“Things have been pretty tough over the last few years, and this song was written at a time when I was wanting certain things to happen,” says Kim Garcia, co-vocalist for the amazing Eagle Rock Gospel Singers of the band’s new single, “Momma Told Me.” “Wanting too much, I felt unhappy, sad, depressed. Very low. My mother is the wisest, most caring, most beautiful person I could ever know. Even though it’s been several years without her in this world, I still think of her every day,” she continues. “ She was always honest and taught me that my life wasn’t going to be perfect. I’m going to mess up a lot (and I have), but I will always have my faith — even when I’m at my lowest.”
Though it is about life’s trials, in classic ERGS fashion, the song is delivered with righteous, fiery conviction, supported on a firm and foundational undercurrent of hope. The band is gearing up to release a new album, No Glory, on July 14th. Today, they unleash a video for the single, directed by Ben Guzman and filmed in a secret (backyard patio) location in the hills of Echo Park on a hot Saturday afternoon. “We got in trouble with a neighbor for being a little too loud, but all in all, I think it came out pretty great,” Garcia laughs. For the record, so do we.
Without further ado, Mother Church Pew proudly presents “Momma Told Me,” the new video from the Eagle Rock Gospel Singers:
