“The ‘Local’ within Local Sound speaks to the roots of who we are and why we do what we do,” says Runion. “We fully back God's dream of the local church and we believe that God, the original culture creator, has designed the local church as ‘Plan A’ – to immerse the world in His culture. We were never intended to be the products of temporary culture. We were made to be distributors of an eternal one.”
“The ‘Sound’ portion of our name is a reflection of our heart and our passion to unite the Word of God with high energy, innovative music that reaches the world,” he adds. “We believe we have been called to spread the Gospel through relevant and inspiring message-driven songs that express the joy found in a life fully devoted to Christ and the realization of the deep love that the Shepherd has for us.”
Previously, Local Sound independently released an EP and an extended single featuring the songs "Wild", "More Than Air" and "Shepherd". Integrity releases new single “Nobody” September 21 with additional singles and a full-length album planned for the future.
“We are so excited to welcome Local Sound to the Integrity family,” says Andrew Osenga, Director of A&R for Integrity. “They have a unique gift for placing a rich creativity and thoughtfulness inside fun and approachable pop music. It’s thrilling to see the way they are leading their generation in worship, both inside and outside the walls of the Church, and we are honored to walk alongside them in this step of their journey.”
