 “If you never take risk, you will never get the ultimate reward.”
 – Isaac Carree


“There’s no one like me because God only made one me and I’m 
 comfortable doing me,” confesses award-winning singer, songwriter 
 and producer Isaac Carree. “So I embrace whatever comes with that!” 
 Carree has been converting listeners to believers ever since he 
 launched his career over 25 years ago with his earnest and unique 
 artistry that has landed him at #1 on Gospel Billboard Charts and 
 Gospel radio multiple times. After taking a six-year pause from his 
 solo recording career, Carree is back with his highly anticipated 
 recording, No Risk No Reward, set for release March 20, 2020 on 
 Shanachie Entertainment. Taking risks is something the Atlanta 
 based Renaissance man is well acquainted with. His motto is “Why 
 not?!” He explains, “I’m intentional about everything I do. 
 Sometimes I do things even if I am afraid, but I do it! WHY NOT?!” 
 It is this spirit that led the singer to step away from the 
 recording scene to allow himself the opportunity to explore various 
 creative avenues. “Allowing myself this time afforded me the 
 opportunity to shift the trajectory of my mind and to reset to 
 prepare for this moment now!,” shares Carree. “I had the life 
 changing experience of touring with Diddy and the Bad Boy Reunion 
 Tour. I also toured with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill on the Soul II 
 Soul World Tour and had the time of my life. After being away from 
 the industry and not having new music out for six years, it feels 
 really good to be back and to partner with Shanachie who believes 
 in my vision.” Carree also penned his first book Service: My Words. 
 My Life. My Truth. and launched his own music conference, The Plug, 
 in Atlanta.

 Shanachie Entertainment General Manager Randall Grass states “One 
 listen to the quality of Isaac’s voice and stellar production let’s 
 you know that he is special. We are proud to bring his new music to 
 Gospel fans eager for a contemporary iteration of the Gospel 
 message.”

 No Risk No Reward features the album’s first and chart-climbing 
 single “HER.” This stunning ballad is a powerful anthem from men to 
 their woman. It is Isaac Carree’s tribute to his wife Dietra. “I 
 love my wife,” says Carree. “She deserves NOTHING but the best! 
 We’ve grown together, we’ve had our ups and our downs but she stuck 
 with me by my side. She’s loyal, she’s a prayer warrior, she’s the 
 mother of our child, so this song embodies how GRATEFUL to God I am 
 for HER!”


 Like Kirk Franklin, The Winans and Andre Crouch before him, with No 
 Risk No Reward Isaac Carree stretches the musical boundaries of 
 Gospel and inspirational R&B to bring the message to a wider 
 audience. As such No Risk No Reward is a beautifully-produced, 
 musically varied album that runs the gamut from fresh cutting edge 
 urban contemporary grooves to old school gospel. For instance “Love 
 Affair” featuring Jazze Pha, opens the album with a kicking groove 
 to deliver the message that Isaac wants a love affair “between you, 
 God and me,” while the hit single “HER” is a hymn to his wife that 
 makes an explicit connection between their love and the divine, 
 setting a template for committed Christian love. Then there’s “What 
 Kind Of Man,” featuring Lisa Knowles and The Brown Singers, which 
 samples Ray Charles’ classic “What Kind Of Man Is This,” itself 
 based on an old gospel hymn, and flips the tune back into the 
 Gospel roots of Isaac’s mother’s church. “I Don’t Wanna Go” is a 
 gorgeous, organ-fueled Gospel ballad expressing the necessity of 
 Godly connection. Along the way there is a stunning 
 country-flavored ballad “Woman First” which highlights members from 
 Tim McGraw’s band: keyboardist Billy Nobel, guitarists Bob Miner 
 and Denny Hemingson and fiddler Deano Brown. The composition is a 
 hymn to Isaac’s life partner and an admonition to appreciate women 
 and not neglect them. The memorable song continues the theme of 
 celebrating, uplifting and supporting women. The twelve songs and 
 two interludes are conceived as a continuous musical journey, a 
 true album experience. No Risk No Reward concludes with “4 The 
 Win,” featuring Da’ T.R.U.T.H and Parker Dawkins. It’s a majestic 
 piano-and-strings-led hymn of redemption, ending the album on a 
 note of triumph. It is fitting as Carree’s anticipated recording is 
 a triumphant tour-de-force that is all-too-rare on the current 
 musical landscape.

No Risk No Reward is Isaac Carree’s third solo recording and is 
 produced by Dove Award-winner and two-time Grammy Award-winning 
 producer Blac Elvis, who has produced hits for everyone from 
 Beyoncé (“Ego”) to Fergie (“Glamorous”) Ciara (“Promise”), Usher 
 (“Lil’ Freak) and Smokie Norful (“Nothing Is Impossible”). Elvis 
 states, “Working with an artist like Isaac Carree is a breath of 
 fresh air! I don’t simply wanna label him a gospel artist because 
 he’s so much more! His artistry is expressed in so many different 
 ways and will appeal to so many different audiences. From the music 
 we’re creating, to the show experience we’re producing, I want 
 people to take away that this is an experience of a lifetime. 
 Something to remember!”

Isaac Carree launched his career as a soloist with John P. Kee & 
 New Life Community Choir and later on with his own award-winning 
 Gospel quartet, Men of Standard. His soulful velvety tenor, 
 heavenly runs, smooth production and ability to infuse various 
 genres into his irresistible sound, have allowed him to collaborate 
 with everyone from Kirk Franklin and Mary Mary to Donnie McClurkin, 
 Marvin Sapp and Israel Houghton, among others. The transcendent 
 messages of Carree’s hits like “Trust In God,” “In Your Will” and 
 “In The Middle” demonstrate the power of God’s redemption and 
 affirms his mission to inspire us to persevere and remember that it 
 is never too late to start over.

 No Risk No Reward follows 2013’s Reset, which debuted on the 
 Billboard Gospel Chart at #1 and featured the hit singles “Clean 
 This House” and “But God.” The album earned four BMI Awards and two 
 Dove nominations. 2011’s Uncommon Me, Carree’s debut solo album, 
 also debuted at #1 and garnered him the prestigious Stellar Award 
 for Producer of the Year, along with four more nominations, 
 including Contemporary Male Vocalist of the Year and New Artist of 
 the Year. The single “In the Middle” hit #1 on Billboard’s Gospel 
 chart and won ASCAP’s award of Song Of The Year in 2012.

 Isaac Carree’s anticipated return on No Risk No Reward does not 
 disappoint.  The Atlanta based Carree shares, “Anyone who has 
 followed my solo career knows that I like to take musical risks and 
 push the envelope. This album is no different. Joining forces with 
 producers Blac Elvis and Red Kulture has been inspiring! I wanted a 
 different energy, a different sound, and a different vibration to 
 this music. And we accomplished that! So stay tuned… I’m BACK!”
