BIO

Every so often a new artist comes around that not only presents a fresh wind of artistry and creativity, but

has a genuine passion and zest for presenting the gospel of Jesus Christ to all of God’s people. The diversity

in his music (spanning from urban gospel to Contemporary Christian Music) and an amazing gift for songwriting

sets Orlando “Substance” Rodriguez and his music ministry in position for global impact.

“Substance stands for going beyond what the eyes can see – beneath the surface and dealing with what is real,”

explains Substance. “Regardless of what others see on the outside, we should have the Substance of Jesus

Christ on the inside. In essence it’s all about living life from the inside out versus living life from the

outside in.”

Mostly known for his sincere passion for the Lord and his ability to creatively reflect his passion for Jesus

Christ, Substance has in a short time developed a national following that crosses genres from Urban Gospel to

CCM. Throughout his music career, Substance has performed hundreds of concerts, including concert openers for

such notables as Donnie McClurkin, Out of Eden, and Ben Tankard.

As an artist, Substance has performed in over 40 cities in the United States and has been featured on major

Christian television shows such as TCT’s I’m just saying, The Word Network, Bobby Jones Gospel, and TBN’s

Praise the Lord. As a collaborator, Substance has written songs with some of the industry’s most sought after

songwriters – Eddie Tucker, Steve Siler, Dwight Liles and Tony Wood -to name a few. Substance is a well

rounded singer/songwriter/producer who has an unrelenting work ethic in both the recording studio and on the

road.

On the horizon, Substance is currently working on his debut project in gospel music with his forthcoming self

titled album Turn The World Off. For this effort, Substance has tapped the skills of

hit making producer Chuck Alkazian (Percy Bady, Desmond Pringle, Christina Aguilera) of Pearl Sound Studios

(Canton, MI) to capture his highly unique musical talent and anointing.

Turn The World Off will feature songs like “Reach Out,” an expressively endearing song

that invokes a call to action – for the body of Christ to not only be concerned, but to offer hope and to serve

those in need. “This song is an encouragement to impact outside the four walls of the church,” says Substance.

“When we extend our hand to help those in need, we can show God’s love in a practical way. This is my anthem

on what ministry is all about to me, which is serving others with the love of Jesus Christ.”

Orlando “Substance” Rodriguez is musically inclined, lyrically complete, and approachable. He is an artist who

seeks God daily to impact more people with Jesus Christ through his music. He is a dedicated

singer/songwriter, who has taken the road less traveled, gaining support with relentless touring and sharing of

the gospel of Jesus Christ. When asked how he sees himself, his simple answer is, “As a servant of the Lord

and God’s people.”
