Product notities

A spiritual awakening transformed Carl 'Guitar' Watkins (born: Carl Raynard Watkins) from a worldly lifestyle to a career as a gifted gospel performer, musician, producer, singer, songwriter and minister. Carl's interest in music goes back to an early age. Brought up in a North Galilee Missionary Baptist Church in St Louis, Mo, he absorbed the music of traditional Gospel Music. As a small child, while others merely listened to music, he was also intrigued by writers and producers such as, Gamble and Huff, Holland and Dozier of Motown and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. In addition he focused on every note. During high school he learned a number of instruments including drums, guitar and saxophone. At the young age of merely 14 years old he formed the R and B band 'EMC'. He describes himself first and foremost as a songwriter. Having written literally hundreds of songs, he began to play the guitar first in the blues arena. He later joined a local R and B group where he met and teamed up with Dr. Seth Brownridge, a local producer, songwriter and band manager, and Marvin F. Cockrell, a local Jazz Artist and producer. Together the team formed several R and B groups which culminated in the recording of their first CD 'Enjoy' performed by the group Style. This 4 song CD was inspirational R and B music. Two of these songs were written, arranged and produced by none other than Carl 'Guitar' Watkins. Both songs presented to the world a message of prayer, marriage, love and trust. Despite the involvement in worldly music, Carl 'Guitar' Watkins never forgot his Gospel Roots. In 2004, Carl's interest shifted to Gospel music. He and Seth Brownridge formed a new gospel label 'Jirah Records'. With the help of very talented people this label spawned a number of local artists careers. Carl's first Gospel album, 'Provider' was released in 2009. This album was a compilation effort with several local Gospel artists. The album was also responsible for the Debut of other artists including Wydana, Randall Richardson, Naomi Willoughby and Sherry Wayne . In addition he co-wrote music for Cecelia B. Jones, a local poet. His smooth tracks are featured on her spoken word CD 'The Circle of Life' which was also released in 2009. In addition he has written and played for Marvin F. Cockrell and William Ranier and other artists on several CD's. In 2006 while visiting Abundant Life Fellowship Church he heard a word from the Lord calling him to join the church and the music ministry' . 'I knew these words were from God and I obeyed. I have not regretted the choice. Working in the music ministry at Abundant Life Fellowship Church is a blessing and has allowed me to advance my skills in the Gospel Arena.' Following God's path for his life he now has begun touring locally and regionally performing both songs from the 'Provider' CD as well as new creations which are now featured on his debut solo CD 'War'. On this album Carl 'Guitar' Watkins displays a variety of his talents including his singing, writing and production abilities. In addition, a number of tracks feature a gospel jazz feel as he praises the Lord with his Guitar. The music of these tracks literally speaks the good news to the soul. And there is more to come as God continues to shine His light through this humble vessel of praise.
