NOTHINGS TO HARD (Symphonic Dist.) is the fifth Album from Urban Christian Artist Lawrence Hancock. This masterpiece comes on the heels of back-to-back Billboard Gospel Album Sales Charting projects. These 12 Singles give music enthusiasts what they have been asking for…a complete album! Utilizing a pallet of urban musical themes, Hancock continues to captivate with Christ-centered lyrics that evoke the listener to praise and worship.
“In every generation God raises new voices. Voices that fill the void left by those whose voices fade and are no longer fresh. Bishop Lawrence LaVale Hancock is such a fresh voice for a generation that seeks to relate to God and spirituality from a fresh perspective.”
-Bishop Edgar L. Vann, Second Ebenezer Church,
Detouring traditional gospel music, this album’s review is resonating from the church house to the trap house. Deploying a full arsenal of composition skills, Hancock lead out with single, “Let Em Shine!”
“Let ‘Em Shine is a catchy, foot tapping, head bobbing anthem of praise draped in Caribbean infused rhythms matched with a magnetic chorus. Let Em Shine is carefully constructed with nicely placed instrumentation, superb lyrics, vocals and, keyboard and bass/guitar chords. Let Em Shine is an intense and joyful listening experience that will quickly become a listener favorite.”

The Title Track, “Nothings Too Hard,” examines the heart and releases a hope for all to believe God will! A compelling vintage tune “Make It Right” creates the Sunday Morning experience anywhere…dubbed an instant classic! This chorale arrangement welcomes Detroit’s own Latisha Austin, Ulanda Phillips, Kierra Scott, Will Gary, Lawanda Ingram, Katherine Walker, and Lakesha Walker. This down-home number gives the listener a familiar sound, but “wait for it!”
Starting the project with composing 30 tracks, Lawrence recorded 25 of those songs…12 made the album! “Each of the final 12 songs were given a 5 second heat check! If the track didn’t capture me in that time, it was cut…as the teenagers say…Periodt!”
Hancock’s inspiration continues to flow from reflecting upon decades of Salvation. “I spent a lot of time with the pen thinking about how I got here. How to share my experiences with the listener. Challenging myself to go beyond the beats and hooks to a place where the music touches souls…”
“Bishop Lawrence Hancock, Sr. returns with another anointed album that will surely take worship to a Higher Level!”
-Hj Ellison, 92.9 The Wave & WGH 1310AM / Max Media, Hampton Roads, VA
