The King’s Men, Biola University’s a cappella student singing group, recently released their second CD titled No Turning Back. The CD features the group’s newest music alongside traditional hymns and worship songs, proving to be a unique listening experience.
Drew Brokke, a senior music and worship major and member of The King’s Men, was challenged to grow as a musician through the recording experience.
“Working on this album was simultaneously one of the most frustrating and rewarding experiences of my life,” said Brokke. “I was never so aware of my faults as a musician as then, but the rewards for working through them have been more than worth it. I feel so privileged to have been a part of it.”
Since 1986, The King’s Men, have performed and provided a unique style of music ranging from classical works by Morten Lauridsen to popular works arranged by M-Pact, Glad, and Walt Harrah. Though the members change each year, The King’s Men still continue to remain strong and their desire is that God be extolled through their talents.
Walt Harrah, the producer of No Turning Back, believes the experience was invaluable for the group.
“It was a tremendous growing experience for the singers, both in their respect of each other’s talent, as well as respect for the process of making a recording,” Harrah said.
