Bible Belt Blues
By Paula Vega Vondenstein
Harold and Paula officially met on Christmas Day of 2014 when Harold responded to Paula’s online profile on Christian Mingle. Paula knew exactly what she was looking for and wrote a very tight profile asking for a Christian musician and someone who would not set limits on what God could accomplish through him. Harold responded and the rest is history.
During the past four years which included a whirlwind romance and a quaint church wedding 10 months later, Paula and Harold set out to create their Gateway To Glory YouTube Channel which houses Paula’s bible verse narrations set to motion video along with Harold’s music he had created and recorded before they met and married. Harold also created a YouTube Channel: My Daily Walk in Deliverance.
But nothing could compare with the magnitude of the journey that God now has them on with the creation of their very own music genre, Bible Belt Blues, with original Bentonia blues influenced music with bold, biblically sound lyrics, like nothing Paula had ever heard before in church or on Christian radio. Repentance songs, Invitation songs, Prayer songs, Closing songs, and Church Revival songs. All with the hauntingly beautiful D and E minor chords and gritty guitar picking sounds of the early Mississippi Bentonia blues style.
Some songs even include harmonica solos. In “The Glory Belongs To You, Lord” Harold made the harmonica cry. All are recorded in the 444 Hz healing frequency (the key of David.)
Embark with us on our journey as you immerse yourself in our very first album, “I’m Not Ashamed To Be A Christian.” We pray that our music touches your heart and stirs your soul to the things of God and that you come back wanting more. Our second album is scheduled to be released in early spring of 2019. All glory and honor goes to our risen Savior, Jesus Christ.
