New Haven, CT — Connecticut based BKS Music Group, founded by former NFL Pittsburgh Steelers player Ulish Booker, III announced today the first release for the newly formed label. Hubert “Doobie” Powell, III is set to release his first national release “The Time Is Now” on January 13, 2009. Doobie Powell is a musician, singer, songwriter and producer drawing inspiration for his music from an artistic family lineage and from an amazing journey through life. “The Time Is Now” is a story board of stages that God has brought the noted drummer through.
The Time Is Now illustrates the ability and growth of his commitment to Christ. In his earlier years, Doobie Powell was centered on his own talent. Now, his relationship with God is the center. This project is growth in Him (Christ) which has stimulated growth in Powell’s music. Doobie reflects that he was totally in another place when he did the first CD’s. From the death of this first wife to having his home burglarized and recording studio completely wiped out, he grieved, coped, survived and achieved. His life has changed drastically since his first project and now he has much to say.
This is actually Doobie Powell’s fifth CD but his first national release. Although Doobie has a tremendous fan base and is one of gospel’s most sought after musicians, his previous CD’s had proven difficult to obtain for his supporters due to lack of distribution. After many closed doors at several record labels, Doobie found home at BKS Music Group. BKS signed Doobie Powell to the label and will have the project available online and in retail stores across the country.
This project was to happen a long time ago, but in kairos time, it has come to pass. “This project symbolizes the time that God has ordained for me to come out to the world,” Doobie emphasizes. “The Time is Now” is another confirmation to me that everything happens in Gods timing.” “In Spite of It All” is the first single from the project. It’s Doobie’s continual declaration that in all that he’s been through, he is still here and he will forever rejoice.
