PEOPLE OF THE EARTH

Electronic Press Kit



BIO

Based out of Somerset Kentucky, worship artists People of the Earth is comprised of band members Dustin Fenison (Vocals / Guitar), Jorge Lopez Jr. (Drums), Steve Hampton (Guitar), and Josh Lopez (Keys, Vocals).  The band released their debut album "We Are People of the Earth" in 2015 and began touring across the country at camps, conferences, and festivals. They followed that project up with an EP in 2017 titled “In All Things”.  The success of this EP led to an exclusive worldwide distribution deal with Capitol Christian Music Group in 2018. The band’s first single release with CapitolCMG called “Come to Jesus (Reconciliation Hymn)” has been the fastest streaming song to date in the band’s catalog. This momentum provides the platform upon which their new EP will be released in January of 2019.  The EP, simply titled “Victory”, features seven songs that speak to the finished work of Jesus being the reality that His children live in.
