11th Hour: Press Releases
11th Hour’s third national release, What A Moment, is one that changes everything.
The trio’s vocal power shines with sibling-like harmonies as the album moves from tent-shaking revival to soulful, moving ballads. Reminiscent of previous game-changing music mavericks like The Martins, their youthful energy exudes passion for the Gospel and is reflected through delivery of their deep south style with a flare of today’s contemporary music.
Influences span from the Muscle Shoals blues sound in “Look at Me Now” and Aretha Franklin vocal runs in “Ain’t No Bones” to the modern feel of “When God Shows Up” and “He Welcomes The Beggar.” The latter could easily be Natalie Grant or Mercy Me songs. Each of these influences are from artists that marked a new moment in music. 11th Hour now follows suit.
“Mountain Moving Faith” is the new single that promises more moving moments from 11th Hour, with the fresh approach to Gospel Music that has already brought them #1 success.
Picture This: A powerhouse vocal trio bringing to life incredible songs from award winning writers and stellar arrangements. Put it all together and experience one of the most impressive new groups today.
Amber Eppinette, Jaquita Lindsey, and Grant Gibson—collectively known as 11th Hour—bring heart and talent into their passionate performances. They can deliver on a variety of styles from big ballads like “How Will You Plead” to soulful styles of “Jesus Is In The House” to driving sounds of “No Death.”
Amber co-wrote the first single, “How Will You Plead,” with acclaimed songwriter Dianne Wilkinson. Along with Dianne and Amber, award-winning writers such as Sandy Knight, Phil Cross, Rebecca Peck, Joseph Habedank and many others contribute to this recording.
“We know what God has called us to do,” Amber states, talking about the messages of the songs on Picture This. “When you start talking about a person’s feelings, really getting down to how they feel about something, it captivates the heart. When you’re in a trying time in your life, and really hurting, and Christ comes along and captivates your heart, it’s special.”

A group with a prophetic name and a prophetic album title, 11th Hour chose their name because their passion is to win souls for Christ before the midnight hour. Their first release with Crossroads, Steppin’ Out, also makes a faith statement for a trio that is graduating to national attention in the Gospel world. It was their stunning vocal abilities and dynamics that wowed listeners at this year’s National Quartet Convention, granting them a coveted spot on the event’s main stage.
These same gifts shine on beautiful ballads like “Room With a View” and “He Sees What We Don’t” and carries through the whole project from the groove of “Wake the Land” to the passion and high energy of the first radio single, “Steppin’ Out.” This album is one of the rare treasures of the year. Don’t miss it!
Steppin’ Out releases October 16th.
Arden, NC – September 4, 2012 – One of the industry’s most talked-about new artists, 11th Hour, has just entered a long term recording agreement with Crossroads Entertainment & Marketing. The group is off to a strong start, already receiving multiple top 40 hits in the Singing News radio airplay charts and a recent top 10 nomination for Horizon Artist Of The Year in the 2012 Singing News Fan Awards.
“What a blessing,” says group member Amber Eppinette. “Crossroads is such a reputable company, representing the finest Christian music artists. Being considered a part of their family is such an honor. 11th Hour’s prayer is to always be found doing the will of God and we are very thankful He has led us to Chris White and Crossroads. We look forward to a long and successful relationship for many years to come!”
Crossroads executive Chris White states, “I got a call from Steve French with the Kingdom Heirs late on a Sunday night. He said, ‘We just worked with a group you need to sign. They are incredible!’ Since we don’t sign very many new artists these days, I hesitated, but then I thought that they must be special for him to call me. Truth is, they are, and I’m glad I took Steve’s advice.”
The new record, titled Steppin’ Out, is scheduled for an October 16th street date.
