The Joy Ride

At some point, we crossed over from enthusiasm, right past ambivalence, straight to sheer loathing of snow. Where did it all go wrong?

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Natalie Grant

Natalie Grant is an award winning singer and songwriter. She won four consecutive Female Vocalist of the Year Awards (2006-2009) at the Dove's and is never far from the top of the charts.  Born in Seattle, she currently lives in Nashville with her Canadian music producer husband, Bernie Herms, and their three daughters which includes a set of twins.  Beyond her artistry, Natalie Grant is an advocate for victims of human trafficking. Abolition International, which Grant founded in 2005 under the name The Home Foundation, has raised over a quarter of a million dollars to fight the trafficking of women and children for the purpose of sexual exploitation.

Natalie is now hosting It Takes A Church on The Game Show Network. This reality dating series lets churches set up their most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes, cover them in prayer and then watch their awkward blind dates. Sounds lovely.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Audio Adrenaline

Mark Stuart and Will McGinniss met at Kentucky Christian University. Stuart and his brother David were putting together a rock band and McGinniss struck up a friendship with the pair. Along with David and Barry Blair they launched a band called A-180. The band recorded two independent albums before signing a record contract with ForeFront Records. It was then that they officially became Audio Adrenaline.

Christian music would never be the same - or youth camp. Hits like Big House and We're A Band propelled the band to the forefront of a thriving Christian rock scene in the mid-90s. They were headliners for every Christian festival on the planet - and toured ceaselessly. Ultimately, that took a toll on their families and relationships. Exhaustion and family strain, plus a vocal disease for lead singer Mark Stuart led to the end of Audio Adrenaline.

Or so it seemed...

Two years ago the band reformed with Kevin Max (formerly of dcTalk) as the new lead singer - and Mark Stuart (founder/original lead singer) writing and producing for the band (still unable to sing).  Proceeds from the band's new album went to fund the Hands & Feet Project in Haiti!

Turns out - Audio Adrenaline was greatly missed and the Kings & Queens album became their most successful to date! Since their return, Kevin Max has departed as lead singer, replaced by Josh Engler of Adandon - and then Josh was replaced by Adam Agee of Stellar Kart. It’s been a whirlwind. Now there are ZERO original members in Audio Adrenaline, but the legacy lives on with a new generation taking on the mantle.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Dante Schmitz

Dante’s musical career started out like many other musicians from the bible belt of America, with a humble role in the church choir on Sunday mornings. Initially it was just a way to be more involved with his church and has since developed into a career, a ministry, and a passion. He has now been singing and performing praise and worship music for almost ten years.

Dante has been blessed to regularly lead worship at two prominent churches in Tulsa. He leads a contemporary, acoustic service at Kirk of the Hills Church on Sunday mornings and also leads a full band service on Sunday evenings at the Church of Saint Mary.

As a fun side-project, Dante also has a rock band called Dante & The Hawks. He loves toying with musical expression, but his heart is always in leading worship.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Unspoken

Unspoken first came together after lead singer Chad Mattson met guitarist Mike Gomez on a mission trip in the Dominican Republic. Chad had been struggling with drug and alcohol addiction for years, and decided to go on a mission trip to re-build his relationship with God. It was there in the Dominican Republic where Chad’s eyes were opened and he came to know Christ in a powerful way - and both Chad and Mike realized God was calling them to something big!

Chad and Mike began playing music together, and performing live shows based out of Maine. Eventually, bass player Jon Lowry and drummer Ariel Munoz from Puerto Rico, joined the duo and Unspoken was born.

Ministry: In addition to their music, the band is involved with Celebrate Recovery, a faith-based 12-step recovery program for substance abuse.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Christy Nockels

Christy Nockels was born in Ft. Worth, TX and grew up in Oklahoma as the daughter of a pastor and a piano teacher, which infused her heart early with a love for both music and God's word.

In the mid-90s, Christy and her husband Nathan toured the world leading worship, recording albums and winning Dove Awards as the band Watermark. In the mid-2000s the Nockels ended Watermark to help plant a church in Atlanta, GA with Pastor Louie Giglio. And so Passion City Church was born. Yep. The one with Chris Tomlin. That hosts the Passion Conferences. That church.

So at this point Christy is a loving wife, mother to three, worship pastor at a mega-church, music teacher to scores of young worship leaders, a leading member of the award winning Passion worship team (also featuring Chris Tomlin, Kristian Stanfill, David Crowder and many more) and has taken up recording incredible solo albums (produced by her husband) as well.

Enough, Already!: In her spare time Christy Nockels writes and publishes poetry. And as a burgeoning interior designer - she just had her home featured in last Fall’s Better Homes & Gardens. Come on!

Favorite Bible Verse: Psalm 37: 4-6 - “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn and the justice (or vindication) of your cause like the noonday sun.”

ARTIST OF THE DAY
The Afters

When The Afters broke out onto the scene, it didn't seem like anything could stop them. Their music was fun, their attitudes were joyful and nothing could slow them down!

But life's circumstances quickly changed everything. After losing their longtime friend and manager to a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer, two band members decided to part ways with the band, and then there was a life-threatening car wreck, followed by a new member of the band losing a close friend just one week after joining the group.

It was a rough season of change for The Afters. Holding on to their faith and their passion for making music has kept the band focused throughout the mess of it all. Through the pain, faith grew in abundance and that is definitely the message behind their most recent releases.

Ancient History: The four original members of The Afters met while working at a Starbucks together. The band's original name was Screaming Mimes - then they changed it to Blisse. Thankfully a producer talked them into the The Afters.

TV: The Afters' music has been featured on television shows and promos for shows on almost every major network and various cable shows as well - including Grey's Anatomy, Rachel Ray, Dr. Phil, The Biggest Loser, Army Wives, You Deserve It, October Baby, So You Think You Can Dance, Americas Got Talent, The Hills, The Vineyard and more!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Plumb

Tiffany Arbuckle Lee is the voice and face of the Christian band Plumb. Off and on, Plumb has been making amazing music that is never quite what the standard of the day happens to be. Call it being "before their time" or retro or inventive - Plumb pulls heartstrings with deep, passionate lyrics and musically takes listeners to a place they can't get to through any other artist.

Tiffany Lee grew up in Fayetteville, GA and started her career as a backup singer. Her career is in its second decade and her music has been featured on six feature films (including Bruce Almighty) and many television shows (mostly on the CW). As a busy mom, Plumb doesn't have many concerts, but she is a studio rat and releases music once in a blue moon.

Over the past few years Tiffany has shared with her fans the struggle to restore her broken marriage. Through God’s presence, hard work and the support of their local church, the Lees rebuilt their family from a very desperate spot - and now try to help others along that journey. Their story is chronicled in Tiffany Lee’s first book I Need You Now.  

Street Cred: Tiffany Lee also writes for other singers - including Michelle Branch, Kimberly Locke and Mandy Moore.
