Josie Aiello and Hal Sacks, who traveled in the same musical circles for years, always knew they had a project in their future. What resulted is a two-song EP, “In The Wilderness,” featuring the funk-rock infused lead single and title track, answered with “That’s Why I Praise Thee – Sunday’s Best,” a new production of the Wayman Tisdale and Tracy Carter instrumental, “Sunday’s Best” featuring Josie’s new lyric, available September 18 on iTunes and Amazon.

That’s Why I Praise Thee - Sunday’s Best

“When Josie and I started looking at songs for this project, I immediately thought of the instrumental track “Sunday’s Best” featuring Wayman Tisdale, Kirk Whalum and Jonathan Butler. It features a very catchy melody that just needed a positive gospel lyric which Josie provided and a new gospel groove...hence the birth of ‘That’s Why I Praise Thee – Sunday’s Best.’”

In the Wilderness

“’In The Wilderness’ reflects a time where I desperately needed to hear clearly from God. It’s
the place I needed far away from the noise and distractions of everyday life,” Aiello reflected. “It’sthe space I needed for God to provide His healing and restoration. It’s where God met me, answered me and healed me. It’s all about coming out of the wilderness and into the glory of God.”
