African-American gospel music

with electric steel guitar and vocal. 

As the music moves from sanctuary

to concert hall --

including the Hollywood Bowl,

the Kennedy Center,

Brooklyn Academy of Music

& Symphony Space --

secular audiences are now able

to appreciate a performance

both devoted and rocking.

The Campbell Brothers

Beyond The 4 Walls marks

the triumphant return

of the Campbell Brothers

to studio recording

after a hiatus of far too many years.

Since they were first heard

outside their church

almost fifteen years ago,

the group has been on an incredible

and often arduous journey,

balancing their faith with their desire

to take their music to new audiences.

The brothers alternatively

pluck heartstrings

and wail righteously

as practitioners of Sacred Steel -

African-American gospel music

with electric steel guitar and vocals.

National Public Radio said

that the Campbell Brothers' music is,

''every bit as earth-shattering

as (Robert) Johnson's music

was in the '30s.

It's a soul-stirring blend of gospel

and the power and volume

of electric blues and rock,

a sound as hot as brimstone

that kicks holy butt.

It's also shredding perceptions

of country's signature instrument

and the limitations

of church music.''
