he has since become a soloist on the legendary Grammy Award nominated church choir’s latest CD’s “Love Lead The Way” And “Pray”. He’s now gearing up for the 2016 release of OneWay’s sophomore album, “Hope Is Alive”, and aims to expand the boundaries of gospel music while also demonstrating that OneWay is on to a new way to introduce faith music and principles to a new generation that not only wants it, but needs it.
