Christian rapper Psalt-E is the winner of The Gospel Industry Network 2021 Regional Artist Choice Competition. In 2021, The Gospel Iindustry Network held their first industry Summit in Chicago, IL and launched a YouTube subscription campaign to give independent artists an opportunity to garner visibility in their region and win an opportunity for national exposure. Over 32 videos where submitted from indie choirs, groups, and soloist in Traditional, Contemporary, Worship, Rap and Quartet genres, Psalt-E received the most votes to take the first place.
Psalt-E is a singer, songwriter, worship leader, and rapper from Fort Hood, TX, residing in Syracuse, NY. Her name is pronounced "salty" and is from the scripture Matthew 5:13 - Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted?
Psalt-E celebrates her "psaltiness" by paying homage to God for preserving her unique flavor that she almost eradicated trying to fit into conformity and the standards of this world. Psalt-E has finely tuned her authentic self and is a living testimony transparently sharing this truth. She released her first single, "#DCMO" (Don't Count Me Out), in 2016. In 2019 she released her debut album THE PSALT EP. The 6-song EP includes her hit single "Conqueror", performed with a deliberate flow of hard-hitting lyrics boasting the confidence and faith we should have in Christ and ourselves. MC Ron G and Kegan Miller join her on the R&B infused jam "Armor."
Psalt-E is a two-time Gospel Choice Music Award nominee, a 2021 Gospel Hip Hop Award nominee, and won the 2019 Pressing Towards Your Vision - Holy Hip Hop artist of the year award. She also picked up a 2021 Prayze Factor Award for Rhythm and Gospel Solo Artist of the year. This rising star doesn't focus on the accolades; instead, she focuses on inspiring the world with her music. She will be releasing a new single, "Mountaintopz" and a podcast series "Psalt-E Time" in March.
