New Album Due June 2017
Harare, Zimbabwe – October 7, 2016 – Kudzie G Phiri is not only a prophetic psalmist but a talented gospel artist out of Africa who is delivering a new single, “Heaven Hears and Whispers of Love” with her band, The New WInd. After that they plan on taking on even more when they drop their album, Dominion, in late spring come next year.
Born with a gift, Kudzie found her way in life at an early age. She made her way to the ministry and never looked back. It was there she really found her voice and as an adolescent formed various groups here and there, then as a teen became a part of her church’s choir. For almost a decade she sang backup on the Praise team at New Life Covenant Church Harare, Zimbabwe under Bishop Tudor Bismark, and used that as an opportunity to do background vocals for the like of Donnie McClurkin, Marvin Winans, Bishop Joseph Garlington, Hiram Koopman and many other artists. In 2011 Kudzi began to work with Jazz vocalist Prudence Katomeni Mbofana. All this resulted in Kudzie’s curiosity for fusing genres, her love for Jazz, gospel and blues then created the sound of Kudzie G Phiri.
Performing locally in Zimbabwe, Kudzie G Phiri and The New Wind have played everywhere from church events to concerts elsewhere. Because of that they’ve gained local notoriety in H-Metro, Daily News and online at Zimbo Jam. They’ve even been featured on blackgospel.com. Not only due to their live performances, but their ear catching sound. A fusion of blues, jazz and gospel with her own native influence – Kudzie G Phiri and The New Wind bring something new to the table, and it’s a safe bet everyone is digging into their dish first. Through and through though, whether it be with their latest single “Heaven Hears and Whispers of Love” or their upcoming 2017 release, one thing’s for sure – their message of Christ and their desire to be an uplifting voice to listeners.
“Heaven Hears and Whispers of Love” is available now, and fans can expect Dominion in late spring, 2017. For more information on Kudzie G. Phiri, check her out online.
