Nashville, Tenn. (June 2015) – Finding Favour is releasing another new song from their upcoming new album, Reborn. “Be Like You” is a father themed tune that was co-written by lead singer Blake NeeSmith and songwriter Jeff Pardo.
Finding Favour also taped a powerful video in support of the song, with Blake NeeSmith delivering the performance segments. The story line is of a firefighter who is struggling to balance his work and home life, in order to spend more time with his young children. With the help of his wife, he turns to God for help and finds the answers he has been searching for. The video link is here: https://youtu.be/nqZoCJ9OV0U.
“I wrote this song or prayer, if you will, asking God for a little help before my daughter was born,” explains NeeSmith. “Our children follow in our footsteps and the greatest example for them is that we follow in the footsteps our Heavenly Father. One of the lines in the song says, If they’re gonna be like me, then God I wanna be like You, and that remains my prayer as a father.”
Next week, Finding Favour will release their first full album, Reborn, on June 23rd. Produced by Casey Brown (Love & the Outcome, All Things New), the new project features 10 new songs that were co-written by the group, along with a reprise of their Top 25 National Christian Audience (NCA) chart hit, “Say Amen.” The first radio single from the album is the anthem ballad, “Cast My Cares,” and is Finding Favour’s fastest chart climbing single to date. Currently, the song has already hit the Top 20 on Billboard’s NCA, Hot AC and AC charts, with airplay on the Air 1 network, K-LOVE network and Sirius XM’s The Message. As of today, fans can stream the entire album online at Relevant Magazine’s “The Drop,” http://www.relevantmagazine.com/the-drop/reborn.

ABOUT GOTEE RECORDS
In 1992, a production team of three talented guys with diverse tastes shared a love for music. Producers Joey Elwood and Todd Collins, along with Grammy-winning artist TobyMac, launched Gotee Records in 1994 after unsuccessfully finding a label deal for the R&B trio, Out of Eden. With a steady focus on artistry, the new label expanded to reflect the diverse interests of its founders. Within 12 months, Christafari, GRITS, and Johnny Q. Public were signed, easily representing four different music categories; R&B, reggae, rap and rock. In the 20 years since Gotee’s founding as a record label, it has launched the careers of Relient K, Jennifer Knapp, Sonicflood and more recently, Jamie Grace, Capital Kings, Finding Favour, Ryan Stevenson and Morgan Harper Nichols. The present day in the Gotee story is much like the label’s early days. Through all the changes in a tumultuous music industry, the boutique label’s independent spirit is maintained through a steady focus on artist development and diversity.
